At 19 and with his fame and Puma money, Uncle Vinny should have no trouble getting a girlfriend. At the moment, though, he appears focused on securing the bag and not in jumping into a relationship.

He once admitted that his focus is on making good money and taking his parents out of the hood into a great neighbourhood. Given how focused he has been about that dram, it shouldn’t be long before he realized it.

For now, a girlfriend and a relationship can wait.
