Just in case you were wondering if Katy Perry and Ryan Phillippe were dating: They definitely are not. 

But are they brand-new internet friends? Yes, and it’s those dating rumours that birthed a beautiful new social media friendship. 

Phillippe, aka everyone’s late 90’s teen thriller crush, took to Twitter last night to shut the situation down. 

That was on April 9. A day and a bit later, Katy saw the tweet. 

And that’s not even the best part. Shortly after that tweet, she then sent this one.

To which Phillippe replies: “Never”.
