BUZZ: Are Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova Finally Getting Engaged?
The couple spark new rumors of a wedding after being spotted at a high-end jewelry shop in Paris
Enrique Iglesias, 34, and tennis player Anna Kournikova, 28, who’ve been dating on and off for almost eight years, were spotted Thursday afternoon at the Cartier Champs-Elysees boutique in Paris – once again prompting speculation the longtime couple may be getting married.
The pair spent 40 minutes inside the high-end jewelry store, but it’s not known if they walked away with a new bauble for Kournikova.

Though Kournikova has dodged engagement rumors in the past – she told PEOPLE in April 2008 that she was “never getting married” – Iglesias has been vocal about his desire to marry her.
“I always try, but she pays me no attention,” Iglesias told reporters a couple of days later after Kournikova made her comments.
Rumors circulated in 2004 that the pair got married in a secret ceremony in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – Kournikova was photographed wearing a wedding band on her ring finger at the time – but the reports proved not to be true.
The couple continued to face speculation in May 2007 when Iglesias told a Swedish newspaper, “We’re divorced. I am single now, but that’s okay. I don’t mind being alone.” He later retracted his quotes and told reporters it was simply a joke.
