Former Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams, 37, is engaged. Michelle recently got engaged to her man Pastor Chad Johnson,40, whom she has been dating for over a year. The couple who spoke with PEOPLE opened up on their love story. Michelle said; “We could not contain this any longer!” The couple met back in March 2017 after attending a retreat. Michelle who had just broken up with a cheating ex said; “I was in a horrible, dark place. “I just needed to go somewhere where I could get a message of hope and restoration, rejuvenation — get connected to God.” Chad continued saying; “When we met, both of us were in very similar places on a personal level. Michelle was coming off the heels of a really bad relationship, and I was just in a place of despair as well. I tried to roll in with some mac daddy game — and I tried to flirt a little bit and said something like, ‘How about you and I connect sometime?’ And right away, she texted right back with one word and six question marks behind it: ‘Connect??????. I thought she had dissed me. So I was embarrassed, and I didn’t reach back out to her because I thought I’d ruined the friendship.” The rest is history today.
