Nick Jonas Denies Dating ‘Smash’ Co-Star Megan Hilty
Beleb Dirty Laundry - almost 5 years
Former Disney star Nick Jonas is denying reports that he is dating his “Smash” co-star Megan Hilty. Rumors were started when Nick played a romantic interest for Megan’s character in a guest appearance on the show. So are they dating for real? No! Reportedly, the duo were seen enjoying dinner together in New York in April, but Nick says that he is still a bachelor and is not romancing the TV actress. In a new interview with E-Online, he revealed, “We are just friends. And I’m enjoying being a single man here in New York, because my work is my priority these days.” Besides that, he only ended his ten-month relationship with Delta Goodrem back in February, so he might not have had a long enough time to recuperate following the breakup. Did you think they would make a good couple?

PHOTO: Seal, Delta Goodrem Kiss On Red Carpet
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
The divorce papers are filed, so is Seal looking to move on from his soon-to-be ex-wife Heidi Klum? After his latest red carpet outing, it seems the singer is slowly starting to get back into the dating game. Seal hit the red carpet at the 2012 Logie Awards in Melbourne, Australia, Sunday, where he shared a sweet kiss -- on the cheek -- with Australian singer Delta Goodrem. If Goodrem's name sounds particularly familiar, it's because she split from Nick Jonas earlier this year. Though it seems that Seal and Goodrem are just friends, you never know what could happen, especially now that Seal is back on the market following his January split from Klum. Klum filed official divorce papers earlier in April, requesting primary custody of the couple's four children. Seal filed divorce papers of his own days later, asking a judge for joint physical custody. "We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very muc ...
