As for the potential newcomer, Traci Lynn is not new to scandal or drama.

After all, she made headlines a decade ago after Tiki – a retired running back who played for the New York Giants – left his pregnant wife for her.

Tiki married his first wife, Ginny Cha, in 1999. They went on to have two sons: Atiim Kiambu Barber Jr., now 18, and Chason Barber, now 17.

But in 2010, while Ginny was expecting the couple's now-11-year-old twin girls Ella and Riley Barber, Tiki wanted out.

The story at the time was that he cheated on his then-wife with Traci Lynn, but both of the accused have long denied the rumor, maintaining that Tiki was separated from Ginny by the time they got together.

Tiki and Ginny's divorce was finalized 2012, and eight days later, he married Traci Lynn. They will celebrate their 9th wedding anniversary on July 19.

The two share two young daughters, Brooklyn and Teagan Barber.
