'X Factor' judge Kelly Rowland got engaged to Tim Witherspoon via Skype

By Gina DiFalco,

Kelly Rowland reveals she got engaged to her manager turned fiancé, Tim Witherspoon, via Skype. She explained during an appearance on The Queen Latifah Show that he proposed while she was in Bulgaria.

“He put a ring on it," she told Latifah, referring to her former Destiny’s Child group member Beyonce’s song “Single Ladies.”

Rowland added, "It's been a while. We've kept it very, very low—for years, to be completely honest,” E! Online reports. The interview will air on Wednesday.

Latifah told the X Factor judge she wanted to clear the air because “all my boys got crushes on you.”

"He asked me first on Skype," she laughed, adding, "and I was like, 'We're so far away from each other.'"

When Latifah joked it was probably the “happiest thing that happened in Bulgaria that day,” Rowland agreed and continued, “I remember we were both just kinda like, honestly, just staring at each other. And he asked me, and it was just that simple to say yes. I was like, 'I got my best friend to ride through life with.' He really is my best friend."

Rowland, who co-judges on X Factor with Paulina Rubio, Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell, has been wearing an engagement ring since last month.
