Who is DJ Duffey from ‘Basketball Wives’? Everything we know.

Born LaTosha Duffey, BBW star DJ Duffey hails from Dallas, Texas. Long before she started her career as a disc jockey, she studied at the University of Texas at Arlington, where she played Division 1 women’s basketball.

Despite being romantically linked to Drake for a short time in college, she ultimately found love with an NFL player. At age 21, she married former New York Giants cornerback Brian Jackson. After graduation, she relocated up north to be closer to her then-husband. Together, they share a son named Heir.

Although it’s unclear when the pair divorced, reports suggest that Duffey and Brian’s marriage was short-lived as she returned to Texas after only months of living together. She previously told Revolt TV of her ex, “I went through a divorce where my son’s father left me.”

"He was in the NFL. He took all the money, he took my car away. I literally had nothing. I had to start over," she added. "When I would look at my son, I’d be like, never again will someone be able to take anything from us, I’m gonna have it myself."

But while her love life was on the decline, Duffey’s career was on the rise.
