What is Tami Roman and Reggie Youngblood's net worth? 'Basketball Wives' star never let 17-year age gap dim romance
With an age difference of 17 years between them, Tammi Roman and Reggie Youngblood make a very unlikely couple, but that doesn't stop them from continuing to strengthen their relationship. As the couple get ready to appear on VH1's 'Love & Hip Hop: It's a Love Thing' special to spill the tea on their relationship, we wanted to look back at how the couple got together and managed to keep their relationship alive for almost eight years and also their net worth.
Prior to meeting her current husband, Reggie, Tami was married to NBA player Kenny Anderson and have two children together, Tami and Kenny divorced in 2001. Following her divorce, she began focussing on building her career in the entertainment industry. She became popular as the star of 'Basketball Wives'. On the show, we were introduced to her much younger boyfriend, Reggie. He is a former NFL player and seventeen years younger.
The couple's relationship began progressing really well. Tami thought she would never find love or get married again following her divorce, but Reggie changed her perception. In an interview with Sister Circle Live, she said, "I'm 48 and I don’t want to spend the rest of my life by myself. And this man genuinely loves me. And this is something that he wants and never experienced. I'd be selfish to not travel down that road with someone who I really love and who loves me."
The couple married secretly in Las Vegas in 2018. The couple didn't reveal the details of their marriage until a year later. Reggie and Tami had to battle their own share of relationship woes, alongside rumors of their split. Reggie made it clear that Tami and he weren't going to split anytime soon. He posted on his Instagram, "Hate to let y'all down," he wrote, "but [Tami] and I are riding together until the wheels fall off."
Tami had a miscarriage while trying to have a baby with Reggie. During her cameo on 'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta', she spoke about how devastating it was for the couple. Thankfully, the couple managed to still stay strong and continued to work on their relationship, including appearing on 'Marriage Boot Camp'. They very smartly managed to make some coins while strengthening their relationship. This boosted the couple's net worth.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Tami's net worth is estimated at $3.5 million. While Reggie's net worth is estimated at $200,000 according to Wiki Net Worth. Reggie's NFL career came to an abrupt end following some injuries. So, he turned to working in the trucking industry and became an owner of a trucking company, while also appearing on various reality shows with his wife. The couple seems to be in a good and happy place, both in terms of relationship and finances.
'Love & Hip Hop: It's a Love Thing' premieres on February 1, at 8.7c only on VH1.
