*UPDATE*–Basketball Wives L.A Imani has a New Man and is not Gospel Singer Marvin Sapp VH1 Access
According to YBF by way of Hip Hollywood, Marvin Sapp has decided to hit the dating scene with Basketball Wives LA Star Imani Showalter, who is the ex-fiance of NBA star Stephen Jackson. Showalter met Sapp when he was in Los Angeles judging for Verizon’s How Sweet The Sound choir competition late last year.
“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,” said a source.
The couple has been nearly inseparable since Showalter’s first visit, with Sapp flying Showalter out on various concert dates and preaching engagements. She traveled with the 44-year-old preacher to Chicago for a concert at New Life Covenant Church in late December. She was also by his side when he co-hosted the Stellar Gospel Awards in Nashville over Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend.
“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.
Hmmm…..very interesting. Especially in light of Noel Jones supposedly dating reality star Lisa Raye back in November.
