Barkevious Mingo Wife: Is He Married?
Barkevious Mingo is private about his love life. So, it is unclear if he ever married his girlfriend Lauren Tarver or not. But being a football player up in the spotlight, it’s almost impossible for Barkevious to take Lauren as his wife without being caught by the paparazzi. Furthermore, his socials provided no insight on his married/dating life. This leads us to believe that Barkevious wasn’t married as of 2021.
Also, rumors had that Barkevious and Lauren have long split up.
Just in case you missed their dating history, the two started seeing each other before 2013. Lauren was still in her bachelor’s at LSU then, and we guess that the two met while at the university as well. They were later spotted together on various occasions; especially at Barkevious’s football games.
Barkevious’ now ex, Lauren V Tarver works as an associate in the corporate practice group, Jones Walker LLP, and was also a member of the economic development team and public finance team.
Before that, Lauren was an assistant district attorney for the Caddo Parish District Attorney’s Office for almost 4 years. She has also worked with several reputed personas such as Governor-Elect John Bel Edwards, Greg Traver, and Mathook, and Lafleur.
