Rapper Kevin Gates and his wife Draka sparked rumors that they broke up after seen with Love & HipHop: Jojo Zaruhr from Miami.
Kevin and Draka got married in 2015 and celebrated 18 years of marriage in October 2021.
Who is Kevin Gates’ wife?
Kevin and Draka Gates started dating in 2003 and decided to tie the knot in 2015.
Draka began to get noticed when she made cameo appearances in Kevin’s music videos, and fans were fascinated by their relationship.
Eventually, she broke away and created her own social media platform, where she shared insights into her lifestyle.
The decision to create a social media presence came from Raheem, a man she knew who handled her digital integration.
Draka said Source in 2016 “He created an account and said, ‘Okay Draka, you’re live.’ I’m like, “F*CK!” I was very, very scared, because I heard how critical people are, and I just said, “I don’t want to expose myself to this nonsense,” you know.
She added: “But it was crazy to see how many people knew about me and were interested in me. I thought, “Wow, this is crazy!”
“I’m just playing in the background, but now it’s like, ‘No girl, you’re on the main street.’
In addition to her social media presence, Draka is the co-founder of Bread Winner’s Association, a record label she co-founded with Kevin in 2010.
They started the label after Kevin told Dreka that he wanted to pursue a career in music.
Draka told the publication that at the time, Kevin “was always recording, but he was just doing it in a room at his grandma’s house.”
But when he said he wanted to pursue it as a profession, she did her homework.
“I learned everything I could about the industry on my own, because no one is going to just say, ‘Hey, come on, let me show you the ropes!’ It just won’t happen.
We’ve pretty much just chosen our own path,” she said.
Are they still together?
Rumors began in March 2022 when the question arose if Kevin and Draka broke up after a cryptic social media post.
In the post, Kevin wrote: “Sometimes we miss our X’s but that’s in the past for a reason – don’t you remember the smell, the arguments, the energy drain, not reaching your goals, the money you could have made, the money that you screwed up, the time you should have invested in yourself is fucked up. #Continue.”
Fans got a little more clarity on June 4th when Kevin posted a video response to a fan who asked where Draka was.
“Dude, leave this world and all this nonsense, where is Draka? Stop playing with us. Your true fans are inspired by you and her as a unit and example of Black Love,” wrote a fan.
In response, Kevin said, “I think I lost a fan for making myself happy.”
Following the post, Kevin was spotted dining at a New York City restaurant with Love and Hip Hop Miami star Jojo Zaruhr on June 7th.
They were seen taking pictures for fans and video shows Kevin and Zaruhr hugging when they left the fans.
Kevin released his single Super General on June 9th, confirming their split.
The music video shows photos of Zaroor as Kevin raps: “Took the blame in an interview and made it look like I was tripping / Made up the song ‘Dreka’, lied to the world trying to protect my image.”

Speaking about his beliefs, Kevin said: “Many children who were born in the hospital experienced great difficulties that they did not have to experience.”
Draka said that her decision not to vaccinate her children was the same as Kevin’s, but the water birth for their children, she said, was due to a near-death experience she once had in the hospital.
“A few years ago, I had a case in the hospital where I nearly died while being cared for by the hospital doctors,” Draka told The Source.
“That was my main motivation. In addition, I love everything natural. Both of my children were born in water. This is the greatest experience in life, love. It was like euphoria.
“You will go to another world. You will love it and you will think: “I can do it again!”
