We've seen exes confront their breakups and even make up so far this season of A Night With My Ex. And the surprises kept on coming in the most recent episode when, during their night together, Tahir came out to his ex-girlfriend Melicka, whom he had suddenly left without explanation.
Tahir recently opened up to The Daily Dish about why his reunion with Melicka on A Night With My Ex felt like the right time to finally tell her the truth. "No time ever felt like the right time.... but I knew that if I wanted to live in peace I needed to take the bull by the horns," Tahir said via email. "I knew that Melicka would be the perfect person to support me through this."
Though he said he wishes he had come out to Melicka sooner, Tahir is also content with the way it happened. "I also believe things happen when they are supposed to," he said. "I'm not sure I would have had the courage without A Night With My Ex."
Tahir told The Daily Dish that he had come out when he was 15 to a group of friends, who had supported each other all these years, but he had never come out to anyone in his family. He expressed on A Night With My Ex that he was particularly concerned about how his father would take the news. Though Tahir told The Daily Dish that he has not spoken to his dad since the episode aired, he did receive a text from him which said, "He loves me and is proud of me." Tahir added, "I love my dad, I plan on building a closer relationship with him now that the hard part is over."
After coming out to Melicka on A Night With My Ex, Tahir said that several of his relatives have reached out to him, showing their love and support. "Others are silent, I will give them their time to cope," he shared.
But all in all, Tahir couldn't be happier now that he's come out. "I feel so FREE!" he said. "I am amazed by how many people, including my family, support me."
Tahir has a special someone in his life these days as well. "He is AMAZING!!!" Tahir gushed. "I plan on finally introducing the person I am dating to my family! (This will be a first)."
Tahir and Melicka's relationship is better than ever, too. "Melicka and I texted through the whole show... we are BFFs; she actually came to stay with me for a while here in Atlanta afterward," Tahir shared. "We are great! So much more open with each other."
