Dreka Gates husband
Dreka Gates (nee Haynes) is a manager and business partner of rap artist Kevin Gates, who is also her husband.
Hailing from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Dreka was raised in a well-off family alongside younger brother David Haynes. Her mother’s name is Sharon “ShaSha” Haynes. Gates initially planned to be a doctor but changed her mind and went on studying fashion merchandising at Louisiana State University. Her parents were disappointed by her decision and stopped supporting her financially. After that, the young girl tried various odd jobs.
Today, Dreka Gates is a successful woman who has her own clothing and skincare lines, energy drink, dog kennel and rental houses/flipping properties. She also works on some TV projects and mobile apps along with dedicating much time to charity. Besides, together with Kevin, she co-founded Bread Winners’ Association, a record company which expanded into a lifestyle brand.
Dreka and Kevin Gates got acquainted when the girl was a high school student. After about 10 years of relationship, the sweethearts finally tied knots on October 17, 2015. However, they became parents before the nuptials. In 2012, their firstborn, daughter Islah, drew her first breath. And in 2014, she was joined by a baby boy named Khaza. In December 2019, the spouses announced that they were expecting baby #3.
Dreka has always been an extremely supportive wife who stayed next to Kevin no matter if he was incarcerated, cheated on her or had any other troubles. She states that her husband is her best friend and she has never tried to change him. By the way, the rapper’s single Dreka is dedicated to her.
A curious fact: in February 2020, Dreka shocked her Instagram fans by posting videos of her breast implants removal. She stated that the implants affected her health and that’s why she removed them though it’s unclear why she wanted everyone to see the process.
