    However, she is believed to be seeing Mario Ho, the son of Hong Kong gambling magnate Stanley Ho.

    Ho had sparked rumours that the two were engaged with another Instagram post on Dec 30 in 2015.

    In it, he wrote: “Beyonce told me if I like something, I should put a ring on it. Well, I liked it so I put my ring on it ?? welcome to Macau, princess Kimmy.”

    The couple was also seen spending Valentine’s Day in Paris last year. Ho posted a photo of their hands on Instagram the day after, showing them wearing new rings.

    He wrote: “I want to say she’s one in a million, but that’s statistically idiotic because then there’d be 7000 of her in the world.

    “Therefore, what do you do when you find the ‘one in 7 billion’? You “tie her down” with an even nicer ring.”

    Photos posted later showed the couple attending the Uefa Champions League football match between Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea.
