When is Sheree's Boyfriend Tyrone Gilliams Getting Out of Prison

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield has been pretty open about her relationship with her currently incarcerated boyfriend Tyrone Gilliams.

Sheree, 47, finally came clean about her relationship with Tyrone on this season of the Bravo series, after initially denying she was dating him in the past.

However, one information she refuses to divulge is his release date. When asked, she either plays coy and pretends she doesn’t know, or misleads viewers when she says she’s expecting him to get out of prison within a year.

So when is Tyrone getting out of prison? We have that information for you below!

According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Tyrone’s release date is November 14, 2022. Yes, that means Sheree’s beau isn’t scheduled to be released for over four more years.  That is one long wait!

Tyrone, 51, is currently incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institution in Yazoo City, Mississippi. It is described as a low security federal prison.

As for the reason Tyrone is in prison to begin with, he was convicted of wire fraud for stealing more than $5 million from investors. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison back in 2013.

Tyrone, a former basketball player who attended Penn State University, essentially stole millions by running a Ponzi scheme, and then used that money to live a lavish lifestyle. He bought luxury cars, jewelry, and even threw extravagant parties and events – hiring celebrities to host them with the money he stole from investors.

In addition to the 10-yr prison sentence, Tyrone also faces three years of supervised release once he gets out. Additionally, he was ordered to make restitution in the amount of $5 million, and to forfeit $5 million according to FBI records.

Sheree has made no secret of her plans to marry Tyrone once he gets out of prison. Seems like those plans will have to be put on hold for a few more years.
