Is Kim Kardashian engaged? Prior to the big game, the bootylicious socialite shot down rumors that if beau Reggie Bush got a Superbowl ring, she’d be getting an engagement ring. But just days after the Saints’ upset victory, a blog report claimed that the running back has indeed proposed to his on-again girlfriend — two nights before the Superbowl.
The owner of Miami steakhouse Prime 112 is said to have told rapper Ludacris that Reggie popped the question Friday night in front of Kim’s family and friends, according to Web site the YBF. Granted, not exactly a firsthand account … but the reality star did have her left hand covered with her jacket as she left the restaurant to waiting paparazzi.
Even if this rather specious account turns out to be false — Kim did tweet a photo of her hand, sans ring, with nails painted in the Saints’ colors — we’re guessing it’s only a matter of time before Kim gets married and starts trying for kids. After all, she’s got to keep up with the other Kardashian sisters.
Lindsay: No Violence
Lindsay Lohan is vehemently denying a report that former girlfriend Samantha Ronson was abusive. The rumor mill went into overdrive when Radar Online claimed their turbulent relationship had gotten violent, but the starlet insists it isn’t so.
“One time I saw her [Lindsay] and she had a large welt on her head,” a source reportedly relayed to the site. “She told me that Sam beat the [expletive] out of her. She also said that Sam even punched and choked her one time.”
But as usual, LiLo employed her Twitter account as a DIY publicist, declaring on Tuesday, “This is [sic] become a bit much. Samantha R. never raised a hand to me, I’ve never said she did. Enough is enough. Focus on other more important world issues.”
No problem, Linds — consider it done. Say, did you hear Angelina Jolie went to Haiti? That’s an important world issue, right?
John’s “Drug” of Choice
The king of TMI, John Mayer, is once again dishing dirt about his sex life—and the high-profile women he’s loved and left. The singer-songwriter had no problem telling “Playboy” that his relationship with Jessica Simpson was based on — well, you can probably guess.
“Sexually it was crazy. That’s all I’ll say,” the musician declared to the girlie mag. “It was like napalm, sexual napalm.”
He also called his pop-star ex “a drug,” musing, “Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me.”
And though he praised another former girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, as “the most communicative, sweetest, kindest person,” he couldn’t resist a thinly veiled dig at her age. “There was a rumor that I’d been dumped because I was tweeting too much,” he recalled. “That wasn’t it, but that was a big difference. The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think she’s still hoping it goes back to 1998. She saw my involvement in technology as courting distraction. And I always said, ‘These are the new rules.’” Ouch!
John, we hate to be the ones to break this to you, but … all that hard work you put into not seeming like a jerk? Yeah, you just canceled it out.
