Game and his longtime girlfriend Tiffney Cambridge abruptly called off their engagement in July, just a few weeks shy of their approaching wedding date, but the Compton rapper says he and Cambridge are still working things out.
The couple has been on a roller-coaster ride of emotional ups and downs in their relationship in the last year. Back in October, Game made headlines when he staged an elaborate proposal at Cambridge's workplace, Frank D. Parent Elementary School in Inglewood, California, where he happily admitted he was throwing away his "player card" and ready to be a family man.
Nine months later, the couple unexpectedly called off their pending nuptials. The wedding was canceled along with reported plans to build a reality show around their big day. The Game himself took the blame for "not being man enough to see it through."
Now it seems as though there might be a happy ending in the works after all. When MTV News caught up with Game on Friday (August 24), he said he and Cambridge are working things out.
"The engagement, as of right now, you know what? We're just working on us," he told us from the Northridge, California, set of the music video shoot for "Celebration" (featuring Lil Wayne, Tyga, Wiz Khalifa and Chris Brown). "We're working on the family aspect, working on getting stronger as friends and trying to build a foundation and not so worried about a day or paperwork or a ring or food or flowers. [We're] just working on us, because that's the thing about it — with relationships, not even marriage — both people, everything has to be weighed evenly, or it's not going to work, so we've got work to do."
