Raymond Santana — one of the wrongfully convicted Central Park Five — just got engaged to a reality star, and tells us it wouldn’t have been possible without a little Instagram flirting.
Raymond was on “TMZ Live” Friday to give us the lowdown on his engagement to “Flavor of Love” star Deelishis, to whom he proposed on Thursday during a lunch date in ATL. Ray says he was pretty sly about it, dropping a faux attitude on his girl before he popped the question.
And, for all those thirsty folks on the ‘Gram … Raymond’s here to tell you why shooting your shot can pay major dividends. The story of how he and Deelishis met is so 2019, ya gotta watch the clip. Dude’s a romantic.
Of course, Ava DuvVernay‘s Netflix series “When They See Us” turned a spotlight on Raymond’s story — highlighting the injustice of his conviction for the vbrual 1989 rape and beating of a female jogger in NYC.
We asked Raymond if he would accept an apology from former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg for his administration’s role in avoiding a settlement in the CP5’s damage suit against the NYPD after their convictions were vacated.
You might recall … Bloomberg avoided settling the case before leaving office, and Mayor Bill de Blasio‘s administration agreed in 2014 to pay the CP5 a settlement of more than $40 million.
Bloomberg just entered the 2020 presidential race … and Raymond tells us why it would be hard to see an apology from the billionaire as genuine.
