One of the dexterous and astounding NBA players, Jayson Tatum, a member from Boston Celtics, has amassed huge success.
He started his basketball career by joining Chaminade College Preparatory School. After being a part of Chaminade, he was trained by a coach, Frank Bennet. He toiled hard so that he could give his best to his team. As a result, he averaged 13.3 points and 6.4 rebounds per game, being a freshman, and got rated as a five-star recruit in his high school.
After graduating from high school, he joined Duke University in 2016. Also, he played basketball at Duke for one year, and the success followed him when he tried his luck for the 2017 NBA draft; he got selected with the third overall pick by Boston Celtics.
Has a Wife Or Girlfriend?
Well, there is still a mystery whether Jayson is married or not, as there is no news of his wedding. However, he does have a girlfriend. And she is none other than Bood Up singer, Ella Mai, as confirmed by MTO News. The couple officially started dating from early 2019.
Starting from 2017, he was in a relationship with a volleyball player named Samie Amos.
Meanwhile, he also started dating his best friend from high school, Toriah Lachelle. As the news of Toriah being pregnant with his baby surfaced out in 2018, he dumped Samie instantly. In January 2018, he welcomed his baby son named Jayson Christopher Tatum Jr.

Despite having a child, his relationship with Toriah deteriorated, and the two parted ways in early 2019.
Jayson's Parents And Sibling
Jayson is the first son to his mother, Brandy Cole, and father, Justin Tatum. He has a younger brother named Jaycob Tatum.
When he was born, his parents were only 19 and were not married to each other. So, his mother decided to raise him alone. She also left her mother’s house so she could properly look after Jayson, but it didn’t happen the way she thought.
The decision took a toll on both the mother and son.

As Jayson's mother was pursuing an undergraduate degree in Political Science and Communications then, she had to take him to her classes because there was no one to look after him at home.

Not only that, there was a time when they had nothing, not even a roof to cover their heads as they lost everything in an electric fire. To feed Jayson and pay utility bills, his mother worked out multiple jobs; she even cleaned houses and public bathrooms.
However, she didn’t give up: she left no stone unturned to help him grow as a gentleman. For good, all her sacrifices became worthwhile as Jayson landed as an elite player of the NBA.
