If you have ever watched the 'Heartless' of Kanye West and 'Drunk in Love' by Beyonce, you must have enjoyed its videos. 'Heartless' has beautifully presented the taste of rotoscoped animation and 'Drunk in Love' has poured a pure form of love on the beach. It is non-other than a multi-talented, most creative director and a film-maker Hype Williams who is credited behind the astounding videos.
Hype Williams has received several awards and titles for his fantastic works including the Billboard Music Video Award for Best Director of the Year in 1996 and MTV Video Music Award for Best Rap Video in 1998.
The director of Nicki Minaj’s Massive Attack, Hype was dating with Sasha Lee Dindayal, aka, Sasha Gates. His ex-girlfriend Sasha is a reality star from the series WAGS and also a fashionista. Besides, she is also counted as an ex-fiancee of retired American footballer Marcellus Wiley.

Director Hype had a break up with Sasha after acknowledging that she was cheating on him. Later the same thing repeated when she was dating Marcellus, but it was even worse breakup than with Hype. It was stated that she also had to return the Range Rover that Marcellus had gifted her.
Further, it uttered that Sasha went broke after the breakup and had to sell her Mercedes. She was left with no ride but not for long. She soon found another man to depend on, the NFL player Antonio Gates. What is more shocking is that the pair end up getting married in July 2011. As of now, they share two children Ayla and Aven.
On the other hand, Hype has remained closemouthed after he had a bad breakup with his former girlfriend, Sasha. As of 2019, the director is reportedly married. So, it may take some days or years to see Hype showering the news of his future wife.
Hype’s net worth is speculated to be around $14 million, and it is worthy concerning his appreciative works and creativity. He has worked with several renowned faces of Hollywood including Jay-z, 2Pac, Kanye West, Busta Rhymes, The Notorious B.I.G., and Coldplay.
