Lizzo is engaged to Myke Wright after dating for three years.

Sources say the Grammy Award-winning singer is engaged to the standup comedian, but she's not ready to confirm it just yet.

According to MTO News, Myke popped the question and Lizzo said "Yes!"

The news comes after Lizzo admitted she's in a "non-traditional" relationship with Myke.

During an appearance on The Breakfast Club, Lizzo said being in a monogamous relationship scares her. The bisexual singer prefers an open relationship.

"I think a traditional relationship [for 10 years] scares me, but love is forever. I can love somebody forever," she said.

Lizzo confirmed her relationship with Myke during an appearance on Andy Cohen's radio show "Radio Andy" on April 18.

Lizzo said she's not one to adhere strictly to rules.

"Monogamy, I think to me, is a little claustrophobic — I think because there's the rules," she said.

"I think a love relationship that's not monogamous has no rules. I think people who do poly and all that stuff — there's still rules. I don't want any rules."

But that doesn't mean I'm out here f–king and sucking and ducking," the singer explained. "It doesn't mean he is either. It just means that there are no expectations, and that way, the love gets to just be the main event."

Lizzo said Myke is a part of the "genuine" inner circle she runs in.

"Even the man I'm with, he knew me before all of this too. We were friends," she said. "It hit different when they knew you before 2019."

"We're marrying, we're totally gonna do it," Stewart said on SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show. "I wanted to be proposed to, so I think I very distinctly carved out what I wanted and she nailed it. We're marrying, it's happening."

The news of their engagement comes more than a year after Stewart told Stern she couldn't "f**king wait" to propose to the 33-year-old screenwriter. "I think good things happen fast."

The pair first met about eight years ago on a movie set, but didn't reconnect until they bumped into each other at a friend's birthday party in 2019.

Stewart began acting at age eight, after an agent saw her perform in her elementary school's Christmas play.

Last month Darius McCrary made blog headlines for all the wrong reasons. The 45-year-old "Family Matters" star went viral for kissing male-to-female trans influencer Sidney Starr at a photo shoot.

In a follow-up video, the actor vigorously denied dating Sidney.

He criticized bloggers for covering the story, and he even dragged his TV mom, Jo Marie Payton, into his mess.

At the conclusion of the video, Darius claimed he was engaged to be married, but he didn't reveal who the bride-to-be was.

According to Rhymes with Snitch, Darius is engaged to Rick James' ex-wife Tanya Hijazi. Rick met the 17-year-old party girl at a nightclub in 1989. They began dating in 1990 and their only child, son Tazman James, was born in 1993.

Trouble soon followed, and the couple was sentenced to prison for kidnapping and torturing a 24-year-old woman during a weeklong drug binge. While out on bail, the couple kidnapped and beat another woman over a 20-hour period.

Despite the red flags and warning signs, they married in 1996 and eventually divorced in 2002.

The "Cold Blooded" "Mary Jane" singer died of natural causes in 2004 at age 56.

Mother and son are pictured at Rick James' funeral in Los Angeles in 2004.

Not much is known about Tanya Hijazi. The biracial 49-year-old has worked as a small-time actress and costume designer.

She never remarried and has managed to stay out of the spotlight -- until now.

It isn't clear how she hooked up with Darius, who hasn't had much luck in the matrimony department either. He was married thrice to women who claimed he assaulted them.

Darius was also jailed in 2015 for failure to pay child support.

Good luck to the happy couple.

The Internet is buzzing over Porsha Williams' quickie engagement to Atlanta restaurateur Simon Guobadia. The 39-year-old mom-of-one is trending Twitter after she confirmed her one-month relationship with Simon in an Instagram post on Monday, May 10.

She shared a selfie with her beau on a yacht, writing:

"Our relationship began a month ago— yes we are crazy in love. I know it's fast but we are living life each day to its fullest. I choose happiness every morning and every night. Tuning out all negative energy and only focused on positive wishes. He makes me so happy and to me, that is what matters most."

According to insiders, Porsha is "crazy in love" with Simon's money and influence. She is reportedly pregnant with his 5th or 6th child.

Simon is known around Atlanta as a womanizer with at least three ex-wives (Porsha will probably be his 4th divorce). He also has a plethora of children, including two with his second wife, yoga instructor Marsha (pictured below).

Sources say Simon cheated on Marsha with his third wife, Falynn Guobadia, who recently filed for divorce due to irreconcilable differences.

Meanwhile Simon posted photos of his new love flashing her diamond engagement ring on his Instagram account.

"I asked her to marry me because we checked ALL of each other's boxes, and then some," wrote Simon, who owns a private jet and a waterfront mansion in Miami Beach.
 

Simon, 56, and Falynn announced their split last month, but Porsha added on Instagram that she had "nothing to do with their divorce filing".

She denied being a guest in Falynn's home while cheating with her man behind her back.

"Falynn and I are not friends, and Simon's divorce has been settled. Our relationship is a positive, loving step forward in everybody's lives," she added.

However, Simon and Falynn's divorce is not officially finalized, they are said to have reached a settlement.

Falynn (pictured) is said to be unbothered by her baby daddy's engagement. She keeps herself busy raising her three children by as many baby daddies.

Porsha, meanwhile, split from her fiancé Dennis McKinley - the father of her two-year-old daughter Pilar Jhena - in 2019. Dennis appeared with Porsha and Simon in an Instagram photo that set tongues wagging on Mother's Day.

Dennis is the father of Porsha's 2-year-old daughter Pilar Jhena.

Porsha Williams and Simon Guobadia, of Real Housewives of Atlanta, are off the market and engaged to be married. The happy couple made the surprise announcement in a post on Porsha's Instagram page on Monday.

Tongues were wagging on Mother's Day when Porsha posted a photo of herself flirting with Falynn Guobadia's ex-husband.

Rumors swirled all weekend that Porsha and Simon were engaged.

Then on Monday, May 10, Porsha made their engagement Instagram official by sharing a photo of herself coupled up with Simon on a yacht.

She captioned the photo:

"Our relationship began a month ago — yes we are crazy in love. I know it's fast but we are living life each day to its fullest. I choose happiness every morning and every night. Tuning out all negative energy and only focused on positive wishes. He makes me so happy and to me, that is what matters most.

For all of you that need facts, I get the optics but Simon filed for divorce from a previous marriage in January. I had nothing to do with their divorce filing. That’s between the two of them.

Falynn and I are not friends, and Simon’s divorce has been settled. Our relationship is a positive, loving step forward in everybody’s lives.

Simon and Dennis are committed to being respectful and supportive of my happiness in this situation, as well as being the best co-parents they can be to baby PJ. Two black men stepping up and being amazing people-let’s praise them!!!!

It’s truly a beautiful moment in my life & we cannot wait to spend the rest of our lives together. xoxo P #LoveWins."

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.

Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta cast members Sierra Gates and BK Brasco recently announced their engagement.

Sierra, who appeared on 3 seasons of LHHATL before being promoted to the main cast in season 9, accepted Brasco's proposal at the grand opening of his men's store, Band of Brothers, on Dec. 5.

The couple celebrated their engagement in Instagram photos snapped at maskless parties in Atlanta area nightclubs.

In an interview with MadameNoire, the couple talked about their future and their unorthodox relationship.

Sierra said that the success of their relationship is due to their decision to be celibate for a year.

"We love each other like love. A different type of love. We even took sex out of the equation for a whole year," she said, adding that God told Brasco that He would bless him if he didn't touch her for a year.

"When he told me that I was like, 'Boy, you just wanna cheat! Do what you wanna do!' And he was like, 'I really need to do this for my own mental. I really need to line myself up and I really need to be a better man for you.'"

Sierra claims it's completely normal to be celibate for a year while in a relationship.

"Honestly, I promise y'all, once we took that sex out of the equation, we found a deeper love for each other. Inseparable. We can lay next to each other. Most people like to be physical with each other. We can lay next to each other and just don't touch and be laughing, having a good time looking at movies, arguing, laughing again, cooking. Spending time with each other."
