Corey Taylor has popped the question to his girlfriend Alicia Dove.
The SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman announced the engagement by posting an Instagram photo of his bride-to-be wearing the ring that he gave her, along with the caption: "L'adorilust. Forever. And Ever."
Asked by one of her Twitter followers how Corey proposed, Alicia responded: "After breakfast at home, as I put the salsa back in the fridge I shut the door and he was standing there with a ring. Got down on one knee, and I immediately started crying on the floor with him. In our kitchen. In our sweats, nothing fancy. It was fucking perfect."
Taylor hooked up with Dove, who is a professional dancer and a member of the all-girl dance group CHERRY BOMBS, after the breakup of his eight-year marriage with Stephanie Luby.
Rumors of Taylor's possible romance with Dove gained strength in the fall of 2017 after CHERRY BOMBS went on tour with STONE SOUR.
Taylor, who shares a home with Dove in Las Vegas, recently called his fiancée "my best friend, "my confidant, "my push and pull, my warm kiss and my welcome home." He said: "She's everything I ever wanted and more, all rolled up into the most beautiful woman in the world to me." He added: "I thought I was lucky in life. But I never knew what it was like to REALLY be lucky... til I found her."
Dove has previously called Taylor her "king" and "best friend." She also credited the musician with showing her "a love I never thought was possible. His energy is warm, his heart is as big as the sun, and every single day I get to walk this earth by his side is a gift. I live to see his smile, and his laugh is my favorite sound."
Corey and Luby were married in November 2009 in Las Vegas inside the Palms hotel's Pearl concert theater. The wedding party marched down the aisle to METALLICA's "For Whom The Bell Tolls" before more than 350 guests, including JANE'S ADDICTION's Dave Navarro and SUGAR RAY's Mark McGrath.
Taylor divorced his first wife Scarlett — whom he married in March 2004 in a small ceremony at the Botanical center in Des Moines, Iowa — in early 2007. In the November 2008 issue of Revolver magazine, he was quoted as saying, "After I got sober, I realized my relationship wasn't right for me. My wife and I had damaged each other too much."
