Justin Timberlake’s spokesperson has shot down fresh rumors he’s dating actress Olivia Wilde after they were spotted celebrating a mutual friend’s birthday together in New York.
The “SexyBack” hitmaker recently co-hosted a dinner party for his pal at his barbecue restaurant Southern Hospitality and Wilde was among those in attendance, mingling with the singer/actor and other guests.
It is the second time in as many months the newly single stars have been spotted out together, but Timberlake’s representative insists there is nothing romantic between the two.
His rep tells People.com, “They are friends and are not romantically involved, nor is Mr. Timberlake romantically involved with anyone.”
The pair was first linked in April, just weeks after the singer/actor split from Jessica Biel, and Wilde filed for divorce from Italian prince Tao Ruspoli.
At the time, Olivia Wilde dismissed reports of a budding romance with Timberlake, tweeting, “Cool it honeybadgers. We are just friends and have been for years.”
