'Third wheeling' Nick Jonas is not in a relationship with anyone, he says

Nick Jonas is not in a relationship. Take it from the man himself.

The former boy bander let it fly Tuesday on Twitter, apparently after seeing a story linking him to a "mystery blonde" who was described as a "Kate Hudson look-alike." Oh yeah, in another paparazzi shot from the same dinner, she could be seen walking out of the restaurant holding hands with the other guy in their party.

So take notes, kids: About nine months after splitting up with two-year girlfriend Olivia Culpo, 23-year-old Nick is still flying solo.

He's not in a relationship with Kendall Jenner.

He's not in a relationship with Lily Collins.

And he's not in a relationship with Kate Hudson, even though he told Complex that they "had an unbelievable connection as two humans who just admire things about each other, and [saw] something in each other that's beautiful" — and wouldn't tell the reporter whether they'd had sex.
