La Toya Jackson: Engaged to Business Partner Jeffré Phillips!

La Toya Jackson is officially engaged to her boyfriend and longtime business partner Jeffré Phillips!

“It wasn’t a fast yes,” the 58-year-old singer and television personality, as well as sister to the late Michael Jackson, told People.

He proposed on vacation in Hawaii, where they dined on a romantic dinner of her favorite foods, including some chicken soup, and hid a 17.5 carat diamond ring under some desserts.

“I was in total shock,” La Toya, who stars on Life with La Toya, said. “We’re best friends and we’ve been business partners forever. It was always professional – no one really crossed those boundaries.”

Congrats to the happy couple! Catch Life with La Toya, which returns this Saturday, June 7 at 10 pm EST on OWN.

    Not many people realize that after Janet, financially speaking, LaToya is the next “living” Jackson kid with actual money in the bank. Now she’s not rolling in it hand over fist like Janet BUT, she IS comfortable and she earned it. She’s a pretty good business person if you ever watch her show on O (her show is a guilty pleasure sometimes). Her new fiancé is not hurting either and so this isn’t some user looking to get rich off her. I think they make the perfect (if not a bit weird) pairing.
