RAPPER Kevin Gates and his wife Dreka sparked rumors they’ve split after he was spotted with Love & HipHop: Miami’s Jojo Zarur.
Kevin and Dreka married in 2015 and celebrated their 18th anniversary in October 2021.
Who is Kevin Gates’ wife?
Kevin and Dreka Gates started dating in 2003 before deciding to tie the knot in 2015.
Dreka rose to prominence when she starred in cameos for Kevin’s music videos, and fans were ecstatic about their relationship.
Eventually she branched out and built her own social media platform where she shared an insight into her lifestyle.
The decision to build a social media presence came from Raheem, a man she knew who was taking care of her digital integration.
Dreka told The Source in 2016, “He created the account and he was like, ‘Okay Dreka, you’re live.'”
“I’m like, ‘F*CK!’ I was really, really scared because I heard how critical people were and I was like, ‘I don’t want to expose myself to this bullshit,’ you know.”
She added: “But it was crazy to see how many people knew about me and just cared about me like that. I thought, ‘Wow, that’s crazy!’
“My thing just plays the background, but now it’s like, ‘No, girl, you’re on the front road.'”

Aside from her social media presence, Dreka is a co-founder of Bread Winner’s Association, a record label she founded with Kevin in 2010.
They formed the label after Kevin Dreka said he wanted to pursue a musical career.
Dreka told the outlet that at the time, Kevin was “always recording, but he only did it in a room in his grandmother’s house.”
But when he said he wanted to do it professionally, she did her homework.
“I learned everything I could about the industry on my own because nobody’s going to just say, ‘Hey, come on, let me show you the ropes!'”
“We pretty much went our own way,” she said.
are you still together
In March 2022, rumors surfaced questioning whether Kevin and Dreka had broken up after a cryptic post on social media.
In the post, Kevin wrote: “Sometimes we miss our X’s but it’s in the past for a reason – don’t you remember the smell, the arguments, the energy expended, not reaching your goals, the money you could have made , the money you screwed up, the time you should have invested in yourself – fuck it. #Carry on.”
Fans received little more clarity on June 4, 2022, when Kevin posted a video response to a fan asking where Dreka was.
“Man fall this peace and all that BS where is Dreka? Stop playing with us,” the fan wrote.
They continued, “Your true fans are inspired by you and her as a unit and example of Black Love.”
In Kevin’s response, he said, “I guess I lost a fan for making myself happy.”
According to the post, Kevin was seen dining with Love and Hip Hop: Miami star Jojo Zarur at a restaurant in New York City on June 7, 2022.
They were seen taking photos for fans and a video shows Kevin and Zarur hugging as they walked away from the fans.
Kevin released his single Super General on June 9, 2022, which appears to confirm their split.
The music video features photos of Zarur while Kevin raps, “I took the blame in interviews and made it seem like I was tripping.
Do Kevin and Dreka Gates have children?
Kevin and Dreka are parents to daughter Islah Koren, born November 30, 2012.
Their son Khaza Kamil was born two years later on May 10, 2014.
The couple both had children before they got married, and they’ve kept their children’s lives out of the spotlight ever since.
Dreka had home births for her two children, which she attributes to her decision not to vaccinate her children.
“I don’t believe in conspiracy theories,” Kevin told Rolling Stone.
Kevin said of his beliefs, “A lot of kids who were born in a hospital had a lot of hardships that they didn’t have to experience.”
Dreka said her decision not to vaccinate her children echoed Kevin’s, but giving her children a water birth was something she said stemmed from a near-death experience she once had in the hospital.
“I had an incident in hospital a few years ago where I almost died in the care of hospital doctors,” Dreka told The Source.
“That was my main motivation.”
She added: “Also, I’m very into natural things. Both of my children were born in the water.
“It’s the greatest experience in life, dear. It was like euphoric.”
