Rapper The Game To Wed Actress
In a recent edition of Sister 2 Sister magazine, the rapper confirmed rumors that he was engaged. He also revealed that he gave Butterfield a 19-carat engagement ring.
The two have selected March 22, 2007 to be wed, the date being the anniversary of his proposal to Butterfield, who has small roles in Remember The Titans and Road Trip.
"I was just as surprised as my family and everybody was," Butterfield told Sister 2 Sister when The Game proposed. "I didn't pass out, but I buckled and he caught me. We never dated, that's the thing; we went from being friends to being engaged."
Lil' Jon, Hilary Duff and others were present at a private engagement dinner that was held in California to celebrate to couple's union.
Butterfield is also the daughter of North Carolina Congressman GK Butterfield, who reportedly gave the gangster rapper "the third degree" upon their first meeting.
Fans of the rapper can see him on the silver screen as "Big Meat" in the movie Waist Deep, which opened yesterday (June 23) and stars R&B singer/rapper/actor Tyrese Gibson Meagan Good and Larenz Tate.
