This article was last updated by on

The former NBA player Brandon Jennings’ girlfriend and controversy with his baby mama were media feeders in the past.

In recent years, Jennings remained away from controversies until the news of him threatening Miko Grimes hit up in 2023 as she joked on Karl Malone.

With this, rising concerns came for possible reasons for his actions; one of those guesses was if Brandon was dating Karl Malone’s daughter.

A native of Compton, California, Jennings is an American former basket player who played nine seasons in the NBA & overseas.

He was the 1st round (10th overall pick) of the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2009 NBA draft.

Brandon was the same year draft pick as Blake Griffin, James Harden, Tyreke Evans & Stephen Curry.

Having played for NBA teams: the Bucks, Pistons, Knicks, and Wizards, the former point guard spent a season in G-league & a Russian basketball team before retirement in 2018.

Widely known for his volatile relationship with his girlfriends, Jennings barred any new partner introduction since the mid-2010s.

But in November 2023, an incident refueled the talks of Brando having a new girlfriend.

It came after the basketball player Miko Grimes said the retired NBA player threatened her after she called Karl Malone a “pedo” during one of her Gil’s Arena podcast segments.

In an interview with Entirely NBA, Grimes stated Brandon texted in a group chat threatening her and mentioned, “his girlfriend was going to beat her up.”

However, she didn’t identify Jennings’ girlfriend- neither did the former basketball star ever comment on having a new girlfriend lately.

The video went viral on social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok, where fans poured their opinions.

Some stated that he could be dating one of Malone’s daughters, while some wrote that his girlfriend could be Karl’s goddaughter.

Even more, a handful of fans wrote that his new partner is the daughter of former NBA star Bryon Russell, with whom Malone played in the Lakers.

Nevertheless, Brandon’s significant half is yet to be identified.

Jennings’ Girlfriends And Baby Mamas: How Many Kids?

The former Bucks point guard never married but became the father of three kids with three different baby mamas. Despite having five publicly disclosed girlfriends, all of his relationships were volatile.

On his Instagram, Jennings shares pictures of his three sons, Legend, Kingston, and Deuce.

His first child, Legend Truth Jennings, born on September 24, 2010, is from his ex-girlfriend Sakoya Wynter.

His other son, Kingston, is from his relationship with his then-high school sweetheart, Brittany Bryant.

They dated for six years, from August 2005 to September 2011, until she found out that her boyfriend cheated on her & welcomed a son (none other than Legend). Back in the day, she even took to Facebook to publicly slam her then-boyfriend.

Then, from 2011 to 2014, Jennings was in a relationship with Teyana Taylor; they were engaged.

In 2014, the retired NBA player began dating Lashontae “Tae” Heckard.

Brandon & Tae got engaged shortly after and planned to marry, awaiting the latter’s finalization with her domestic partner, Monique Blanton.

However, they later broke up before the birth of their son, Deuce Jennings, on November 15, 2015. 

As reported, the former NBA star met Tae through his former fiancee, Teyana. In an interview with The Breakfast Club, Taylor mentioned that Heckared ‘stole her man’ and showed her disappointment.

On the counter, Tae stated that she & Teyana were not friends, while Brandon cleared that they were already over when he began dating Heckard.

Amid those dramas, there were reports of Jennings’ relationship with Angela Simmons (2013) and Malika (2014- 2016).
