But Steven Tyler has swiftly denied that his engagement with fiancee Erin Brady is over.
The ageing rocker has hinted that the couple were going through a tough time, but are still committed to one another.
Still together: Steven Tyler has denied that he has split with fiancee Erin Brady but has seemingly admitted that they are going through a rough patch
Allegations that the pair had split first appeared on The New York Post.
The newspaper stated that Tyler, who went sober in the mid 1980's, wanted to work on his sobriety ahead of his tour with Aerosmith.
Proposal: The couple got engaged last year during the Christmas period
'Just as any couple goes through trials and tribulations in a relationship, Steven and Erin are asking for their privacy at this time. They are engaged to be married and each is committed to their sobriety.'
Tyler proposed to Brady in December last year and this March the rocker said that their wedding planning was going swimmingly.
'I thought either [Hawaii] or Phuket [in Thailand],' he told Life & Style.
'I'm all about writing "I love you" on a beach and surprising somebody. It will be somewhere, but it's going to be way over-the-top romantic.'

A message on the website of the company who looked after the couple confirmed that Tyler had indeed been involved in a blessing, though wouldn't expand any further.
The short statement on Kuhina's homepage simply read: 'Yes Reverend Alalani did do a blessings for Steven Tyler but she will not say details.'
And, though they would not expand any further, the company's admission that 'We specialize in simple to elegant Maui beach weddings and vow renewals with photography', was enough to reinforce any assumptions about the ceremony.
Of the ceremonies on offer, the most expensive (the Kuhina elegance wedding) includes conch shell blowing and a traditional Hawaiian chant (both upon request), a videographer, photography, a special charter for up to 20 people and lots more.
Tyler proposed to Brady over the festive period last year.
After news of their engagement broke it was claimed that the American Idol judge's children, who include actress Liv, 35, and model sister Mia, 33 were 'furious' there were not made aware that their father had proposed until after the news was made public.
While Erin has revealed that when they first got together she told Tyler she wouldn't tolerate bad behaviour.
Erin said: 'I just said, 'Hey listen, if you play, I'm gonna play.' He didn't really like it when he was on the other side of that scenario.'
Brady, who is 25 years his junior, will be his third wife - they have been together since 2006.
The Rocker's first marriage was to Andy Warhol model Cyrinda Fox lasted from 1978 to 1987.
The pair had a daughter together, Mia, who followed her mother's footsteps into modelling.
