Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes have been romantically linked for a while now, but the 'Baby I' singer has finally firmly denied that they are an item.
Yesterday The Wanted star hinted that they were nothing more than friends, but now Ariana herself has ruled out any doubt.
She told Access Hollywood Live: "No, no - we're not dating."

She does, however, have a lot of nice things to say about the 'Walks Like Rihanna' hitmaker.
“He’s the sweetest," she gushed. "He’s amazing. I have to say, he’s one of the most talented vocalists I’ve ever heard in my life.
"And live, all the time, he’s like, spot on."

The Sam & Cat actress also had kind words to say about the heavily under-fire Miley Cyrus, whose performance at the VMAs and new single 'Wrecking Ball' have both attracted huge levels of criticism.
"She looked like she was having the time of her life… and her music, I have to say, is next level," she delcared. "I love ‘Wrecking Ball.’"
Grande's debut album Yours Truly has this week bowed at No1 on the US Billboard album countdown, and also peaked inside the Top 10 in the UK.
Meanwhile, Nathan's bandmate Max George told EntertainmentWise that the rest of the group would never try to match-make. “I think if we tried to get involved in that, we'd mess it up for him. I think if that were to ever happen it would be down to Nathan and his charm,” he said.
