Michelle Williams got a lot of attention this year when she announced her engagement to Chad Johnson, a white guy who works as a life coach. The engagement got the full People Magazine treatment, almost like they were inviting us to have an opinion on their lives. Then they put themselves out there even more, when they decided to put their love on display in an OWN reality show called Chad Loves Michelle. Shenanigans ensued, when cameras rolled on Chad using Michelle’s mental health struggles against her in arguments, and when he seemed particularly insensitive during any kind of conversation about race. So… long story short, Chad and Michelle are no longer engaged.
Michelle Williams has revealed that her engagement to pastor Chad Johnson is off. The 38-year-old Destiny’s Child singer made the announcement in a since-deleted Instagram Story post on Friday morning — the same day she dropped her latest single, “Fearless.”
“I still remain fearless,” she wrote in simple white text on a black background. “I guess I still remain single! Things didn’t work out. The healing that needs to take place is a must! I don’t wanna destroy another relationship. Blessings to him, his family and ministry. #FEARLESS”
Reps for Williams didn’t immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment. Williams and Johnson, 40, announced their engagement exclusively to PEOPLE in April. The couple met in March 2017 at an Arizona spiritual retreat run by Johnson, a life coach who has also worked as a chaplain for pro sports teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and L.A. Dodgers.
I’m not going to pretend to stan to Michelle, but I’ve always liked her and wished her well, and I’m actually pretty happy that she and Chad ended things before they were legally tied to each other. I feel like Michelle has had a difficult couple years, and maybe she convinced herself that Chad was her “happy ending,” the light at the end of the tunnel. But it didn’t work out, and so be it. I hope she takes some time to mourn the relationship and then finds someone really nice, someone who won’t throw off red flags in the middle of a reality show.
