Beyonce's Dance Captain Ashley Everett ends 2 year engagement to John, opens up to Essence Magazine
Hey Hey Guys and Welcome welcome back to the
Thank you guys so much for tuning in today and we
are going to go ahead and get started.
Now Miss Ashley Everett dances for Beyonce. I have seen her in Beyonce’s single ladies
video. And that’s where she actually
begin to catch my attention. Today we
are going to be talking about her public engagement and her behind close doors
love life with her ex finance John Silver.
Now over the years Beyonce has continued to put
out more music and when she tours, we meet some of the people that have helped
make Beyonce’s shows a success.
And don’t come for me in the comment section of
this video Beyhive, because for one I am a Beyonce fan, but Beyonce can’t make
the show happen by herself. Yes she has
a stage prescence, but the creativiness to help bring her tour shows to life
are not magical done by Beyonce alone. No
shade, but it’s the truth. It takes a
team and that’s just what it is.
So with all of that being said Ashley Everett is one
of the ladies in the background that has danced for Beyonce for a long long
time. And Ashely puts it like this, she
When her ex finance proposed to her, she says Beyonce
knew how much history me and John had, she just wanted to pay her
respects. And she knew Beyonce allowed
for that to happen, because of the history of her relationship with John. Meaning this was act of gratitude from
Beyonce and obviously Ashley must really mean a lot to Beyonce to let something
like this happen.
Now I do remember when Ashley got proposed to y’all. I
saw the video on social media and I couldn’t believe Beyonce had stopped her
show to allow something like this to happen.
It did make me ask myself, how much does Beyonce care for Ashley,
because she was obviously doing this as a favor for Ashley and not John her ex
finance. If that makes sense.
So, like I said I loved the video of Ashley being
proposed to. It was all over social
media y’all. She looked so happy, so her
putting this article out with Essence, makes me want to zone in and find out
why didn’t it work and I think I have a really great guess, based on what
Ashley told Essence in this interview.
So, Ashley did a recent interview with Essence
Magazine like I said September of 2019.
I will try to leave a link to it in the description box, but if not you
can find it on essence dot com just type in the search bar on essence’s website
Ashley Everett. And that is Ashley with
an ley at the end.
And to me a moment that seemed liked it was suppose to be glitter and gold, this proposal was suppose to
be magical and romantic and a time in your life that you never want to wake up
from, turned out to be one of the most confusing times in her life, because she
wasn’t sure what she wanted to do. She
wasn’t sure if she wanted to be married to John. I believe Ashley never wanted to be married
to this man.
Why did she say yes in the first place, well your
guess is just as good as mines, but what I will say is she couldn’t tell him no
when he proposed. Y’all she was in front
of all of these people and Beyonce her good friend let her borrow her stage to
let this moment happen. So how was she
suppose to respond.
Exactly, she was suppose to say yes. She had no other choice but to say yes. Imagine if she would have said no. That’s so embrassing to him as a man and it
would have played with his ego, but hey at least she would have spoke her truth.
Okay, so let’s break this down. All of this that I am about to read to you to
me makes it seem like Ashley wasn’t ready to get married and the timestamp of
their relationship leads me to think that Ashley never loved this man, the way
how he loved her.
was not all in it at the time of the proposal.
Now, She told Essence that the year she got proposed to
and during that time of the proposal she was on an emotional roller
coaster. She said she did not feel as
connected to John. And if she had felt
the connection, John would have known that that probably wasn’t the best timing. It wasn’t the best timing she said, because
she was a victim of Identity Theft. She
said it was really rough for her,
because it was such an invasion of her privacy.
Okay, so let me stop there! Let me read between the lines for y’all a
little bit on what Ashley is really to say, because if I was in Ashley shoes
and I have been with someone for 6 years, the goal of us dating for this long
should be marriage. And yes it was an
unfortunate event that happen to Ashley, I’m not saying identity theft is
something to look over, but this man wanted to tell the world that he wants you
to be his wife and he went through the trouble of getting Beyonce to share her
stage to propose to you and you tell Essence, that if y’all would have had a
connection during that time John would have known that wasn’t a great time to
propose to you.
Girl if you don’t get your life and get it all the way
together. You see this right here tells
me, she didn’t want to be married and I’m sure John felt that she wasn’t 100%
invested in the engagement once he proposed to this Queen, because of the way
how she treated the proposal during the first 2 years of them being
engaged. I don’t count it strange, them
being engaged for 2 years, but it is a little weird, being that money wasn’t an
issue, maybe their work schedule was an issue as to why they didn’t get married
within the first year of the proposal.
So here’s how I know for a fact that Ashely wasn’t too thrilled about
Ashley says after John proposed they had a beautiful
engagement shoot. She says after the engagement she realized that she wasn’t
the girl who dreamt of her wedding day and started thinking of the fact that
she had to pick flowers, textures, and silverware. There was all these choices I had to make and
it was overwhelming says Ashely. So, if
it was overwhelming than she should have let her family and friends help or
hire a wedding planner, or forget all of that and have a small justice of the
peace wedding. I’m just saying.
We took the first year to enjoy the engagement and
have fun with this new step in our relationship, then the next year rolled
around and I went on tour. I found
myself making excuses for why I wasn’t planning more. Eventually I had to look in the mirror and
ask myself why do I really want to be married or do I even want to marry him,
am I happy, do I need to work on me before I take this leap. I was trying to understand that a little bit
more, then of course with work and travel comes distance which means you have
to work harder for communication.
And my question is, isn’t this how it was before
y’all got married. Beyonce was still
touring before the engagement. They were
actually on the on the run tour 2, I believe, so what’s the difference between your
working schedule before you got engaged and after you got engaged. To me it sounds like Ashley wasn’t ready to
settle down y’all. This queen was happy
the way how things were in her life before John proposed. Another thing, I would like to know is what
hints did John have that Ashley was ready for marriage. Did y’all have conversations about it,
because she obviously is saying in this interview that she was not ready. Hint, hint, she was not ready
She continues to say,
At this point John and I were 8 years in. We were comfortable and used to each
other. We would go a day or two without
talking, wait what…
and she says I
felt like we weren’t on the same page anymore.
We had different goals and dreams as for as workwise and our friendship
was kind of fading away. We ultimately
decided to take some space. The space turned
into a break, and the break turned into a breakup. You either grow together or grow apart. I don’t look back and feel that I wasted my time. We had a great run while it lasted and I
learned a lot.
Hear me on this.
It didn’t work, because Ashely and John were living two separate
lives. After, 6 years of being with
someone you know if you want to be with someone for a lifetime. Ashely enjoyed dating her best friend, but
did not see a future with her best friend.
She says, when they meet she was
21. She said they meet at a Ne-yo
concert and they build their friendship up, before even becoming boyfriend and
girlfriend. She said they had so much in
common. Just like she danced, he danced
too. People even said she was the boy version of him and he was the girl
version of her. She said we did hit it
off at first and we were friends first.
That’s where the foundation came from.
Ashley was dating her friend, not a man who she saw
becoming her husband. In 6 years, I
don’t believe they were together the entire time and if so, it gets lonely on
the road being on tour so I’m sure she used him to her advantage.
So, on that note thank you so much for watching this
video, I really appreciate it. Please

to you guys in the next video. Bye.
