Molly-Mae Hague has squashed engagement rumours after fans were utterly convinced her boyfriend Tommy Fury was about to pop the question.
This comes after the PrettyLittleThing creative director received backlash for her comments on a podcast about wealth and being successful.
The former Love Island stars jetted to New York for New Year after boxer Tommy surprised his girlfriend with a last minute trip of a lifetime.
Fans spent days theorising online that he was going to get down on one knee during their romantic getaway.
Their millions of followers were even adamant that the proposal had happened at one point, as they spotted Molly-Mae hiding her ring finger in photos.
However, the influencer vlogged her trip on her YouTube channel, and made it quite clear that he had no intention of asking her to marry him just yet.
Whacking out her camera shortly after they landed and were tucked up in their hotel room, Molly-Mae shared her disbelief that Tommy had booked the trip for them.
She said they were walking around their home city of Manchester when he sprung the news on her, making her burst into tears.
Tommy joked that ‘it looked like we had got engaged’ as they hugged on the path.
‘I was so shocked, I did not that expect that at all. Basically it’s been a lot to take in. I feel so lucky to be here. I can’t believe my boyfriend did that for me,’ Molly-Mae said.
Hitting out at proposal speculation, she continued: ‘Also I’m getting a little bit sick and tired that every single person thinks Tommy is going to propose out here. He booked this trip two days ago, it hasn’t been planned for long at all.
‘I can promise you guys he is not proposing to me.’
A mischievous Tommy winked in the background, as his girlfriend scolded: ‘Don’t look like you are Tommy because everyone is going to be like, “Oh, he’s going to propose.”‘
Letting her fans down gently, she elaborated: ‘I’m not saying that he won’t propose at some point in the next year but I know this trip is not the one, so don’t get your hopes up.’
Molly-Mae and Tommy have been dating since they found love in the 2019 series of ITV2 reality show Love Island.
The social media star has been the talk of the internet for the past couple of days, after she appeared on The Diary Of A CEO podcast.
Molly-Mae – who is thought to be worth around £2million – has been branded ‘tone deaf’ by Twitter users when she made comments on how ‘you’re given one life and it’s down to you what you do with it.’
She said: ‘When I’ve spoken about that in the past, I have been slammed a little bit, with people saying, “It’s easy for you to say that, you’ve not grown in poverty, you’ve not grown up with major money struggles, so for you to sit there and say that we all have the same 24 hours in a day, it’s not correct.”
‘And I’m like, but technically what I’m saying is correct. We do. So I understand that we all have different backgrounds and we’re all raised in different ways and we do have different financial situations, but I do think if you want something enough, you can achieve it.’
The reality star said ‘it depends to what lengths you want to go to get where you want to be in the future,’ as she will ‘go to any lengths’ and has ‘worked my absolute a**e off to get where I am now.’
Her comments left a sour taste in the mouths of many who called her out for being ‘privileged’ and ‘ignorant’ to those who grew up in poverty.
Molly-Mae’s Wikipedia page was also vandalised, with her name being edited to read ‘Molly-Mae Thatcher.’
Molly’s reps have since rebuffed the criticism, with a statement clarifying that Molly-Mae was ‘discussing her own experience.’
Her reps said that ‘Molly is not commenting on anyone else’s life or personal situation, she can only speak of her own experience.’
They add that she ‘acknowledges that everyone is raised in different ways and from different backgrounds,’ but her comments are ‘in reference to timing, hard work and determination in her own life.’
