LaToya Jackson and Jeffre Phillips got engaged last June, but it seems that they quietly called off their engagement and didn’t tell anyone about it. It was initially rumored that LaToya and Jeffre got married in a secret ceremony without telling anyone, but LaToya was always insistent that she was not married. In fact, we know that LaToya Jackson and Jeffre Phillips were long-time friends and business partners, and the whole engagement thing seemed like it was coming out of left-field.
One popular theory was that LaToya was feeling left out after Janet Jackson and other members of the Jackson family were always in the news for one reason or another. Thus, she decided to cook up a fake engagement story to get the attention and spotlight refocused on her. Of course, that also means that she had to find a willing patsy, and apparently, she did. What, her business partner was going to say no?
Now, LaToya had already revealed that she wasn’t married, but some people were still focusing on her ‘engagement’ to Jeffre Phillips. But TMZ photographers managed to find the ‘couple’ leaving Mastro’s in LA last night, and Jeffre and LaToya confirmed that they were no longer engaged. In other words, they both got sick of keeping up the charade and decided that they were better off ‘friends’ and ‘business partners’. They probably also thought that people would either pay more attention their engagement or their ‘marriage’, but after a while, people just stopped caring. Even now, most people don’t even know that LaToya Jackson was engaged to begin with – that’s how much people don’t care.
