What happened between DeJuan and Tynea?

DeJuan first met Tynea, who lives in Atlanta, on Tinder, 2 years ago.

He initially tells Nev and Kamie that he can see them being together for the rest of their lives.

They spoke on the phone regularly, but things started to get weird when she ignored his call, blocked him from her Insta, then revealed she is a mum.

DeJuan travelled 4 hours to Georgia to meet her, but she never showed up.

It later turned out that Tynea is pregnant with another man, and DeJuan decided to end their relationship. Oh, and Tynea is a twin.
