Kylie Jenner wore a ring on that finger in a new selfie, and people are now wondering if she is now engaged. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been dating Jaden Smith for several months, and it appears as though her new bling might be an object of his affection. According to Celebrity Dirty Laundry, Kylie was with her friend Shamari Maurice in West Hollywood on July 10 when she posted a photo on Instagram. It didn't take long for the internet to light up with rumors that the young reality star is engaged.
The engagement rumors haven't been addressed but it seems beyond obvious that Kylie and Jaden aren't engaged. Could this photo have been part of a publicity stunt? Surely.
Kylie Jenner and her ring could have been a way for her to get attention (like the Kardashian/Jenner clan needs more of that). Since Kylie has reportedly been living in the shadow of her older sisters (Kendall, Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney), she might have wanted some spotlight for herself.
According to The Celebrity Cafe, Kylie has been accused of being "jealous" of her sister Kendall. A source explained:
"Kylie’s such a pretty girl, but she’s found it difficult that her sister Kendall’s modelling career has taken off so much more than hers. Kendall is a natural born model. Kylie says she’s happy for her but, behind the scenes, all her friends know she’s jealous."
It sounds like Kylie Jenner's ring photo might have been a way for her to make headlines (well done, she's trending on almost all search engines today), but it also may have been nothing at all. You can't really see a "huge diamond," and it looks like the ring is nothing more than, well, a ring!
Do you think Kylie posted the photo for attention?
