by at .  Updated at .

Khloe Kardashian has a few thoughts one of the most persistent and surprising celebrity gossip rumors we've heard in awhile.

Actually, you could say Khloe Kardashian has only one thought about it. And this thought is comprised of three letters.

Earlier this week, the world wide web was abuzz with talk that Khloe and Tristan Thompson are engaged.

Yes, engaged.

Despite the fact that Thompson has cheated on Khloe a minimum of two times, one of which involved intercourse with another woman when Khloe was in her third trimester of pregnancy.

With their baby True.

So what prompted this ongoing speculation over Khloe and Tristan's romantic status? A lot of things, really.

The fact that the two have been spending almost all of quarantine together, for starters. And not begrudgingly.

Posting photos of each other on social media and sending each other very sweet messages ... couple stuff.

And not cute new couple stuff. Like, forever couple stuff.

Heck, Thompson gushed over Khloe just last month as if the two celebrities had been married for a decade.

Wrote the professional basketball player, to the public:

"I thank God for the beautiful and loving woman you are to everyone, especially our daughter True."

Then, just a few days ago, Khloe was spotted out in public with a giant diamond ring around her left ring finger.

That's what got the engagement ball rolling, and for good reason. It is a YUGE diamond on her finger after all.

Could it really be?

Could these two have done a total 180 from amicable co-parents and nothing more to head over heels in love?

Could Tristan really have popped the question, makiing the occasion of her 36th birthday even more magical?

And could Khloe really have said yes?!?

Simply put... and sadly put ... no.

Not according to Khloe at least.

"Wait... what? lol," the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Tweeted after these rumors reached a fever pitch.

"I just came online and I'm even confused lol," she tweeted next, seemingly addressing the romance rumors.

"Basically my daily thoughts about 2020," she said (and that really is true, and funny), before adding for real:

"But for real... wtf lol people just be talking."

We don't believe she "just got online" and was stunned by the speculation, given the events of the last few months.

In addition to his declarations of love and their obvious coupledom, everyone around her has been building it up.

There's been a concerted, public effort to redeem Tristan in the eyes of the public, with Kim Kardashian leading it:

So, to be fair, Khloe, "people just be talking" but you and those in your orbit have been giving them a lot to talk about.

You're with Tristan all the time these days, which is your choice and which is amazing for your shared daughter.

Don't get us wrong. It's great. But of course it's gonna lead to quite a few questions and celebrity news stories.

Khloe is Unrecognizable (Again)

Might the engagement talk be absurd and premature? Yes.

But something is happening between these two, right?

There's a giant diamond rign on her finger too, right??

Smiling with True

You can see how one might think an engagement took place is our point. Though a source has told E! News that while things are "going very well" between Khloe and Tristan, they are not engaged.

This is an outlet that really only reports on Kardashian-related items with the permission of those family members, too.

Khloe Kardashian Shines in the Confessional

"Khloe seems very happy with where things are right now. He seems committed and has made changes," the insider said. 

"The time they have had together during quarantine has been very special and meaningful."

"Obviously Khloe is hesitant and is taking it very slow."

Nothing about Khloe's decision making has ever been obvious, but we wish her all the best with her baller beau.

We suggest an ankle monitor, though.
