In an interview with Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS FM radio show Monday, Jan. 6, he flatly denied the rumors.
“It just makes me laugh,” he said. “I’ve been friends with Miley for like six years. She’s a great girl…We are friends [and] we run in the same circle.”
“Are we dating? No,” he added. “I’m happily single…I’m not [looking for a relationship] right now. I’m enjoying life and traveling quite a bit…there’s no real time to find the one.”
A source told E! News that neither of them “is planning anything long-term right now,” but that they’re “just enjoying themselves.”
“They are both spontaneous, fun people, so their personalities match,” the insider explained. “They are having fun together. They have very similar outlooks. I am not sure if it has a future but they have great chemistry so for the time being they are just having fun.”
