Justin Bieber sparked rumours that he has married his sweetheart Selena Gomez, after the teen singer was spotted wearing what looked like a wedding band on his left hand.
The Boyfriend singer, who has been dating Disney actress and singer Selena for more than a year, was snapped wearing the ring as he accepted an award at the Tribeca Film Festival.
However his manager Scooter Braun was quick to dispel any rumours about the couple getting hitched, telling the assembled audience: "I just realised that he's (Justin’s) wearing a ring on his ring finger. So after we leave here he's not engaged, he's not married, but I'm going to have to deal with that later."
A laughing Justin told the audience he “didn’t realise” the ring was on that finger, before moving it to his right hand.
Justin, 18, and Scooter were being honoured the third annual Disruptive Innovation Awards in recognition of the teen star’s discovering on YouTube and in celebration of his impact on popular culture, Digital Spy reports.
It’s not the first time Biebs has caused marriage rumours; in December stories that he and Selena had become engaged circulated after the pretty Wizards of Waverly Place star was seen wearing a sparkler on her finger.
Selena’s rep soon cleared up the matter though, and insisted: “She’s not engaged”.
