On June 15, Lucy Hale took to Instagram to make the big revelation about her love life, according to Hollywood Life. She posted an intimate photo of her and her alleged boyfriend Joel Crouse. The photo that was later taken down shows Lucy with her arm around Joel Crouse while she plants a kiss on his cheek.
The Web site notes that as soon as she uploaded the said photo on her Instagram account it sent her fans "into frenzy." The reason of her fans frenzied reaction clearly showed in the photo-- a big rock on Lucy's finger.
The photo clearly showed a ring on Lucy's ring finger giving rise to speculations about being secretly engaged to Joel Crouse. While some fans were shocked at the reports swirling around, some seemed totally annoyed.
But the photo that led to a frenzy of speculation was apparently misinterpreted. Looking at the photo closely reveals the truth. The photo is said to be reversed. The words on Lucy and Joel's t-shirts are backwards which means the photo is also "flipped," showing the ring on Lucy's right hand and not left, noted the Web site. Therefore, the Web site infers that there is "no engagement."
This is reportedly the first time "PLL" star Lucy Hale and her boyfriend Joel Crouse "came out as a couple." They were tagged as an item when they were first spotted together in April at Los Angeles Lakers basketball game.
"They are seeing each other. He is in L.A. right now to visit," a source told Us Magazine in May.
"It isn't anything serious just yet," added the source.
Meanwhile, "Pretty Little Liars" starlet has created quite a buzz around with her debut country album "Road Between" that was released on June 3. Also, Lucy celebrated her 25th birthday on June 14. Check out the reactions of some of her fans on Twitter after hearing the news about her rumoured engagement to Joel Crouse, below:
