Rumor mills worked overtime recently in June 2018, when she was seen with McKinley outside the Leon Diamond jewelry store in New York City.
Williams and McKinley were holding hands as they walked out of the store and a media person asked her if they were getting married! She was also asked if they had just bought an engagement ring.
Williams artfully dodged the question and replied that they had looked at everything in the jewelry store.
