“There’s all these weird rumors circulating around that I’m not wearing my ring and that Zac and I are broken up,” Adams said.

She also captioned her video with: “Woke up to hundreds of messages asking this but y’all not gonna lie, I don’t like getting DMS putting this weird energy into the universe.”

Adams continued speaking to her audience: “I don’t know what is happening, but you guys, I was holding my phone with my left hand. But ironically enough, as I was showing my hand maybe a week-and-a-half ago, my ring was literally swinging around my finger.”

The former lead then explained that she had to get her ring resized and cleaned after six months. “Everything is good on this forefront, thank you so much for being concerned. But we’re good, we’re chilling.”

“I love that there’s so much love and support around our relationship but please don’t put unnecessary rumors/pressure on us,” the rumored host concluded.

There you have it — Adams and Clark are very much still together.
