Michelle Williams and her ex-fiancé Chad Johnson have reunited, and are a couple again. It's not clear yet whether the two still plan on getting married - but they're definitely dating again.

The two were spotted boo'd up at the Kentucky Derby yesterday. The pair were trying to keep their reunion private, but their friend R&B singer Amerie accidentally spilled the tea on her Instagram Live.



Michelle announced on Instagram Live in December that she and Chad were ending their engagement, and separating.

The 38-year-old Destiny’s Child singer made the announcement in a since-deleted Instagram Story. At the time, Michelle didn't explain why the two decided to end things.

The couple met in March 2017 at an Arizona spiritual retreat run by Johnson, a life coach who has also worked as a chaplain for pro sports teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and L.A. Dodgers.

“I was in a horrible, dark place,” Williams previously told People Magazine. “I just needed to go somewhere where I could get a message of hope and restoration, rejuvenation — get connected to God.” They immediately bonded over their Christian faith, and Chad proposed a year later.

“I was so shocked! I was weeping and wailing,” Williams said during an interview with Good Morning America at the time. “He proposed to me in Pebble Beach at this beautiful resort and I was crying so loud that people were turning around, going back to their rooms and stuff, they weren’t coming to the restaurant because they were like, ‘Did she just find out something he did bad? What happened?'” she added.
