Reality TV starlet Kim Kardashian
and boyfriend Reggie Bush won't be hearing any wedding bells anytime soon. The star of E!'s Keeping Up with the Kardashians
has made that clear as she slammed rumors that she's engaged to the NFL star.
Reports of the couple's engagement immediately surfaced after “Kim Engaged! Never put a ring in someone's dessert they could SWALLOW IT!!!!” was posted on Kim's Facebook page at 4:35am on October 14. But a representative for the recently ousted Dancing with the Stars
participant denied the engagement being true, calling it just a rumor. In fact, Kim doesn't even a have a Facebook page to begin with.
"I'm not engaged," Kim told E! News
. "I'm not even on Facebook!"
Evidently, a user pretending to be the Keeping Up with the Kardashians
star created a fake Facebook profile, changing the status to "Engaged" and reportedly sharing details of the rendezvous.
After catching wind of her rumored engagement, Kim also decided to clarify the buzz on her official website.
"OMG! There are a bunch of websites reporting today that Reggie and I are engaged!" she wrote. "Apparently someone has made a fake Facebook page, pretending to be me, and the page said I got engaged! Everyone has been calling Reggie and I asking us! It's not true! I don't even have a Facebook page! Maybe I should get one!"
Meanwhile, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians
star isn't the only one taken aback by the hoax. According to E!, boyfriend Bush has also been surprised by the congratulatory phone calls he's been receiving.
"Reggie was like, 'What are you talking about?' He had no idea the rumor was even out there," Kim said.
The couple, who have been dating since April 2007, have admitted that marriage is definitely on the cards. However, Kim calling her boyfriend "hubby" as a term of endearment is the closest thing to marital bliss they are going to get for the time being.
