Max George and Michelle Keegan Call Off Wedding

11 Apr 2012

Plus, why The Wanted star Max George's crush on Jennifer Lopez got him jabbed by Casper Smart

Rumours of a split between The Wanted star Max George and his actress fiancee Michelle
Keegan have been flying around for a while and now it turns out that the couple have called off their engagement - a week after the British pop hunk
made his feelings for Jennifer Lopez known during an appearance on American
. Max and Michelle haven't called it quits, but the wedding's definitely off.

Max confirmed the news during a phone chat with Idol host
Ryan Seacrest on his radio show on 10 April, and initially appeared to be too
upset to continue.

After one of Seacrest's sidekicks, Ellen K, asked George
if it was true he was engaged, the singer said, "No, no, not any
more," before the line went dead.

The radio presenter eventually managed to get back to
George, who added, "I don't know what happened there," but he seemed
unwilling to face the questions about his love life.

Max later took to Twitter to clear up what happened,
writing, "Hey everyone, so just to clear up any rumours, me and Shell are
still very much together, just there is no wedding. The call got cut off....
And made it sound much worse."

But it's clear the singer has a crush on a bigger star -
he planted a kiss on J-Lo when he met her during an appearance on Idol last
week, and admits he's very fond of the actress/singer.

Asked by Seacrest who the biggest flirt in The Wanted is,
the 23 year old said, "If it's someone along the lines of Jennifer Lopez,
then it's me."

And he confessed that Lopez's current boyfriend Casper Smart
was not thrilled by his love rival's forwardness: "He gave me about four
jabs in the ribs for kissing her."
