WATCH: Nick Jonas shuts down those Selena Gomez dating rumours!

2015-07-24 07:00

Los Angeles - Nick Jonas admits it was "nice to connect" with Selena Gomez again.

The Chains hitmaker, who had an on-again, off-again relationship with the 23-year-old star for two years until 2010, recently had dinner with the brunette beauty, but insists they have no plans to get back together.

The 22-year-old heartthrob said: "We kind of ran into each other a couple of weeks ago, like walking in Venice [California]. We were both with separate groups of friends and we ran into each other.

"I put a dinner together with a bunch of really great people, like the Haim girls, who I love. They're awesome. They're the best. It was a big group of people and we all had a great time. We connect in that sense. It was nice to connect and just catch up. I'll leave it there!'

The Jealous hitmaker, who recently split from longterm girlfriend Olivia Culpo, also thinks Tinashe is "dope," but wouldn't consider dating her even though she previously admitted she thinks he's "hot."

He told Capital FM's Max Akhtar in London: "She's dope. She's kinda like the homie. Does that make sense?

"I don't know. Because we worked together and we're just friends, it feels like it's that. I wouldn't want to mess that up! I would want to be friends with her, I think."
