The long-awaited and much-hyped wedding of rap superstar Gucci Mane to longtime girlfriend and Jamaican-born model Keyshia Ka’oir takes place tonight–and its all gonna go down LIVE on BET at 10PM.
The wedding takes place just short of a year from the day last November when Gucci pulled out a wedding rock–a 25 carat monster estimated to be worth half a mil–and proposed to Keyshia court side at an Atlanta Hawks basketball game.
A ton of celebrities are expected to attend the wedding which, hopefully, goes smoothly because you know anything at all can happen on live television.
Keyshia held Gucci down while he went through a series of bizarre incidents and arrests, and also rode for him while he completed a state prison sentence.
And after more than 7 years together (the couple met at one of the rapper’s video shoots), the couple has encountered their share of haters as well.
Fans on social media accused Gucci of being a paymaster after he dropped a verse on a song with Kanye West in which Gucci said that he’d given Keyshia a truckload of cash while he was locked down:
“I don’t really f–k around / I gave my bitch $2 mil’ ’cause she stuck around,” Mane rapped on the track.–“Champions” track
The couple says Gucci merely “invested” in Keyshia’s cosmetic line.
“He did not pay me to be faithful. That is just dumb,” she told The New York Post. “Gucci is not that type of a man.”
Keyshia’s cosmetic line went on to net $6 million.
The couple’s live wedding has been marketed as a BET special. The network reportedly forked over millions for the festivities. That’s on top of the fat check the couple are getting for participating in their own reality show on the network as well.
Congratulations to Gucci Mane and ZKeyshia Ka’oir!
