Where is Loleini Tonga now?
Following the death of her fiancée and NFL player Chris Henry, Loleini Tonga was seen to have kept away from the spotlight.
Although Tonga did open up on her sons Chris Jr. and Demarcus, also known as Man-Man and Bubba, in an interview with Bengals.com in 2019 marking 10 years since their father’s passing.
At the time, Tonga whose name was seen to have been changed to Leini, revealed her sons were both student-athletes with Chris Jr following in his father’s footsteps with football, while DeMarcus enjoyed playing basketball.
Jones recently opened up about the adoption while appearing on the latest episode of the Club Shay Shay podcast, which was released earlier this week (30 August).
He explained: “Everybody knows me and Chris was best friends in college. I’m still close with his whole entire family. I’m still close with Leini which is the boy’s mom.”
Jones later added: “We were just talking and I was like Leini I gotta get the boys so I can take what we’ve done so far and like maximise it.”
