Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are definitely not
engaged, though rumours that they'd made their relationship official heated up
after they were allegedly spotted shopping for engagement rings.
An article posted on the Chicago Sun-Times website on 20
April suggested that the couple was ready to commit to one another and become
man and wife, and that was all it took for the buzz to go into overdrive.

stars began to comment on the news online, but the Baby hitmaker's rep, Scooter
Braun, has moved quickly to shoot down the claims.
Braun told UsMagazine.com the marriage rumours are
"complete bulls**t" and reveals he and his team are
"laughing" at the inaccurate speculation.
