A recent tabloid report stated that the 47-year-old rocker and Kristi Lynn Gibson had recently gotten engaged on the Fourth of July. For the past 16 years, Gibson has been Michael’s on-and-off girlfriend and is the mother of their daughters – Raine Elizabeth, 10, and Jorja Bleu, 5.
“No. We are not engaged yet,” Michaels said Wednesday on CBS’ Early Show. “We’re a work in progress.”
Michaels appeared on the show to promote his new album, Custom Built, which was released on July 6.
The ring that Gibson has been spotted wearing is described by Michaels as “a promise ring . . . a friendship ring, with benefits. That’s what we call it.”
