Wednesday, July 18, 2007 Pop-rock diva Ashlee Simpson has said that rumours about her engagement to rocker Pete Wentz are untrue. Her representative has issued a statement in this regard, and stated that the reports about the impending marriage of Wentz and Simpson are "absolutely not true."
A report posted on gossip website Popcrunch claims that Wentz proposed to Simpson for marriage on July 7, before Fall Out Boy's performance at Live Earth. It also speculates that the engagement stems from news that Simpson is pregnant.
According to the website, the rumoured engagement has been kept a secret because Simpson fears the overexposure that plagued Nick Lachey and older sister Jessica's marriage.
However, it has now turned out that the rumours of the couple's secret engagement are baseless, reports US Weekly magazine.
