Reports recently surfaced that singer Nick Jonas was dating English actress Lily Collins. The duo have been friends for a long time, but Us reported that their relationship has turned into something more.
The pair reportedly had a date at a bowling alley in Los Angeles before taking a ski trip to a resort in Mammoth Lakes, Calif. The magazine claimed their romance is “not exclusive” yet.
However, the actress’ famous father Phil Collins told Yahoo! that the two are just pals.
“I’m not sure what Nick looks like,” the musician said. “But Lily called me the other day and she was in Mammoth where all this was happening. ‘I’m here with a friend,’ she told me, and said, ‘It’s not serious. It’s just friends.'”
Jonas has been linked to several famous females, including Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, and Delta Goodrem. He dated Olivia Culpo for two years. Most recently he was rumored to have dated Kate Hudson.
He recently told Complex magazine that he isn’t in a relationship: “My current situation is that I’m very much single, but I’m trying to be as open to people who can inspire me in some way.”
When asked about a romance with Hudson, he explained:”Out of my best effort to respect her and her privacy, I’m not going to say if we had sex or not. But we did have a beautiful connection. Even now I have so much admiration and respect. She’s amazing.”
Collins has dated actors Jamie Campbell Bower, Zac Efron and Taylor Lautner.
In related news, Phil Collins has reunited with his third wife, Orianne Cevey, after splitting in 2006 because they had “grown apart.” He told Billboard magazine: “I’m actually back with my third wife – I haven’t really talked about it. We’ve been together for a while, and nobody’s noticed.”
