But there’s no timeline. It’s definitely going to happen. I just don’t know when,” she added.

“There are always weird rumors going around that I’m not wearing my ring and Zac and I broke up. I don’t know what’s going on but guys, I was holding my phone with my left hand,” said the former phlebotomist said on her Instagram Story. “But ironically, when I showed my hand maybe a week and a half ago, my ring literally swung on my finger, and many of you messaged me like, ‘Don’t lose your ring!’ Well, I was in LA for a hot minute and was finally able to drop off my ring and have it custom made.”

“So yes, ironically it was my right hand in my Story, but I also just had my ring sent in to be cleaned and finally resized – it’s been about six months since I’ve had it,” she added , noting that “all is well on this front” and that she would have her ring again soon.
