It's going to be 'The Mane Event'
Gucci Mane found true love when he hired Keyshia Ka’oir to work on his video seven years ago. We don’t know why it took him so long to propose to her, but their wedding day is quickly approaching now. Keyshia is totally spilling all the tea on her wedding already, and we’ve got it for you here!
Kayshia and Gucci have got a love story for the ages, and it all began in a jail cell where Gucci lived alone. Keyshia explained how they got together, “In 2010, Gucci was in jail in Fulton County, and I was the XXL ‘Eye Candy of the Year.’ When you’re in jail, you get these magazines with the sexy models, so he got the magazine, too. I had already been in Timbaland’s ‘Say Something’ video and Gucci had seen the video. He called [his manager] Amina from jail, and he was like, ‘Who is Keyshia Ka’oir? I want to meet this girl.’ He was like, ‘I’m getting out soon, I need her for my next video, you have to find her!'”
“A day or two later, I got a call. Amina was like, ‘I work with Gucci, he wants you to —’ and I’m like, ‘Whatever.’ Because I don’t even want to be around rappers. But Gucci kept asking, and eventually I agreed. When he got out of jail, they flew me to Atlanta right away to do the ‘911 Emergency’ video. That’s the day we met. He was in love with me on sight,” she said.
Things have been going well for them ever since — even though Gucci has been in and out of jail. He was loving the fact that he had a good woman at home waiting for him, and he knew that it was time to make it forever with her. He proposed to her at an Atlanta Hawks game in November 2016. The couple was spotted on the Kiss Cam, but instead of just kissing her, he whipped out a rock and asked her to marry him.
Soon enough, Keyshia will walk down the aisle to Gucci, and you can watch it all on BET as the couple agreed to let their wedding and all of the events leading up to it be filmed by the network. They’re getting an impressive chunk of change out of it, too: $650,000. Gucci gets $400,000 and Keyshia gets $250,000.
BET will also be picking up the bill for the million-dollar affair which will host 200 guests in Miami at the Four Seasons on October 17 at 10:17 AM. The repetitive numbers are an homage to his record label. Keyshia said about their big day, “I met Gucci on set. He charmed me with the way he treated me. I saw something in him that no one did. He proposed and I said yes. My wedding will be over-the-top fabulous. Think of royalty, love. It will be a diamond-flooded wedding for both of us.”
While we won’t be receiving an invitation, we know that the pair dropped about $50,000 just for their invites. The mirrored booklets engraved with the details and covered in Swarovski crystals cost up to $1,000 each. It’s believed that guests like Drake, Rihanna, The Weeknd, Selena Gomez, Pharrell, Diddy, Rick Ross, Monica, Trina, Migos, and Solange got the best ones.
Keyshia is ready to be a wife to Gucci. She said, “We really have a very loving, honest relationship. Nothing is for the media, nothing is fabricated. We’re two people that have been together for about eight years and have been through so much. We’re willing to move on and move past what we’ve been through and just look forward to what we have for our future, and to just be happy.”
