(Our Love Story#16/4 (fb) - BTS) - Tiffany Tinsely
was a hard-working blues singer managed by Bruce, who was secretly in
love with her and waited for her after each performance. Her talent
brought her increasing recognition and fame.
(Our Love Story#16/4 (fb)) - After a particularly
stellar stage performance, she passionately embraced Bruce and realized
that she was drawn to him, yet still went out on an unexciting date
with a local jock. The next day, Bruce arrived excitedly with a
multi-million dollar recording contract and the two finally kissed

Tiffany Tinsely may have been her stage name -

Profile by Grendel Prime.
Tiffany Tinsely has no known connections to:
Bruce was Tiffany Tinsely's music manager, helping to
organize her tours. He was wildly in love with her, but held back due
to her pursuit of her blues singing career. He secured a million-dollar
contract, finally gaining a passionate kiss with her, and he declared
his desire to marry her. But she refused, feeling that it would
interfere with her career, so he quit by leaving a note at her
Hollywood Bowl concert. However, he didn't realize that Tiffany had
changed her mind during that performance and she would henceforth
always sing the blues for him.
