Imani Showalter from “Basketball Wives L.A.” is Dating Gospel Singer Marvin Sapp?
“Basketball Wives: LA” star Imani Showalter may have finally found a man….and a good one at that!
The reality star is rumored to be dating Gospel singer Marvin Sapp.
According to Hip Hollywood, the two met back in October at Verizon’s “How Sweet the Sound” choir competition in L.A.
“The two exchanged information and immediately started corresponding after the show. A week or so later Marvin flew her to Grand Rapids to visit him and so she could experience his church,” a source said
And since then, things have apparently been going well between Imani and Marvin, who is a father of three and a widower. (His ex-wife Malinda died of colon cancer in 2010.)
Just last December, Imani was spotted with Marvin at a concert at New Life Covenant Church, and about a month later, over Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend, she accompanied him to the Stellar Gospel Awards in Nashville, TN.
“They’ve been spending quite a bit of time together. They’re definitely falling in love and I wouldn’t be surprised if they ended up getting married,” the source added.
Members of Sapp’s church however aren’t so happy with their relationship after viewing bikini pics Imani tweeted showing off her recent weight loss.
“If she seriously wants to be with him and plans to become the First Lady of his church, the last thing she needs to be doing is tweeting risqué photos of herself. That’s just a big no-no!” one member said.
These two dating seems a little odd to us…but hey, who are we to judge?
