The Dancing with the Stars pro has denied allegations of a possible romance between him and the Hills star.
Recent reports claimed that the two stars were seen at Jason Scoppa’s weekly live show at the Sayers Club in Hollywood.
In addition, an insider told E! Online that they were acting very playful and flirty.
While giving a short interview to Access Hollywood on Friday about their work on DWTS, Derek’s partner Ricki Lake teased him about the dating rumors.
“What’s the deal with this?” Ricki asked, to which he replied, “I don’t read these magazines.”
“I hate to disappoint,” Derek told Ricki, shutting down any romance rumors.
