Tay Conti has recently became Tay Melo recently, and has now given a full reason as to way.
In a new interview with Denise Salcedo, Melo commented on the reasoning behind her sudden name change on AEW TV.
“Short term I just changed my last, which is like a restart for me. Everybody knows that was my ex’s last name. I got married but I never really had a wedding. I never had a wedding. I had pictures in Brazil because I was modeling. So I just took some pictures back in Brazil with my ex because the model that I was supposed to do the photoshoot with got sick. I have never had a wedding before… I never changed my name legally, I just put his name on my work name, so I was like ‘well it doesn’t make sense to have his name, I gotta change it,’ so I put my real last name.”Tay Melo to Denise Salcedo
Time will tell how long the name change will last but for now Tay is happy to be using her real last name once again.
