Amar'e Stoudemire's fiancee has revealed she was "too scared" to speak to Beyonce earlier this year at a red carpet event.
Alexis Welch has been dating the New York Knicks baller since 2002 and he finally popped the question this month. In her first ever interview, Alexis spills the gossip on what it was like to attend the MET Ball in NYC in April where the likes of Rihanna, Kanye West and Jay-Z were spotted on the red carpet.
However, it was Beyonce who Alexis became starstruck with and was too afraid to speak to.
"Thank goodness, Amar’e is used to these events, so he makes me feel more comfortable," Alexis told the NY Post.
"We were standing close to Beyoncé, but I was too nervous to introduce myself. Everyone has a wish list of celebrities [to meet]. She’s on there. But now, her husband is the owner of the Nets, so there’s a little bit of a rivalry going on."
Alexis and Amar'e are planning on getting married in 2013 but are yet to decide on a date.
