Kelly Rowland confirms engagement to Tim Witherspoon


The singer has officially confirmed that she is bound to marry her manager, Tim Witherspoon.

The announcement was made during a pre-recorded episode of “The Queen Latifah Show” that is set to air this Wednesday (Dec. 18).

“He put a ring on it,” she said.

“It’s been a while,” Rowland told Latifah. “We’ve kept it very, very low — for years, to be completely honest.”

The X Factor judge revealed Witherspoon popped the question while she was in Bulgaria without him.

“He asked me first on Skype, and I was like, ‘We’re so far away from each other!’ [But] it was that simple to say yes. I have my best friend to ride through life with.”

She continued, “It was so late, I remember we were both just kinda like, honestly, just staring at each other. And he asked me, and it was just that simple to say yes. I was like, ‘I got my best friend to ride through life with.’ He really is my best friend.”

Rowland has been engaged in the past, in 2004, to football player Roy Williams but they ended the relationship two months before the wedding.
