While people still talk about that other marriage Eric Benet had with a certain Hollywood starlet (ahem, Halle Berry), the R&B crooner has clearly moved on with his life, and found new love. Benet, 44, recently proposed to his girlfriend of three years, Manuela Testolini, reports Us Magazine. “They are engaged and very happy,” a rep told Us Magazine.
Benet is still best remembered for his three-year marriage to Berry, which ended when he cheated. Years later, Berry maintains that she will never marry again, while Benet wonders why the world can’t move on. “People have associated me with this one big relationship in my life,” he told ESSENCE.com recently. “I’ve had a few equally important relationships in my life.” Testolini’s other big relationship was her five-year marriage to Prince.
Here’s to new beginnings. Congrats to the beautiful couple!
