Tabitha Brown will remember 2021 fondly. She’s partnered with The Calm App, launched new seasoning with McCormick, and had a successful book launch. Brown is now set to open her first vegan restaurant, Kale My Name, in Los Angeles. Tabitha noticed Kale My Name while filming The Chi in early 2021. 

She contacted its owner, Nemanja Nekac, with a proposal to expand the business. Nemanja agreed to make Brown a restaurateur by making her co-owner of the brand’s California branch. “It’s officially happening!” Tabitha shared on Instagram. “I’m opening my very first restaurant. I’m so thankful.”

Tabitha’s husband, Chance Brown, has supported Tabitha throughout her journey. Let’s take a closer look at him and their children.

Brown defended her marriage after Wendy Williams questioned Tabitha’s decision to retire her husband

On 26th June 2021, Tabitha Brown shared via YouTube that she’s retired Chance Brown from the police force. She described it as a 15-year dream come true. An elated Tabitha shared:

“When my husband went on this journey, he really felt like he could make a difference and I know that he has in his community. He has done his part. But I also know it’s time for him to dream again.”

Talk show host Wendy Williams didn’t share in Brown’s happiness. She referenced her experience with retiring a husband and stated that it doesn’t end well. Wendy foresaw a situation where Chance will blame Brown after his investments fail. Williams shared:

“They invest in something else then the money gets swindled or stolen. Then they invest again and he comes home and throws his bag down. She’s like ‘What? What?’ And he’s like, ‘I can’t do this and this is your fault. You’re over here making your money and stuff and had me quit my job.”

Tabitha responded to Wendy by defending her relationship with Chance. Brown sympathized with Wendy for what she went through and stated that Chance and herself had stuck together for 23 years despite going through plenty of hardship. Tabitha said:

“Twenty-three years I’ve been with my husband, broke for a very long time together. Struggled for a very long time together. Succeeded for the last couple of years together. I did ever year with him in the LAPD and he did every year with me with rejection and no’s in the entertainment industry.”

Brown added that she stuck with her husband because she’s allowed God to lead the marriage. “He [God] is first in our marriage. Not money, not business, not success, but God. He’s first,” Brown concluded. 

Tabitha’s husband had one daughter, Tyleah, before getting into a relationship with Tabitha

Tabitha and Chance Brown started dating over two decades ago, and they have been married for 17 years. On 19th April 2020, Chance attached the following caption alongside an Instagram photo of the couple:

“22 years together/ 17 married… @iamtabithabrown still looks at me the same way. I’m truly blessed. I say thank lord for allowing us to grow together and for allowing us not only to love each other but like each other as well.”

When Chance started dating Tabitha, he was already the father of young Tyleah Brown. Tyleah is ever-present in Brown family photos, and most people assume that she is Tabitha’s biological daughter. Tabitha treats Tyleah as her daughter, and the bond they share comes out clearly on social media. 

Chance Brown is a TV personality who co-hosts the IGTV show, Fridays with Tab and Chance, together with his wife. He is also a businessman with a profound interest in basketball. Through his organization named, ‘Team Chance Basketball,’ he teaches children aged 5-12 to build relationships through the fundamentals of basketball. 

Chance is a family man who is extra supportive of his wife’s and children’s endeavors. When Tabitha chose to go vegan, he supported her by going vegan as well. Chance often posts his son’s and daughters’ accomplishments on Instagram. In a recent Instagram video featuring photos of his family, Chance explained the importance of family to him: 

“For me my family is the most important thing in my life. As a Husband and Father there is not a day that goes by where I don’t think about what I can do more, say, learn, etc to be a better man.”

In March 2020, she told her mother to start posting videos on TikTok, and it turned out to be spirited advice. “She picked it up pretty quick,” Choyce told The New York Times. “I just thought she would be a good fit because she’s really comforting.”
