Ari & Married At First Sight Star, Keith, A Thing? A "Spinoff" We Didn't Know We Needed!
Ari Lennox has been vocal about being unlucky in love, but it appears she’s finally found a man worth posting about.
On Thursday (June 2), the Shea Butter Baby songstress snapped herself boo’d up with a mystery man on her Instagram Stories. In one photo, Lennox poses with her date inside a restaurant during a friend’s wedding in San Diego, while another flick shows the couple cozying up together on a couch.
While Ari Lennox didn’t tag her bae’s Instagram handle, it didn’t take long for internet detectives to reveal the man’s identity. According to TMZ, Lennox’s new flame is Keith Manley II from the reality TV series Married At First Sight.
Manley, a 30-year-old mentorship program director from Charlotte, North Carolina, appeared in season nine of the dating show in 2019. He wed fellow contestant Iris Caldwell, but their union was short-lived.
Ari Lennox opened up about her romantic struggles last year, revealing most of the men she meets are turned off by her huge dog, an Akita named Galactus.
“I’m bored!” the Dreamville signee said during an appearance on Essence‘s If Not For My Girls. “Or I’ll find someone incredibly interesting and then like, the sex is terrible. And I’m sorry, but that’s important. Or you’re scared of my dog! Like, grow up! He’s the sweetest thing.”
Needless to say, Ari Lennox’s fans were thrilled to hear the news. Check out a clip from the Married At First Sight reunion and some of the fan reactions to the love rumors below.
