If the name, ‘The Texas Temptation’ ever flashed by you, then you were probably seeing an article on the American model, actress and reality TV star, Mehgan James – who is famous for her appearance on the series Bad Girls Club. Although known for her voluptuous and tempting looks, viewers of the series probably know her more for her dramatic exit after a bitter fight with two co-stars, including Keke Palmer. Asides that, she also made headlines for her brief brush with Rob Kardashian who was reportedly in another relationship at the time. Thus, there have been questions about her current relationship status ever since.
Mehgan James’ Bio
Mehgan James was born in Houston, Texas, on February 11, 1990, to a middle-class African-American family. She and her six younger siblings were raised in Houston. Although there are no specifics about her childhood, early education, siblings, parents or what they did for a living, we know she attended the University of Houston. However, her major and minor courses of study are not known.
Mehgan James’ rise to stardom has been quite spectacular. From what many would call a lesser-known model, she eventually hit the screens with her appearance in the first season of Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club. After her sudden elimination from the first season of the show, James re-appeared in season nine; where she eventually had a bitter fall-out with her housemates and left the show for good. The fall-out was laced with barbs which she and two other housemates exchanged on social media for a few days.
It all started when a fellow star, Keke Palmer, tweeted about Mehgan James’ seemingly weak role as an opponent on the show; Bad Girls Club. What followed was an avalanche of retaliatory tweets between the stars; with some comments best read from their Twitter handles. The barb-exchange continued for a number of days before fizzling out. Although brief, the publicity she’d gained was enough to keep her in the public eye. While some saw an even-tempered lady, others saw and admired her outspokenness and stance for what she believes in. Plus, her sex appeal and killer curves won her a sizeable fan base. Mehgan’s once limping modelling career soon took a whole new turn. She would go on to appear in other reality TV series, including, 50 Cents: The Money and the Power where she emerged as one of the finalists on the series.
As of 2019, sources estimate Mehgan James’ net worth to be around $400 thousand. Much of her fortune comes from her career as a model and actress. However, we have no tabs on how much salary she earns annually or otherwise.
Husband or Boyfriend of The Actress

Her romantic ride with the NB star gave her a taste of the Basketball Wives experience. According to sources, the relationship ended because Brown cheated on her.

Perhaps her biggest publicity came in 2016 when she was rumored to be dating Rob Kardashian. According to news sources at the time, Rob was dating a new girl identified as Mehgan James. Rob, who was dating Black Chyna at the time, claimed he didn’t know Mehgan James. In her own words, she confessed to not knowing how the rumors escalated. However, social media gurus sensed a publicity stunt at play. For now, we don’t know her to be in any relationship or marriage.
