The source of this claim is a TikTok video. After doing research, I found that this claim is unsupported by any legitimate source. According to Rose Hanbury herself, a relationship between the two is nonexistent. This claim is false, and should be categorized as misinformation.

I think you did a good job. There is no more primary source than the person in question themselves, and the fact that no legitimate source backs this claim means it's very likely to be false.
