Nelly Furtado has announced that she is engaged to Timbaland’s sound engineer, Demacio “Demo” Castellon. The couple met while working on Furtado’s 2006 album Loose. People reports:
The British Columbia-born Furtado, 28, told Blender in July 2006 she had a “secret boyfriend” of eight months, adding: “I just don’t really talk about it. It’s nobody famous or anything.” Furtado has a daughter, Nevis, 3, with DJ and producer Jasper “Lil’ Jaz” Gahunia. She and Gahunia split in 2005 after four years together, but Furtado told Blender: “We’re fully active co-parents and really close friends.”
You’d think it would take a lot to score a big star like Nelly Furtado, but apparently all it takes is turntables and an unoriginal nickname. That Demacio guy must be super excited because that approach usually stops working around junior high. At least it did for me. Blackmail and telling girls I’m an astronaut is working out pretty well for me now.
