Congratulations are in order for Cee Lo. HipHollywood has learned that the singer is engaged to Shani James. Cee Lo reportedly popped the question last year, and revealed details of the engagement in an interview with People magazine.
“It was just a typical night at the studio, but then again, not so typical cause I did something extra special, out of the ordinary,” Green, 41, tells People while recounting the engagement. “I went and purchased a ring that we had seen together, maybe four or five months or so prior. I went back and purchased the ring and I just kind of had it stashed away in some old equipment. And I said, ‘Will you reach in there and grab something for me?”
“It was the most beautiful diamond ring I had ever seen in my life. It was lit up by a light,” says James. “I said, ‘What is that?’ He just looked at me and said, ‘Well…?’ And I was just like ‘Oh my goodness.’
She adds, “I said, ‘Babe, I can’t believe it.’ He said, ‘You’ve been such a good woman. You’re such and amazing person. You’re my life partner. You’re my best friend. I want to share the rest of my life with you.’”
Congratulations to the happy couple. Cee Lo’s Heart Blanche is slated to drop later this year.
