Vivica A. Fox is being backed by her gal pal Star Jones over her decision to marry Atlanta club promoter Omar 'Slim' White, who is 19 years younger than The Cougar reality star, has exclusively learned.

Jones -- who went through a tough time when her own 4-year marriage to Al Reynolds ended in divorce in 2008 -- is supporting the engagement, although some of Fox's friends are privately skeptical.

Fox, 46, was deliriously happy after White, 27, popped the question during a vacation in South Beach, Miami, over the holidays after he bought her a $60K, eight-carat diamond ring.

A source revealed: "A few of her friends are worried that White might be using Vivica but Star has been really supportive about the engagement.

"Vivica is a tough lady and she has told her inner circle that they had better back her decision or run the risk of losing her friendship.

"However, some privately doubt White's motives but Star has been talking the decision-up and has told them to give him the benefit of the doubt and be happy for Vivica.

"Vivica never had any children with her first husband Christopher Harvest during their four year marriage and she wants to make up for that with Omar.

"Her friends are just hoping that Star is right and that Vivica has made the right decision by getting engaged to somebody who is much younger and less known than her."

The couple has been dating for about one year and despite their 19-year age difference, they share common interests in music and keep fit.

The Kill Bill star previously told that it was totally okay for older women to date younger guys.

And she offered advice to fellow cougars by saying: "My first tip is: please make sure that you're not a sugar mama - that changes the dynamic of any relationship. Even if he's younger than you, you need to feel equal.

"The most important thing for me, though, is that I'm with somebody who can be my friend."
