For months it was rumored that singer Ciara was dating NY Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire. Whether they are actually a romantic item has yet to be confirmed by either of them.

UPDATED: According to Hip Hollywood, they are indeed a couple:

Just interviewed Ciara and she admitted that she and Amare are indeed a couple. She was very shy about it and said "you know I don't talk about my personal life" but when I pushed she shook her head laughed and said yes they are a coouple. She added that this is a very happy time in her life and that she is really enjoying herself! She and Amare were snapped at a party after the Met Gala last night.

Ciara and Amar'e stepped out together last night to attend the Candie's Foundation 2011 charity event to prevent teenage pregnancies benefit gala at Cipriani 42nd Street.

Amar'e was dressed by designer and friend Rachel Roy. I have no clue who dressed Ciara, but she looks nice.

Aretha Franklin, who underwent gastric bypass surgery to reduce weight late last year, performed during the event.

    She is the Queen, and one of the greatest singers alive, but the hair, and the way that the pearls are hanging ever so gently betwixt her breast made me chuckle uncontrollably.

    I'd like to say congrats but its not easy being optimistic with these athlete relationships. But good luck to her and congrats on the financial come up if nothing else.

  • mirsmommy

    Amar'e looks bored out of his mind. :lol:

    *deep sigh* Miss Aretha, that off the shoulder dress and garbage azz bra is a :nono:

  • prynsexxx

    Is Aretha's dress really meant to be an "off the shoulder" dress or are her :boobs: demanding that the dress looks better that way?

  • rjk8

    Aretha had to have been close to 400 pounds. She looks like she's about 250 now. What is up with black women embarrassed to admit they had the surgery? Is it because they fill they're betraying the "I'm fat and sexy dammit" black women?

He is also dating Rachel Roy who he took to the Met gala and had Ci-Error tag along in the cut. She is so damn stupid and talentless!!!!

  • ohpretty1

    Aretha is just wrong on so many levels. Her 'sex symbol' days were over when she last fit into a size 10. I thought she had a hair net on also, so I don't feel bad. You can tell she has 10 too many yes men surrounding her.

    If she's 250lbs now, then she must be like 4'11"

    I was wondering the same. If Rachel is his so called stylist then if I was ciara I would be walking in with my MAN while Rachel tags along. Something aint right

  • MzDetermined

    I love Aretha in all, but I wish she would get a push up bra or something I know she realizes she sagging from to colar bone down to her waste.

    newbie:Y'all know that NO ONE tells Aretha "NO"!tape:
    She must LOVE the dresses where her BOOBIES (in my Jordan from Bernie Mac voice)are on display...They just go along with whatever SHE wants to wear..ALL HAIL THE QUEEN...

  • KishaMinyonn

    All respect to Aretha, but she look like she forgot to put in her top dentures.

  • http://chokolatemilk.blogspot.com Choco aka Hippie

    :rofl: at the update she was very shy about it - HARD FACE

  • cocoa49

    Hmmmmm....cute couples usually don't last. There is absolutely no chemistry at all. This looks more like a business deal then a relatiionship. Just saying......good luck to her anyway.

  • Iblondon

    Ciara always been quiet about her "relationships". She needs this lil publicity and the money I guess.

  • dmgeorge

    Is it just me or does Aretha look like Granny Klump in the Nutty Professor? The hair is awful and her breast are like 2 feet lower from where they are supposed to be. With ALL her $$$$ she needs to do better.
