The Jackson, Wyoming rumour mill is heating up after a local gallery tweeted an unconfirmed report that everyone’s favourite on-again/off-again couples, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, are now engaged.

LaineyGossip.com reported a Twitter post from Tayloe Piggott Gallery: “Word on the street is that Justin Timberlake proposed to Jessica Biel at the Amangani [luxury resort] last night” A New York-based publicist also tweeted “Hehe, I love that NO media outlets know about the Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel engagement. Benefits of working in PR.”

The pair began dating in 2007 and announced their break-up in March of this year, only to be back on again by July.

There’s been no official confirmation, nor any tabloid reports, of the engagement.

UPDATE: An “insider” has confirmed to Us Weekly that Timberlake did indeed propose in Jackson last month, later celebrating with family and friends at the singer/actor’s home in Montana. According to the source, the pair got back together after their three-month split with plans of tying the knot: “This was the basis for getting back together. When they reunited they had a conversation about taking the next step.”
