Sorry, ladies. Kodak Black has been taken off the market by a fellow "rapper" named Mellow Rackz.

The ex-con, who was recently released from prison, announced his surprise engagement on Instagram.

According to a social media post, Kodak arranged for a plane to fly by her home with the message "Might as well marry me Melody. I love u" on the back.

A video shared by Rackz on social media showed the plane, Kodak holding a box containing a giant diamond ring, and then Mellow wearing the ring as she hugged her husband-to-be.

The 19-year-old also confirmed she was engaged by sharing a picture of herself and Black, government name Bill Kapri, swapping spit on Instagram. She captioned the image: "Mrs. Kapri. I said yes."

Although she is reportedly a rapper, there are no YouTube videos of her music, nor does she have any singles on Spotify or any other streaming service.

Her Instagram account is stocked with photos of her showing off jewelry and handbags with no source of steady income.

In one typo-filled post, she wrote: "Before you speak on me that I'm self-made been touched ms and I purchased all my jewellery and I purchased all jewellery, 230k on the patek, 80k on my AP, 100k on my neck [sic]."

She continued: "I own three cars, I'm 19 years old. I don't need nobody for s**t. You got a problem, talk to god abut it."

The engagement news comes as a shock to fans. Just last week he was wooing rapper JT of City Girlz.

He allegedly bought JT an $80,000 Patek wristwatch and a room full of handbags and roses on Valentine's Day.

When the comedy film "Coming To America" premiered in theaters in 1988, Black women everywhere expressed their dismay that Eddie Murphy's character, Prince Akeem had colorism issues.

At issue was Vanessa Bell Calloway's character, Imani, who was groomed by her father to be Akeem's obedient and subservient wife.

On the day they were to be married, Akeem ordered her to "bark like a dog" and "hop on one leg" in a humiliating and degrading manner.

Akeem and his loyal man servant traveled to New York to pick his queen, Lisa, an arrogant and self-entitled light skinned woman, not a dark-skinned, regal, beautiful African woman like his mother, the Queen.

In an interview with Page Six, Calloway confirmed suspicions that colorism issues played a role in her casting as Murphy's queen-to-be.

"When you have white people hiring Black people in movies, sometimes a certain look is wanted," said Calloway, who added that Murphy and the other executives "wanted a light-skinned girl" to play Lisa.

"I just wasn't light enough. Even though Eddie had the final say on who played Lisa."

Murphy chose Shari Headley to play the part of Lisa McDowell.

"That's something that we've always dealt with within our race: A lot of men were indoctrinated by having a white woman or light-skinned woman on their arm," Calloway said. "I didn't want the part of Imani, I wanted to be Lisa -- I had read the script and I wanted the bigger role."

Black female moviegoers shared her frustration. They wrote letters to Murphy, the movie production company, and Ebony and Jet magazines, voicing their outrage over the optics of a stunningly beautiful African woman barking like a dog onscreen. While Lisa received $500,000 diamond and ruby earrings.

Calloway ultimately accepted the part despite her disappointment.

"The real deal is, when you're in a situation like that, you wanna be a part of an Eddie Murphy movie. I wasn't gonna say no! I would've loved to have had the lead part, but I was very happy to be in the movie. I can't lie about that. I said, 'I'll make the best out of this and I'll be the best.' It was a smaller role but it was a glamorous part to play. And Shari did a great job."

Larsa Pippen (left) Googled her current boyfriend, Malik Beasley, before she met him. The 46-year-old Cougar insisted the 24-year-old NBA player and model Montana Yao were already separated before he and Pippen started knocking the boots.

"We had spoken about it. It wasn't a secret," she said on Saturday's episode of Hollywood Unlocked.

"A lot of people are not happy in their situations and they don't want to jump ship until they see someone they like," Pippen explained. "You don't want to just shake your kids up because you might never meet someone that you actually like. You’re in a state of living in the same place, but not really together."

Yao filed for divorce from the Minnesota Timberwolves player in December. They share 23-month-old son, Makai.

Yao previously accused Beasley of cheating on her with Pippen, which the former "Real Housewives of Miami" star denied.

Pippen admitted she Googled Beasley prior to dating him and said she found out "they had issues before" she met him.

"[Their breakup] had nothing to do with me, so I wasn't thinking anything about it," Pippen said. "If you spent a minute Googling their situation, it wasn't the ideal situation way before me."

The internet is buzzing that Nick Cannon impregnated Instagram model Abby de la Rosa -- and she's expecting twins.

If the rumor is true, Nick will soon be a father of six!

Abby, a DJ by trade, shared a snap of her growing belly on Instagram. She didn't name the sperm donor but the internet is convinced Nick is the father.

A Valentine's Day photo she shared featured gift balloons the same size and type as balloons Nick gifted Brittany and his current girlfriend, Lanisha Cole, according to theJasmineBrand.com.

The 40-year-old "Wild 'N Out" host is already a father of 4, including twins Monroe and Moroccan, whom he shares with pop singer Mariah Carey.

He also has a 3-year-old son, Golden, and an infant daughter with his ex, Brittany Bell.

A friend of the blog who knows Nick personally says Nick is a devout Christian who doesn't believe in abortions.

Allegedly, one of his favorite scriptures is Genesis 1:28.

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Madison LeCroy threw a subtle jab at Alex Rodriguez's fiancee, Jennifer Lopez, on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old "Southern Charm" reality star taunted the 50-year-old singer and actress by rocking a Budweiser beer t-shirt and holding a beer bottle in Instagram photos.

She captioned the photos: "King of beers."

Why is her Budweiser t-shirt significant? Because JLo's fiancé, Alex Rodriguez -- pictured with J-Lo in December -- is co-owner and chairman of the Presidente beer company, which was acquired by Anheuser-Busch in 2012.

Among Anheuser-Busch's companies is -- you guessed it -- Budweiser beer.

Anheuser-Busch announced the partnership with the former New York Yankees superstar at the company's annual Anheuser-Busch sales and marketing communications meeting in Houston in January 2020. Alex is pictured posing with cases of Presidente beer at the meeting last year.

As you know, Madison confessed to having an emotional fling with A-Rod, which never got to first base last year.

After vigorously denying the rumors, Madison finally admitted she spoke with Alex on the phone and via FaceTime'd him after communicating with each other secretly through DMs on social media.

Madison, once again, denied having a relationship with Alex in the comments section of her IG post.

"NOOOOO," she replied to someone asking about the ongoing alleged rumors.

But once a sidepiece gets her hooks into a great catch like A-Rod, she never lets go.

Beyonce shared personal photos of her 9-year-old daughter Blue Ivy and 3-year-old twins Sir and Rumi in a Valentine's Day post on social media.

The 40-year-old singer posted photos of herself dressed for a night out on the town with her husband, rapper Jay Z, 52.

Beyonce wore a red leather miniskirt (retail $990) with white button-down blouse, which she paired with a matching crystal-embellished belt (retail $506) and pearl-studded pumps.

She accessorized with Alexander McQueen's "The Story" handbag (retail $2,890) and a pair of Valentino logo sunglasses (retail $355).

As usual, the mom-of-3 and stepmom of 2 didn't caption her post - having nothing to say to her loyal fans.

Once known as the hottest chick in the game, Beyonce's body still looks good for her age. She earned high praise from some of her 165 million followers on Instagram.

"Wow BEY YOU BLESSED US," gushed one follower.

Another wrote: "PERFECTION!"

And a third fan asked Bey to hire him as her stylist.

Megan Thee Stallion is off the market. The 26-year-old Aquarius recently hooked up with rapper Pardison Fontaine, best known for his 2018 single "Backin' It Up" featuring Cardi B.

The internet was abuzz with rampant speculation that Megan and her new man are already fighting.

A viral video clip sparked rumors that Megan is involved in yet another abusive relationship.

In the video, a man is heard yelling at Megan to come out of a room. "Don't make me come through the door," he yelled. "Y'all got five seconds before I come through this sh*t!"

A few seconds later he tells someone to "tell Megan to come to the door."

According to bloggers, Megan and Pardison have only dated for a few weeks.

"It's unfortunate that some women don't see their own value. They are better off being single because they lack the discernment to find a good man who won't devalue them.

Do better, Megan.
