Three years after Tiffany was born, her father left the family in the sole care of her mother, Leola, who later married another man who would become a father figure to Tiffany.
From her mother’s new marriage, Tiffany came to have four half-siblings, including two half-brothers and two half-sisters. Tragically, in 1988, Tiffany’s mother, Leola, was nearly killed by her stepfather’s plot. He had manipulated the brakes of his car, which had caused an accident which had left him with serious brain damage, which had caused him to develop schizophrenia. Tiffany’s stepfather’s original plan was for Tiffany and her siblings to be involved in the accident, but luckily they did not join their mother on the day of the tragic incident.
Due to schizophrenia, Tiffany’s mother, Leola became violent towards Tifanny and her siblings. As a result, Tiffany had to be placed in foster care alongside her siblings.
After years of being estranged from her biological father, Tiffany found him with the help of her future husband, William Stewart, who is a detective. It was Tiffany’s dream to dance with her dad on her wedding day and she couldn’t be happier when her detective flame told her she could make it happen. Tsihaye was found in Philadelphia. Although Tsihaye doesn’t want his daughter to get married, he makes her dreams come true and walks her down the hall with her on her wedding day, which Tiffany describes as the happiest day of her life.
