Mimi Faust confirmed the rumors about her having a same sex relationship with another woman. On Monday’s premiere episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, the reality star introduced viewers to her girlfriend, Chris, a paralegal that lives in Atlanta. See the clips below.
For months, there’s been much speculation that Mimi has privately been in a new relationship. In an interview with VH1, Chris shares how she met Mimi,
I met Mimi at a club through a mutual friend who had invited me out because Mimi had a booking. I was in her VIP and after the club was over, she pulled me to the side and she was just like, “I find you intriguing.” I was like, “Oh, okay.” [Laughs] They had an after party at Mimi’s house and at the after party, we just kept always separating, just me and her, in conversation. It was just us two, and it kinda went from there.
Chris also addresses Mimi’s previous relationship with Stevie and Nikko:
I definitely didn’t want to get involved with that stuff. I’ll tell you I had a very new perspective from it. At first, I just wanted to hit. [Laughs] It kind of progressed from there. We had this connection, from the few years she spent in Atlanta as a child, we found out we grew up in the same apartment complex. You go in with one thought process and then you get to know somebody and then it kind of comes with the territory. But hell yeah, nobody wanted to deal with that craziness at all.
She also opens up about when she realized that the pair were in a full blown relationship together,
The first time I felt like, okay, we’re together it was Halloween of last year. We went Halloween decoration shopping with Eva, and I’ve never dated anybody with a child, so I did have this moment of, this is for real. Like, a real life relationship. The ironic part? We came home and Nikko is waiting outside of her house.
Yeah. Her homegirl was at the house and was like, Nikko’s outside. We come and we pull up and he kinda forcefully goes, “I wanna talk to you,” and I allowed those two to have closure. I wanna say at that moment I felt like it was real because I respected her so much I was so concerned. I was in the house concerned is he…even though I’m a buck twenty, I’m like, I’ll jump on this guy if he does anything wrong. I think that was the first inkling of like, okay, we’re together.
