Grammy winner Nelly Furtado is engaged to sound engineer Demo Castellon, who worked on her hit 2006 album Loose, People has confirmed.

Their close friend, music producer Timbaland, confirmed that they have gotten engaged when recently asked if the rumor was true. His reply?


The British Columbia-born Nelly Furtado, 28, told Blender in July 2006 she had a “secret boyfriend” of eight months, adding: “I just don’t really talk about it. It’s nobody famous or anything.”

Ouch. Sorry, Demacio “Demo” Castellon. You’re no one famous or anything!

Furtado has a three-year-old daughter, Nevis, with DJ and producer Jasper “Lil’ Jaz” Gahunia. They split in 2005 after four years together, but are still close.

“We’re fully active co-parents and really close friends,” said the off-and-on Fergie rival of her amicable relationship with her ex.

Asked why the two had never married, Furtado said, “I’m kind of modern. I don’t really live by society’s standards. Maybe in the next five years I’ll get married. One grandmother had eight kids, the other had 10. If I have that many kids, then I need a hubby.”

Furtado, the Timbaland and Justin Timberlake collaborator who speaks three languages and is currently recording a Latin album, pulled off a clean sweep of Canada’s Juno music awards.

Nominated in five categories, the “Promiscuous” one won every one, including album of the year. Steve Nash must be so proud.

Their engagement was first reported by that ass clown Perez Hilton.
