The Chicago Sun-Times said Friday Bieber, 18, and Gomez, 19, were recently seen browsing for engagement rings.
The newspaper reported those close to the young couple are "convinced" they plan to take their relationship to the next level after dating for more than a year.
However, Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, told UsMagazine.com the report is "complete bull [expletive]" and said Bieber's representatives are "laughing" at the speculation.
RICH ROSS: Rich Ross has announced he quit his post as chairman of Hollywood's Walt Disney Studios after less than three years.
"I no longer believe the chairman role is the right professional fit for me," The Wall Street Journal said Ross wrote in an e-mail to employees Friday. "For that reason, I have made the very difficult decision to step down as chairman of The Walt Disney Studios, effective today."
Ross did not indicate what his future plans are.
The newspaper reported Ross' announcement comes shortly after Disney admitted it expects to lose $200 million on the recent box-office dud "John Carter," which cost more than $250 million to make and $100 million to market.
Disney Chairman and Chief Executive Robert Iger thanked Ross in a separate statement for "his countless contributions throughout his entire career at Disney." Iger said he expects Ross "will have tremendous success in whatever he chooses to do next."
Ross previously ran the Disney Channel for more than a decade, overseeing a successful programming slate that included the wildly popular "Hannah Montana."
'GLEE:' The cast of the American television show "Glee" has become the first act to place 200 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Columbia Records said.
The stars of the music-themed series first appeared on the U.S. record chart in 2009 with their version of Journey's classic "Don't Stop Believin'."
In late 2010, the "Glee" cast topped The Beatles' record of 71 entries on the Hot 100. The ensemble marked another milestone in 2011, when their 113th entry beat Elvis Presley's record of 108 entries, officially making them the record-holder for most entries in Billboard's 54-year history.
Contributing to the "Glee" cast's landmark 200 entries is their recent version of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know," which sold 170,000 tracks in two weeks.
To date, "Glee" has sold 43 million songs and more than 12 million albums worldwide.
