R&B singer Jamelia is wearing an enormous engagement ring and making plans for her wedding to footballer Darren Byfield next year, the man who she previously dump. There was speculation that their relationship stalled over allegations that Darren, the father of her youngest daughter, Tiani, had cheated on her. But the 27-year-old Jamelia told Fabulous magazine âIt never happened, and it was certainly not the reason for the split.â “I know he never cheated on me. He wouldnât. Itâs just sad that there are desperate women out there whose mission in life is to sleep with a footballer. âWeâd got to the stage in our relationship where nothing was terribly wrong but I still had questions. “I needed to end the relationship to find out what it would mean to be without Darren.â âInitially he rang me every day begging me to get back together with him. I just kept saying: âNoâ, that I needed time and space, but he kept on and on.â “Then he stopped calling me.â Three days passed and I didnât hear from him. I panicked. I suddenly had a vision of my life without Darren. “I had to confront the idea that he was gone and that was it. Then I realized I could never be with anyone else and I would never find another man like him.â âWhen he did call, we were back on â and this time itâs forever.â The marriage proposal came in October when Darren popped the question in front of friends and family at his 31st birthday party.
