UPDATE- Justin Timberlake finally proposed to his on again off again love Jessica Biel during their holiday vacation in Jackson, Wyoming last month.
Justin and Jessica have been dating for almost five years in a relationship often fraught with ebbing highs and lows as the two recently split for three months this past year.
But distance has a way of making the heart grow fonder as the two discussed what might be their next step when they reunited towards the end of 2011.
“When they reunited, they had a conversation about taking the next step.”
Rumors of an engagement surfaced late December but were not verified by the couple’s respective rep. It was sparked by a tweet from the Tayloe Piggott art gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming:
“Word on the street is that Justin Timberlake proposed to Jessica Biel at the Amangani last night. We’re picking out post-engagement presents for them just in case they come in! Trying to play it cool…”
According to US Weekly, a source recently revealed why Timberlake felt Wyoming was the perfect backdrop for him to pop the question.
“Justin knows how much she loves snowboarding and the mountains, so it was the perfect place. He knew it was the right time to propose.”
Justin previously stated that his 29 year old fiance was one the single most important people in his life, and although they were separated at that time, he still held her very close to his heart.
“In my 30 years, she is the most special person, O.K.? …I don’t want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me – for instance, her.”
Congratulations to the happy couple, and thumps up to Justin for the romantic proposal. That’s definitely bringing sexy back.
Katy Perry And Russell Brand Divorce Shocks Their Mutual Friends
“I was shocked when I found out,” a friend tells PEOPLE. “I was really surprised that Russell filed for divorce so quickly — especially at Christmas time.”
A friend continued, “I thought they would be together for a long time. Maybe not forever — but definitely not just 14 months. They were always laughing,” the source says. “They were very affectionate, always holding hands. They seemed like they were really in love.”
The now estranged couple married in a traditional Indian wedding which later angered Hindu leaders who felt they took their vows for granted but the friend added, “took marriage very seriously.”
Despite all the celebrity divorces in 2011 there is still hope that Katy and Russell can rekindle their love…it’s been done before.
