The opulence extends outside the ceremony
Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir are getting married today (Oct. 17), but they began the celebration a while ago. The couple posted videos of themselves exchanging gifts prior to their wedding and, if you weren’t Team Guwop before, you will be by the time you finish this clip.
It starts with Keyshia giving Gucci a set of matching necklaces that have their names on it. While Mane is ecstatic, you can tell he has something else on his mind… The trick up his sleeve is quickly revealed when the pair step outside to reveal Gucci’s his and hers gift for his soon-to-be wife.
The rapper bought himself and his wife matching Rolls Royce Wraiths. Keyshia’s is blue with matching blue and cream interior; Gucci’s is a showy red.
“His and Hers Guwop bought his wife a Wraith!” wrote Keyshia on her Instagram.
Everything about the pair has the ring of a fairy tale, right down to the whole “first sight” thing. Keyshia explained to The Fader that the pair first met because Gucci saw her in a magazine he received while in jail.
“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.”
Even the bit where things got real between the two of them has an old-timey and odd feel to it.
“I fell in love with Gucci when I bathed him,” Keyshia admitted. “I put him in a shower and just bathed him. I just did things to him and he looked at me and said, ‘Wow, no one has ever bathed me before.’ I am a traditional Jamaican lady, that is what you do. You take care of your man.”
Not all of the news out of the Gucciverse has been positive, however. His former manager Deb Atney has been raising a fuss over what she sees as falsehoods in his new autobiography. She also accused Gucci of not writing the book in a recent interview.
“The next thing I’m gonna tell you is that Gucci didn’t write that book in its entirety because half of the book is false,” she said. “So if anybody know the history of where we all were, pay attention. He already tells you who he is in the book. That’s it.”
