Former “Cinderella” star Brandy won’t be seeing her fairy tale ending after all, according to recent reports of the singer’s split with beau, Ryan Press. The musician and actress reported her engagement to the multimillionaire executive in 2012, and merely two years later the couple has announced their breakup.
Brandy is no stranger to tabloid gossip after the disaster that was her brother Ray J’s publicized sex tape with the always controversial heiress, Kim Kardashian. This time around, the spotlight is on Big Sis and her split with her fiance. Brandy’s rep has spilled that the two are no longer together after the public eye spotted her without her wedding ring at her birthday party and the NAACP Image Awards show. The singer also made passive-aggressive remarks about the split during a guest appearance on VH1’s “Morning Buzz Live,” claiming that her new album will be centered on recent personal drama.
Brandy has taken to social media with the hashtag, “35”, seemingly both a reference to her age and a dig at Press. Insiders state that the star is broadcasting her maturity after her birthday and the split involved an assessment of her own independence. Reports also insist that the breakup was amicable and the two remain friends; however, neither one of them are opening up and talking publicly about the incident.
Miss Brandy has one daughter from a previous relationship that hit the rumor mill with her reported false claims of marriage during the pregnancy. The singer told reporters that Press would make a great father to her little girl at the time of their engagement. Bro Ray J had announced during the happier days of the couple that he was excited to see his sister happy with her new man.
Press has been spotted at sporting events while Brandy makes the talk show rounds to promote her new album. Reps claim that she’s still looking for the Prince Charming to her Cinderella. With a highly publicized track record of relationship drama and uncertainty, we can quote the singer’s hit song from her 1990’s glory days, “Almost Doesn’t Count.”
