Dear Gossips,

Figure skating champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir are so good at their jobs that they’ve become the Bella and Edward of their sport. Only, unlike Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, there was never a romantic relationship off the ice. Like Kristen and Robert though, there’s an army of truthers who’ve created a whole fantasy about them being lovers IRL. This week the truthers were delivered a big blow. 

Scott confirmed he’s engaged…and not to Tessa. Scott and Tessa received their Canada’s Walk of Fame plaques on Wednesday and during his remarks, Scott shouted out his “fiancée” – and he wasn’t referring to his skating partner:

Tessa followed up with a post, confirming that she’d be a guest at an upcoming wedding:

Scott will marry Jackie Mascarin, his first skating partner. She’s the one sitting on his right, camera left in the photo below:

As you can imagine, some people are having a hard time with this, and not just Twi-Hards. Anyone who’s ever seen them skate, especially after the last Olympics and Moulin Rouge, is into their feelings. Which…can you imagine how f-cked up that would be? To be engaged and have thousands of people, if not millions, around the world hating the fact that you’re the one and not someone else?  

Everything is going to be fine. Camila and Shawn are still together!

Congratulations Scott and Jackie! 

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
