Lorde & Jack Antonoff Got Cozy, But She Says They’re Not Dating
“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 tweeted. “Those relationships are deeply important and sacred. With that said, I’m not seeing anyone. lol.”
And that was that. But then the 21- and 33-year-olds were seen looking quite cozy in the “Green Light” singer’s hometown of Auckland, New Zealand, recently and the rumors started swirling yet again.

A source told People magazine, however, “There’s nothing going on between Ella [Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor, Lorde’s real name] and Jack. There’s not any type of romantic situation. They’re just friends — they really are just friends.”
But you never know with sources — sometimes they’re 100% accurate, and sometimes they’re pretty far off. While Jack was the one who denied the relationship rumors the first time, this time Lorde was the one who took it upon herself to shut down the speculation once and for all.
“Did you date Jack?” a fan asked her during a recent live stream.
“Guys, no!” she replied. “I need to…guys. Never. No. Jack and I are not dating for the last time. But I love him. He’s awesome. But we’re not dating! Please!”

Ever heard of a hug between friends? Yep — pretty sure that’s what was happening at the time the paparazzi snapped those ~incriminating~ pictures.
