Rapper Cee-Lo Engaged To Longterm Girlfriend

Congrats are in order as Cee-Lo is not engaged to marry his girlfriend Shani James.

The Grammy Award winner made the news to People magazine on the set of his new video, “Work.”

“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, told People. “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?’”

When Shani went over, the ring was there and the proposal was made.

“It was the most beautiful diamond ring I had ever seen in my life. It was lit up by a light,” Shani said. “I said, ‘What is that?’ He just looked at me and said, ‘Well…?’ And I was just like ‘Oh my goodness.’”

Shrouded in privacy, the pair have actually be engaged about a year, but have decided to keep the news quiet. They have not made a marriage date public.

“Truth be told, it’s not something we wanted to promote ,” Cee-Lo said. “We’re a collective power together because our private life is sacred. But you know what though, maybe it’s time. Maybe it is time for the world to know that I have a very secure situation and a loving woman supporting me the entire way.”
