Waka Flocka Flame Married!


Rapper Waka Flocka Flame has married his girlfriend Tammy Rivera. Waka, real name Juaquin Malphurs, and Rivera have been engaged since 2013. According to his mother Debra Antney, the happy couple married after tying the knot in a secret wedding ceremony earlier in May.

She told RumorFix.com, “I was selfish. I wanted to be a part of it, (but) they got a marriage license about two weeks ago without me knowing it.”

“(He) kept his word. He said that he was going to marry her and he did it on his terms. It was very cute to me. I’m happy. He’s very responsible.”

Rivera also confirmed the news on her Twitter.com page, by simply writing, “Mrs.Malphurs”.

According to Antney, the two, who both star on U.S. reality show Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, will celebrate the occasion at a larger ceremony for their friends and family later on.

It was Deb’s consistent encouragement that convinced her new daughter-in-law to agree to join the LHHATL cast in the first place.

“I was approached the first season,” Tammy recently revealed.

“I wasn’t interested. It just wasn’t the right time in my life.”

After a few years of asking her to join, she finally agreed to join the show by her fiance’s mother, Deb Antney, who has been an influential figure in many of the LHHATL cast’s lives including.

“It’s just a point right now in my life where for the first time with my fiance I feel stable. I feel grounded. I feel blessed, and he’s more comfortable in our relationship,” Tammy said.

“It’s just a time right now where we feel like it’s okay to let people in. We’re not perfect, but I’m ready.”
