Kylie Jenner sparked rumors that she may be engaged after showing off a giant ring on Christmas, but the young Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is setting the record straight.
Kylie posted a picture on Christmas showing a huge diamond ring, and was later seen wearing it in a video posted to Snapchat. It led to widespread speculation that Kylie had gotten a Christmas proposal from longtime boyfriend Tyga.
On the surface, it seemed to make sense. Kylie and Tyga have been dating a long time, and the holidays are a very popular time to get engaged.

But apparently it wasn’t true. After celebrity news sites ran with the speculation that Kylie Jenner was engaged to her boyfriend Tyga, Kylie took to her app to explain that the ring didn’t mean she was getting married.
“Every year my Mom throws a huge Christmas Eve party and this year’s was so fun (and sparkly)! It was really special to end such a big year celebrating with all of my friends and family… and with an extra special gift from a special someone,” she wrote on her app.
But in reference to that ring, Kylie wrote, “NO, I’m not engaged :)”
Kylie Jenner and Tyga have been dating several months now, though they recently went through a rough patch around Thanksgiving time.
There have been other reports of trouble for Kylie Jenner and Tyga, including reports that Kylie had been seeing a new man, Harry Hudson.
“New guy Harry Hudson (pictured above) is an aspiring pop singer who Jenner met through mutual friends. The duo was spotted shopping at an upscale Los Angeles clothing boutique on Dec. 11.”
“A few days after the shopping spree, Harry accompanied Kylie to the joint birthday party Kourtney Kardashian threw for Mason Disick and Reign Disick. Sources reveal that Kylie and Harry were seen leaving a recording studio later in the evening after the Kardashian family birthday party.”
“The fashion model began visiting Harry in the hospital in June 2013 – the young man was undergoing treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Back in 2013, Harry gave an interview and said that Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner came to visit when no one else did. Has Kylie and Harry’s friendship turned to romance?”
Another source told Hollywood Life that things are just great between Kylie Jenner and Tyga, who spent Christmas together at Kris Jenner’s annual party. Tyga even had his own stocking, with his name embroidered on it, hanging at the Jenner home.
A source told the outlet that Kylie and Tyga were very close at the party, holding hands and even sharing a kiss.
But it can be difficult to tell the truth from rumors when it comes to the Kardashian-Jenner clan. Kylie and her sisters are often the center of celebrity rumors, including past reports that Kylie and Tyga had gotten engaged or that she was pregnant — both proven wrong.
She has a long way to go to catch up with her sisters, however. There are seemingly weekly rumors that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are headed for divorce, and before Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom officially split they were inundated with stories about cheating, fights, and breakup threats — some of them true, some not.
While celebrity news sites never seem to lack for stories related to the Kardashians, in this case seems that Kylie Jenner was feeding the engagement rumors herself by posting the picture of her giant ring.
