Kelly Rowland Engaged to Manager Tim Witherspoon
The Hollywood rumor mill is spinning, but for once it has nothing to do with a jaw-dropping celebrity baby-to-be. Kelly Rowland finally has a ring on it, and it’s from her manager, Tim Witherspoon.A source close to the former Destiny’s Child singer shared the news with The Hollywood Reporter. “She has been showing [the ring] off to friends and family and is very happy. She wants to…enjoy [it] and celebrate for a bit longer,” the source confirms.
The rumors of an engagement first hit the street when people noticed Rowland rocking a huge diamond on her hand during a birthday video that was posted on a friend’s Instagram account. But thanks to this “close source,” it sounds like things are official for the couple — although neither Tim nor Kelly have confirmed the engagement or commented via their social media accounts.
If the story is true, this will be Kelly’s second engagement — the first time she said “yes” was to NFL player Roy Williams in 2005. The ex-couple called it quits just two months before walking down the aisle. In an interview with Cosmopolitan UK, the 32-year-old admitted she wasn’t ready. “I was too young for marriage,” she revealed. “But sometimes you fall down and you learn from it.”
Perhaps that relationship was the one she described in ‘Dirty Laundry,’ a song featured on her fourth studio album, ‘Talk a Good Game.’ The track centers on an abusive boyfriend.
