Sorry fellas, Meagan Good is off the market (you've gotta be quicker than that).

Battle rapper Dizaster swept Meagan off her feet just a few months after she split from her husband, DeVon Franklin.

Meagan filed for divorce earlier this year, citing irreconcilable differences.

According to MTO News, she is already dating another man.

Sources close to both Meagan, 40, and Dizaster, 37, tell MTO News that the two are smitten with each other after working out together in a sweltering gym in L.A.

Dizaster posted two photos that show them relaxing after a strenuous workout together in Los Angeles.

He captioned the images: "Twitter People... How mad are u on a scale of 1 to infinity?"

Not much is known about Dizaster. He reportedly has a nasty temper.

In 2014, he allegedly punched Math Hoffa at the end of their battle rap competition.

Meagan's male fans were understandably upset. Some of them are in denial and refused to accept that Meagan is already taken off the market.

Marital advice dished out by Steve Harvey years ago has resurfaced on TikTok. Steve's old advice takes on new meaning amid the news that religious power couple DeVon Franklin and Meagan Good are divorcing.

In a video from his old Facebook Watch series "Steve," Harvey advised women to start dating ugly men if they wanted to have a successful relationship.

"I want to tell you something, ladies," Harvey said, "I recommend to all of you get yourself a ugly man. It will be the best decision you've ever made."

He listed the attributes of unattractive men that make them more desirable over the DeVon Franklins of the world.

"They are reliable. They come when they say they are going to come. They do everything they say they are gon' do. They spend they money on you. They help you with your kids. They take them to the doctor, to the dentist. Their little ugly ass be out there pushing them in the swing."

Harvey concluded:

"They ain't ever going to cheat on you because they know don't nobody else want them. Get yourself an ugly man."

On the other hand, attractive men are unreliable, they have too many options, multiple children outside their marriage, they never show up on time, and the list goes on and on.

Meagan Good probably wishes she took Harvey's advice. She would still be married and probably have a boatload of beautiful children.

Meagan Good took steps to heal herself emotionally and physically after breaking up with her husband of 9 years, Pastor DeVon Franklin.

Like all relationships based on sexual attraction, problems arose once the chemistry faded.

Rumor has it that Good and Franklin cheated throughout their marriage. But they always prayed on it and reconciled.

In his divorce filing, Pastor Franklin, 43, said the couple separated in April and their marital bonds were irretrievably broken.

In an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle, Good said she stopped drinking alcohol and sought mental therapy when her world collapsed. The Jumping the Broom star said she found her strength in the bottom of a liquor bottle. But she knew getting drunk every day wasn't the answer.

The 40-year-old actress told Yahoo Lifestyle her mental health was her priority.

"It's everything. As I've gotten older, I can pinpoint the things I haven't dealt with. I was like, you need to look under the hood, you need a good therapist, you need to take time to make sure that your well-being and your spirit is your priority."

FayesVision/WENN.com

"This year I took a moment — [turning] 40 was about to happen. Around April, I stopped drinking and really leaned into therapy. I got very intentional about [wellness] because I wanted to go into 40 with peace of mind, with unexplainable joy, with more sense of self and a wholeness. I have a tendency to jump over things or go around them, instead of walking through them, and this year it was about walking through things and having those days when you’re grieving something from 15 or 20 years ago. Really walking through it."
 

Do you have any small self-care rituals to help you reset?

"I try to hit the reset button every morning internationally: I breathe, I pray. I make it a point not to touch my phone. I'll put on gospel or uplifting music, something to give me strength. As the day goes on and if I'm in a moment where I'm stressed out, I'll take a beat and steal away somewhere. I'll go into myself and just breathe and pray; I'll find that peace and reset my brain. Everything else can wait for five minutes."

What's your mantra for life?

"My authenticity is my superpower. There's something beautiful about knowing there's no one in the world like you. When you're not authentic, you're in trouble because you're not in alignment with who you are. When you're truly authentic, we bring the right people into our lives."

The couple married in 2012 but their union did not produce children.

Rumors swirled online that Meagan and DeVon were no longer together.

Meagan attended the premiere of her new Amazon Prime Video series called "Harlem," on Friday, December 3. DeVon wasn't at the premiere event in New York City. In an Instagram story about the premiere, he said he was "so proud of my love!"

"Y'all not ready for this!!!" he wrote in a caption alongside the video.

"I'm so proud of my love @Meagangood! She's one of the most talented actors on the planet AND she's funnier than you may know but I'm so glad you finally get a chance to see her do it all as Camille Parks in the new Amazon show #Harlem @Harlemonprime!!"

He added, "It streams on DEC 3rd on @amazonprimevideo [fire emojis] P.S. this will be your new favorite show...sex in the city has nothing on #harlem."

Meagan responded, "My Loooove [heart] .. thank you [praying hands] Heart'ah'smilin... Love you!"

The couple struggled to have children throughout their marriage. Last year, Meagan told Essence magazine:

"I'm trying to really get in shape. And I'm trying to get ready for babies. I'm trying to be in the best shape of my life so that I can start from a good point and be in a good place when I get in the gym after that."

Black Twitter was outraged after a character on Prime Video's "Harlem" bust it wide open in a scene with star Meagan Good.

Viewers who tuned in to watch "Harlem" didn't expect to see a male character exposing his back door during what was supposed to be an intimate heterosexual scene.

The Black women empowerment series has been heavily criticized for being "too woke" and liberal for many viewers.

Twitter activist Tariq Nasheed wrote:

"This #HarlemOnPrime is really an LGBT show disguised as a "girl power" vehicle. All the sex scenes are generally same sex couples. And the one "heterosexual" sex scene that was about to happen was with Meagan Good, but the dude got in bed and spread his boochie cat open."

Black Twitter expressed similar sentiments.

Meagan Good is still going with the excuse that she mistakenly bleached her skin 5 shades lighter.

Back in May, a fan remarked on Meagan's skin bleaching, writing: "Meagan looked better dark skin... She not so pretty anymore she looks average... But her dark skin was above average... Why did she Bleach."

The 38-year-old actress responded: "I didn't Queen. A (unbeknownst to me) unlicensed aesthetician gave me a product to correct a sun mark on my forehead that messed up [my] skin."

In a recent interview with faith-based, The Same Room, Meagan said, "I went to an unlicensed esthetician who convinced me that I needed to get rid of some sun damage. And a few months later, I am like five shades lighter than I actually am and it was a really traumatic experience because I really trusted the person."

Meagan claimed not to know her skin was getting lighter and lighter over time. And her husband didn't notice either.

"I kept asking her through the process, like 'Is this what's supposed to happen?' She's like, 'Oh it'll lift and it'll come back.' I got to the place of realizing I don't know if it's going to come back, I think I've been bamboozled."

When her followers started clowning her and bloggers posted before and after photos, Meagan began to feel the sting of shame.

"It was super embarrassing and super painful especially in the climate we're in as black women," she said.

"I'm over-confident when I look in the mirror, I like what I see. And to feel like someone stole that from me and to feel like I was misled and now there's commentary on it and people thinking I don't love myself, that's something I can get through but when I'm thinking about these young girls, these young brown-skinned girls who are thinking that I've changed myself and what kind of ideas are putting into their head, that just broke my heart."

Don't you hate it when your esthetician bleaches your skin 5 shades lighter and you don't notice the problem for years? Meagan Good says that's what happened to her.

After years of denying rumors that she is bleaching, Meagan finally fessed up in response to a fan on social media.

The fan wrote: "Meagan looked better dark skin... She not so pretty anymore she looks average... But her dark skin was above average... Why did she Bleach."

The 38-year-old actress responded: "I didn't Queen. A (unbeknownst to me) unlicensed aesthetician gave me a product to correct a sun mark on my forehead that messed up [my] skin."

Meagan apparently continued to use the product for years not realizing she was getting lighter and lighter until she started burning. She said that's when she stopped using the product.

"By the grace of God only; I'm about 80% through recovery and regaining my color daily. To be honest it was beyond painful and traumatic experience because I would never wish that on anybody. I'd really appreciate if you wouldn't continue to spread assumptions and rumors. Gobless you [sic]."
