Katy Perry and The Weeknd are not dating, despite inaccurate speculation based on the two going out to dinner together. Gossip Cop can debunk the romance rumors. We’re told they’re are just friends.

The music superstars shared a meal at Madeo in West Hollywood on Monday night, prompting many outlets to wrongly theorize about the nature of their relationship. Among the culprits is HollywoodLife, which incorrectly assumes that the two may be “a hot new couple.” The unreliable website also writes, “The Weeknd is certainly wasting no time in the aftermath of his split from Selena Gomez!”

The repeatedly discredited outlet goes on “to wonder” if Perry and The Weeknd are “the hottest new couple in Hollywood.” But instead of just wondering, Gossip Cop actually looked into the situation and we’re told by Perry’s rep that the two are only pals. In fact, E! noted that the reason Perry and The Weeknd met for dinner on Monday is because they’re considering a collaboration. “They are discussing working together,” a source told the site, which further noted that the pair was joined by a “few producer types.”

Of course, HollywoodLife has proven to know very little about the love lives of both singers involved in this story, so we’re not surprised by the webloid’s bogus speculation. Last month, Gossip Cop busted the site for falsely claiming The Weeknd was planning an “epic” marriage proposal to Gomez. Of course, the ex-couple split shortly after we debunked that misguided article.

When it comes to the “Roar” singer’s personal life, the untrustworthy blog has no more insight. Earlier this year, Gossip Cop called out the site for spreading false rumors about Perry dating Ryan Phillippe. It should also be noted, HollywoodLife consistently purports to have sources close to both Perry and The Weeknd, so shouldn’t one of these so-called “insiders” know whether or not they’re dating? Regardless, Gossip Cop can confirm that they’re not.
