Love is definitely in the air this summer with tons of weddings and engagement in the celebrity world. Recently, gospel artist Donnie McClurkin confirmed that he and fellow artist Nicole C. Mullen are engaged. Donnie confirmed the news on TBN’s “Praise the Lord.” He told the audience,
Honestly, the only thing in my life that is missing is marriage. The only thing that is missing in my life that can cause real family, is marriage. Financially, I’m there. Spiritually, I’m almost there. Emotionally, I’m getting it together. But the only thing that’s missing out of everything that I’m doing locally, cross country and globally is that aspect that makes family, family — is that wife that would make man whole, that element that brings favor to man.
I have a lot of great things, but I don’t have a good thing, and there’s favor that can only come through marriage to a man.
Donnie shared that he and Nicole had known each other for 15 years, but the first time they really had a chance to talk was when they were seated next to each other on a flight to the Ivory Coast, during which they spoke for eight hours. Nicole has been married twice, while this will be Donnie’s first marriage. [Christian Post]
Update #2. Gospel artist and radio personality says that Donnie is NOT engaged. She writes on Instagram:
I hate misleading bloggers who take pieces of truth and twist it so they can get more views on their site. ChristianPost.com has done this to me quite a few times so I’m not surprised but I am very disappointed in this. Yes Pastor Donnie is in a relationship but he hasn’t made any announcement. No one should steal the joy of making a wonderful announcement like this. #REPOST #SHARE #RETRACTTHISSTORY #FALSENEWS confirmed directly from the source @donmac6453
