On a recent episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Mimi Faust hinted that she had been seeing someone else. It turns out the previous rumors that she was dating WNBA star Tamera Young may actually be true. The problem is, Tamera has been very publicly involved with another female basketball player who doesn’t seem too pleased to find out that her girlfriend has been hooking up with the VH1 reality star.
When Mimi recently met up with Chris on LHHATL, the two women began arguing about their relationship or lack of a relationship. After the two split, Mimi began dating another woman whose identity she tried to keep private. It turns out that reports from months ago were right, according to Fameolous, and her new boo is WNBA star Tamera Young.

The problem is, Tamera was apparently not so single when she hooked up with Mimi Faust. After Mimi posted a picture of herself and Tamera together, Cappie Pondexter made sure to respond. She also posted a picture of herself and Tamera on Instagram. The photo was captioned, “Guess that makes two of us #sharingiscaringright.”
To make things even more complicated, Tamera Young is actually Stevie J’s friend. The Chicago Sky guard was seen on an episode of Stevie J & Joseline Go Hollywood. when Stevie introduced her to his older daughter, according to Ask Kissy. Is Tamera hanging out with his younger daughter Eva now too? If she’s really dating Mimi, then there is a great chance she knows Stevie’s youngest daughter, as well.
It was soon after Tamera was seen on reality TV that she was romantically linked to Mimi Faust. The WNBA star reportedly shared a picture of herself and Mimi looking rather hugged up on each other back in April. This was around the time that LHHATL fans learned that Mimi and Chris had broken up, and many fans were shocked that Mii had already moved on. The post was quickly deleted but not before rumors started to circulate that Mimi was still dating women and had definitely moved on from Chris Gould.

While some Love & Hip Hop Atlanta fans think that Mimi’s newfound gay lifestyle is all for the reality TV cameras, it looks like she might be getting pretty serious with Tamera Young. Wetpaint reported that Mimi and Tamera are still dating even months after the initial rumors started. There may even be a girlfriend reveal at the upcoming LHHATL reunion.
It’ll be interesting to see what Stevie J thinks of Mimi’s newest girlfriend. He didn’t seem too thrilled when she introduced Chris, but Tamera is actually one of Stevie’s friends. Also considering that Stevie spent some time crashing at Mimi’s house, there’s no way that he didn’t know about Mimi’s new love interest.
With all of the drama going on with the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta cast and rumors that Mona Scott-Young wants to recast the entire show, it’s hard to tell who is telling the truth, and who is trying to make themselves more interesting.
Is Mimi Faust’s relationship with Tamera Young real or is it for the cameras? Time will certainly tell, and many fans hope Mimi will at least admit that she is dating Tamera during the LHHATL reunion show and possibly even bring her out. After all, it’s not like she hasn’t been on reality TV before with Mimi’s ex, Stevie J.
Part one of the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5 reunion airs Monday, August 1 at 8 p.m./7 p.m. Central on VH1.
