Rihanna Denies She's Dating Ashton Kutcher

Asking a question about a celebrity’s personal life can often be a dicey transition. Whether because they prefer privacy or would simply rather talk about their current projects, a fair portion of famous faces react rather poorly to gossip-fueled queries. Luckily, there are still some brave souls willing to try.
During a press conference for Battleship, a daring young reporter asked Rihanna if she thought Ashton Kutcher might come visit her while in the UK. Rumors have been swirling for the past week about the two since Radar Online spotted the pop star showing up in the middle of the night at the actor’s house and leaving around four in the morning. To be perfectly honest, I raised my eyebrow too, but if Rihanna is to be believed, the pair definitely aren’t dating. Here was her response…
"I'm happy and I'm single, if that's what you're really asking."
No doubt conspiracy theorists and Chatty Kathys will likely read her words as not a straight-up denial, but really, given the overwhelming lack of evidence, I’m inclined to think there’s probably nothing going on. After all, Kutcher’s proven in the past he’s not exactly adept at hiding affairs, and if she has been making a habit of showing up at weird hours, we would have heard about it before last week.
I will choose to believe they’re friends until I hear otherwise. As for you, feel free to speculate wildly and without consequence.
