Jessica Biel was recently spotted trying out some rings in a jewelry store in LA and this fuelled the rumours that she and boyfriend Justin Timberlake are engaged. But don’t be hasty with the conclusions! As Justin opened up to Oprah Winfrey on her show recently, he denied suggestions that the pair were heading up the aisle in the near future.
He arrived on Oprah’s show on Friday morning to promote his clothing line, William Rast, and as the conversation quickly turned to his relationship with Jessica Biel, the singer, 28, denied reports suggesting that he proposed to Biel in Italy last year. "I'm not engaged," he told Oprah. "If she's engaged, we have a problem."
Justin Timberlake was romantically linked to Jessica Biel, 27, in January 2007, confessing that the Blade: Trinity actress is a perfect woman for him. Earlier this month, the couple was rumored planning to tie the knot in Italy in the summer. "Justin and Jessica were talking about who they'd invite to their wedding and where they would hold the reception," a source told Star Magazine previously. "And they both seemed to like the idea of marrying in Italy in the summer."
However, Justin did say that his girlfriend is a big inspiration for him when it comes to designing his collection: "She's obviously a huge muse for me, and with the designers too.” He also added that Jess loves the clothes so much that he "can't get it off of her".
