In February 2022, Mecole shared a cute photo of the two of them together, calling Chariah his “ride or die.” In August of that year, Chariah shared a ton of photos of herself and Mecole on her Instagram with a loving message for him. “I truly adore & appreciate the man you are & becoming. I never knew what true love was until I met you,” she wrote. “Thank you for loving me through everything & allowing me to be me. You genuinely make me happy & i’m glad to be your partner.”

A few months after going public with their romance, Chariah revealed that she was pregnant with the couple’s first child in October 2022.

She’s Dabbled in Music
Besides her fashion and beauty brand, Chariah has also shown off her musical abilities with a few R&B singles. She released her debut single “Drownin” in 2016. She took a bit of a break before dropping her follow-up single “Pressure” in November 2021.

Like some of the other Chiefs’ partners, Chariah has also gotten a chance to bond with tight end Travis Kelce’s girlfriend Taylor Swift. In fact, Chariah even shared a cute photo of herself and Mecole hanging with Travis and the popstar after a game and included a shot where Taylor was giving her beau a kiss on the cheek.
