KATHARINE MCPHEE SHOWS HOW DAVID FOSTER SUGGESTED: ‘HE DID IT ON THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN’

“He did it on the top of the mountain in Anacapri. Completely dark, with only stars. Thankfully he didn’t push me off the cliff. He said that one or the other. And in the end that he spared me,” McPhee said.

After the news of their engagement, it was revealed Foster had attended McPhee’s marriage with her first husband, Nick Cokas, in 2008 and even played piano as the singer sang Natalie Cole and Nat King Cole’s hit “Unforgettable.”

Foster and McPhee were rumored to be dating in May 2017 after being spotted at a dinner in Malibu. Later, the two have confirmed that they were, in a few month when she appeared at the Gala together. The pair became friends after the meeting of the “American Idol” in 2006.
