Love After Lockup: Are Eric Gayton And Puppy Still Together?
As per Michelle’s Facebook, she and Eric Gayton have been together since June 7, 2021.
As per the article published by Screen Rant on December 1, 2021, Puppy was looking for dresses, following Eric’s proposal via a text message, in an attempt to tie the knot as soon as possible. With Puppy getting into trouble for violating parts of her probation, she did not want to go to prison unmarried.
Puppy’s mom was not too happy with her daughter’s hurry to tie the knot whereas Amber sarcastically said Eric isn’t worthy of seeing Puppy in that dress for how he asked her to marry him.
However, it seems like the marriage never happened and Puppy also never had to return to prison.
In August 2022, Puppy discovered she was pregnant with Eric’s baby. In that particular episode, Puppy was not happy seeing the pregnancy test come back positive. While Amber suggested the first thing Puppy should do is tell her fiance Eric the news, Puppy did not think it of as a great idea and kept the news to herself.
Almost a month later after Puppy found she was pregnant, Eric found his fiance and fiance’s bestie Amber following him while he was driving.
Eric was agitated and rightly so because the man was reportedly picking his daughter up. Back home, Puppy was stressed and thought of many ways to confront her boyfriend before she decides to tell him that she is pregnant right.
Eric Gayton Wife
Eric Gayton has a very strange relationship with his wife, Heather Davenport. For the longest time, Heather was quiet but she finally started talking.
In November 2019, Eric’s wife had problems with the photo Eric posted on social media of him and his girlfriend Michelle. She demanded that he take the picture down. In the comment section, she wrote, “Please take this down. I’d rather not be on here while I’m alone and you are with someone else.”
When one social media user suggested that Eric was carrying on his relationship with Puppy despite being married to Heather, Heather’s reply was simple. She simply commented with an emoji of a clapping hand, which spoke volumes about Eric’s nature.
According to Heather, Michelle dated Eric despite knowing that he was married to someone else. She also revealed that they cannot remain far from each other due to Eric’s chronic health crisis. On top of that, the duo also shares a daughter.
Eric’s Facebook shows that the two got married in 2014, which means they have been married for more than eight years. But, it seems like the couple has finally parted ways as Heather updated her relationship status to “Single” recently.
Heather filed for divorce from Eric in March 2022. However, the divorce was delayed because she was unable to locate Eric to serve him the papers. As a result of not being able to serve papers to Eric, Heather again had to file a “service by publication” in July. That essentially gave Heather the freedom to proceed with finalizing the divorce.
Although Eric and Heather may be free from their marriage now, the two are still fighting the meth case. They had a court date on September 17, 2022.
The former husband-wife duo was arrested after cops served a warrant for someone else living at the house. At the house, Heather tested positive for both methamphetamine and marijuana before leading agents to where she and Eric hid their controlled substances. Police found marijuana, oxycodone, methamphetamine, a digital weighing scale, multiple plastic bags, and $6,110 in cash.
