Yesterday I jokingly posted a link to a report that claims that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel got themselves engaged to be married … but it turns out that the rumor may actually be true. When I first heard the rumor, I dismissed it because Justica like to make a habit of breaking up and getting back together again. But today we learn that the engagement rumor may have some teeth. Now, granted, the rumor is still an unconfirmed rumor but … I think I may be starting to believe.
This is still very much at the rumor stage, but reports are surfacing that Justin Timberlake proposed to his on-again, off-again girlfriend Jessica Biel this past weekend. The source? A Facebook/Twitter post from a gallery/jeweler in Jackson, Wyo. “Word on the street is that Justin Timberlake proposed to Jessica Biel at the Amangani last night,” read the message from Tayloe Piggott Gallery. “We’re picking out post-engagement presents for them just in case they come in! Trying to play it cool…” A New York City publicist is also getting in on the action — Kyle Schaffler, who apparently works for Coach in some capacity, tweeted the news at various media outlets Tuesday. (So far, E! and blogger Jon Ali have not published anything in response to his tip.) Later, he tweeted to the general populous: “Hehe, I love that NO media outlets know about the Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel engagement. Benefits of working in PR.” The Amangani is a luxury resort in Jackson Hole. The resort has not posted any related messages on its website or its Twitter feed (which has not been updated in almost a year.)
OK … so maybe this rumor only has baby teeth but still … I suppose it’s possible that Justica got themselves engaged to be married. After all, Justin‘s ex Britney Spears got herself engaged to be married to Jason Trawick last week … it seems like the PERFECT time for Justin to do the same with Jessica, right? I dunno. I guess I’m just sharing this info just in case it turns out to be true but … well … I guess we’ll have to wait and see. What do y’all think? Do you believe that Justin and Jessica are gettin’ hitched?
