[artist id="2366316"]Fonzworth Bentley[/artist], who spruced up scrappy thugs on MTV’s “From G’s to Gents,” is set to enter a new chapter in his own life.
The rapper and reality show mentor recently confirmed to Us Weekly that he is engaged to his girlfriend, actress Faune Chambers. “We are so excited!” the star exclaimed.
The swagger guru also gave up the details of his suave proposal to the magazine’s website. While he’s known for drilling gentlemanly qualities like honesty and forthrightness into his “G’s” recruits, Bentley copped to deceiving his lady love about when he would pop the question. “I tricked her! She thought it would happen on Christmas, but I did it right before New Year’s,” Bentley told Us. Apparently, the day Bentley chose to drop to one knee didn’t matter that much to Chambers as she accepted the proposal. “She said yes, and I was so excited.”
The “Everybody” rapper, who worked his way into the game as Diddy’s dapper assistant and umbrella carrier, also revealed that he added another twist to the December proposal. “Afterward, she kept wanting to call and tell her mother, and I told her not to — because then we walked into a restaurant where my parents and her parents were waiting. We all had lunch, and then I walked them all back to show them where I proposed.”
Although the star admitted that “the wedding is pretty soon,” the site didn’t report an exact date. In addition to their upcoming nuptials, the lovebirds have also collaborated professionally. Chambers stars in Bentley’s latest video for Bentley’s latest video for “Greener”. “It’s really special to say, ‘My fiancée is in the video,’ ” Bentley said. “I love using that word.”
