Hayden Panettiere won't be saying "I do" anytime soon, despite what her recent bling might imply.

The Nashville star rebuffed rumors that she is engaged to boxer boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko. Speculation ran rampant last week when she was photographed at the ABC upfront party wearing a dazzling ring on her right hand. At Sunday's Billboard Music Awards, Panettiere didn't full-out deny she was engaged, but pointed to her hand and said "no ring" when asked by a reporter, according to E! News.

Although the couple did not walk the red carpet together, Panettiere did confirm her boyfriend's attendance. "He's wandering," she said. "He's taking my friends out back."

The Nashville season finale airs Wednesday at 10/9c on ABC.
