There may already be trouble in paradise for Porsha Williams and her new beau Dennis McKinley.
Earlier this month, ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Porsha Williams announced her engagement to Dennis McKinley and the impending birth of their first child. Fast foward, Dennis McKinley is being accused of a number of troubling things by the daughter of his ex-girlfriend.

In a now deleted Instagram post, Jamecia Simmons, daughter of Dennis’s ex-girlfriend Shanise Thomason, alleges Dennis physically abused her mother during their relationship, while also accusing the business man of being a “fraud” and a “crook.”
Jamecia’s post about Dennis comes after a lawsuit Dennis filed against her mother was uncovered. In that lawsuit, which was filed in 2015, Dennis accused Shanise of “trademark infringement, conversion and other wrongful acts” in connection to his hair weave company, Queen Virgin Remy. We do have to note that these are simply allegations against Dennis, and have yet to be proven true. Jamecia writes:
“I have been quiet the whole time McKinley since my mom @hairbyaoki has been in this lawsuit with you but you will not lie & make her look bad. All this fakeness to get on TV. You ain’t nothing but a fraud, crook & a thief. You out [here] holding Porsha stomach in pics but the whole time my mom was pregnant by you, you jumped on her and beat on her. Am I lying McKinley?”
“All the hurt you caused my mom, I will never forgive you!!! You asked my mom to be your business partner in Queen Virgin Remy because you didn’t have the money to start it, then you go & lie & take it from us. I finished school early to help build it & this is what you do? You put your name as the sole owner knowing you didn’t even have the money or even a car to get around in.”
It doesn’t end there as Jamecia also accused Dennis of using Porsha for fame. She wrote:
“You have been trying to get on TV the longest, that’s why you tried to settle with my mom before the show aired but everything you have done to people is gonna come out!!! You are the DEVIL & your karma is about to come back around.”
Shanise, Jamecia’s mom and Dennis’s ex, also shared a now deleted post about Dennis, accusing him of repeatedly calling her following her daughter’s post.
“The sad thing is women will want a man so bad especially if they have money but don’t do a background check to see who they stole it from or hurt to get it,” wrote Shanise. “@Porsha4real, get your man & tell him to stop calling!!! She’s not answering!!! Leave My Daughter, Me & my Friends Alone!!!”
Porsha and Dennis have yet to respond to these allegations. Radar Online reports that Dennis and Shanise ultimately settled their bitter lawsuit on July 16, 2018. The former couple reportedly agreed upon a confidential settlement which prohibits Shanise from using the ‘Queen Virgin Remy’ name. And before this lawsuit was filed by Dennis, he also filed court papers to have Shanise evicted from his apartment on February 21, 2014. She was evicted on April 29, 2014.
The new season of RHOA premieres November 4 on Bravo. Judging from the video trailer, it appears Dennis will be a major part of Porsha’s storyline as Kandi Burruss and Porsha’s younger sister Lauren Williams are both shown trying to warn her about him.
