Brooke added, “The first time I got married, I was like 20, and the second time I got married, I knew I should not have been marrying him, but I was like, ‘I’m going to do it for my kids,’ which was the wrong decision.” In the past, she was also romantically linked with Rashard Lewis, the ex-NBA for whom she appeared on the show.
