    Kim Kardashian Bushwhacks Engagement Rumors

    Kim Kardashian, Reggie Bush Jean Baptiste Lacroix/

    She may have recently referred to boyfriend Reggie Bush as "hubby," but the inaccurate term of endearment is as close to marital bliss as Kim Kardashian is gonna get for the time being.

    The reality star and recently ousted Dancing With the Stars hot stepper has shot down reports that she's engaged to her NFL beau, rumors which began this morning when a Kardashian imposter posted the phony news on Facebook.

    "I'm not engaged," the 27-year-old tells E! News. "I'm not even on Facebook!"

    Kardashian's rep, Cindy Guagenti, also debunked the report, calling it a "false rumor."

    Equally taken aback by the already-gaining-ground hoax was Bush himself...

    A source tells E! News the running back was informed of the rumor when a rep for the New Orleans Saints rang him with a congratulatory phone call this morning.

    "Reggie was like, 'What are you talking about?' He had no idea the rumor was even out there."

    As it happens, the rumor spread rapidly this morning when, at 4:35 a.m., a user pretending to be the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star updated a fake Facebook profile, changing the status to "Engaged" and reportedly sharing details of the would-be question popping.

    "Kim Engaged!!!" the post read. "Never put a ring in someones dessert they could SWALLOW IT!!!!"

    As it is, Kardashian, who does have a MySpace and other official website, did post a few updates this morning.

    "OMG! There are a bunch of websites reporting today that Reggie and I are engaged!" she wrote. "Apparently someone has made a fake Facebook page, pretending to be me, and the page said I got engaged!

    "Everyone has been calling Reggie and I asking us! It's not true! I don't even have a Facebook page! Maybe I should get one!"

    Earlier this morning, apparently before she caught wind of the rumor, she posted a flurry of photos of herself with the remaining Dancing With the Stars contestants, having attended an afterparty for last night's performance show at One Sunset.

    And there wasn't a diamond ring—or dessert—in sight.
