Los Angeles, July 12 (IANS) Singer Alesha Dixon, who got divorced from rapper MC Harvey in 2006 after discovering he was having an affair, says she still believes in love and marriage.
Dixon split from her husband after realizing he had an affair with fellow singer Javine Hylton.
She insists the heartbreak is over and she would definitely consider tying the knot with boyfriend Azuka Ononye, with whom she has a 22-month-old daughter Azura, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“Just because one marriage hasn’t worked out doesn’t mean you write off the idea. I don’t live in Bitter Town — the past is the past. That’s done. It’s like it was 100 years ago. I still believe in love and I still think that marriage is a positive thing, but I’m also not in a rush to run down the aisle.
“At the moment, I’m in a loving relationship with Azuka and he’s certainly marriage material,” Dixon told The Times newspaper.
The 36-year-old star also opened up about her relationship with her family and explained how even though she wasn’t in touch with her father, there were no hard feelings.
“Relationships should be easy. I accept that you have family members who you love but that you also don’t get along with. I don’t speak to my father but I have a lot of respect from him and I do love him.
“There are so many people in that situation. You get to a point where you think, you know what, life is too short. I want the relationships in my life to be healthy and happy,” she said.
