“[Tipps and I] instantly… gravitated to each other because of our personalities,” Wright told Inside Edition in February 2019. “It was strictly a friendship, and [we] really just opened up with each other. We were both married and both in bad marriages and confided in each other because we both understood.”
Tipps has also suggested that the duo even joked about their failing relationships. “When I met Brittany, I was just like, you know, ‘Hey, my marriage is way worse than your marriage,’” he told Del Sol Photography in September 2018. “‘Way worse than yours is!’ And she was like, ‘No, mine is way worse!’”
Ultimately, though, Tipps and Wright would have to part ways and return to their respective spouses. Yet ahead of Wright’s trip back to Dallas, she received a stunning text from her husband – a message, in fact, that would go on to shape the rest of her life.
