Keyshia Ka’oir wedded rapper Gucci Mane, born Radric Delantic Davis. It was a lavish $1.7 million ceremony in Miami that will remain the talk of the town for some foreseeable future.
Both lovers got married on Tuesday, October 17, at the Four Seasons in Miami. Keyshia Ka’oir posted photos of her wedding ceremony on Instagram and Twitter and tagged herself “Mrs. Davis #1017”.
The who’s who of the entertainment industry were gathered for the event. Some of the guests were Sean “Diddy” Combs, Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Karrueche Tran, Lil Yachty, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, Big Sean and Jhene Aiko among 200 other guests.
The $1.7 Million Wedding Was Film for a Special Premier Show on BET
The $1.7 million wedding ceremony was taped for Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir: The Mane Event. The program is part of a 10-part special that premiered on BET at 10 p.m. so that fans could see all that took place for the nuptials. “I want a royal wedding!” Ka’oir, 32, had said ahead of the wedding. “All white with diamonds and crystals.”
Keyshia Ka’oir was born in Jamaica but raised in Florida. She was a model and posed for a photo for XXL magazine. Gucci Mane saw the video vixen on the pages of the magazine and immediately fell in love. He boldly contacted Ka’oir’s manager and demanded to feature her in his upcoming musical video. Keyshia said she initially didn’t want to accept the offer but eventually did and Mane’s crew flew her out to the event and paid her for her work.
“I Want Kids…But I Am Not Getting Pregnant Right Now,” Ka’oir Says
Keyshia was in the process of launching a beauty line to be called “Ka’oir Cosmetics” at this time. Keyshia recounted Gucci was a perfect gentleman and she was charmed by his coolness. “I think it was love at first sight,” she said. “He was nothing like I expected him to be. I was charmed and confused at the same time.
Keyshia’s Ka’oir Cosmetics became successful and gave birth to Ka’oir Fitness in 2011. But Gucci Mane got into a lot of troubles. He was convicted for a lot of offenses and got shipped off to prison. We however reported that Gucci in retrospect says prison did him a lot of good because it reformed him. Now 37, Gucci was eventually released in May 2016, three months ahead of his scheduled release date.
Following their wedding yesterday, does Keyshia want children?
“I want kids, of course. I don’t know how [many] I want, but I am not getting pregnant right now,” Ka’oir says. “For now, I am going to focus on my man, the business second, and everything else will flow after.”
