Bubba Sparxxx Engaged to Former Miss Iowa Katie Connors
We're not sure if Bubba Sparxxx ever found his Mrs. New Booty, but apparently the Georgia rapper has found love. The rapper is engaged to long-time girlfriend and 2010 Miss Iowa, Katie Connors.
According to TMZ, the couple, who met two years ago through mutual friends, recently made their pending matrimony official and have been sending out invites to friends and family for the big day. The date has already been set. The wedding will take place at Andrew Jackson's Hermitage in Nashville on May 21. The whole thing is expected to cost around $100,000.
Sparxxx came into prominence in the early 2000s, when he dropped his Timbaland co-signed LP, Dark Days, Bright Nights, on Interscope Records. The album featured the breakout Timbo-produced hit "Ugly," which peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100. He had marginal success with follow up albums Deliverance in 2003 and The Charm in 2006, the latter featured his highest-charting single to date, "Ms. New Booty" featuring the Ying Yang Twins, and "Heat It Up."
After a seven-year hiatus, he put out two independent albums, Pain Management in 2013 followed by Made on McCosh Mill Road in 2014.
Since his days on Interscope, Bubba has lost a considerable amount of weight and is loving life and his boo thang. He continues to work on new music and do shows so there's a possibility he will be dropping some new tunes this year. After the honeymoon, of course.
