As if Liam Hemsworth needed anymore attention after all the buzz surrounding the success of Hunger Games, the actor is getting even more press because of a tweet by singer and actress Miley Cyrus.
After Cyrus, his girlfriend of three years, tweeted a picture of her manicured hand last Thursday — blinged out with a large diamond ring — rumors spawned that the 22 year old actor was preparing to walk down the aisle with his teenage beau.
The couple was spotted Saturday night at Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night XIII event in Arizona, where Cyrus again sported the giant sparkler, sparking more engagement rumor chatter.
However, Hemsworth and Cyrus are not engaged, according to a source close to the “Hannah Montana” star.
In fact, Miley debunked the rumor on her Twitter account Monday claiming the ring is a topaz stone. The actress wrote, “I’m not engaged. I’ve worn this same ring on this finger since November! People just wanna find something to tal(k) about! It’s a topaz people!”
Liam and Cyrus have dated since sharing the big screen in their 2009 film The Last Song. The couple split in August 2010, but reconciled a few months later.
Why do you think Miley Cyrus tweeted a photo of her ‘topaz ring’ on her wedding finger? Perhaps, she just wanted to help Liam Hemsworth out a little by boosting his buzz level for the Hunger Games release.
