Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta star Sierra Gates says that “engaged means married” after she announced her upcoming nuptials to Brooklyn-born rapper BK Brasco.
Gates posted a photo of the massive rock on her finger on Instagram with a caption simply reading, “I said yes.” After announcing her engagement, Gates said in an Instagram video, “Engaged means married.”
According to a press release from Brasco’s representatives, the proposal took place at the grand opening of his flagship clothing story Band of Brothers. The statement continued, “BK made sure it was a night to remember for his supporters, but also for his longtime girlfriend, Sierra Gates (VH1 Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta, Beauty Mogul, and CEO of The Glam Shop). The couple entered the event together; as a parking lot full of supporters, family, and friends awaited the ribbon cutting and official opening of the doors. After the doors opened, black curtains dropped and huge letters that spelled out, ‘Marry Me’ lit up the entire room with rose petals cascading on the marble floor. As Sierra stood shocked staring at the letters, she then turned around to find BK on bended knee.”
Also present at the proposal were Love & Hip-Hop stars such as Safaree, Erica Mena, Spice, Mimi Faust and Yung Joc.
Gates & Brasco Have Been Together Since 2018; Both Have 2 Children From Previous Relationships
The couple has been dating since 2018, they debuted as a couple on season seven of Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta.

Gates has two children, Paris and Mason, with her former husband. Brasco has two children from a previous relationship.
It hasn’t been smooth sailing for Gates and Brasco’s relationship. Fellow Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta star Karlie Redd revealed to Gates that Brasco had a relationship with a stripper named Amber Priddy. The couple also had a public fight during season eight when Brasco appeared at Gates’ daughter’s 15th birthday party with printouts purportedly showing text messages she sent to another man. Brasco capped it off by giving Gates condoms in a gift bag.
Sierra Gates Says that She Has a Net Worth of $1 Million
Gates is the owner of The Glam Shop, a beauty salon in Atlanta, Georgia. She has been covered in the media extensively thanks to her entrepreneurial skills. In December 2020, Gates told Forbes about how she built her beauty brand beginning as a make-up artist for dancers at a nightclub. Gates also spoke about her role on Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta saying:
I never came on Love & Hip Hop to be an actual reality star. In the mix, I became that. But, I came in with a mind frame of, ‘I’m going to get on T.V. I’m going to use this platform to push my business…
I use my platform to talk about all of my businesses and help girls like me, that came from situations like me or just any girl across the world to be a businesswoman. I feel like if I could do it, a high school dropout and teen mom, then anybody can do it.
In October 2020, Gates told the New York Post that when she became pregnant as a teenager, she was homeless. Gates described her net worth as being over $1 million during that interview.
