Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy can’t catch a break in 2014 as new engagement speculation has forced one of his representatives to come forward and clear the air.

Widespread rumors and buzz about Puffy and longtime Bad Boy Records artist Cassie getting engaged surfaced over the weekend.

Are Diddy and longtime girlfriend Cassie Ventura engaged? If the proof is in the music mogul’s recent Instagram post then chances are the couple are heading towards matrimony. “Baby do you like it?” Diddy, 44, captioned a photo Saturday of a blinged out engagement ring. “I just want to get you wat you Like!” he added. “I just wanna Mk you smile 🙂 #takeDat!” (New York Daily News)

Despite the hype, one of Puff’s reps immediately shot down the gossip.

However a rep for the rapper told the Daily News that the entrepreneur and the 27-year-old singer, who have been dating since 2007, “are not engaged.” While they appear to be in a loving relationship, Diddy has been quite candid in the past about not wanting to get married. It definitely would be a dream come true for me to just one day be ready for the (marriage),” he said during an October 2013 interview on “The View.” He added: “I’m not really looking because I know the responsibility that comes with that, and I think that a lot of people, they jump into that and they’re not honest with themselves.” (New York Daily News)

The alleged couple sparked a steamy exchange a couple years ago via Instagram.

Plenty of people have speculated that Diddy and Cassie are a “thing” for some time now, but if you’ve totally missed the obvious, the singer-slash-model took to Instagram to beckon her Bad Boy home and reconfirm what we already knew. “Just what I needed… #latenightbubblebath,” she wrote. “Wish you were here… I miss you… Hurry home.” It didn’t take long for the mogul to regram her photo saying, “Be home soon baby.” It looks like the arguably odd couple are holding anything back these days. While they’re happy, several fans are making a fuss since Mr. Take That is 16 years Cassie’s senior. Nonetheless, they seem very happy together. (VIBE Vixen)
