Ginuwine rose in the music industry in the 90s when soulful R&B songs were on the rise due to the influence of R. Kelly. With the rise of Kelly, multiple singers arrived on the scene, imitating the controversial singer. Ginuwine was slightly different from the singer but lay in the same sandbox. The singer was not only able to find his grove in the 90s, but he was also able to be privy to a lot of success as his albums went multi-platinum.
Elgin Baylor Lumpkin was not only a singer, though, but he was also a parent and a family man. The singer is not so famous nowadays even though he still tours with his past materials; the new music scene outdated many past acts. The artist was nearly at the top of the music scene in the 90s and stably produced projects, but the same cannot be said for the singer's personal life. His family life is, without a doubt, chaotic, not his married life, but the extra relationships he needed to maintain over the years.
Ginuwine is the Father of Nine Children
This is not a common occurrence in the current society because of all the barriers to raising multiple children in the current economic condition. The singer, though, Ginuwine, was not following the same regime, and over the years, he became the father of multiple children, later revealed to be nine in 2009.
At the start of the year, the singer revealed he is the proud father of nine children, Ramonda, Tiffany, Elgin, Ginel, Story, Dream, Dejan, and Cypress. The last two were his stepchildren, and they were the children of Sole, his wife, before the two met.
Ginuwine was Married to His Wife Sole for Over Ten Years
By the late 90s, Ginuwine was a successful singer, and his career trajectory was moving in the right direction. The singer then met rapper Sole before the turn of the century. It was like a match made in heaven, and in 1999 the couple started dating and developed feelings for one another.
In 2001 they became the parents of daughter Story, followed by a second child in 2002 whom they named Dream Sarae Lumpkin. The couple raised the two daughters while the other two children of Sole also lived with the family.
But as time passed, the relationship between Sole and Ginuwine deteriorated. Sadly, the power couple separated in 2014 after over ten years together. The couple called time on their marriage, and they decided to get a divorce, which was finalized in 2015.
Sole later got married to Public Enemy band member Professor Griff. Sole and her new husband are still together after over two years of marriage.
Ginuwine and Tiffany Don’t See Eye to Eye
Nine children meant providing each and every one of them with some amount of time which Ginuwine was able to manage. The problem with being the father of nine kids is that not everyone will like you. This is the case with Ginuwine and his daughter Tiffany, who are unhappy with her father.
Multiple messages between the father and daughter were revealed later, showing her calling Ginuwine a deadbeat father. It is safe to say Tiffany and Ginuwine are not particularly warm about their relationship, and the father of nine is also not handling the whole thing nicely.
The messages also showed him calling her names and saying rude things. But if both are weighed on their merit, both are at fault.
