For many, Russell Wilson and Ciara are #relationshipgoals. But before the two became an item, Ciara and Bow Wow were.

In fact, they were reportedly engaged to be married. And according to BET, the “Let Me Hold You Down” entertainer reminisced on his time with the “Like A Boy” singer.

In the latest episode of Growing Up Hip Hop, Bow Wow disclosed that he’d asking Ciara to marry him and she said yes.


“You want commitment, most women want that,” he said during a discussion on the show with Jermaine Dupri’s daughter, Shaniah Mauldin. “Those are things that I’ve tried in my life, I’ve tried twice. I was engaged to Ciara and I was engaged to Erica [Mena].”

While he did not elaborate on how he proposed to Ciara, Bow Wow did express regret for messing up his previous engagements with both women.

“You know I let things in the past that I know was wrong affect my engagement. That’s what was eating me alive,” he disclosed. “Other than that, me and Erica would still be together. We would have never broken up. I didn’t know how to handle it. And I let it crumble. I let something get away that really shouldn’t even got away.”
