Tammy Slaton Makes Relationship With Boyfriend Mikey Mooney Facebook Official; Mikey Denies Dating ‘1000 Lb Sisters’ Star For “Fame or Clout”

“I got me a new man, y’all!”

Tammy Slaton has a new man in her life. 

The 1000-Lb Sisters star is reportedly dating Mikey Mooney, and based on a screenshot shared by The Kelsey Diaries on Instagram, Mikey is quite smitten with the Slaton sister, who is currently in rehab and preparing for weight loss surgery.

“Words can’t even express how safe and loved I feel when I’m with you I’m forever grateful for everything you do my love. I love you so much,” Mikey wrote on Facebook last week. “Cheers babydoll your the best thing to have ever walked into my life.” 

The couple frequently interact on Facebook, with Mikey revealing earlier this month that he was traveling to Ohio–- the location of the rehab center that Tammy has been seeking treatment since late 2021. (She has reportedly been able to stop smoking, drinking alcohol and eating junk food while there.) 

As The Ashley told you last week, Tammy has reportedly made so much progress at the facility that she is expected to complete her stint at the center earlier than her doctors anticipated, which will allow her to undergo weight loss surgery sooner. She is set to go under the knife in June at a hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.

Earlier this month, Mike posted a photo of himself and Tammy holding hands– presumably taken at the treatment facility during his visit. 

“No matter what we go through babygirl I’ll remain by your side holding your hand through it all, good and bad times I’ll be right there guiding and pushing you and us to our goals in life,” he captained the photo. 

Tammy and Mikey made their relationship “Facebook official” in early May, and Mikey has already assured the naysayers that he loves Tammy— and not her fame. 

According to In Touch Weekly, a friend of Mikey’s commented on Mikey’s updated relationship status, asking, “How the hell did this happen? You trying to make it into Season 4 [of “1000 lb. Sisters’] or something?”

“I don’t care about the fame or clout,” Mikey responded. “I chased her for three almost four years now, and now I’m the happiest I’ve been in years. 

“I just want her to succeed,” he continued. “I don’t care what she looks like; it’s what beats on the inside of her chest that counts. I want to help her through everything.”

  1. It’s wonderful that Tammy lost enough weight to have surgery but she also needs intense therapy sessions to deal with her issues. She also has to grow up and stop blaming her family for everything that’s wrong in her life. To me she is very rude and disrespectful to those around her. I think the family needs to not only support her on her successes but also to stop enabling her behavior.

  2. I’m proud of you Tammy. Keep up the good work. Mikey take care of her!! Wish you both happiness.

  3. Can she get the surgery now? Like today? If she’s under the threshold then get it done. I’m afraid she will fall off the wagon. She’s definitely down ain’t she!

  4. Tammy definitely has a type. She probably met him online and he probably has a fetish for bigger women. Just like the previous losers shes dated.

  5. She doesn’t look like she has lost all the weight the other reports claim. But it’s hard to tell with those weird filters she likes. And she still has the trach in. So, I highly doubt she’s leaving the facility anytime soon.

    I’m happy she found someone, but I just wish that for a year, she would stop looking for love from others and work on herself. If you have no self-worth, you’re just going to keep attracting losers, who just use and abuse you.

    Focus on the things that caused the overeating, work with a therapist, and start focusing on ways to get healthier and get the trach out, and things that will allow her to be independent, that’s what’s going to make her feel better about herself.
