Adewale Ogunleye isnt single. He is still dating Sanna Lathan.

Lathan is on TJMS w Tyler Perry doing interviews for their new movoe "Family That Preys". She mentioned that Ounleye got "NFL Defensive Player Of The Week " for the start of the 8-9 nfl season in his game against the Colts.

Thus, they're still dating.
