Emmy Rossum is NOT engaged to her boyfriend Sam Esmail, despite speculation after the actress was recently spotted wearing a diamond ring. Us Weekly spread the rumor that Rossum and Esmail could be set to tie the knot. But a rep for the “Shameless” star has now confirmed that Rossum is “not engaged.”

On Tuesday, Rossum had been photographed shopping in New York with a conspicuous sparkler on her finger. By the time she and Esmail attended the Knicks game at Madison Square Garden that night, the ring was no longer there.

The actress was previously married to Justin Siegel from 2008 to 2010. She and her “Shameless” co-star Tyler Jacob Moore later began dating, ending their relationship in 2013.

Rossum and Esmail collaborated on her new movie Comet, which he wrote and directed. Earlier this week, the couple attended a holiday party at the White House. Rossum shared an Instagram picture of the glam pair (see below), and tweeted, “I met the President tonight. I have to admit. I got very emotional. What an honor.”

In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, Rossum said of her new beau, “I don’t gravitate to the jock; it’s the nerdy guy in the corner.” But despite what Us Weekly reported, the happy couple is still waiting to get engaged.
