Rodney Stone from the hip hop group Funky Four Plus One was married to Grammy Award nominated singer Angela Laverne Brown better known as Angie Stone.
According to online info, the couple tied the knot in 1983 and Rodney is the father of Angie’s daughter Diamond (pictured below) born in 1984 That would make Rodney a grandpa to his daughter Diamond’s two children. Angie also has a son named Michael, born in 1998 from her relationship with singer D’Angelo, so sometime between the late 80’s Rodney and Angie parted ways although no record of their divorce is found.
As you will understand is kind of hard to find a picture of the former couple together since they are not! Anymore.
