Ciara Confirms Relationship With Amar’e Stoudemire

HipHollywood.com caught up with Ciara yesterday to conduct a brief interview where the singer revealed that yes she is in fact dating Knicks player Amar’e Stoudemire.

Just interviewed Ciara and she admitted that she and Amare are indeed a couple. She was very shy about it and said “you know I don’t talk about my personal life” but when I pushed she shook her head laughed and said yes they are a couple. She added that this is a very happy time in her life and that she is really enjoying herself! She and Amare were snapped at a party after the Met Gala last night.

The news come shortly after the couple were spotted at several events together as of late. I guess she thought we’d all find out eventually so why lie. The couple were most recently spotted leaving a MET Gala after party (above).

So happy for Ciara! Last time she allegedly dated someone was 50 cent back in 2008, though it was never actually confirmed. Do ya’ll remember Bow Wow?! This is such an upgrade. I wish them the best.
