Brandy has lots to celebrate now that she’s made her Broadway debut as Roxie Hart in the musical, Chicago. But during a recent promo stop at the “Wendy Williams Show,” Brandy explained how this high point in her life comes on the heels of a devastating period when she ended her high-profile engagement to Ryan Press in April 2014. Now, she’s explaining why she decided to call it quits on their relationship.
According to Brandy, not only was the breakup hard for her, but it was also hard for her young daughter, Sy’Rai.
“It was not a good time for me, and it was not a good time for her [daughter, Sy’rai]. We were a family, when something like that happens it doesn’t feel good,” Brandy said.
Williams then asked Brandy, point blank, “How come the engagement was broken off, what did you do?”
”It’s not what I did, it’s what we both did. We just grew in different directions,” Brandy shard. “We’re still friends. I still have a lot of love for him. There [are] no hard feelings, that’s what I’m saying.”
And when asked if she’s back to dating, Brandy emphatically replied no.
“Oh I don’t, I can’t be messing around with no men. I have to stay focused, darling. I have to keep my mind set on what I’m doing. I have a dream!” Brandy said.
