Legit proposal or a publicity stunt?
Jaden Smith, 17, and Kylie Jenner are rumored to be engaged, and although the evidence suggests the rumors may be true, it seems unlikely.
Reports have been circulating all week that Jaden may have proposed to 16-year-old Kylie after she posted an Instagram photo on July 8 of herself posing in a mirror. One can't help but notice a big 'ole rock on her left ring finger.
However, one has to remember that Kylie’s family tends to seek media attention.
I4U speculates that the twosome are allowing the rumors to continue because Kylie’s sister, Kendall Jenner, has been hogging all the limelight. Perhaps Kylie may have felt a twinge of jealousy and started the rumor of engagement to Jaden Smith to one-up Kendall, as I4U contends.
Adding fuel to the proposal rumor is another Instagram photo of Jaden and Kylie, in which Kylie wishes Jaden happy birthday.
On Saturday, Kylie posted another pic on Instagram with the same ring on the same finger.
This isn’t the first time that Kylie has posed wearing what looks like an engagement ring.
Jaden and Kylie do seem to be close. Jaden apparently flew to Europe in May for the wedding of Kylie's sister, Kim Kardashian, to Kanye West. A witness told E! News that the young couple were seen making out during the reception. However, the teens have never declared themselves a couple.
If a wedding is coming, it certainly won't be without some strife between the Jenner and Smith households. Recent reports said that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have barred Kylie’s older sister, Kendall, from coming to the house.
“Jada took an instant dislike to Kendall; she’s got a rude mouth on her,” said a source close to the Kardashian family. “The way she spoke to Jada’s housekeeper was atrocious and arrogant.”
Neither teen has spoken up to either confirm or deny the proposal reports. However, Jaden posted this on July 4.
Anything You See In Any Magazine Ever Is Fake.
