Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki are NOT “totally hooking up again,” despite a new report. Gossip Cop can debunk the claim. It wasn’t true in October, when we first exclusively busted the rumor, and it’s still not true now.

The new issue of In Touch uses photos of Cuoco and Galecki at last week’s People’s Choice Awards as evidence that “it’s on” between the two co-stars. Deeming them “old flames still hot,” the magazine says the former couple is “giving it another shot.” A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “It’s still new, so they haven’t put a label on anything yet, but they’re totally together.”

“She realized her love for Johnny after her divorce,” claims the supposed source, referring to Cuoco’s split from Ryan Sweeting. “They’re taking things slow because Kaley doesn’t want to ruin their friendship if things don’t work out again.” Indeed, the tipster conveniently adds, “Kaley and Johnny have no plans to go public until they are both ready.”

That’s how In Touch thinks it can away with its claims. The magazine explains away Cuoco and Galecki’s non-romance by simply alleging it’s only going on “behind closed doors.” And when they never go public, the gossip rag can simply say it didn’t work out.

All of this also ignores two other points: Cuoco explicitly stated after the PCAs that she and Galecki are “#notdating,” and he shared New Year’s photos on Instagram with another blonde that was most definitely not Cuoco. And, despite what the tabloid rumor mill tends to think, it is possible to stay on friendly terms with an ex who also happens to be your colleague. That’s all that is going on here.
