Retired NHL forward Sean Avery and Bravo executive vice president Andy Cohen played along with the rumor of their alleged engagement this week. 

A Twitter user asked Cohen whether or not a report by that insinuated he and Avery were prepared to tie the knot was true. The response from Cohen deferred the question to Avery:

That was followed by this tweet from the 13-year NHL veteran, which originally linked to a shirtless photo of the two draped in an American flag before it was deleted:

On his official Facebook page Wednesday, Cohen (who is openly gay) posted a response with a screenshot of the rumor, asking, "How'd they find out!?"

This all appears to be a harmless joke, though the Fame Driven "spy" claims that Avery's sexuality has been questioned for years in the league, and that Cohen and Avery have been dating for over a year-and-a-half.

Avery was known for his hard-nosed style of play and his unabashed personalty with regard to being politically correct. One of those instances got him suspended for six games and landed him in anger management.

With regard to LGBT issues, Avery has been an advocate for equal rights, recording a video back in 2011 to promote same-sex marriage for the New Yorkers for Marriage Equality Campaign.

At the moment, Avery and Cohen appear content to play along and let the world speculate.
