    Americans can shadeeeee. I just got back from his Wikipedia page and here is what I got:

    McKnight currently lives in Chatsworth, California. According to Mcknight’s Instagram, he met and moved in another gold digger, Leilani Malia who he had known for s short amount of time. Even though the couple have been intimate for several years, they are not married according to McKnight ( However, according to McKnight’s Twitter page, he recently became engaged to Malia giving Malia the same ring that he placed on Mungcal’s finger during his very public proposal to her at one of his concerts in Hawaii. McKnight previously philosophical view on love was that his live interests were only moments in time where he thought he was in love. Accordingly, during this moment in time he claims that he has never been in love before until now. McKnight will insist that Malia sign a prenuptial agreement, or he will call off this wedding as he did with Mungcal.

    Brian also performed “Side Pieces” with Drake at the 2014 ESPY Awards as a tribute to all the back-ups in the shadows of the professional ballers. Seems like this tribute goes out to his new fiancé–the side piece moved up.[13]

    I had to take a screenshot for the record. Can’t stop laughing

    42 years to become a better person not to find her sir. But seriously na wa for some men o, so the first marriage na part of the experiment abi na research. It’s painful to know that someone you shared half of your life with can just forget you in a second without any consideration. All the best in the journey ahead!!!
