That's a mighty nice ring Ashley Benson is wearing, and it certainly looks like it could be an engagement sparkler…
But a source tells E! News that the Pretty Little Liars star is not engaged. Now about that jewelry:
As you can see, Benson was spotted with a noteworthy piece of bling Tuesday, Jan. 7, as she left L.A.'s Chateau Marmont. Still, even if she isn't betrothed to a special fellow, did a guy—Ryan Good or even James Franco, perhaps?—give it to her or is it simply a fun, flashy piece of jewelry the 24-year-old star bought for herself?
Reps for the actress were not immediately available for comment, and it doesn't seem too likely that Ashley herself will be tweeting too many personal details about her love life. She only officially confirmed her relationship with Ryan (aka Justin Bieber's former swag coach) after they'd broken up, telling Seventeen's April 2013 issue that "work is my boyfriend."
"Relationships can be scary," she said, "because once you're in one, you have to face the idea of breaking up or staying together forever."
Yep. There were reports that Ashley was dating Franco, her Spring Breakers costar, after they were spotted holding hands at a hayride in 2012. Franco joked about the purported romance, though, writing in a Huffington Post piece that both Ashley and pal Selena Gomez were " [Justin] Bieber's girls," adding, " I wouldn't dare tangle with the Biebs. I heard he wants to kick my ass. Yikes!"
