Could there be wedding bells in the near future for Usain Bolt and his longtime love Kasi Bennett? The couple is currently on vacation in Bora Bora, and stirred up rumors they took their relationship to the next level by getting engaged.
Bolt and Bennett have been documenting their vacation on Snapchat and Instagram, but a cryptic Snapchat post by the Olympic Jamaican sprinter has everyone wondering if he proposed to Bennett. According to the Daily Mail, Bolt shared an image of him and his girlfriend on vacation with the caption, “She said yes.” The 30-year-old athlete added emojis of eyes, a bride and heart. He later shared another Snapchat post of them, writing: “The only person opinion that matters #vacation.”
If Bolt and Bennett, 26, are engaged there have been no signs of her engagement ring in any of her photos. You can see some of the pair’s vacation photos below.
Bennett and Bolt jetted off for a vacation Friday. The world-famous athlete announced the trip in a Snapchat video of them waiting at the airport to board their plane. Once on their flight, he snapped a photo and wrote in the caption: “And it begins.”
Bolt and Bennett went public with their relationship last month, and faced a cheating scandal shortly afterwards when photos surfaced of Bolt getting cozy with 20-year-old Brazilian student Jady Duarte. The two apparently met a nightclub in Rio when Bolt was celebrating his 30th birthday. In an interview with the Daily Mail, Duarte described her and Bolt’s night together saying it was “very passionate and hot.”
Not long after Bolt was pictured with Duarte, he was seen partying with different women in London. People magazine reported that at one point, Bolt took about 10 women back to his hotel room for more partying. “They all went back to his hotel room and stayed up there until the early hours, so it must have been a good party,” a source said.
Despite the drama, Bolt’s half-sister Christine Bolt-Hylton was adamant that it wouldn’t ruin her sibling’s relationship with Bennett. Bolt-Hylton told the Mirror that she thought the couple would work through the rough patch, and even hinted that Bolt would propose to Bennett soon. “I’m sure Kasi will be used to it by now. She is used to seeing pictures like this,” she said, adding that Bolt “loves Kasi too much to jeopardize the relationship.”
