Rosie Huntington-Whiteley NOT Engaged To Jason Statham, Despite Report
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is not engaged, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this rumor, which began in the Mirror. The tabloid claimed she “fueled” talk of an engagement to longtime boyfriend Jason Statham when she was photographed wearing a “ring on her all important finger” while making her way through LAX Airport, which the paper dubbed as “celebrities’ favorite catwalk.”
The tabloid further notes Huntington-Whitely “didn’t try to hide her hand as she held on to a huge handbag and strolled past cameras.” To pad out its piece, the Mirror further notes, “The pair split last September for a short period but it seems the Hollywood hunk is ready to fully commit to her since he knows how important marriage is to her.” None of this, however, is true.
For starters, the Victoria’s Secret model did not fuel any rumors she’s engaged to the action star. Nor is there any reason for Huntington-Whiteley to “hide” anything because, most importantly, she’s not engaged to Statham. A source close to the couple tells Gossip Cop exclusively that she was spotted with “the same ring she has been wearing for years,” which was given to her by another man, namely her dad. Additionally, the paper’s filler about the couple having “split” last September is inaccurate. As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Statham and Huntington-Whitely never broke up, not even briefly.
But the real shocker is how the Mirror published nearly the exactly same story in February 2012. The tabloid similarly “reported” that while Huntington-Whiteley was, once again, in LAX Airport, she was wearing a ring that looked “remarkably like an engagement number” and was “making sure to show off her hand.” Deja-vu? Our same impeccable source, who was right nearly three years ago, said then as well that Huntington-Whiteley “has worn that ring for years.” We suspect we’ll be busting the Mirror for the same rumor in around three years from now.
