Brandy Ends Engagement to Ryan Press
We hope you didn’t have your heart set on seeing Brandy on an upcoming episode of Bridezellas…
The ’90s R&B princess has called off her engagement to music executive Ryan Press. A rep for the singer/actress confirmed the rumored split on Tuesday, but says the former couple remain on amicable terms.
Spoken like a true publicist.
“They are no longer together. The engagement is off, but the friendship is still on. 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 seemed to hint at a parting of the ways during an appearance on VH1 Morning Buzz Live last week. She appeared sans engagement sparkler and chatted with host Nick Lachey about putting the finishing touches on a revealing new album.
“It’s going to be a very personal album for me. This album is just special for the whole therapy thing. I sing about my life and a lot of the things that I’ve been going through lately…I’m going to be hollering a lot on this album.”
Ryan and Brandy announced their wedding plans back in December 2012. The marriage would have been the first for the one-time Moesha actress. You may recall, however, that Brandy publicly pretended to be married to ex-boyfriend Robert Smith after the birth of their daughter Sy’rai, now 11. Smith later revealed that the presumed marriage had been a sham to protect Brandy’s good girl image.
