Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams has split from her fiance and baby daddy, Dennis McKinley, amid rumors that he was having an affair. Williams surprised fans last fall when she announced that she and McKinley were engaged and having a baby.
According to Page Six, McKinley proposed with a 13-carat engagement ring designed by Richie Rich, and just three months ago the couple welcomed their daughter, Pilar Jhena. However, things started to fall apart last month when Williams allegedly found text messages on McKinley’s phone that proved he had been sexting multiple women.

“They are no longer engaged is the story we’re covering for the show,” says an RHOA production insider. “We are covering their co-parenting relationship.”
One report claimed that McKinley was cheating with WAGS Atlanta star Sincerely Ward, but both Ward and McKinley have denied the rumor. Another report claims that McKinley was cheating with strippers, but when Williams confronted him, he denied it.
Fans first noticed something was wrong with the relationship during Memorial Day weekend when Williams unfollowed McKinley on social media. Then, she went on a girls getaway to the Costa Hollywood Beach resort in Hollywood, Florida, earlier this month and was spotted without her engagement ring.
Insiders say that Bravo cameras followed Williams during the entire vacation, so fans will get to see what went down during the upcoming season of RHOA. Some sources claim that the split was all about the alleged cheating, while others say the former couple was constantly fighting about money and parenting after their daughter arrived.
There have also been accusations that The Original Hot Dog Factory owner was using Williams to promote his new streaming business, and he was a “clout chaser” who was causing serious problems between Williams and Bravo.

“Dennis got into it with one of the Bravo executives because he just started a streaming service. Porsha is going to be the brand. She going to help him make more money. He’s getting the publicity that he always wanted to help him continue to carry the brand,” said Tasha K.
But now, it looks like Porsha Williams has squashed Dennis McKinley’s business plans, and is moving on without him.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Atlanta will return to Bravo later this year.
