Rumor has it, comedian and actor Chris Tucker is engaged to be married to an Atlanta news anchor by the name of Cynne Simpson.
According to Straight From the A, “Chris Tucker and his fiancé, Atlanta news anchor Cynne Simpson, strike a classic ‘look at my ring’ pose during the Mayor’s Masked Ball in Atlanta, which was held December 20, 2014.”
In my initial coverage of the event, I identified Simpson as Tucker’s ‘date’ and the comment section went wild with information about her identity. I also received several emails identifying Tucker’s ‘date,’ which indicated to me that SOMEBODY really wanted y’all to know about their relationship status… but I digress.
Apparently the pair have been dating for quite some time and while the ring is a clear sign of a commitment, there have even been rumors that they’re already secretly married!
The site also goes on to provide some background information about the bride-to-be.
…Simpson is a graduate of Howard University,
She is an Atlanta television news anchor. She once worked at CBS46 (2003-2007) before spending six years in D.C. at the ABC affiliate.
Simpson returned to Atlanta last year to take over Amanda Davis’ spot at Fox 5 when Davis was suspended from her position after a drunk driving incident.
Amanda Davis announced her retirement a few weeks later, clearing a permanent spot for Simpson, who now co-anchors the 5 p.m and 10 p.m. newscasts.
Simpson also has a 15 year old son, Destin, from a previous relationship.
The trio were even photographed together while taking a vacation in Puerto Vallarta last July.
And, here’s a video clip the site was also able to capture of an interview of the actor/comedian conducted by Simpson herself.
As for how long the couple have been engaged, there’s been no official word.
Congratulations to the pair.
