No it's not "Young Gotti" ...lol! After dating an African oil tycoon for at least 2 years, reality TV star Angela Simmons is ready to make it official. The 28-year-old socialite announced her engagement on her Instagram page Tuesday.

“YES! I couldn’t be more excited,” she wrote in the caption under a video of her dazzling diamond ring. She added: “This is something I could of only dreamed of, I’m over the moon and feeling so blessed to be able to share my life with the one I truly love.”

Simmons is reportedly engaged to her daddy...no we kid..we kid! He's actually a 40-year-old oil tycoon Knowledge Katti, founder and CEO of Kunene Energy, an oil and gas drilling company based in his native Namibia.

Even though Simmons did everything right by waiting the requisite 2 years to get engaged, her African lover boy has an Instagram account.
Like most men with coins, Katti posts endless photos of his toys and material wealth on Instagram to impress the world. That’s not always a good sign.
Sources are saying that Katti travels everywhere with Simmons. He must run his oil business from his private jet?...lol!

When Doves Cry.. Prince was secretly cremated on Friday at the First Memorial Waterston Chapel in Minneapolis, Minnesota

His body was released to his sister Tyka around 1pm on Friday and brought to First Memorial Waterston Chapel

About an hour later, the cremation service began, which according to a price list, cost just $1,645. Because Prince was a Jehovah's Witness, his faith dictated that he be cremated within a week of his death.

Prince's confirmed his body has been cremated and that his final resting place will remain private. Then on Saturday, close friends and family gathered for a private memorial service at his Paisely Park home.

Hundreds of fans gathered outside to pay their own tribute to 'The Purple One' during the private service. The singer spent his final hours alone inside his vast $10million compound before collapsing inside an elevator.

Music icon, 57, was last seen entering his estate at around 8pm on Wednesday but was not found until 9.43am. Prince was taken to a Twin Cities hospital on Wednesday and was seen by a doctor, a report has revealed.

Sources said Prince overdosed on highly addictive opiate painkiller Percocet just six days before he died.

He was said to be taking the drug to help tackle chronic hip and ankle pain that he had suffered for many years  

A statement from Yvette Noel-Schure reads,

"A few hours ago, Prince was celebrated by a small group of his most beloved: family, friends and his musicians, in a private, beautiful ceremony to say a loving goodbye."
"Prince's remains have been cremated and their final storage will remain private. We ask for your blessings and prayers of comfort for his family and close friends at this time."
"The cause of death remains unknown and it will be at least four weeks before we receive the results of the autopsy. An announcement will be made at a future date for a musical celebration."
