If celebrity wives know how to do anything, then it is to eventually branch out of their husband’s shadows by developing their own celebrity status. The entire Real Housewives franchise and relative shows are the proof of that, but not all can reach stardom at the level of someone like Tami Roman.
You all know a little about her married life and former husband if you see her show ‘Basketball Wives.’ However, here we are also discussing her children and current married life. Learn it along with her net worth and bio.
Tami Brown’s Past Married Life, Children, and Divorce
Tami Brown came into the highlight due to her married life with former basketball player Kenny Anderson. Kenny Anderson was active in the NBA from 1991 to 2003, playing for several teams but most notable as part of the Boston Celtics. They got married from 1994 but 7 long years later decided to get a divorce in 2001.
The couple together has two children, both of whom are daughters. They were Lyric and Jazz Anderson whom we will talk about in detail a little later. After their divorce, Tami Roman and her ex-husband faced a bit of a conflict in 2005 when he stopped paying her the agreed $8,500 in child support. Kenny, at that time, was having financial troubles as later that year, he even filed for bankruptcy.
Nevertheless, Tami would drag him to the court and force him to pay a staggering increase of $800,000 as child support. Despite such messy aftermath of their divorce, the couple does not seem to hold a lot of bad blood towards each other. When Kenny Anderson recently suffered from a health problem, earlier this year, Tami Roman was sure to thank all the people who wished for his speedy recovery on social media.
Kenny Anderson got married and divorced with second wife Tamiyka Lockhart after Tami Roman. He is currently married to third wife Natasha since 2004. He altogether has eight children with five different women.
Tami Brown’s Children
Tami Brown has two children who are; Lyric and Jazz Anderson, who are growing to be gorgeous, successful women. Both of them have started to venture into their solo career which seems to hold a bright future for both of them
Lyric Anderson’s Net Worth and Bio
Lyric Anderson was born on September 30, 1994, in New York City, New York, which makes 25 years old. She has pursued a career in modeling, acting, and screenwriting, which so far has paid off well for her. Lyric Anderson’s current net worth at such a young age is around $1 million, so “paid off” will be the correct way to explain it.
Lyric has a petite yet curvy body with a beautiful face, which makes her perfect model material. Even as a child, she would model for brands like Mattel, Baby Phat, and Payless Shoes for Ford models. She also wore ‘Basketball Wives’ co-star Jennifer Williams’s clothing line called ‘Classy Girl Wardrobe.’
Despite being so attractive, even she became subject to internet bullies and criticism for being “too thin.” Similar comments can also be found in her Instagram posts. Lyric Anderson, at one point, even considered getting plastic surgery like breast implants because of this. However, we find her beautiful, just as she is, in her natural state.
Lyric already had a little credibility after appearing in all of her mother’s reality TV shows. However, she decided to fan out and now has been part of a web-series called ‘Life Series.’ Both she and her mother, Tami Brown, have been promoting the series, and hopefully, it gets excellent feedback.
Jazz Anderson’s Net Worth and Bio
Jazz Anderson was born on June 19, 1996, in Beverly Hills, California. She, unlike her sibling sister, is aspiring towards a career of becoming a rapper but has also shared one in acting. Jazz Anderson has been pointed out for looking very similar to her mother, Tami Brown. If anything, she is a little prettier version of her mother, no offense to Tami.
Jazz Anderson as a child held appearances in many TV films and series like ‘The Last Stand,’ ‘Hell on Earth,’ and ‘City Girls.’ Then Jazz began her rap career initially as the half part of a rap duo named Red Cup $quad. They came out with the song ‘Real Love Story,’ but Jazz wanted to try a solo career and released a single herself called ‘All I Want,’ which had great positive feedback.
The Word is that Jazz Anderson is already working on her new project with Stevie J, who also stars in ‘Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta.’ Jazz Anderson raised a lot of eyebrows recently after she poked fun on ‘Basketball Wives’ producer and leading cast member, Shaunie O’Neal‘s casting choices.
Despite rapping, Jazz also seems to have her father’s athletic genes and passion for basketball. She even played at the NCAA level for Prairie View A&M University. Her net worth is still up to debate as sources claim it to be anywhere from $1 million to $5 million as of 2019.
Tami Roman Married to New Husband?
Yes, Tami Roman is married to longtime boyfriend Reggie Youngblood, who is 17 years younger than his wife. Reggie Youngblood was a former college Football player who had prospects of joining the NFL, but for some reason, it never came to fruition.
Tami Roman and Reggie Youngblood got married secretly last year on August 18, 2018, just a day after they received their marriage certificate. It makes sense that they chose Las Vegas as their wedding destination, which is famous for Eloping and secret weddings. After they started dating in 2013, they have gone through lots of ups and downs in their life.
The question of marriage has been brought up several times in the past with Tami Roman even refusing to get married a couple of times. It looks like she finally gave in, and as long as they got married and lived happily ever after, we don’t care much about their troublesome past.
As for why Tami kept it a secret, she had this to say, “I feel like I don’t really need to disclose that I’m married because I don’t know who will be genuinely happy, who would really care,” she explains. “Rather than go through all those emotions and figure out who’s real and who’s not, I’ll just keep the s–t to myself.”
Does She Have Children with Husband Reggie?
Tami Brown, back in 2015, came very close to having another baby, which would have been her first child with now-husband Reggie Youngblood. Her fans were ecstatic to hear that Lyric and Jazz Anderson would be getting a sibling. They made the good news announcement on June 22, 2015, that she was six weeks pregnant.
However, almost not even five weeks later, tragedy struck the couple as they announced to all their fans that Tami had a miscarriage. An unborn child’s passing is always heavy on a family, especially a mother. However, Tami wasn’t completely clueless about the risks leading up to it. She has a prolapsed uterus and diabetes, which would increase her blood pressure.
Announcing the saddening news, she had this to say to all her fans and haters, “This is a tough time for us. It is the worst pain I’ve felt since losing my mother. I want people to understand the sensitivity of this situation. We are hurting and negative comments, don’t help.”
However, that was over four years ago, and she just got married. There is a silver lining to everything and for Tami; she has a loving husband, beautiful daughters, and a vast army of fans supporting her all the way.
