Sarah Silverman NOT Engaged To Michael Sheen, Despite Report
As Gossip Cop reported, Silverman nearly died from epiglottitis earlier this month and later detailed the frightening experience in a Facebook post. And now according to the National Enquirer, the death scare motivated the comedienne’s boyfriend to propose. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “The thought of losing her was too much, which is what made him pop the question!”
The magazine’s ill-informed insider adds, “Everyone’s amazed he’s had a change of heart. But seeing Sarah at death’s door changed his point of view.” Of course, both Silverman and Sheen having gone on record in the past saying neither intends to get married. Still, Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for the stand-up star, who exclusively assures us the proposal story is simply “not true.”
In fact, Silverman herself called out the Enquirer’s sister publication, Star, for making a similarly false claim nearly two years ago. After the outlet wrong reported Silverman was pressuring Sheen to buy her an engagement ring, the comedienne tweeted, “Just read that I wanna get married which is hilarious b/c I will never get married.” Silverman’s health scare hasn’t changed that fact.
