The rumour mill has been ablaze recently with gossip that Katy Perry has been dating Ryan Phillippe, with reports the two were spotted getting cozy last month at Elton John’s 70th birthday bash.
That spark of a rumour never really caught fire, and now both parties are taking to social media to issue hilarious denials that they are or ever were an item.
Over the weekend, Phillippe tweeted an all-caps denial, writing: “I AM NOT DATING KATY PERRY. BARELY KNOW HER. PLEASE STOP FLYING HELICOPTERS OVER MY HOUSE. SHE IS NOT HERE.”
In a subsequent tweet, Phillippe joked about the helicopters that have apparently been hovering over his home (along with “low-flying pervs”).
On Monday, Perry herself joined in the fun with a tongue-in-cheek Twitter apology to Phillippe for the hassle the rumours have been causing.
“Hi, nice to meet you,” jokes the “Roar” singer in her tweet, “sorry about that @RyanPhillippe carry on, lol.”
