In an interview with VH1, the model and "Basketball Wives LA" star revealed she also lost her husband to suicide.
When I first met Angel [Brinks], we had a sort of similar background as far as our baby fathers playing in the NBA but I remember her telling me that she was once married and her guy committed suicide and it was so ironic that I had that same story as well. [My guy], we were dating for maybe two years, we got married, then three months later he committed suicide. It was so so hard for me to accept it and adjust to life after that because I thought I had everything I needed. I had just finished nursing school, I just got married, I was happy and in love. My life was just amazing but then my
life just crashed. I was really at my wit's end and I didn't know how to overcome [the grief] and adjust to life again. Prayers and trying to get a strong relationship with God really held me together.
I met him while I was in college and we knew each other for maybe seven or eight years [but I was like], I'm just focusing on school. Then my last semester of nursing school we got together and started dating and we ended up getting married right after I finished school. So, we knew each other [but] he just had some issues that I guess only he could figure out. I've been through quite a few things in my life, and the only thing that I knew to help me overcome a lot of battles in life was church.
