AceShowbiz - Lorde has set the record straight on those dating rumors surrounding her and longtime working partner Jack Antonoff. The British songstress did an Instagram Live on Thursday, February 22, where she revealed whether or not she's dating the music producer and Lena Dunham's ex-boyfriend.
"Guys, no!" Lorde, whose real name is Ella Yelich-O'Connor, exclaimed with a laugh. "Guys, never, no... Jack and I are not dating, for the last time," the 21-year-old songstress stressed. "But I love him, he's awesome," she clarified. "But we're not dating! Please!"
Lorde and Jack have a longtime working relationship. The Fun. lead guitarist has penned 10 songs for her sophomore album, "Melodrama", which was nominated for Album of the Year at the 60th annual Grammy Awards late last month.
Despite her denial, Jack seemed to be quite comfortable when he was spotted cuddling up with Lorde during their recent outing in her hometown of Auckland, New Zealand. The songstress and the handsome musician, who is 12 years her senior, sure looked like a couple during their PDA-filled stroll.
Lorde wrapped her arms around Jack at one point and they even walked together arm-in-arm during the day out. The pair looked like they had a great time as they shared a hug and flashed huge smiles on their faces.
The outing came just a month after Jack insisted he was single and didn't date Lorde after his split from Lena. Taking to his Twitter account, the musician wrote, "Normally I would never address rumors but I resent having the most important friendships and working relationships in my life reduced to dumb hetero normative gossip." He added, "Those relationships are deeply important and sacred," before concluding his post, "With that said, I'm not seeing anyone. lol."
