Reality TV has made it incredibly easy for people to become famous for all the wrong reasons. Natalie Nunn is a prime example. Nunn became popular in 2009 when she featured on the fourth season of the show Bad Girls Club. She quickly gained notoriety for her angry outbursts and violent behavior. In the years since the show, Natalie’s bad girl reputation has continued to follow her. When her name appears in headlines, it typically isn’t for something positive. However, is there more to the former reality TV star than meets the eye? The answer is yes. Keep reading to discover 10 things you didn’t know about Natalie Nunn.
1. Allegedly Cheated On Her Husband
In 2012, Natalie Nunn married professional football player, Jacob Payne. Unfortunately, however, their marriage hasn’t been a smooth ride. Early on in the marriage, Payne expressed anger about the types of photos Nunn posted on Instagram. In 2015, the couple appeared on Marriage Boot Camp to try to resolve their issues. However, in 2018 reports emerged that Nunn had cheated on her husband during a threesome with British TV personality, Dan Osborne. The stories were never confirmed, but they seem to have done considerable damage to the couple’s relationship. Reports have indicated that the couple has split and may even be heading towards divorce.
2. Competed In The Junior Olympics
Natalie Nunn may not seem like the athletic type, but the reality could not be further from that. She had a passion for sports from a young age and was even part of the track team in high school. Her talent was such that she was able to compete in the Junior Olympics in 2002. In addition to track, Natalie was a soccer player and was a member of the women’s team during her time at the University of Southern California.
3. Wanted To Be An Actress
Natalie had always dreamed of becoming an actress and so she ultimately chose to drop out of college to pursue her ambition. Although appearing on a reality TV show is far from an acting gig, it at least enabled her to be in front of a camera and make a name for herself. Fortunately for her, her initial appearance on the Bad Girls Club led to numerous other TV appearances.
4. Was A Bridesmaid In Tanisha Thomas’ Wedding
In addition to appearing in season four of the Bad Girls Club, Nunn also featured in spin-offs and other shows on Oxygen. During her time with the network, Nunn formed a strong bond with fellow bad girl, Tanisha Thomas. The two grew so close that Nunn was a bridesmaid in Thomas’ televised wedding.
5. She’s An Entrepreneur
Thanks to the Internet and social media, reality TV stars can extend their 15 minutes of fame indefinitely. Natalie Nunn has taken full advantage of these platforms to start and sustain her own businesses. She currently has a lash and cosmetics business, and is a brand ambassador for the Flat Tummy Co.
6. She’s A Mother
Natalie Nunn’s road to motherhood hasn’t been an easy one. In 2014, she and her husband, Jacob Payne, announced that they were expecting their first child. Unfortunately, shortly after, they shared that they had experienced a miscarriage. After this, Nunn struggled with depression and weight gain. The couple tried again in 2016 and, in 2017, Nunn gave birth to their daughter, Journey Ruth Payne.
7. Dated Some High-Profile Celebrities
Reality TV stars may not be on the same level of stardom as actors and musicians, but they do tend to cross paths. Natalie Nunn has rubbed shoulders with quite a few A-listers and her love life has been linked to celebrities such as Wiz Khalifa and Chris Brown. While Natalie claims to have had a relationship with Chris Brown at some point, Brown has denied ever knowing her.
8. She’s An Author
Natalie Nunn may not fit the mould of a typical author, but that certainly hasn’t prevented her from writing and publishing three books. In 2013, she released two autobiographical works: Straight Like That and Turn Down for What, which document events in Nunn’s life. The following year, she published another book titled From Bad Girl to Grown Woman. Is it just me, or does it seem like everyone is writing a book these days?
9. Had Plastic Surgery
Mommy makeovers are becoming increasingly popular. The term refers to surgical procedures done for new mothers to expedite their ‘snap back’ process. Natalie Nunn has no qualms about showing off her results of her mommy makeover, taking to Instagram to flaunt her new body to her followers. There are also whispers that she may have had plastic surgery to reduce the size of her chin, although this has yet to be ‘officially’ confirmed.
10. Had Beef With Amber Rose
In the entertainment industry, beef is just part of the business. It’s not uncommon to hear about two stars who suddenly don’t like each other for no apparent reason. With that being said, many people weren’t too surprised when beef between Natalie Nunn and Amber Rose began circulating the Internet around 2011. The beef, which many believed was rooted in the fact that both women had dated Wiz Khalifa, escalated to the point where Nunn was calling Rose out in interviews. During an interview in 2011, Nunn asserted that the beef had absolutely nothing to do with Khalifa and called Rose out for allegedly not having enough money to pay her assistant.
