Eric Benet Gets ENGAGED To Prince's Ex, Drops New Video!

Halle Berry's ex-hubby and r&b singer, Eric Benet, is about to jump the broom again....with Prince's ex-wife, Manuela Testolini.  The two have been dating for 3 years, and Eric decided to pop the question over the Holidays.

 

Deets on their engagement, plus behind the scenes of Eric's new vid, when you read on...

Looks like November was a big month for more than just Monica and Shannon Brown.  44-year-old Eric Benet popped the question to his fab girlfriend.

"During a romantic dinner, I decided to finally let Manuela hear 'Never Want to Live Without You," a song off my new album that I had written for her," Benet tells UsMagazine.com. "I sang it to her, then got down on one knee and proposed."

Sweet.  They've reportedly set a summer wedding.

BONUS: Eric Benet takes viewers behind the scenes of his "wedding" for his brand new video for "Never Want to Live Without You." Check it.

Sorry to say it, but judging

Sorry to say it, but judging by the body language in these pics Eric is "just not that into Manuela." He looks like he only loves himself. Be careful girl.

There's just something about

There's just something about celebrities going behind another celeb in the dating game. Creepy and kinda gay, imo. Very weird. And i'm sure with this being Prince's ex, that it played a part in him dating her, being that he's an obvious fan.

Eric is GAY......and she

Eric is GAY......and she knows it!! He no longer wants to be with a woman who does not accept his addiction......she was married to Prince (who is not gay) so she has been exposed to "EVERYTHING"....I MEAN EVERYTHING....... Halle...found out he was packing fudge and she fired his ass.....

I hope he doesnt break her

I hope he doesnt break her heart. Prince seemed to have already done a number on his ex-wives. I heard he could be pretty nasty when hes thru with his women. Be good, Eric. Be smart, Manuela! Good luck and God bless to you both!

If Eric is a true sex addict,

If Eric is a true sex addict, this will be a bumpy ride for both. It is an addiction that can be worse than alcohol or drugs. After 3 years, I hope Manuela knows how complex is for a marriage. Good luck and you have my prayers.

I hope they're happy

I hope they're happy together. I remember, though, that the serenade hasn't worked out so well for him. Remember when he sang "Spend My Life With You" to Halle at a live show? We see how that went....Maybe the second go-round will work out better.
n_satiable's picture

You remind me of that

You remind me of that awkwards situation at family events, where one guy everyone has great things to say about how good he looks, and then one person has to bring up "Yeah, he came back from the drugs really well." It sounds like a compliment, but really it's that person trying to remind everyone the guy wasn't shit at one point and not to forget it.

I don't know what went on in

I don't know what went on in their relationship, but I think there was a lot more than was reported in the media. Do I think he may have messed up? Yeah, because HE said he did (he admitted to an addiction, but never to actually cheating on her)...but I think that Halle also played a part in the downfall of their relationship (particularly considering what seem to be ongoing reports about her unrealistic behavior). They're flawed people, just like everyone else. My point was -- and is -- that he is putting his private life on display again, and is showing the same gestures that he did years ago. Things might go better if he takes a more low-key approach this time. It seems like in Hollywood, the most successful couples are those who keep their private lives private, particularly with him being in the midst of a career comeback.

I hope he takes this marriage

I hope he takes this marriage more serious than the first. I like Eric, he's very talented and seems to be a great father. I think he made a mistake the 1st time around. He and Manuela seem to be in love.
