Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are not engaged, despite a new tabloid story claiming the “Game of Thrones” co-stars are planning to wed in a castle in Scotland. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this report. We’re told the tale is as fabricated as the plots of the hit HBO fantasy series.

The couple met in 2012 while playing on-screen love interests Jon Snow and Ygritte on “Game of Thrones,” but the pair didn’t publicly confirm they were dating until last year. A supposed “source” now tells Life & Style that their relationship has reached the next level as “Kit recently cooked Rose a romantic candlelight dinner and proposed to her. She burst into tears and immediately said yes!” The outlet’s alleged insider goes on to claim the couple is planning a “traditional Scottish wedding with kilts and bagpipes” at the castle where Leslie lived as a child. “They aren’t into the whole Hollywood scene at all,” adds the tabloid’s questionable source.

The outlet doesn’t have any other specifics, such as when Harington supposedly popped the question or what the engagement ring looks like. Gossip Cop, however, investigated the publication’s claim and has exclusively learned the truth. A rep for Harington tells us he hasn’t proposed to his girlfriend and the magazine’s story is entirely “fabricated.” The couple’s relationship appears to be going strong, but they simply are not engaged.

It should be noted, this isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has had to call out Life & Style for making up a bogus story about a “Game of Thrones” cast member’s love life. We previously busted the magazine for wrongly reporting Sophie Turner was dating Ansel Elgort. The magazine clearly needs better sources for the stars of the hit show.

UPDATE: When this article originally appeared in July, Harington and Rose were not engaged, as claimed. Since then, Gossip Cop is told the “Game Of Thrones” star proposed in September. There’s no word yet when they plan to marry.
