Not as famed as the Kardashian family, but famed nevertheless— the reality show Braxton Family Values star Trina Braxton created quite a buzz when she divorced her husband of 8 years a year back. 41-year-old Trina Braxton married Mexico-born Gabe Solis in 2003. Their divorce was based on the alleged infidelity of Solis.
TRINA BRAXTON’S MET HER NOW EX-HUSBAND AT A BAR
Back in 2001, Trina Braxton and Gabe Solis first met in Atlanta at a bar called American Pie. Solis admitted to trying to “get lucky” that night (which he didn’t). The duo had chatted up and agreed on not having a serious relationship. But things hardly go as planned, do they?
Solis said, “After a year and a half, I took Trina to see “Dreamgirls” at the Fox Theater, and on the rooftop of the Georgian Terrace Hotel after, I proposed. Trina said ‘yes’ but she didn’t like the ring. So, we later exchanged it.” Ouch. Must be embarrassing when your fiancée accepts the proposal but ditches the ring right? They got married a few months later.
GABE SOLIS CHEATED ON TRINA BRAXTON
Several years of the marriage of Trina Braxton and Gabe Solis went peacefully. But in 2013, it was suddenly revealed that Trina had threatened to divorce Gabe after hearing about one of his alleged affairs with a younger girl.
Trina didn’t file for divorce in 2013 and “tried to mend the marriage and keep the family together”. But things kept on going downhill and the couple finally divorced in 2015 April.
BUT THEY ARE STILL IN TOUCH
Trina Braxton and her ex-husband Gabe Solis share a few jokes with each other as they reunite at Braxton’s Bar Chix restaurant in a deleted clip from the July 14 episode of Braxton Family Values! As soon as he sits down for his chat with Braxton, Solis flirtatiously offers his thoughts on how he feels Braxton could improve the restaurant’s decor. However, Braxton isn’t a bit concerned with her ex’s jokes, as she tosses her own shade right back at him! And despite her sisters’ warnings about her talking with her ex, Braxton appears to be quite comfortable with her former husband as they talk about what went wrong in their marriage. And all of this have hinted at a possible reconciliation of the couple. However, until they publicly announce something or the evidence isn't quite concrete, all we can do is speculate .
