In case you haven't heard the news, Ariana Grande and Chris Brown have recorded a duet together by the name of "Don't Be Gone Too Long;" quite the coincidence of a name considering they've had to postpone its release because he's gone away to jail. Anyway, now that the two singers are both reportedly single — Ariana and The Wanted's Nathan Sykes broke up late last year, while Chris and on-again/off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran are off at the moment — the rumor mill's a'churning that they're giving romance a try with each other.

According to RumorFix, "sparks flew" between the two singers, and they "started hooking up soon after they teamed up." While it wouldn't be the first time either of 'em tried their hands at a relationship with a person they collaborated with, we're here to announce that these rumors are FALSE. With Chris having to deal with the law and rehab, there's no time for a romantic tryst. When he gets out, though… we guess time will tell.

In awesome Ari news, the 20-year-old singer/actress just teased about 30 seconds of a new song titled, "They Don't Understand," via livestream. Not a lot because, in her words, she "can't play anymore because I'll get in trouble," but it's something. Listen here.

Guess Mariah Carey's not such a big fan of Ariana Grande…
