While speculation continues to buzz about Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts planning a secret gay wedding to her partner, many are more curious to know who exactly is Storm Sahara.
Sahara's Facebook page stated that the 28-year-old is a film director, producer, writer, author, actress, boutique owner and fashion consultant. Storm is an activist in the LGBT community and her age makes her 24 years younger than 52-year-old Roberts. Sahara is based in New York City and is also a mother, according to her Twitter page. On Tuesday she posted on Facebook a picture of her daughter striking a pose.
Her Twitter page is flooded with images of fashionable styles and Sahara captioned many of the pictures #FashionStylist Contact me for your transformation," proving her interest in the fashion world.
Sahara broke off her relationship with Roberts briefly sometime in 2012 and did not support the morning show host when she underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat the rare blood disorder MDS, a source told The National Inquirer. Sahara preferred a discreet relationship away from the spotlight.
"Storm didn't want to be in the spotlight, and the relationship soured," the insider said to the publication, cited n a report published on Feb. 27 that Roberts was trying to woo her back at the time. The source added that Roberts "understood."
In March, music and entertainment website Mstarz.com received a tip that Roberts and Sahara are in a private relationship and "a date has been put in place for a private wedding." The ceremony will reportedly be very intimate.
"According to Robin there will be no family or coworkers involved. Kind of sad because I thought at least she would invite her Glam Squad or co-anchors. But this is their wish in agreement," the source claimed of the couple.
