For weeks rumors have been circulating that rapper-turned-reality-star The Game has been creeping around with Khloe Kardashian. In case you missed it, the rumors began to surface around the time word got out Khloe was experiencing difficulties in her marriage with Lamar Odom. If you ask The Game’s fiancée, Tiffney Cambridge, what she thinks about the rumors, she says she’s not too worried about them because she believes the friendship is strictly platonic.
“”It doesn’t bother me [the rumors]. Jayceon and Khloe have been friends for a long time.,” she told Mara The Hip Hop Socialite.
She went on to say that Khloe used to date one of The Game’s friends.
“She actually, back in the day, years ago, used to date one of his close friends, so that’s where their relationship stems from. They’ve always been really good friends.”
“You know how the media is, and the paparazzi is, and how people speculate on things, and that just goes along with the territory. So to tell you the truth, no, it doesn’t bother me or affect me either way.”
Tiffney also commented on Khloe’s current relationship woes with hubby, Lamar Odom.
“I think that she’s going through a lot right now in her situation with her husband, and at the same time, Jayceon is there to support her and encourage her as a friend. So no, it doesn’t bother me.”
Well, I guess if she doesn’t have a problem, neither should anyone else. As for whether or not she and her fiancé will be returning to VH1 for season three of Marrying The Game, Tiffney says she’s not sure as of yet.
“You’ll have to talk to the people over at VH1 about that. The network is really in control of when they put us back on the air, but I’m sure that with the fans being interested in what’s still happening with Jayceon and I and the kids, the show will be back next year.”
Many of us would agree that reality TV is rarely a good thing for celebrity couples who actually desire to stay together. But despite calling off her engagement, giving her rapper fiancé back his engagement ring and willingly airing out their dirty laundry for the world to see, Marry the Game star Tiffney Cambridge says that being on television has actually helped her relationship with The Game (aka Jayceon Taylor).
“I would say it helped it. I definitely don’t think that it did anything negative, but I think that being able to see yourself outside of yourself, and really watch how you handle situations and how you react, is very helpful,” Tiffney told Necole Bitchie.
“A lot of the times, these shows will tear your family apart or tear your relationship apart. I don’t really think that’s been the case for us. I have really been be able to look at our show and get a good retrospective thought process going on. Like, ‘Wow! That’s you? You really went through that, you handled yourself well girl!’” she continued.
The elementary school teacher also opened up about what pushed her to call off the engagement and how she felt about giving Jayceon his ring back.
“It was very difficult, because I want to be married. I didn’t give him the ring back because I don’t want to be with him or I don’t want to marry him. I just want our focuses to be the same. I don’t want it to be about anything materialistic. I don’t want it to be about a wedding ring, I want it to be about the commitment the ring signifies. What it stands for,” Tiffney confessed.
“How you gonna buy someone a 10k ring with a 2k commitment? You walking around with this big ol’ 10k ring on that you would think the person that gave it to you would make a commitment to be as big as the ring they gave you. Thats what we’ve been working on. Tryna get the size of the ring and commitment to match up. [Laughs].”
She went on to discuss why she believes that on-again, off-again boo isn’t exactly prepared to make a “10k commitment” just yet.
“Because Jayceon is still young, and he is a rapper! They like to go out all of the time. They like to club all the time. They got women around them all the time. They can be disrespectful at times. There are just certain things that a husband should and shouldn’t do. If everybody follows him on Twitter and IG, I mean you can look at it and say to yourself, ‘Okay, if this is my husband would I want my husband to be doing this right here?’ When you’re somebody’s husband you’re supposed to govern yourself accordingly, there are certain things that you just can’t do. We are just trying get him to that point.”
It’s an age old question. Should couples fight to stay together for the sake of their children even though they both believe that their time together is spent? Marrying the Game star Tiffney Cambridge took a stab at the question during a recent interview with Sister 2 Sister.
“It really depends on the situation and the relationship. All children deserve to be in a home that has a mother and a father,” said the school teacher-turned-reality-star.
“If you can make that situation work, then by all means, you should try,” she added.
Tiffney went on to say that she hopes she and her ex-fiancée, The Game, are able to make things work for the sake of their family.
“It’s probably everyone’s first choice to be together with the father of your children—make your family work. I hope that for myself and for other families, as well.”
She also discussed fellow reality TV couples Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan and NeNe and Gregg Leakes and their ability to reconcile.
“I try not to look at other people’s relationship as like a barometer. I don’t compare or gauge my relationship with someone else’s. With NeNe and [the Barneses], they have children together. You’ve been with the person for a long time. I don’t think there’s ever going to be a point where you don’t deal with the person. I think that if the couple desires to be together and make it work and there’s still love there…, people work things out. I think it’s commendable that people want to keep their families together and strong.”
Although she’s an advocate for making it work, Tiffney says that there are some situations where children would be better off if their parents parted ways.
“If you’re arguing in front of your kids and when you can’t come together, it will probably be best to break up. I don’t believe in doing any arguing, fighting and all that in front of children. It really depends on what’s going on and the individual relationship,” she said.
So what do you think? Is staying together for the kids a wise decision?
We imagine with all the changes that have gone on between rapper The Game and his ex-fiance Tiffney Cambridge, you need a bit of a refresher, so here it is. Last summer, the couple called off their wedding about 10 days before it was scheduled to take place, later said it was back on, and cancelled it all over again. This was before we knew they had a show, titled “Marrying The Game,” which led us to believe that’s what would be happening by the end of their four-episode reality series on VH1. But what really happened when all was said and done, was Tiffney called off her engagement to the Compton rapper and they never made it down the aisle.
Now the pair is back for season 2, and despite a few minor changes, the premise of the reality show is still the same: Tiffney is trying to marry The Game. We had a chance to catch up with the mother of The Game’s children and his longtime partner on Twitter yesterday and she told us some interesting things about the state of their union and plans for the future.

“I Didn’t Want To Marry Just Because The Opportunity Was There”: Tiffney Cambridge On Why She And The Game Haven’t Wed
“Marrying the Game” is back for season 2 and currently taping in LA. For those who tuned into VH1 last season, you know Tiffney Cambridge, fiance to rapper The Game, called off their wedding. Viewers wondered if the show would come back for a second season and if it did, what would it look like? Would they try to get married again or would they live single lives? We sat down with Tiffney to get a few questions answered and to find out what this former school teacher has coming up.
What is the state of the relationship now?
Right now we’re working on our relationship, co-parenting kids and are working through issues we had, that caused me to call the wedding off. We’re rebuilding our friendship.
Why did you call off the wedding?
I didn’t feel at the time Jayceon [Taylor, the Game's given name] was in a place to be married. I didn’t think he was ready and so I wanted to give him an opportunity to get ready before we went through with marriage. Why stay in a relationship if there is no matrimony in the foreseeable future? All relationships have ups and downs and require work, no one is perfect. At the end of the day, we’re family and have been together for a long time. Just because I decided not to marry at that time doesn’t mean I’m giving up on the relationship. A wedding day is every woman’s dream.
How much courage did it take to call it off?
It was very difficult, the most difficult decision I ever had to make. I still deal with having to call my wedding off, but to me, it wasn’t about the wedding day but about the marriage, the commitment. I didn’t want to have a big beautiful wedding and still have to resolve issues that I knew I already had during the marriage. I didn’t want to marry just because the opportunity was there and have to live with knowing I should have listened to my inner voice and govern myself.

“I Want Something You Just Can’t Offer Me”: Tiffney And Game’s Relationship Falls Apart In “Marrying The Game” Season 2 Trailer
If you watched any episodes from the first season of Marrying The Game, you know that while Tiffney Cambridge and rapper Game were a cute couple, their drama wasn’t cute. If he wasn’t flying to different places with other women (okay, it was just his assistant, but Tiff didn’t like that), she couldn’t get him to be serious about planning their wedding. By the end of the season, the title of the show didn’t happen in real life, and as the second season starts, according to the supertrailer released by VH1, they still haven’t been able to get it together.
Cambridge has left Game’s bachelor-pad mansion and taken the kids with her, moving back to her condo. The couple seems to be co-parenting, but struggling to figure out what they’re going to do romantically. In the clip, they go from having a few cute, we-being-romantic-on-the-beach-ya’ll to having a yelling match in the kitchen and Cambridge handing back the engagement ring (“I’m burnt out on you!” he says, “Maybe I want something you just can’t offer me” she says). All in all, the two want to do what’s best for their children’s future, but they aren’t sure what the future holds for them as a couple. Check out the first supertrailer for the new season and let us know what you think of it (and if you think these two will make it).
They are baaack! Tiffney Cambridge and Jayceon Taylor (or as we know him, The Game) will be appearing for a second season of “Marrying The Game” on VH1. Last season, Tiffney and The Game did not get married. In fact, Tiffney called off the wedding and moved out of their home. So what, you may ask, is there to talk about now?
Well, the new season will reportedly focus on how the two are trying to rebuild their relationship. A VH1 press release notes, Tiffney is regaining her independence this time around. And though she is still interested in becoming Mrs. Taylor (not Mrs. Game), she will not marry The Game until he is done with his partying lifestyle. Unfortunately, Tiffney may be waiting a long time for The Game to give up those wild nights.
This new season will also allow viewers to see both The Game and Tiffney raise their two children, Cali Dream and King Justice. There isn’t much time to wait either, as season two of ‘Marrying The Game’ will premiere on Monday, August 5.
Another hip-hop family show we have grown to love, “T.I. &Tiny: The Family Hustle” will also be premiering on August 5, on VH1. On this season, fans will watch T.I. enjoy the success of his eighth album, “Troubleman:Heavy Is The Head,” and the premiere of this summer’s comedy, “Identity Thief.” Tiny will be growing her OMG Girlz business and developing a new girl group called French Kiss.
It is going to be a family affair on VH1, Monday nights! Will you be tuning in?
Tiffney Cambridge aka Mrs. The Game: “There’s A Lot Of Lonely Nights When You’re Dating An Entertainer”
Before 2012, we had no idea that The Game was so serious about settling down. But this year, his romance with teacher and the mother of his two children Tiffney Cambridge was really put out there. On their VH1 show, Marrying The Game, the couple document the days leading up to their wedding. It’s been eight years since these two met at da club and Cambridge says it hasn’t been an easy road as evinced by the fact that she’s sorta, kinda called off the wedding in the last episode. When she stopped by our L.A offices, she made it a point to say that women need to be wary of dating entertainers because it’s a rocky road (which we kinda already knew but still). Peep her advice in the video above.
When I watched Marrying The Game Monday night, I thought rapper The Game’s fiance, Tiffney Cambridge, was a bit dramatic, but angry black woman never crossed my mind. Personally, I was thinking more Yvette from Baby Boy, but apparently the stereotype crossed Tiffney’s mind and she wants to set the record straight before the accusations start running rampant. In an interview with Sister Sister, she told the mag:
“The [show] caught me at a moment when I was really upset. I think that when we’re upset we all show our frustrations by sometimes yelling or maybe saying a curse word or something like that, but is that a representation of who I am? Am I always loud and cursing and angry Black woman? No, far from it.
“I was just mad, mad, mad at that moment, like we all get,” she said of going off on The Game about traveling out of town with his female assistant, adding, “I definitely will keep him in line.”
That last notion is up for debate considering the rapper not only still went on his trip to France, he also still took his assistant with him. But how The Game responds to Tiffney moving out of the house when he returns is still up in the air.
As for the couple’s image and how it relates to Black America, Tiffney said she’s not worried about receiving any type of backlash like her girls Shaunie O’Neal and Evelyn Lozada of Basketball Wives‘ got last season.
“I don’t have concerns about our show being boycotted or anything like that because there’s nothing inappropriate or offensive there. It’s just a realistic look into our lives,” she said. “I think a lot of the issues and the problems that we have, other people face.”
“I try not to judge people. I think that one of the worst things that you can do is to judge somebody else just by seeing them on television, so I try not to do that. I watch them for entertainment,“ she said. “I don’t watch it as a way to look into someone’s life and then judge it or say what I would do or wouldn’t do because you really never know what’s going on in a person’s life unless you are involved in it.”
Sorry Tiffney, but somebody’s judging you honey — more so for your choice of man, though, than your yelling on TV.
What’s your opinion of The Game’s fiance, Tiffney, so far?
While I was getting my fill of Monday night reality TV, I observed an interesting interaction between Tiffney and Jayceon, aka, The Game, on their new show, Marrying The Game. In one of those crazy, overbearing, insecure woman moments, Tiffney completely flipped out about The Game going on a one-day trip to Cannes, France, for a show and bringing his assistant, who happens to be a woman, with him. In between cursing The Game out for leaving his wife (which she’s not yet) at home but taking a b***h out of town with him, Tiffney admitted in her confessional, “I don’t do the female around my man thing.” I sat back thinking, this is a bit much, except I realize for a lot of women it’s not.
Immediately my mind went back to another foiled reality TV plot on the same network in which Lala took issue with Carmelo’s close relationship with his female assistant. Though the level of sincerity in Lala’s claims of concern warranted about a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10, for many women, they don’t do the female around their man thing, especially when said female is waiting on her man’s beck and call in the form of an assistant. After I thought about the Lala reference, my mind then went back to the movie Obsessed, which, in my defense, I wouldn’t know from beginning to end were it not for Idris Elba, but nevertheless it illustrates this concern again. After Idris’s character wifed up Bey’s they had a strict agreement: no female assistants. Granted, Beyonce’s character had a pretty good reason for coming up with this rule since she was once in that position and got her boss to put a ring on it, but is that type of stipulation really realistic in this day and age?
Like attractive nannies, assistants are right at the top of the list of ladies married women tend to be weary of. In the same way you wouldn’t put a slice of chocolate cake in front of someone trying to lose weight, it’s a risky thing for a man to constantly have a young, attractive able-bodied woman on-hand to take care of all of his needs without any of the lip his wife would. With that type of exchange, it’s not hard to see how these affairs pop off so frequently in corporate America. But let’s be real, like Future says, ain’t no way around it. I’m pretty sure the last time I saw a male assistant he was sewing up someone’s garment on a Lifetime Fashion reality show. Like male babysitters and nannies, this just isn’t a profession men are in and if your partner is climbing up the corporate ladder, chances are at some point in his career he’s going to have a woman assisting him. Are you going to throw a tantrum every time a business need comes up that she fulfills, or are you going to establish some reasonable boundaries and zero tolerance behavior?
Personally, to the assistant I say be all that you can be (“make that money don’t let it make you” in my Diamond from Player’s Club voice). But here’s the thing, just make sure whatever it is that you’re being is business-related. Whenever I watch movies showing assistant-boss relationships I think, is this real? People have their subordinates out her picking up dry-cleaning, getting their kids from school, rotating their tires? Those things are personal and when personal and professional lives become too intertwined boundaries are bound to be crossed and that’s when things get messy. This is a prime example of people needing to know their role. The only time an assistant should be assisting her male boss is between the hours of 9-5 and when it relates to assisting said boss’s business needs. Anything beyond that, yes, we do in fact have a problem.
If I were Tiffney I’d be concerned too. I mean we are talking about the same man who wants to legalize polygamy and who unabashedly pronounced that all men cheat. I wouldn’t want him going out of town with his female assistant either, but then again I also probably wouldn’t be wasting my time planning a wedding to a jerk like that. As we’ve already established, a man is going to cheat when and where he wants to. He doesn’t have to go out of the country for that. The truth is, most women likely won’t have any choice in the matter when it comes to choosing who might be assisting her man do his job, so it would behoove most of us to spend more time choosing men who we don’t have to be so concerned about cheating any chance they get and get off their backs and let assistants do what their supposed to do, assist.
What do you think about women’s paranoia over their men having female assistants? Is it warranted? Would you be concerned if your man had a female assistant?
