Malcolm-Jamal Warner and his girlfriend Regina King are not engaged to be married despite recent reports suggesting that the comedian and musician had popped the question. King herself confirmed to Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson on Monday (9th January 2011) that there are no plans for a wedding, saying, "No, we're not engaged".
39-year-old King, who did confirm that she is dating Jamal-Warner, was previously married to IAN ALEXANDER SR and the couple had a child named Ian Alexander Jr in 1996. However, the tumultuous relationship came to an end in 2006 after King filed for divorce citing, "physical abuse, drug use, and extramarital affairs" as the reason for seeking to end the marriage. Jamal-Warner dated the actress KAREN MALINA WHITE for seven and a half years but the couple never married. He also had a relationship with actress MICHELLE THOMAS who portrayed his on-screen girlfriend on 'The Cosby Show', but she died of a rare form of stomach cancer in 1998.
The National Enquirer story that reported an engagement also suggested that the couple are living in Los Angeles with King's son, quoting a source as saying, "They recently found a place together in Los Angeles and they are living as a family with her teenage son".
