Some clever editing pulled a fast one over some fans’ eyes.
After three months of speculation, U.S. Olympian Usain Bolt has officially shot down rumours of his engagement to longtime girlfriend Kasi Bennett. He tells ITV’s “Lorraine” that Snapchat photos purporting to show Bolt and Bennett’s engagement were, in fact, edited by another user to trick fans.
He says the two were just on vacation, but gives props to the editor for fooling so many people: “I’m not engaged. Me and my girlfriend went on a trip to Bora Bora. Somebody edited pictures on my Snapchat and said ‘she said yes’ with a ring. It was well done though.”
But that doesn’t mean there isn’t pressure! The nine-time gold medallist revealed that his mother is clamouring for her son to tie the knot, saying “My mum’s pressuring me.”
