Marrying The Game - Netflix
VH1 dove into the unlikely love story of double platinum selling rapper Jayceon Taylor better known as "The Game" and his straight-laced school teacher fiancé Tiffney Cambridge as they prepared to walk down the aisle in "Marrying The Game".
It was anything but love at first sight when Tiffney Cambridge first met Jayceon Taylor. Tiffney was a 5th grade history teacher who took to Jayceon, but wanted nothing to do with his alter ego - the young rapper known as "The Game". Despite her reservations, love blossomed and after eight years and two children King Justice and Cali Dream, Tiffney agreed to marry him. Life is complicated enough for Tiffney as she juggles to balance her career, family, friends, and most of all, being in love with two men: Jayceon Taylor, and the rapper "The Game".
For Tiffney, Jayceon's actions leave her in a constant struggle wondering if she will have to compromise for the rest of her life with his demanding, lavish, and wild career as a rapper. The first two seasons of Marrying The Game showed the difference between the most unlikely of couples and the love that ultimately brought them together but also teared them apart. Season Three of the series focused on Tiffney and Jayceon co-parenting their children and moving forward in their individual lives.
