Contrary to recent rumors, Kelly Rowland is not dating English soccer star Kieran Richardson. The songbird has denied tabloid reports, insisting "I've never met this guy. It's not true. I'm not dating at the moment."
Rowland, a former member of music group Destiny's Child, was initially reported dating Richardson after he was reported spending most of his free time with her. Rumors on the street said at that time, "The two have been dating on and off for a few months now - but things are starting to heat up ... [Kieran] even hired a plane to take him to Cannes to watch Kelly perform last week. And the two spent the entire weekend together."
In related news, Rowland has set her sophomore album, titled "Ms. Kelly", for a July 3rd release date in US and July 2nd for UK release.
