Life can be full of unexpected, shocking U-turns with Father Time opening up a real can of newer exciting or unexciting bundle of surprises at the nick of time.

This is what happened to Demetria McKinney, award-winning actress, TV reality star and singer who, at 17, struggled as an abused, homeless, single parent to find dizzying success in her career and bag near nuptial prize with long-time boyfriend, only to call it quits and change love lane at the last, last moment!

But what went wrong in their decade-long dating relationship? Read here to find out what could have possibly forced her to walk out of marriage at the penultimate moment after earlier flashing her beau’s engagement ‘stone’ in public! 

All ready for the Wedding bells, almost!

Demetria McKinney was in a decade-long relationship with Roger M Bobb. The two met around 2006 at Tyler Perry Studio during the production of 'House of Payne,' where she portrayed the role of Janine Payne. Robb was the executive vice present of the Tyler Perry Studio when they met.

Everything was honky-dory for Dimitrea, who already had a boy born in 1997 from a previous relationship, and her longtime boyfriend Roger Bobb, a film and TV producer, with whom she was going to get married to become husband and wife officially.

Dimitrea and her boyfriend, Roger Bobb even got engaged back in January 2016, and she showed off her “stunning new rock” on her selfie, loaded on Instagram, where she wrote

"It's true! I'm no longer #RogerBobb girlfriend! We are #engaged! Thank you to all who rooted for and supported us!"

Exciting news: The RHOA star captioned this snap on Tuesday 'It's true! I'm no longer #RogerBobb girlfriend! We are #engaged ! Thank u to all who rooted for and supported us!'

Demetria was over the moon with happiness at her impending wedding, when it was unexpectedly aborted! 

The bombshell Instagram!

The breakup news came rather abruptly and swiftly from a Demetria's Instagram comment to a fan, just as the wedding date was nearing its last leg.

Although the reason remains unclear, an incident is reported to be the primal reason for their split. A year before their engagement, a woman had bragged

“I dated him, too — not last November, but the November before that.”

Although visibly shaken at this shocker, Demetria had assured a well-wisher then saying “I’m absolutely fine,” adding “almost positive” that the ‘braggart’ was lying. But deep inside her, she clearly failed to reconcile to the fact that Roger did not cheat on her.

Her self-esteem shattered, and she waited until the very last moment to announce her break-up through an Instagram as if to avenge her hurt pride. 

The New Beginning

In September 2016, the month they were scheduled to wed, Demetria reconfirmed her new relation with Neal Ante through an Instagram image.

She seems to have moved swiftly, putting all the bitter past behind, don't you think so?

Keeping her love life aside, Demetria, whose net worth is estimated at US$3 million, is proud of her son as well, as she Instagrams,

The sudden breakup of the wedding of Demetria and Roger Bobb sadly proves that nothing can be taken for granted in life and even a tinder can raze the house to ashes instantly.
