Singer Chilli appears to be unfazed by her ex-boyfriend Usher’s recent claims that she rejected his marriage proposal years ago.

Rather than make Usher’s story distract her, Chili is currently vacationing in Jamaica with her boyfriend, actor Matthew Lawrence, to celebrate his 44th birthday. The couple was spotted cuddling, laughing, and kissing during their tropical getaway, showcasing their strong bond.

Chili unfazed by revelation of failed proposal

Usher recently revealed to People that he was heartbroken when Chilli turned down his proposal while they were dating in the early 2000s, damaging his ability to trust women.

However, TMZ reports close sources saying that Chili takes relationships and marriage seriously and will not rush into commitments unless she is completely ready. She simply did not feel Usher was the right partner for her at the time.

Chilli has been dating Lawrence for a couple of years now and has previously expressed her desire to marry him someday, although they are not yet engaged.

Despite Usher airing their old breakup, Chilli appears focused on her future with Lawrence rather than the past.
