Nick Jonas NOT Dating Lily Collins, Despite Reports
According to Perez Hilton, “Nick Jonas confirms he’s been dating Lily Collins.” The repeatedly discredited blogger then writes, “We’ve got a new EXCITING update in Nick’s love life as he was recently a guest editor for Bizarre and talked to The Sun and confirmed that he’s been dating Lily!” Perez, who reiterates that “the musical stud opened up about dating Collins,” then quotes Jonas telling The Sun, “We went out a couple of times. She is amazing. We have known each other for years, just running in the same circles.”
Gossip Cop should note that Jonas never once said they are dating or are romantically involved. He simply acknowledged that they “went out a couple of times,” as friends. Perez further quotes Jonas as saying (in generalities), “I’ve enjoyed meeting different people and spending time with people with all the cards on the table. All people need human interaction at some level. And at my age too, dating is important, getting to know yourself by meeting different people, seeing what it’s all about.”
Again, Jonas never “confirmed” he was dating Collins. He talked about hanging out with her twice, and that dating can help people learn more about themselves. Sadly, a slew of other unreliable outlets similarly misconstrued, either intentionally or not, his easy to comprehend quotes.
Still, Jonas took to Twitter on Friday to blast the inaccurate media reports. He wrote, “I’m very single y’all. That is all,” adding, “Hate when liberties are taken for headlines.” In February, when Jonas hung out with Collins and was wrongly linked to her romantically then, he similarly tweeted, “I’ve been very open about the fact that I am not in a relationship with anyone right now. I am pretty sure I am the most reliable source.”
