Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons: I am not engaged to boyfriend
Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons has denied rumours that he is engaged to long-term boyfriend Todd Spiewak.

According to reports, Jim Parsons is the highest-paid gay actor on TV, after signing a new three-year contract for the popular CBS sitcom this month.
Parsons has been nominated for seven Emmys for his role on the series, and has won three, as well as a Golden Globe Award.
