Fonzworth Bentley Quietly Engaged to 'Benjamin Button' Actress
The MTV 'From G's to Gents' reality star quietly got engaged to actress Faune Chambers at the top of the year and is finally sharing the good news with the world.
"I tricked her! She thought it would happen on Christmas, but I did it right before New Year's," Bentley, 36, told Us Magazine.
"She said yes, and I was so excited."
The 'Advance Your Swagger' author, who is best known for being Diddy's assistant and umbrella holder, proposed with a 3-carat asscher-cut diamond. Waiting to meet the newly engaged couple were their parents.
Bentley, whose real name is Derrick Watkins, proposed to his fiancé near their hometown of Atlanta.
Chambers, who co-starred in the Oscar-nominated film 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,' has also made appearances on 'The Game' and 'All of Us.'
Her next starring role is as Bentley's leading lady in the music video for his new single 'Greener.'
"It's really special to say my fiancee is in the video. I love using that word. You don't get to do it too long, so it's really special!" gushes Bentley.
The couple has plans to marry "pretty soon," and Bentley will release his long-delayed EP, 'Cool Outrageous Fingerprint,' later this summer.
