Los Angeles Lakers forward Luke Walton said he is not dating pop singer Britney Spears.
No, the speculation on Britney Spears dating LA Lakers forward Luke Walton is not true. The athlete came to denial Thursday April 12th, saying in a statement quoted by AOL, "The rumors aren't true."
"I'm sure Britney is a great person. I don't even know her. I have a girlfriend right now. I'm in a relationship. I'm very happy with my relationship. I don't know where it's all started, but none of it is true," Luke explained, while went on saying, "If I was living in Milwaukee, this wouldn't have happened. It's definitely an L.A. thing."
Spears was rumored to be involved with Walton last week after the pop star was spotted courtside at a number of Lakers games. Rumors on the street say the singer has been trying to keep her affection for Walton under wraps.
In fact, Walton is now dating Bre Ladd, a former University of Arizona volleyball player.
