LaKeith Stanfield sparked engagement rumors on Sept. 27 by sharing a photo of girlfriend Kasmere Trice wearing a huge diamond ring on that finger. He’s since deleted the Instagram post, and a rep for the actor confirmed to POPSUGAR that they’re apparently not engaged, but the photo stirred up plenty of newfound interest in Trice and her relationship with the “Atlanta” star.
A model signed to Atlanta-based Select Model Management, Trice appeared in the campaign for Polo Ralph Lauren’s partnership with two historically Black colleges, Morehouse and Spelman. She graduated from the latter with a political science degree in 2015 and, according to her Instagram bio, also attended Harvard University. She and Stanfield rarely post on social media, so it’s unclear exactly when they started dating, but Trice hard-launched their romance on Sept. 4 with a video of them kissing and a shot of the aforementioned pear-shaped diamond ring, though it’s on her middle finger in the snaps. She also alluded to them possibly living together by sharing a black-and-white photo he captured and captioning it, “framing this in our home.”
While little is known about Trice’s former relationships, Stanfield was previously linked to “The Mindy Project”‘s Xosha Roquemore, whom he started dating in 2015. The actors were romantically involved for years and welcomed a baby girl together in 2017, but it’s a mystery exactly when they went their separate ways.
Newly engaged or not, there’s no denying Stanfield and Trice look incredibly happy together. Check out all the glimpses inside their low-key romance we’ve gotten so far.
