Why Is Sheree Whitfield’s Boyfriend In Jail?

RHOA star Sheree Whitfield recently admitted that she fell in love with a man who is currently in prison. This has some fans of the show shocked and wondering what Whitfield’s man did to end up behind bars.

Sheree and Tyrone Gilliams began dating before he was sentenced to ten years in jail. According to court docs Gilliams was caught stealing no less than $5 million from a couple of victims. He spent the money on his own extravagant lifestyle.

Besides serving ten years, he was also ordered to pay back the money he stole. He apparently spent ‘more than $1 million organizing a festival called ‘Joy to the World’ that culminated in a December 18, 2010, black-tie gala at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, as well as an event in the Bahamas called the ‘Gatta be Jokin’ Comedy Jam,’’ the court documents and Celebrity Insider reveal.

Whitfield claims she was not aware of his conviction. “We stopped talking before he went to prison because he did not want to get me involved in any of that.” But she claims her man is innocent and shares they rekindled their romance.

“He is a good guy and, you know, he supports me. I can talk to him about anything. He is my best friend. He just got caught up in the wrong craziness, and hopefully he will be back soon,” she said.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
