Wade McKenzie Former Miss USA Nikki Poteet’s Boyfriend

Wade McKenzie

Wade McKenzie is the boyfriend of former Miss United States and Miss Virginia USA beauty queen, Nikki Poteet. It is not certain if the couple is still together following an incident in which Poteet allegedly attacked McKenzie.

Recent reports indicate the gorgeous blonde was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm. How can a petit 29-year-old can cause body harm you ask? Well, authorities say on December 16, Poteet and her boyfriend were at Neutral Bay when the attack took place.

As a result, Wade McKenzie has taken out an apprehended violence order against the former Miss Virginia beauty queen.

Brittany Nicole Poteet was born March 10, 1987. She is originally from Richmond, Virginia, and became known as Nikki Poteet after she was crowned Miss Virginia. She went on to compete for the title of Miss USA at the age of 24 in 2011.

Nikki was forced to hand back her crown after she posted a photograph on Facebook showing her wearing the head piece with the caption ‘Miss Alcoholic USA’. That wasn’t her only scandal.


It is not the first time the blonde beauty queen faces controversy. Apparently she has a history of getting violent with boyfriends.

Back in 2013 Nikki was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault and battery following a dispute with her ex-boyfriend, James McElroy.

For her luck, the charges were dropped after Mr McElroy told court he could not recall the incident when prosecutors asked him what had happened.

In 2011, her then-roommate accused her of making homophobic slurs against him. She denied the allegations.

Her most recent drama concerning her beau Wade McKenzie led her to make an appearance in the Downing Centre local court in Sydney. She is expected to enter a plea before her next court appearance.

The blonde has a double degree in nuclear engineering and biomedical science. According to her LinkedIn, she works as a recruitment consultant at a renewable energy firm and as an events coordinator for a solar energy company in Sydney –where she has been living since her move in 2014.


We found a Wade Mckenzie in Australia who happens to be the founder of Strata Republic –a real estate business. His website states he has more than a decade of experience, and his counsel is sought by many prominent property developers, international real estate organizations and Owners Corporations.

However, we can’t confirm if this Wade Mckenzie is Nikki’s Wade Mckenzie.
