Why did Sierra Gates dump BK Brasco? 'LHHATL' star called it quits a week after engagement
The engagement celebrations didn't last for too long for 'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta' stars Sierra and BK Brasco as things quickly went south
Sierra Gates and her rapper boyfriend BK Brasco's rocky relationship has been well-documented on VH1's 'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta'. So when the couple announced their engagement in December, everybody was left surprised.
Why did Sierra Gates and BK Brasco split up?
The rapper proposed to the 'LHHATL' star on December 5 at the opening party of his boutique in Atlanta. Sierra told Page Six about how she knew it was time for them to take their relationship to the next level. She said, "It really hit me like, wow, he’s about to have a store. This is our fifth year of being in a relationship and I was like, I need a ring. This is a big business and me and BK, we are a couple. I did not want to be a part of something that I wasn’t getting 50-50 on. When you’re dating, nothing is promised. So I need to be a wife, not a girlfriend anymore.”
But the celebrations didn't last for too long, as things quickly went south almost immediately after their engagement. According to reports, the presence of BK's baby mama at the engagement celebrations didn't sit well with Sierra. A source close to the couple told The Shade Room that the couple's engagement ended after a week of their engagement. The source revealed that BK's baby mama claimed that he never asked her to leave the celebrations, knowing that Sierra and she didn't share a great relationship. BK tried to smoothen things by telling Sierra that he asked her to leave, but Sierra later learned that he wasn’t being truthful about his efforts. Sierra ended up staying in a hotel for five days after their engagement, the source continued to mention.
‘LHHATL' fans were first introduced to Sierra when she was still married to her ex Shooter. Following the couple's split, BK and she began dating during Season 7 of 'LHHATL'. The couple broke up multiple times due to infidelity on both ends. On one of the previously aired episodes of the reality show, several women came up to Sierra and told her that they had slept with BK. When she confronted him, he simply said that he can't help it if women find him attractive.
The previous season featured BK learning about Sierra's infidelity and embarrassing her in front of everybody by showing up uninvited to her daughter’s birthday party and giving her a gift bag of two condoms and a printout of Sierra's DMs to other men. He made the reality star open the gift bag in front of all the guests and humiliated her publicly.
But looks like Sierra has moved on from her heartbreak, as she is reportedly dating a luxury car dealer named Eric Whitehead. Hopefully, we'll get to see her new man on the upcoming season of 'LHHATL'.
'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta' Season 10 premieres on Monday, July 5, at 8/7c on VH1.
