Gabby has had 4 serious relationships, and her relationship with Christopher is her fifth. “I think the fifth time is the charm,” Gabby admits. She is head over heels in love with Chris. “Christopher is so different. I don’t know how to explain it. He’s so perfect,” she gushes.

Chris has told Gabby that he wants to get married “right away” after he gets out of prison. Gabby wants to give it a little bit of time so she can plan the perfect day for them.

Gabby, Sharon, and Gabby’s godfather head to the venue. It’s very “bougie,” just like Gabby wants. The cost starts at around $230 per person for a Saturday wedding. “How are you going to pay for this?” Sharon asks. Gabby has an answer for that.

“Chris has settlement money,” Gabby explains. “The guards, like, they like beat him really bad or whatever so he sued them, and they gave him a settlement. It was, like, close to like $150,000.”

Gabby and Chris met through Gabrielle’s cousin’s incarcerated boyfriend, and after quickly falling for one another, Chris decided to shower Gabrielle with the finer things — including a house, a BMW, and a $5000 engagement ring. However, Chris’ family is worried she may be using him for his money. Chris’ family has plans to confront Gabrielle and her intentions. Meanwhile, Gabrielle’s family also have doubts of their own, especially her mother, who calls Gabby a “maneater” because of many failed engagements. Love During Lockup will air Fridays at 9 p.m. on WE tv.
