Want to know how to shut down dating rumors like an absolute pro?? Take notes friends, because Katy Perry knows exactly how to address a rumor with the finesse of a runway model and the humor of a standup comedian! So, I guess the world really wants Katy Perry and Ryan Phillippe to be a thing. If you have zero idea who Ryan Phillippe is, he was once married to Reese Witherspoon! Yeah, bit of a throwback!
On April 9th it seemed Ryan had just had it up to here with the Katy Perry dating rumors and he sounded off his anger and frustration in 140 characters! Like many celebs do when confronting, confirming or denying headlines, he took to Twitter to confirm, in all caps, that he and Katy are DEFINITELY NOT A COUPLE!
“I am not dating katy perry. Barely know her. Please stop flying helicopters over my hosue. She is not here. Thx.”
A commenter felt so compelled by this tweet to respond with: “That’s what some1 who has Katy Perry in his basement would say.”
And in true Katy Perry form, she responded with this tweet: “Can you let me out of the basement please?!” Yes, yes this did in fact happen and it is internet gold!!
The dating rumors began last month after Ryan and Katy were reportedly getting cozy at Elton John’s birthday bash! Katy is newly single since her split from Orlando Bloon and Ryan was engaged for five years, but called it off this past November! The jury is out on this potential new couple. What do you think? Is this just the start of a newfound love, or is it really nothing? Also, what are your thoughts on Katy Perry’s Twitter clap-back? Sound off in the comments below!
