During her season on Basketball Wives: LA, Imani Showalter was very vocal about not having dated since being engaged to NBA star Stephen Jackson. According to HipHollywood, Imani hasn’t been worried about being alone because she’s been dating gospel superstar Marvin Sapp since last fall. The two met when Sapp was in Los Angeles to judge Verizon’s How Sweet The Sound choir competition. Imani and Marvin were introduced before the show began.
A source close to the couple said, “The two exchanged information and immediately started corresponding after the show. A week or so later Marvin flew her to Grand Rapids to visit him and so she could experience his church.” Since visiting his church, they have been attached at the hip. Imani was by Sapp’s side when he hosted the Stellar Awards in Nashville over Martin Luther king weekend.
Marvin Sapp is also a pastor of a church and his congregation is said to be accepting of his reality star girlfriend, as long as she keeps the tweeting of bikini pics to a minimum.
