Sheree Whitfield was seen with a meltdown about Tyrone Gilliams on Sunday’s episode The Real Housewives of Atlanta as she said, she felt stupid and used by her then boyfriend.
Reflecting on her former partner’s “sneaky” behavior immediately after she was released from prison, Sheree revealed that not only did her former beau fail to see what she thought he might be after jail, but even stories about her leaked out in an effort to gain fame and fortune.
“I’m sure it was him,” Sheree admitted on the July 10 episode of the… RHOA: After the show.
According to Sheree, she met Tyrone at an Atlanta airport after his release from prison and ventured to Philadelphia with him amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’re wearing masks, he had a hood on… [But] eventually someone takes a picture of us at the airport, and it may have leaked a day or two after we got to Phili,” Sheree recalled.
Although Sheree didn’t think much about the incident at the time, she said that Tyrone later asked, “Hey, do you have any Who Gonna Check Me Boo sweatshirts?”
“I was like, ‘Why?’ He said, ‘Well, I want to wear it when you pick me up so the paparazzi can see,’” she revealed, noting that she assumed Tyrone intended to call the paparazzi herself.
It was then that Sheree Tyrone made it clear that she wasn’t worried about the paparazzi seeing them together and told him she didn’t want any press in their relationship. But he didn’t listen. And after being followed by a cameraman on one of their nights out in Philadelphia, she came across a headline that read, “Sheree and friend Tyrone.”
“Now they can say Sheree first because people recognize me with my mask, but not him. It could have been anyone,” Sheree noted from the moment she began to realize that Tyrone was leaking information.
“That’s how I first found out that he was leaking things. And when I was there, he ended up acting very sneaky. He kept going out of the room, talking on the phone, so when I informed him I was leaving the next day, he kept saying, ‘Honey, we need a picture, just me and you,’” Sheree continued. “He kept saying that, and I never took a picture with him, and I didn’t realize, they needed a picture because he was trying to sell a story, and the first picture I said when I first walked in, the guy was filming us, I had the mask on all the time so the guy said, ‘They need Sheree without a mask.’”
Looking back at her now ex-boyfriend’s behavior, Sheree said that even if Tyrone needed money, he couldn’t have gotten much.
“You’re doing it for the crumbs,” she said.
She then suspected that what her ex really pursued was fame.
“He definitely wants fame. He’s been trying to get fame for a long time, and some people want more fame than money,” she noted.
