Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennett are engaged…or are they? The star athlete cleared the air in a Nov. 29 interview, insisting that he and Kasi are NOT getting married — and that the famous ‘she said yes’ Snapchat was actually doctored. WATCH!
Usain Bolt, 30, is not engaged to Kasi Bennett — he said so himself! WATCH him debunk the rumors in this new interview on ITV’s Lorraine below:
“I’m not engaged! This story. Let me tell you exactly what happened. Me and my girlfriend went on a trip to Bora Bora,” Usain explained, referring to their September getaway. “We took a picture and somebody edited it on my Snapchat and said, ‘she said yes,’ with a ring. It was well done, though,” he added. There you have it!
As the story goes, a Snapchat of Kasi relaxing in Bora Bora surfaced on Sept. 5 with the caption, “she said yes,” along with a bride and heart emoji. Now we know the truth, though — it was just a great Photoshop job!
Usain also admitted that his family has been urging him to “settle down” and have kids. “My mum’s pressuring me,” he said. Aw!
Meanwhile, Usain left any potential girlfriends at home and partied up a storm with pop music royalty after the London premiere of his movie I Am Bolt on Nov. 28. He took selfies and Snapchats with Justin Bieber, 22, and Liam Payne, 23, who were equally thrilled to be hanging out with the Fastest Man in the World! “Good meeting you. Great guy right here,” JB tweeted later, linking to a pic he and Usain had taken together. Love this bromance!
