On Thursday, rumors began circulating on the web that [artist id="2814953"]Soulja Boy Tell'em[/artist] had gotten engaged to model/ video star Rosa Acosta — according to Acosta's manager and a source in Soulja Boy's camp, the rumors are false.
Acosta's manager, Charles Garner, told MTV News on Friday (September 25) that the rumors began after the pair was seen hanging out together in photos on the model's Web site. In the photos, Acosta is seen wearing what looks like an engagement ring — however, her manager said the ring wasn't a gift from Soulja Boy, but her mother. A source in Soulja Boy's camp also told MTV News that the rumors are untrue.
"So the story is that the proposal is false," Garner said in an e-mail to MTV News. "Miss Acosta is still very much single. She was in L.A. filming the Chris Brown video (featuring Lil Wayne and Swizz Beatz) with several other models. Soulja Boy was in L.A. He's been with friends with Rosa for awhile and asked if she and the other girls wanted to go to dinner.
"So he took her and four other girls to dinner, [during] which some playful pictures were taken as 'behind the scenes' for Miss Acosta's Web site. The ring she has on her finger is a ring that was given to her by her mother about three or four years ago and it was not given to her by Soulja Boy. The picture that everyone has up is a harmless picture where he's kissing her on the cheek. And there's about four other pictures where you see him at the table with her and the other models and he's hugging everybody."
In response to the rumors, Soulja Boy simply tweeted "LOL."
