If you watched last night’s Basketball Wives LA reunion show you witnessed Brittish get (re)engaged to Baller boo, Lorenzo. Here’s the thing, the proposal from Lorenzo Gordon followed host John Salley questioning him about rumors he had been caught messing around with a model in Houston.
Back in February, news broke that Lorenzo was hooking up with a Houston model named Nini.
“They met in the lobby of a hotel in Houston, not long after he finished shooting “Basketball Wives,” a source close to the situation tells BOSSIP exclusively. “He was on his way to Argentina to play basketball but his flight had been delayed.”
According to the insider, Brittish is still unaware of the affair. “When they first met he lied and said she was just his girlfriend,” our insider dished. “After he was called out for having a tattoo on his finger he admitted they were engaged but he said he didn’t want to marry her because she wouldn’t sign a prenup and that everything was for the show.”
The source added, “To my knowledge the affair is still ongoing.”
According to Brittish, she and Lorenzo discussed the issue and while she’s not saying he’s 100% innocent, she’s deciding to stick with him. A few episodes ago Brittish and Lorenzo, who are engaged, had a commitment ceremony in France. Not a real marriage, more like a promise ring marriage. A “Here’s something cute to hold you over since I’m not really ready to settle down for real for real” ceremony. It worked. It definitely held Brittish over.
Then after Salley brought up the cheating allegations, Lorenzo got on one knee and proposed AGAIN, giving Brittish a bigger ring.
Cute ring, but I couldn’t help but think the whole thing was quite embarrassing. Why give Brittish another ring? She had a ring. Why not bring in someone to marry you guys on television? I feel like that would have been a lot more romantic than making her a Forever Fiance.
Brittish has already gone on the record as saying that she knows what comes with the territory of being with a Baller and as long as she doesn’t know about it, she’s okay. Granted, when blogs start posting about it — now you know, so now what? We know she’ll stay whether she knows or not.
This makes me wonder, is Brittish afraid of being alone or is she just a realist? Obviously she knows her man is a cheater and he clearly isn’t trying to marry her any time soon. Seems to me he’s just appeasing her with engagements for as long as she’ll let him.
