Reality TV star Tila Tequila is getting married. On Wednesday morning the “Shot At Love” star announced on a USTREAM video that she was engaged to Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson. The 27-year-old announced to her fans, quote, “because I love you guys so much, we are giving you the exclusive first – Tila army fans – tonight, my girlfriend has asked me to marry her.” Following the announcement, Tila flashed a 17-carat diamond ring that Casey Johnson had purchased for her. Tila went on to say that the couple had a lot of planning to do for their big day, and then made out with her bride-to-be before eventually signing off.
On Tuesday evening, Tila Tequila and Casey Johnson attended a launch party in L.A. for Travis Barker’s Famous Stars and Stripes clothing line. A source at the party tells “Us” magazine, quote, “Tila and Casey told everyone they were engaged. They were showing off the ring to people!”
Tila Tequila skyrocketed to fame through MySpace, becoming one of the most frequently visited individuals on the social networking site. She went on to star for two seasons on MTV’s reality dating show “A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila.” Tila made headlines in September when she accused San Diego Chargers defensive lineman Shawne Merriman, of choking and restraining her at his home. The case has since been dismissed due to lack of evidence.
