Kenya Moore spent a lot of time during the last season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta bragging about her boyfriend without ever showing his face or even using his name. Now his identity has not only been revealed, but according to Media Take Out, the two are even engaged.

Kenya is rumored to be engaged to Marvin (his last name has yet to be revealed), a much younger male model from Germany. In fact, there’s no confirmation that this is the same boyfriend that Kenya was talking about when referring to her “African Prince.”
According to Media Take Out, Marvin is having trouble getting a visa to come to the United States to be with Kenya. And a marriage would solve that problem. Not only that, but if they were to be married soon, there’s a possibility that Kenya would get her own wedding spin-off (like her fellow castmates Kim Zolciak, NeNe Leakes and now Kandi Buruss).
Kenya allegedly “cast” Marvin to be her new fiance for the upcoming season because she’s looking for storylines. The two of them are currently vacationing together in Europe.
Then again, other sources indicate that Kenya is involved with a completely different man. According to RadarOnline, she’s been seeing Tonye Cole, a Nigerian man with a wife and three kids. This story would be consistent with the one that NeNe told at the reunion when she encountered Kenya’s “African Prince” and he was very dark skinned with a thick accent.

This wouldn’t be the first time there was controversy around one of Kenya’s relationships. In season 5, she reportedly hired Walter Jackson to appear on the show as her boyfriend. He admitted to the ploy only after she had taken it too far, trying to pressure him into marriage on TV when they both knew it was fake. Kenya denied all of Walter’s accusations.
While Kenya’s personal life all but remains a mystery, she does seem to really be in love.
“Love is a choice, to trust is a choice. You choose your fate. You can’t let other people and the past dictate how you treat others. Time to heal,” she wrote on her Instagram.
