“Nobody knew, cause we didn’t discuss being married, we didn’t discuss it. I was just giving her, every so often I give her a tribute. Everybody took it, and I’m like listen .. I was going to film the pre-packages for maybe Soul Train awards or something, with Tisha Campbell, produced by Jesse Collins. Amazing like I said, and I’m like …So I just posted something, cuz I was in the back of the car,” he continued to explain.

“I was on the way to the Palms Hotel. And I’m just, I’m taping stuff, and so what happens is I get the call from Queen Donaldson telling me ‘Are you okay?’ Why are you asking me am I okay? ‘Are you alright?’ And I’m like yeah, I’m fine, I’m going to film, we’re doing the opening packages for Soul Train Awards.”
