Despite rumors that Charlize Theron and Sean Penn are engaged, it seems that tabloids just assumed that her sparkling diamond ring was given by the actor.
Engagement rumors began when the “Mad Max: Fury Road” actress was spotted wearing a diamond sparkler on her left hand at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday (July 25).
Charlize was wearing an 18-karat yellow gold Anita Ko Leaf Ring, which retails for $4,900. But sources close to the actress reveal that Theron foot the bill herself, and Sean did not pop the question with this particular ring.
Charlize Theron and Sean Penn have been dating since the end of 2013. While the couple has yet to comment about the rumored engagement, the 38-year-old actress did gush to Vogue about her relationship. She said: “Sean and I have known each other for 18 years. We were just really good friends and it’s been slow going because you are aware that you could screw that up and lose it. We had to think about it. But at the end of the day, it was somewhat effortless.”
Theron has never married, while Penn has been previously married to Madonna and Robin Wright.
