CeeLo Green Reveals Engagement to Longtime Girlfriend


Primary Wave MusicCeeLo Green has revealed to People magazine that he’s been engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Shani James, for about a year.

The singer discusses the details of the proposal with the magazine, saying it happened while at a recording studio one night. He recalls, “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?'”    

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

CeeLo, who’s been married once before, says they’d kept the engagement a secret because “our private life is sacred.” He says wedding planning has not yet begun.

CeeLo will release his new album, Heart Blanche, on November 13.
