On Instagram Live, Beenie Man also spoke about his decision to get engaged to Camille ‘Lee’ McIntosh.
“Life is a beautiful thing and if you love a woman and you don’t put a ring on it, that mean you never make none sense, yuh zeet. I put a ring on her not an ‘it’, she is not an ‘it’ she’s a her,” he said.
The artiste appeared happy and intoxicated while making the statement. However, his fans also took him to task over the statement. “So him only ever love 2 woman,” one commented. “Congratulations my son, you realize now that you want to settle down and that’s just it. Wishing you all the best my son,” another person said. “Stop contradicting yourself sir, with all the baby mamas you have and talking like this. It’s kind of disturbing,” another person said.
The artiste popped the big question to Lee on Thursday night in a simple engagement ceremony where he put the ring on her finger, and the two shared a kiss.
The couple have been dating since 2021, and Beenie Man revealed that they have known each other for 23 years. Lee also said in a past interview that she had known Beenie Man since childhood, as they grew up in the same town.
