In terms of her personal life, Lashontae started dating pop artist Nelly and married Monique Blanton. After that, she started dating basketball player Brandon Jennings, who was still rumored to be dating actress Teyana Taylor at the time. For the first several months, the couple had a pleasant and joyful relationship. The couple also intended to take their love to the next level by getting married. However, she had previously divorced her then-partner, Monique Blanton. Brandon and Tae got engaged after her divorce, and Tae got pregnant with Brandon’s kid.

Upon hearing the news of Heckard’s pregnancy, her boyfriend, Brandon, abandoned her after a few days. Many others got taken aback by the information. He defended himself by saying he left Tae because he wanted to play with him. The actress gave birth to a newborn boy in November 2015, and the pair mended their disagreements and began a new life together after a year apart. Unfortunately, this, too, was short-lived, as they broke up for real this time.
Later, she dated NFL star Stefon Diggs, but the relationship ended in 2019. Brandon Byron Jennings Jr. is Tae’s son with NBA star Brandon Jennings. In November of 2015, he was born.
