Tyrone Gilliams, the boyfriend of Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Sheree Whitfield, is taking Bravo to the court. The former college football player claims the show’s creators have been using his name and likeness without his permission.

Though the relationship between the two has been off for some time, Gilliams is still angry over his recurring appearances on the reality show and he’s now taking out his anger on the show’s management.

Gilliams has claimed in the filing he never provided his consent to becoming a recurring member on RHOA in the past. He said he has been a topic of discussion among cast members despite not appearing in person and that Bravo has been profiting off him without his permission.

He has threatened to pursue legal action against Bravo and demanded that the showrunners remove his mentions and footages from RHOA. He’s also asked them to stop any marketing or advertising related to him.


TL Gulluams co-founder was arrested in 2011 and subsequently sentenced to 10 years in prison over wire fraud charges. He’s currently sentenced to home confinement.
