With a new episode of Basketball Wives airing on Wednesday, we’re going to see the aftermath of OG revealing to the ladies (and the public) that Kristen’s husband, Thomas, is not actually Byron Scott’s biological son. According to Cece Gutierrez, it wasn’t a secret that Byron formally adopted Thomas when he married ex-wife Anita Scott, but the world definitely didn’t know anything about that.
The whole incident has plenty of people talking, including, surprisingly, Thomas’ biological father. The man, T.K. Carter, took to Instagram to show love to his son and granddaughter this week.
“DGAF! What Nobody Has to Say,” he wrote. “My Son Is One Blessed Handsome Youngman, Because My Father THOMAS CALVIN CARTER R.I.P. was HANDSOME, Talented and Blessed. Passed that down to me. 👍🏾🙏🏾Thanks Pop’s for giving me Life and Thank You God🙏🏾 For Thomas Kent Carter Jr. And my Grand Daughter. Blood Don’t Lie Looks and Talent don’t either.”
If T.K. looks familiar to you, it’s because he’s an actor and comedian. His IMDb page is stacked, but you may be familiar with him from appearances on Good Times, the role of Mike Fulton on Punky Brewster, The Sinbad Show, The Steve Harvey Show, How to Get Away With Murder and most recently, The Bobby Brown Story.
Interesting enough, T.K. let the cat out of the bag that Thomas was his son last year. He posted a photo of himself, Thomas and his granddaughter on Instagram saying, “Just Keeping it Real. My Son, & Grand Daughter.”
Thomas, however, has mostly looked at Byron as his father, and posted about him — at least, before this season began and family drama between Cece and Kristen caused things to go sour.
As for Kristen, she confirmed after last week’s episode that Byron is not Thomas’ blood father and said they weren’t ashamed of that truth.
“Having to relive my husband and his FATHER’S personal business be aired like it was is disgusting!” she wrote on Twitter. “NEVER am I or Thomas embarrassed about his genes. Byron is his Father, blood couldn’t give him more of that title!”
“Adopted children to me are even more precious bc you get to choose to have this particular person in your life,” she added. “You choose that love! Byron and Thomas chose each other. His biological father is as important!”
