Rebel Wilson, Mickey Gooch Jr. keep stoking those dating rumors

Rebel Wilson isn't crushing those Mickey Gooch Jr. dating rumors, and neither is he.

In fact, the comedians seem to be fueling the fire.

The breakout "Pitch Perfect 2" star has been spending quite a bit of time with the stand-up comic, and both of them have been showcasing their hangout sessions on social media.

On Sunday, Wilson posted more snapshots -- this time of their tennis match and "pre-match drinks."

After that, they were spotted having dinner at New York's Beauty & Essex, E! News reported.

"They were definitely acting like a couple. Not too much PDA but hand holding and a kiss now and then. No cocktails, just drank water," an insider told the site.
