In September 2018, the pair got engaged, with Watson proposing to Taylor with a stunning engagement ring.

However, the two lovers called off their engagement in November 2019 for unknown reasons, as they had done previously. They even purchased a property in Encino, California, for $2.75 million in early 2019.

Domestic Violence

Joy had a terrible relationship that ended in a heartbreaking separation. The FS1 athlete exposed how she was abused by her former partner in an episode of Undisputed.

Not to add, her ex used to assault, choke, and suffocate her, and even threw Joy down the stairs on one occasion.
