Brandy recently gushed about her relationship with Ryan Press on Wendy Williams and admitted that she’s in love with the producer who has to be a relative of Laz Alonzo on somebody’s side. And while the relationship is new to us, according to Star magazine, these two have been going strong for quite some time and they’re even ready to take things to the next level. Here’s what they wrote in the Jan. 23 issue:
“Will wedding bells soon ring for Brandy Norwood? She finally flaunted her hush-hush romance with music producer Ryan Presson at Las Vegas’ Cosmopolitan casino over New Year’s. And pals believe the singer, 32, has found The One. ‘They’ve been going strong for two years,’ says an insider, who replied without hesitation when asked if marriage is in the cards:’Yep!’”
Hold on, how many years? Does anyone else remember Brandy being set up on a blind date by her best friend Shay on Season 2 of “Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business,” and all the talk about being ready to get back in the dating world? She was even linked to Flo Rida in mid 2010 and said that “he’s somebody in my life, and I’m definitely interested.” We could let that go with a technicality and assume her and Laz Jr.’s relationship is coming close to a two-year anniversary and her friends just like to round up, but that would mean she had to jump straight from Flo to Ryan. We can also assume somebody has been lying, and it’s not her friends.
If Brandy is being a little sketchy about this relationship it wouldn’t be the first time. Remember that whole fake “non-traditional marriage” fiasco when she claimed to have had some sort of spiritual union with her daughter’s father, Robert Smith? Most people assumed it was to protect her innocent image at the time, now she may have been doing just the opposite to boost ratings for her reality show. There was also that whole I’m celibate, but not really controversy. I need Brandy to either tell the truth when she talks about her relationships or not say anything at all because in most cases, whenever she talks, she ends up looking ridiculous in the end.
What do you think? Is Brandy’s relationship timeline a little off or do you think she was was just claiming to date Flo Rida and other men on her show for ratings?
