Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennett are engaged…or are they?
The star athlete cleared the air in a Nov. 29 interview, insisting that he and Kasi are NOT getting married — and that the famous ‘she said yes’ Snapchat was actually doctored.
“I’m not engaged! This story. Let me tell you exactly what happened. Me and my girlfriend went on a trip to Bora Bora,” Usain explained, referring to their September getaway. “We took a picture and somebody edited it on my Snapchat and said, ‘she said yes,’ with a ring. It was well done, though,” he added. !
As the story goes, a Snapchat of Kasi relaxing in Bora Bora surfaced on Sept. 5 with the caption, “she said yes,” along with a bride and heart emoji.
Usain also admitted that his family has been urging him to “settle down” and have kids. “My mum’s pressuring me,” he said. Aw!
Meanwhile, Usain left any potential girlfriends at home and partied up a storm with pop music royalty after the London premiere of his movie I Am Bolt on Nov. 28.
He took selfies and Snapchats with Justin Bieber, 22, and Liam Payne, 23, who were equally thrilled to be hanging out with the Fastest Man in the World! “Good meeting you. Great guy right here,” JB tweeted later, linking to a pic he and Usain had taken together. Liam Payne was not accompanied by his pregnant wife Cheryl who had to attend some charity event that day.
Not bad for the first Third World athlete with a pay cheque of $32 million to nobnob with young princes of sworld howbiz.
