We can hear wedding bells around the corner for La Toya Jackson and her new finance Jeffré Phillips! The 58-year-old is officially engaged to her best friend and manager.
She broke the news on Good Morning America saying, “Yes, I’m very much engaged…and it’s wonderful!” Let’s not forget about the 17.5 carat diamond ring she showed off as well. Her finance clearly knows that diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
Jackson’s reality show ‘Life With La Toya‘ is airing on the Oprah Winfrey Network and in the upcoming season you can watch Phillips ask Jackson’s father, Joe Jackson, permission for his daughter’s hand in marriage. Phillips proposed on a Hawaiian vacation in August.
In 1989, Jackson married her manager Jack Gordon and they stayed together for seven years. She has alleged that Gordon would physically abuse her and after years of suffering she finally escaped. On her show she tells long time friend Kathy Hilton, “After my ex I couldn’t trust anybody.”
There is no official wedding date set, but Jackson is thinking about adopting and the future stating, “I’ve always wanted to be a mother all my life.” She definitely has to live up to the creative names of her brother, Michael Jackson‘s children.
Watch Jackson flash her engagement ring on Life with Latoya this Saturday, June 7, at 10 p.m.
