While talking about three marriage proposals, Lelee said,
“Yeah [I was engaged] three good times, but it’s a blessing that I didn’t marry those guys. I mean, it just wasn’t right. I don’t wanna get married for the sake of being married. I don’t want no fake wedding, no fake just-for-show marriage. I wanna actually love my husband and mean it. I’m good. I don’t have no problem meeting no man. I’ve never had that problem and I’m single by choice.”
