Jodeci - Blige Hurt By Ex-fiance's Tv Snub

R&B star Mary J. Blige is still sore about the break-up of her engagement to Jodeci star K-Ci Hailey 15 years ago - because she found out on a British TV show that he had no intention of marrying her.
The I'm Going Down singer was left devastated and red-faced when she appeared on late night show The Word and showed off her engagement ring - only to be told her fiance had been on the same show two weeks earlier and had denied the engagement story.
Recalling the awful TV moment in a new Vh1 Behind The Music special, which aired in the U.S. on Sunday (24Jul11), Blige stated, "I was on some TV show saying that I was engaged and showing off my ring (and) the host pulls up the tape and says, 'This is what he said'."
Asked for a comment after the footage was shown to her, Blige simply asked the host to "move on", insisting, "We're not getting married now."
Looking back on the incident, Blige, who is now married to producer Kendu Isaacs, says, "You don't ask a woman to marry you if that's not what you want. I was young and I was in love. That hurt me."
