Sheree whitfield is not on good terms with her boyfriend Tyrone Gilliams … because his reality TV career almost cost him his freedom.
Sources with direct knowledge told TMZ … the ‘RHOA’ star and Tyrone – who is currently on house arrest – have not spoken since an incident on November 6, when Sheree told Tyrone that she was leaving New York to visit him in Philadelphia.
The problems started a few hours before their date… because Sheree told Tyrone that she would have an “RHOA” film crew with her when she got to town.
We’re told Sheree wanted him to come and film a scene with her at a restaurant – but, obviously, that would be a huge no-no for Tyrone due to his home confinement. To put it plainly, a judge could have thrown his ass in jail … if he was gone.
That’s why he gave up on filming, and the production told his lawyers that they would just edit the show to make it look like Tyrone had stood up for it.
To make matters worse, this photo started circulating online… showing Sheree sitting alone in a restaurant in Philly. The eagle-eyed fans noticed 2 menus on the table – not to mention the film crew – and assumed Tyrone was there to shoot scenes.
Even if he wasn’t, he was concerned about the optics with the courts.
As we first told you … when Sheree returned to “RHOA”, she was clear she wanted her relationship with Tyrone to be a big storyline – but that seems to have gone off the rails now. Since the Philly incident, we are told they have not spoken, and there has been no apology from either side.
We have reached out to Bravo … so far no words in return.
