Lamine Diop Confirms Issa Rae’s Engaged

Issa Rae’s engagement has been confirmed by someone who SURELY knows her better than the rest of us.

Remember when we told you about Issa’s (panty melting) little brother Lamine “Enimal” Diop???

Welllll, Lamine attended the Los Angeles premiere of Issa’s new film “Little” and while there, he spoke openly on the shiny ring on his sister’s left hand.

According to Lamine, Issa’s indeed engaged and he fully supports his brother-in-law to be.

“He’s just a good guy, man. He’s just a cool guy,” Lamine told Us Weekly about Issa’s fiance Louis Diame. “They’ve been dating forever. He’s already been like a brother to me. Family ties at all the family events and dinners, Christmas, Thanksgiving.”

The rapper also told Us Weekly that couple hasn’t had time for an engagement party, so “we’re just going to celebrate once it’s time for the ceremony” and even added that Louis proposed during the holiday season.

“They did it around the holidays,” he told Us of Diame’s proposal. “She’s so low-key too — for real! I found out, like, a couple days later, so we’re just gonna let her lead the way.”

(Soooooo, what you’re saying Mr. Panty Melter sir, is that we’re super late? Oh, okay.)

He also added that a wedding date hasn’t been set because of Issa’s busy schedule.

“We celebrate all her accolades,” he raved. “They keep rolling in and we’re trying to keep up!”

Well, that’s a lot of info from yet another person not named Issa Rae.

Yvonne Orji and Jay Ellis confirmed during the NAACP Image Awards that Issa’s indeed off the market—and Issa added on her Instastory that she “didn’t announce s***.”

Issa may never confirm this engagement herself, but it’s pretty clear from all the wagging tongues and that solitaire diamond that she’s a bride to be.

Good for you Issa, call BOSSIP (and absolutely no one else) when you’re ready to talk!
