The One Tree Hill actress took to Instagram to dispel the rumours, after the internet began to speculate after she shared a picture of the couple’s trip to Paris.

Rumours began almost immediately, with plenty online speculating that Bush’s hand placement was strategic to hide an engagement ring.

However, over the weekend, People reports that the actress took to Instagram to let everyone know that she has “no ‘news'” on the engagement front.

“But wouldn’t you put your hands all up in her [Harris’] jacket if you could??” she wrote in a now deleted Instagram story of her flashing her left hand, her ring finger bare. “(To be clear you can’t because boundaries, but I’ll continue to do it for you because I’m just generous like that).”

She posted several more pictures to her Instagram story, including another from their trip to Paris of her hugging her girlfriend.

“I just wanna squeeeeeeeeeze her,” she wrote.

”I get that it’s new for y’all to see me so happy and so embodied. It’s new for me too. How lucky am I,” she continued in another slide of her and her athlete partner.

As her final slide in the series, Bush included an image of her holding up the peace sign while holding onto her luggage, the only ring visible being a small gold band on her pinkie.

”I hope TikTok can relax now. Travel on, friends,” she wrote alongside the image.
