Kelly Rowland put the rumors of her engagement to rest on The Queen Latifah Show.

Rowland revealed during an interview with Queen Latifah that she’s engaged to her manager Tim Witherspoon. The X Factor judge get all the details during Monday’s taping that is scheduled to air on Wednesday.

“We’ve kept it very, very low — for years, to be completely honest,” Rowland told Latifah. The 32-year old said that Witherspoon first asked to marry her while she was in Bulgaria without him.

“It happened on Skype. It actually happened on Skype,” Rowland said. “He asked me first on Skype. And I was like, ‘We’re so far away from each other!’ I was in like Bulgaria or somewhere. It was so late. I remember we were both like, just staring at each other. And he asked me. And it was just that simple to say ‘yes.’ I was like, ‘I got my best friend. I have my best friend to ride through life with,’ and… he really is my best friend.’”

Earlier this year, rumors regarding her relationship status began to fly when she was spotted wearing a massive diamond ring on her left hand.
