Actress and singer Amber Riley ended her engagement to DeSean Black, just weeks before the pair planned to walk down the aisle, MTO News has reported.
Speaking to the Nice & Neat podcast, the Single Black Female star opened up about her relationship status and said she’s ready for a relationship.
“I am a single black woman,” she revealed. “Yes, but I’m not the crazy guy in the movies.”
That revelation was surprising, given that Amber was engaged to DeSean in 2020.
“I was single recently,” she added, noting that their breakup was amicable. “I wish you the best. I don’t have anything terrible or bad to say.”
In an Instagram post at the time of their engagement, Amber described how she showed off her relationship with Black after almost giving up on love.
“There was a time when I thought I didn’t want or deserve this kind of love. I was looking for a man who changed his mind,” she wrote in a deleted Instagram post. “My own time, love myself, be comfortable with myself, prepare me for you and prepare me for this.”
DeSean reciprocated the love on his page with a photo retweeted: “Fellas, when a woman looks at you like this, it’s a clear sign that you’re doing the right thing,” he wrote. “Now, when she gives you unconditional love you’ve never experienced, that’s another clear sign that you’ve found the person. Only a fool would let someone special like this go. So I did what any wise man would do and put a ring in it.”
