Josh Groban is not dating “I Kissed A Girl” singer Katy Perry, according to the tenor’s rep.
“Josh and Katy are very close friends and hang out,” Groban’s rep told People.
Earlier in the week, a host of Web sites, including Perez Hilton and the Chicago Sun Times’ entertainment column, reported that the two musicians were involved, but not so says the rep.
“They are not a couple,” Groban’s rep added.
In related news, Groban is reportedly at home and suffering from a cold, according to a blog he posted on his official Web site last week, while Katy Perry is on tour promoting her debut album, “One of the Boys.”
