Soul star Angie Stone insists she's the one who moulded D'ANGELO into the super-stylish and confident singer he is today.
Stone reveals D'Angelo had no fashion sense when they first started dating in the mid-90s, and he had little faith in his musical abilities either.
She tells Essence magazine, "When I was dating him he wore glasses, had short hair and his pants were hanging down to his butt. He was just a 19-year-old kid with big shorts and nobody cared and no one saw his beauty but me.
"And I told him, 'You are beautiful. I promise you when your record drops your lips are gonna become famous, your eyes - everything will become famous.' But he couldn't see it because his self-esteem wasn't where it is today."
