Chrisette Michele’s Talks Her Fiancé & “Married But Single” Stage Play
While there the songstress dished on her role in Je’Caryous Johnson’s “Married But Single” stage play.
“It’s really fun, I’m playing a girl named Lisa who is married but single,” said Chrisette. ” It’s a strange concept especially since I just got engaged and it’s something that I haven’t been through, but as we go through the circuit we’re realizing that there are a lot of people who are married but not very happy.
She’s married and her husband cheated on her and she’s so disappointed that she runs into her ex from college who she LOVED and wondered why they didn’t get married and now she’s having all these mixed emotions, which happened to me in real life.
Later she spoke candidly on her love life and broke down the story of her reconciliation with the man she’s planning to marry.
According to Chrisette who was joined during the interview by her college ex turned fiancé Doug “Biggs” Ellison, she and the love of her life made amends after YEARS of litigation over a contract.
After hundreds of thousands of dollars spent, the two eventually sat down and ironed out their legal dealings before rekindling their relationship.
“In college my boyfriend and I worked together and we got our first record deal together,” said Chrisette. “We got into the music industry and things went haywire with litigation and when litigation was over, we missed each other. Long 7 years story short we got back together.
There were things in the contract that I felt that he did wrong and I told my lawyers and they were like ‘Oh this is terrible, you’ve got to get out of this!'” said Chrisette.
I went from a lawyer to a litigator, then he [Doug] had a litigator and they went back and forth. […] We’re going through that in litigation and you weren’t even allowed to say his name in my presence, that’s how upset I was because I felt like I was spending so much on this litigation. [..]
Finally I said, ‘let’s talk about it’ and this is the first time we’re speaking in 6 years,” she added. “We walked out of the room with two signed contracts that we were both comfortable with.
After the two went their separate ways Chrisette confessed to friends that she missed her ex and eventually sent him an email sharing her feelings. His response? “I never stopped loving you.” The couple then got engaged within days.
“Seven days after that we were back in the studio, back at it, we got engaged 7 days later. I had taken a long time to heal and forgive and so did he, so we were back to where we started.”
Ain’t sweet black love, grand???
