Pearl Thusi is making headlines again after she reportedly pulled a Rihanna by wearing an engagement ring which was claimed she had bought herself.
Well, Pearl and her man South African sports presenter, Robert Marawa have been spotted wearing matching ring-bands on their fingers sealing the rumors shut, once and for all.
Did they get engaged on a low key and away from the drama of the media?
The ring first got attention at the SA Music Awards weekend in June, when the actress was spotted on the red carpet and papparazzi noticed the glittering jewelry on her ring finger.
During the SAMA event, E! Beyond The Red Carpet correspondent Minnie Dlamini whose eyes also caught the shining piece interviewed the famous actress as she tried to find out who gave her the ring. To which Pearl replied, “Somebody special may have decided that I needed a special type of jewelery”.
Yesterday, Sunday Sun disclosed a source confirmed the Quantico actress was accused of “buying and wearing the ring in an attempt to drum up attention”.
A friend of Pearl’s man who is being quoted as the source said, “Robert had not bought the ring. The sports presenter told friends that he understood Pearl had bought the ring to be a ploy to “create hype for her brand or to chase other guys away.”
Pearl’s camp called the allegation “laughable and untrue” as it released a statement through her publicist Sarit Reouveni Tomlinson refuting the ‘attention-seeking’ rumors.
The statement which was divulged through TMG Entertainment read:
“It is sad that people feel the need to bring down and destroy the very talent that provides exposure and great platforms to other artists.”
Pearl and her man are rocking their rings together, who bought the ring doesn’t matter at this point.
