There is one thing holding Brandon Jennings and Tae Heckard back from tying the knot … Her domestic partnership with another woman.
There have been reports circulating that Tae and the NBA player are engaged and are ready to say “I do.” But before the lovebirds can walk down the aisle, Tae needs to legally end her domestic partnership.
TMZ first broke the story, Heckard domestically partnered up with a woman named Monique Blanton back in 2008 and that she took Monique’s last name. Heckard states in the court documents, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, that she and Monique separated in 2011, citing irreconcilable differences.
According to the docs, Tae has filed to reinstate her last name … In which we can only assume is so that she can eventually take Brandon’s.
It’s unclear whether or not Tae and Monique were in a full fledged committed relationship, but there are reports suggesting that the two registered for domestic partnership simply to save on taxes.
Neither Brandon or Tae, who first announced their relationship via social media earlier this year, have confirmed their engagement. But it’s safe to say that their love is moving to the next level because Tae is sporting a HUGE rock on her ring finger.
