“Whatever it looks like I’m going to walk with God, be the best father and man I can be, hold my head up high, and try to look my best doing it!!” Tyler wrote on Facebook.
But it wasn’t his inspirational message that caught fans’ attention. Many have taken to the comment section to ask questions about his relationship status, which he put down as “single.” Even though Tyler and Gelila started dating over a decade ago, they never got married.
Reportedly, Tyler and Gelila met for the first time at a Prince concert in 2007, and they started dating sometime around 2009. However, they refrained from talking about their relationship in a public capacity for the most part. Take, for instance, Tyler’s recent appearance on the expediTIously with Tip TI Harris podcast, during which he didn’t mention Gelila by name.
“I have someone who’s wonderful, and she’s getting her share of all of [my wealth],” Tyler said on the podcast.
