After months of rumors, Falynn Guobadia and her ghey BFF/personal assistant Jaylan Banks are Instagram official.

Falynn joins the ranks of women who believe ghey men will treat them better than emotionally unavailable heterosexual men.

Earlier this year, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams stole Falynn's fiancè Simon Guobadia. Then, last month, Simon accused his estranged wife, Falynn, of cheating on him with Jaylan.

Falynn kind of denied the allegation -- even though she dropped social media clues that they were having a romantic interlude.

Over the weekend, Jaylan came clean and admitted what we already knew: that he and Falynn are lovers.

"A man is truly a man when he earns the respect of a good woman and keeps her trust," he wrote.

He went on to say he doesn't need the approval of Simon or anyone else. Jaylan dropped all sorts of zesty hints in his IG posts.

"We were best friends at first," he confirmed. "That being said, I picked up where a man left off, I'm happy and she's happy. That's it."

Falynn seems to be basking in her modern relationship. We don't know what Jaylan does for a living, but he seems to be well off and capable of paying Falynn's bills. Good luck to them.

When the news broke that Don Cheadle married his girlfriend after 28 years together, everyone assumed he did it for love.

Actually, he did it for money.

The well-known character actor confirmed his nuptials on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" last month. He revealed to guest host Wanda Sykes that he and his longtime girlfriend, Bridgid Coulter, got married during the pandemic after 28 years together.

Fans flooded their social media timelines with compliments and praise. Many single women viewed the couple as proof that true Love will stand the test of time.

However, on Monday, the 56-year-old actor told Entertainment Tonight the real reason why he decided to finally pop the question.

"Our accountant proposed to both of us and he showed us the numbers, and we said, yeah, we should probably do it," Cheadle said at the premiere of his new film "Space Jam: A New Legacy."

"It came up a lot of time," he said about the topic of marriage. "But every time, we were like, 'But we're already together?' [The accountant said], 'Yeah, but this is a better reason to be together.'"

Cheadle and the 52-year-old actress and designer have two daughters named Ayana Tai, 2nd from right, and Imani, right.

Cheadle said the dopamine phase faded from their relationship a long time ago.

"Really, it's because our accountant proposed to us, I wish there were some big sweet romantic story, but the romance happened, you know, the first year."
