Yolanda Adams & Her First Marriage Heartbreak
Singer Yolanda Adams was first married to her first husband, Troy Mason, in 1988. Much to their early relationship and how they met and fell in love is a secret. Other than that, they had a private wedding ceremony too.
Unfortunately, Yolanda had to give up all the marital vows she made on their big day in 1990 when the pair decided to divorce. But, what was the reason? Apparently, Adams later came forward to reveal that Mason had abused her, making it known publicly that was why she ended their marriage.
