Tanasha Donna has previously dated Diamond Platnumz and the two are blessed with a son, Naseeb Junior.

Unlike other celebrities, Tanasha Donna’s love life has not been as controversial as compared to what we’ve witnessed with her peers in the industry.

Diamond had just broken up with Zari Hassan because of infidelity issues when Tanasha came into the picture.

Like most celeb news, fans got wind of Tanasha Donna and Diamond Platnumz’s relationship through the rumour mill. As celebrities do, both poured water on the rumours.

Eventually, Diamond Platnumz came out and confirmed their relationship. This was during the inaugural Wasafi Festival in November 2018.

He was really in the feels and even said that he felt like Tanasha Donna was the one that he could marry.

Their wedding was set to go down on 14th February 2019 but the two pulled the plug on what Diamond wanted to be a “Royal wedding.”

In a candid interview with Carole Mandi Media, Tanasha revealed that their relationship, just like any other, went through a rocky patch.

Despite that, she maintains that she did everything to mend the relationship but her efforts were not enough to salvage it. Tanasha and Diamond have a son named Naseeb Junior.

“I don’t want my son to grow up without a father. But I can’t be the only one fighting for this relationship. So I had to think about what’s best for me and my son too. Towards the end, things got rocky for about six months but we were still trying to see how we could make it work.

“It got to a point where you feel like the other person has just lost interest. It’s not because of anything emotional, I would say it’s because of not living up to certain expectations he had in the relationship. For some people, it’s not easy to handle.” Tanasha shared

The pair parted ways in 2020 after Tanasha Donna in a cryptic Instagram post declared that she was single.

Soon after, she moved back to her home country Kenya from their matrimonial home in Tanzania. Both parties have remained largely silent about the matter since.

Previously, Tanasha Donna was involved with Kenyan actor and commercial model Nick Mutuma for about six months before they broke up.

This is the heartbreak that kickstarted her relationship with Diamond. It’s also rumoured that Tanasha may have had an affair with Ali Kiba during this time.
