It’s been a week since Jaden Smith and Sofia Richie were seen holding hands while hanging out at the beach, sparking reunion rumors, and now, Jaden revealed if they are a couple or not! As you might know, the two have been friends for a very long time and they are even former flames so it’s no surprise fans linked them together romantically after seeing the flirty beach pics.
Besides, the model is single and ready to mingle after her split from Scott Disick as well!
But what is truly the nature of their relationship? Jaden Smith has the answer!
While on today’s episode of On Air with Ryan Seacrest, Jaden was asked about the rumor.
‘You know, I actually don’t look at the internet, so I didn’t see that,’ he admitted.
Still, upon learning about the rumor, Jaden was quick to put an end to it, making it very clear that they are just really close friends.
‘But, me and Sofia have been friends for like 10 years. We’ve been going to the beach pretty consistently for 10 years too. But, yeah, we’re just homies and we love each other and it was fun,’ he told the host.
But why would they act so loving and couple-like if they have a platonic relationship?
Well, one source has the answer!
The unnamed insider tells HollywoodLife that ‘They both laugh off these kinds of rumors and Sofia especially loves to do these kinds of things when the paparazzi are around so she probably played it up for that.’
The went on to point out that the old friends and rumored teen sweethearts were hanging out just as much and were just as close when Sofia was dating Scott Disick as well.
But, of course, the source suggests we should ‘Never say never about them dating because you never know what the future holds in life.’
