Nique Brown is dating basketball player Dwayne Bacon. Dwayne has played for multiple teams including the Charlotte Hornets and the Orlando Magic. He also played overseas in Europe with AS Monaco in France and Panathinaikos in Greece.

Dwayne is also Mackenzie Hyatt's ex-fiancé and baby daddy. The pair share two children together, a son and a daughter. Mackenzie spilled the tea that they broke up because Dwayne cheated on her multiple times, according to screenshots taken by Black Sports Online.

Mackenzie took to her Instagram story to do a Q&A. When asked about her relationship with Dwayne, she wrote, "Nothing much to really say. We were engaged and living together. He cheated on me (more than once). I finally left and now he's dating one of the girls he was talking to behind my back."

And that girl is reportedly Nique, as the pair were linked before Mackenzie and Dwayne broke up. However, Mackenzie and Nique seem to be on good terms at least.

Not only do they seem to be cordial on Basketball Wives Orlando, but Mackenzie was on Nique and Dwayne's podcast and they seem to all have a great rapport.

They also cleared the air, saying that Dwayne and Mackenzie were already done when Nique and him started hanging out. Nique said on the podcast that Dwayne slid into her DMs, after he had broken up with Mackenzie, and the pair were facetiming every day and then he ghosted her for six months.

Well, it turns out that was because Mackenzie came back, but then they broke up again and Dwayne and Nique started hanging out. They were at a party together, and now have been together for going on two years.

Nique has a very big social media following with almost 4 million followers on Instagram alone. She is also an active YouTuber and posts lots of content with her and Dwayne, like this adorable video of them playing "Sing the Song or Drink."

We are so glad to see Dwayne, Nique, and Mackenzie have such a healthy dynamic not only for themselves but more so for the sake of their kids.
