3. Mos Def and Alana Wyatt
Alana Wyatt was known as one of the hottest strippers around back in her day. So it is pretty easy to see why Mos Def wanted her to get off the stripper pole and jump on his…yeah, well, we know. And Def got his way with Wyatt. Despite Def being a devout Muslim, he overlooked Wyatt’s trysts with numerous wealthy athletes and musicians who also picked her up in clubs. Def was still in the process of cleaning up a previous marriage but couldn’t resist moving quickly ahead with Wyatt. They ended up being married for years and then it all came crashing down. However, these days, Wyatt has gone the route of self-publishing to get her memoir out. Her story is one of abuse, neglect and being entrenched in the world of prostitution, drugs and stripping. Her marriage to Def was tumultuous and in addition to the issues they had internally, Wyatt also accuses Def of being a bigamist (that’s a story for another article). For now, this relationship ended up epically failing and Wyatt is searching to latch onto whatever money she can from it.
