Justin Bieber's manager has laughed off reports the teen superstar is planning to propose to his girlfriend Selena Gomez after the cute couple was allegedly spotted shopping for engagement rings.
The singers' romance appeared to be heating up after an article posted on the Chicago Sun-Times website on Friday morning suggested the couple was ready to commit to one another and become man and wife.
Reporter Bill Zwecker wrote, "Several people close to the superstar couple say they're convinced an engagement is in the very near future. The teen idols were spied closely eyeing some pricy (sic) bling in a couple of major jewelry stores - especially major diamond baubles that could only be described as the kind usually slipped on a woman's left-hand ring finger."
The report sparked a Twitter.com frenzy as fans of the stars began to comment on the news online, but the Baby hitmaker's representative, Scooter Braun, has moved quickly to shoot down the claims.
Braun tells UsMagazine.com the marriage rumours are "complete bulls**t" and reveals he and his team are "laughing" at the inaccurate speculation.
Bieber and Gomez began dating in late 2010.
