If your friend told you that they knew a guy to set you up with — and then they told you he was a Teen Mom super fan, father to maybe as many as nine kids — but at least five children (that he doesn’t pay child support for), and an author of a book about childhood sexual assault… You’d probably pass.
What if we told you that also he still has a girlfriend, who happens to be a reality star?!
All of this sounds like a recipe for disaster — but it seemingly wasn’t enough for Tiffany Bassett to pass on the catch that is Matt Baier!
On last night’s Teen Mom OG, Amber Portwood and her on-again, off-again fiancé decided to be “off again” after the mom-of-one, 27, found out that her man, 46, cheated on her.
Though they didn’t identify the woman that Matt was exchanging Facebook messages with on last night’s episode, many fans believe the woman at the center of the controversy is Tiffany Bassett, who previously came forward saying she had an affair with Matt.
So who is Tiffany? Get to know her — and her relationship with Matt — in the post below!
She’s a tattoo artist.
Specifically, she specializes in paramedical tattooing, which can be used to cover up scars or adjust pigmentation in the skin.
She’s a cancer survivor.
Her decision to dedicate her art to paramedical tattooing is a personal one — as she’s battled cancer herself.
Their relationship started as strictly business.
In an interview with All About The Tea, Tiffany said that she first interacted with Matt after he promised money to help her open her own tattoo shop.
“Matt contacted me back about investing in a new shop, and I was interested in telling my story in the process,” she explained. “I was excited to possibly land a celebrity client, as well as a new business venture.”
She’s a mom herself.
She has three kids; as she told All About The Tea, “My motive was always business, and providing for my three children.”
She has remorse about the part she played in the drama.
“I regret the day I met Matt Baier. I believe that it’s important to expose the truth, btu I regret that Amber will be hurt in the process,” she said. “I am sorry for my actions, and I look forward to putting this nightmare behind me. I tried every private avenue, including telling production, family members, and friends before going public.”
You may have caught her on the small screen already!
She was caught on camera in his Being Matt special!
