Rumors that Katy Perry and Russell Brand got engaged last month have been gaining traction, helped in part by Perry’s giddy, denial-free vacation tweets from India. But with Us Magazine hopping on the “exclusive details” train (though they date the actual proposal after the Mirror‘s initial story), Gossip Cop had to go and get some confirmation/denial from their reps. So what’s the news?
While Perry’s manager tells the spoilsports that Us‘s story is “not accurate,” the truth-o-meter usually attached to their posts is noticeably absent, and GC promises to “monitor the story as it develops.” What story would there be if there was no truth to the talk? Is the manager out of the loop or is Us? As awkward as it must be for happy couples to deny they’re engaged, hopefully Katy will stop taking monkey photos long enough to let her followers know. Then again, we’d settle for another monkey photo.
