The last time fans saw Mimi, she and her girlfriend Ty Young were trying to make their long-distance relationship work since Mimi was in Atlanta, and Ty at the time was playing for the WNBA team Las Vegas Aces.

It appeared that the couple was doing pretty good, minus a couple of hiccups. A few months after Season 9 had ended, Ty decided to take the next step in her and Mimi's relationship and proposed.

In a now-deleted Instagram post, the couple announced their engagement in August 2020.

Mimi Faust and Ty Young are no longer together.

After four years of dating and being engaged for barely a year, Mimi and Ty decided to split. In March is when the pair called it quits. It appeared that maybe Mimi would get her happily ever after with Ty, but that didn't happen.

In a recent interview on Tami Roman's podcast Get Into It With Tami Roman, the reality television personality discussed why she and Ty were no longer together.

She shared, "I think the turning point for me was engagement. That's not what I wanted." She explained to the former Basketball Wives star that she tried to talk to her ex-fiancée, but Ty didn't want to come to some sort of compromise.

Mimi goes on to say, "And so that is what she wanted, and she pressed forward with what she wanted, regardless of anybody else saying how they felt about it." I didn't want to be married, no."

As reported by Essence during a live chat with fans, Mimi was also asked about her and Ty's relationship and added, "In relationships, you know, people grow apart. They grow different. They want different things. That's what happened. We're still friends. We still communicate."

She also let her fans know that the reason they are no longer together was not because of cheating. The L&HH cast member disclosed, "There was no cheating going on in this relationship at all. It was all respect and all. People grow in different directions."

Audiences may not see Mimi on the new season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, but we wish her nothing but the best.

Catch new episodes of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta on Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on VH1.
