She may be sporting a bold ring, but Halle Berry is playing coy with recent news of her engagement. Not only has she not confirmed the good news — which the media started reporting on after spotting a noticeable amount of bling on her finger — now, sources close to the star claim, she's not engaged at all.
TMZ cites "close friends and insiders" who claim that, despite appearances, the ring was only a gift from Berry's boyfriend of more than one year, French actor Olivier Martinez.
Even though they're supposedly not getting hitched, the source clarifies that Halle and Olivier are in a "committed relationship" and marriage "could be in the cards," but as of last week — when the photo came out — they were not engaged.
To confuse matters further, Martinez's ex, Kylie Minogue, has already congratulated the happy couple. "Congrats to Olivier Martinez and Halle Berry!! #wedding," the Australian pop star tweeted.
Further, a rep for the jewelry designer Gurhan, who made the diamond-and-emerald ring, tells People that the bauble is of the engagement kind.
So, is she or isn't she? Guess we'll have to wait for our wedding invite to know for sure.
