Katy Perry’s been swinging some serious ice on her hand since the summer, when boyfriend/ Gym Class Heroes leader Travis McCoy gifted her an impressive yellow diamond promise ring.
But on Tuesday, the New York Daily News reported that the Warped Tour lovebirds had made it official with a romantic proposal in Paris. According to the gossip report, “the rapper popped the question recently in Paris by kissing Perry with a massive ring in his mouth.”
Cute story, right? And for the tattooed and pierced McCoy, the edgy remix on the classic proposal scenario seems fitting. The only problem? Well, it’s not true.
When asked to confirm the scenario, Trav’s manager Bob McLynn gave it a simple “nah,” and a spokesperson for Perry’s label also gave the story a thumbs-down.
Perry also threw water on the rumors on her blog in a a post titled “From the horses mouth,” in which she wrote, “NOT engaged! But thanks for the free press New York Daily News! You should fact check with the source before you spread worldwide news like that.”
McCoy, 27, and Perry, 24, have been dating for more than a year, and while the couple have tried to keep their private life out of the tabloids, McCoy recently told the PopEater site that he was insulted by reports about the promise ring.
“Recently I read about the promise ring I gave [Katy] … that I paid $300 for it. That was an insult considering the dent that it put into my bank account.”
