Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta fans have watched Mimi Faust’s mishaps in love. Who can forget her lengthy and toxic relationship with Stevie J, followed by another relationship and sex tape scandal with another ex. But once she began dating WNBA star Ty Young, viewers were hopeful she found her happily ever after. As it turns out, things between the two may be over for good this time after Young stepped out with another woman.
The former couple confirm split amid alleged cheating scandal
Young and Faust confirmed their engagement just before the New Year. But this week, Young was seen in public with another woman and the video went viral. Fans accused Young of cheating on Faust. In response, Young hopped on Instagram and set the record straight.
“Clearly it was someone recording being sneaky to create mess, nobody looking at the camera or seen someone recording,” she said, as reported by Urban Belle Mag. And if it was something, I’m single so it still wouldn’t be cheating,” she commented on a post.

Faust responded with a cryptic meme that read: “Breathe and remember who the f*ck you are.” She captioned the meme, “Enough said.”
In a separate post, Faust spoke about the split, writing: “It is imperative that when you say you are moving forward with your plans, life or goals…that those words are followed by action and led by passion. My friends, we all have grown in the last 2-3 years. New friends and old; they remain people that we learn from and share our life stories with.” She continued, “In saying this, I want to make sure that I wish Ty the best. Remember, we all grow and that’s ok. It’s also ok to grow apart. Just respect each other in the process.”
The breakup came right after the couple recently celebrated Valentine’s Day together. Days before the photos surfaced, Young posted Faust as her “Woman Crush Wednesday.”

This isn’t their first engagement
Faust and Young were engaged before. But within months, they called off the engagement. Faust said they grew apart and she never wanted to get married but Young didn’t heed her suggestions and proposed anyway.
She later said that she simply wasn’t ready to be a wife and had trust issues from her previous relationships. But after therapy and time apart, they reconciled.
