“The Engagement Is Off”: Brandy’s Reps Confirm That She Is No Longer With Ryan Press
I can’t remember the last time that I saw Brandy and her fiance, Ryan Press, together at the same time, and at one time, they were inseparable. He wasn’t even present at her huge 35th birthday party recently, and it’s clues like that, which had many people wondering if they had gone their separate ways, and had Brandy staying mum.
Well, turns out they have. The rep for the singer and actress told Us Weekly that the couple have ended their engagement, as well as their relationship as a whole.
“They are no longer together. The engagement is off, but the friendship is still on.”
The rep also said that despite the split, Brandy still wants to get married some day, but it just won’t be with Press, a music executive.
“They decided to take a step back and reevaluate the relationship. Brandy is 35 now — that’s what her whole #35 on Twitter is about, becoming her own woman.
Brandy has a daughter and she still wants to be married and have more kids but she is working on so many other things right now. They haven’t ended things on a bad note and they still speak all the time.”
The couple announced their engagement back in December 2012, and around that time, she was on top of the world, telling PopStopTV that she almost gave up on love:
“I’m very happy. I’m definitely on Cloud 20. At one point I gave up on love, so to have this feeling and for it to be like the first time, with the person that I feel like God has created for me to be with, it feels magical. And I want it to stay like this so every married couple that we have been meeting over our vacation, I’ve been asking them, ‘So what’s the secret?’ They’ve been giving me a lot of great tips. Communication is the key, clearly, so we’ll see what this thing does.”
