Tila Tequila’s Latest Foray Into Fake Relationships For Press


We’ve come to expect most lines out of Tila Tequila’s mouth to be utterly bogus, so claims that her engagement to Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson is fake — and only being used to drum up publicity! — sound about right to us.

Tila’s ex Courtenay Semel, daughter of Yahoo’s ex-chief (and the only reason she’s a semi-boldface name), says the impending nuptials of these two are a fraud.

Within hours of Tequila and Johnson announcing at the Famous Stars and Straps party in L.A. that they’re engaged to be married, Semel came out blasting them as frauds…

“They don’t even speak,” Semel told us yesterday. “Casey can’t stand Tila. They’ve only spoken once, and they’re doing this as a publicity stunt to get back at me.”

But what about that rock that the Band-Aid-empire offspring supposedly proposed with?

Semel says the ice is fake and is a meaningless accessory that Johnson grabbed from her jewelry box.

Costume jewelry? How dreadful.
