Ellen DeGeneres knows just how to make celebrities feel comfortable enough to spill the juiciest of details about their lives. NJ native Nick Jonas appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show May 9 to discuss his music, going into business with longtime friend Demi Lovato, and of course dish about his personal life. No topic was left untouched, including the dating rumors involving actress Kate Hudson. The singer opened up about his true relationship status, revealing whether he’s single or ready to mingle.
Media headlines have been going nuts about an alleged love connection brewing between the 23-year-old “Close” crooner and 37-year-old Mother’s Day star after several paparazzi pictures of them together began popping up on the Internet. The afternoon talk show host jokingly brought up Nick arriving to the 2016 Met Gala alone, while Kate showed up to the event with Lady Gaga on her arm. Ellen then asked if he was single. Nick couldn’t help but laugh, ultimately giving her an honest answer. Good news ladies: Nick is still on the market!
“You’re really single right now,” Ellen asked. “I really am,” Nick confirmed. “Yeah I am.” The crowd erupted with laughter and applause.
If you thought Ellen was going to let him get off the hook that easily, think again! The Finding Dory star smoothly asked, “So how’s Kate Hudson doing? She’s good?”
Whether or not the two were getting cozy or strictly platonic inside the Gala will remain a mystery to anyone who wasn’t in attendance, due to the heavily enforced “no phone” policy. Despite showing up to the event separately, Nick and Kate managed to hang out ahead of the star-studded fashion event.
“She’s great,” Nick said. “We had a group dinner the night before the Met Gala with lots of people and she was there and I was there.” Nick tried his best to emphasize the two were not on a romantic date together. Although she didn’t seem to buy into his answer, Ellen quickly changed the topic of conversation to a recent business decision he made with Demi regarding the LGBT community.
Celebrities that hot can be just friends, right?
