– TLC singer Chilli and “Boy Meets World” actor Matthew Lawrence met on a plane during a snowstorm, and hit it off immediately.
– Lawrence and Chilli kept their romance private for months, getting to know each other through long-distance phone calls and visits.
– The couple shares similar family values and went public with their relationship in January 2022 by posting a video dancing in matching onesies on Instagram.
It seems that fate had a hand in bringing TLC singer Chilli and “Boy Meets World” actor Matthew Lawrence together. In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Lawrence shared details about how he and Chilli first met since confirming their relationship on Instagram on New Year’s Day. Apparently, a snowstorm brought them together, as they ended up on the same plane and hit it off instantly. Despite feeling a connection right away, Lawrence and Chilli took their time getting to know each other as friends for five or six months before officially becoming a couple.
During the early stages of their relationship, the couple kept things low-key and out of the public eye. It wasn’t until January 3 that Chilli’s rep confirmed to People that the two of them became romantically involved just before Thanksgiving, and they spent the holiday season together. In February, they went Instagram official by posting a video of themselves dancing together in matching onesies. The news came shortly after Lawrence’s divorce from Cheryl Burke, a dancer from “Dancing With the Stars,” was finalized.
Both Lawrence and Chilli have had high-profile relationships in the past. Chilli famously dated Usher and Nick Cannon, while Lawrence was engaged to Heidi Mueller before marrying Burke in 2019. However, Lawrence says his relationship with Chilli is unlike any other he’s experienced before. He describes her as a “really, really special human being” who puts her family first and has strong morals and values. Chilli’s rep, Christal Jordan, says she’s “never seen [Chilli] this in love” in the 17 years they’ve worked together.
It’s clear that Lawrence and Chilli have a strong connection and are taking things slow as they get to know each other better. It’s heartening to see a couple prioritize their friendship and values in a world where relationships can often move too quickly or be based solely on superficial factors. We wish them all the best as their relationship continues to grow and evolve.
