When it comes to Gospel music, Yolanda Adam’s name stands out among others. Besides being a singer, she is also an actress, radio host, and record producer. Right now, this multi-grammy award winner is single. She was married twice. But unfortunately, both marriages ended in divorce. So what was the reason for the divorce? Has there been any boyfriend rumors after the divorce?
First and Second Marriages Fail:
Adams was married to Troy Mason in 1987, but after one year, the couple divorced. Regarding Troy and Yolanda, there is not much information.They have kept a low profile about their relationship.So, she hasn't revealed anywhere why she had to split with her husband but it is reported that she had to suffer from domestic violence. After all, it’s too much to take strong hands assaulting you physically. She is found quoting about this pain as.
“I stand before you tonight having been thrown across [a]
room, having been punched in the face, but let me tell you how good God is. When that man’s fist came toward
my face, he could not hit me in the face.”
She then married Tim Crawford in 1997, a former NFL player. They both have a daughter named Taylor Adams Crawford
I just told my Taylor how beautiful she looked as she went to her friend's Sweet 16 dinner. She replied "Mom, you're always beautiful to me"! How 'bout I'm crying as I send this. I have an Amazing Young Lady for a daughter!! Tell your loved ones what they mean to you Love Y'all P.S. This photo is us backstage at the 2014 #BETAwards?
But sadly, after staying seven years in the marriage relationship, in 2004, they called it quits.The information on why she had to undergo divorce is not mentioned.However, some of the sites report that she was harassed by her husband making her second child to be a miscarriage and that followed the divorce in short time.Here is what she has got to say about being a divorcee.
“Well one of the myths about divorce, is that somebody did something…There are just times when it just doesn’t fit anymore, for whatever reason,” Adams told CP. “When people tell you ‘hey I just can’t do this anymore, you’ve got to respect that.’ So what you do is you respect that person’s feelings, you respect that person’s space.”
