Celebrity No Wedding for Kournikova By Stephen M. Silverman Published on October 5, 1998 12:00 AM Share Tweet Pin Email Reports that Russian star athletes Anna Kournikova and Pavel Bure are engaged to be married are premature. In February, it was widely reported that Florida Panthers hockey player Bure, who lives in the same apartment complex as Kournikova in Miami Beach, proposed marriage to the rising tennis star at a local restaurant. But it seems that they’re far from a walk down the aisle. On her Web site, Kournikova writes that “this time the rumors have gone too far. I never said I was engaged or was planning to get married, because I have no such plans.” Bure has also denied the report in a Russian newspaper. “A wedding isn’t entering into my plans just yet,” he is quoted as saying.
