Bre Tiesi got emancipated at the age of 15.

Speaking of Bre's mom, it appears the real estate agent and model's relationship with her was quite rocky (although it's doing better). During Season 6, Episode 10 of Selling Sunset, Bre divulged the details on her emancipation.

Bre admitted, "When I was going into high school, my best friend committed suicide. It just destroyed me. My mom saw and she was like, ‘Oh, no, you gotta go live with your dad.’ She didn’t know what to do with me. So I was like, ‘OK, I’m gonna file for emancipation,’ and I did. I divorced my parents, and my dad was like, ‘That’s fine. If you think you can do it, I’ll let you.’”

Despite "divorcing" her parents, Bre says she is slowly making amends with her mom. “I think it is getting better because of my son. I wouldn’t say we were like, super close. I think that she did the best that she could do, and I think she’s the reason I was never taught to depend on guys for anything, which is why my relationships are different, but I’m definitely working on it, and I want to have the healthiest, best example for my son.”

Are Bre Tiesi and Nick Cannon in a relationship?

It’s unclear whether or not Bre and Nick are an actual couple, but they did host a gender reveal party on Jan. 29, 2022. They both showed up in all-white outfits to celebrate the pregnancy. The party was held in Malibu, and they revealed they would be having a baby boy!

Although you might interpret this as them establishing themselves as a couple, Bre did describe her relationship with the Wild N’ Out host as “not necessarily anything” during a June 2022 interview on the Know for Sure podcast.

The NFL star proposed to her in 2017, and they got married in 2018. They split up in 2019, after she hinted he may have cheated, per TMZ.

Bre Tiesi has been open about her relationship dynamics with Nick Cannon.

Bre opened up to E! News Daily Pop in March 2022 to discuss the dynamics of her relationship with Nick. She said, “Him and I have had our on-and-off for years. And I just respect and love who he is so much as a person, that when I thought about, 'Do I want my son to be this person? Look at your characteristics, look at your personality, look at how you treat people.' That's what is so much more important to me than anything. And he treats me amazing, so that's all I look at.”

She explained that her relationship with Nick is filled with a lot of support and positivity, despite the idea of conventional relationships other people in the world might have.

Bre and Nick have been in each other‘s lives for almost a decade! Even though they've both had relationships with other people along the way, they’ve always returned to each other. And now, they have a child together, Legendary Love Cannon.
