It seems rumors are floating around that Hunger Games heart-throb Josh Hutcherson may no longer be hungering for a girl to call his own. According to The Hollywood Gossip, Josh has been quietly dating 18-year-old ‘Victorious’ star Ariana Grande since the beginning of the year.
Josh Hutcherson is no longer hungering for a girlfriend. Why? Because he’s reportedly playing the game of love with Ariana Grande!
An insider tells Life & Style that the actor is romantically involved with Victorious star Ariana Grande. She plays Cat Valentine on that Nickelodeon sitcom.
“They’ve been seeing each other since the beginning of the year,” a source tells the tabloid, adding that Grande even attended the Los Angeles premiere of The Hunger Games with her man, but didn’t walk down the red carpet because “they’ve been trying to keep it low-profile.”
However, according to AU Business Times, sources close to the stars have shot down these rumors as being completely untrue:
Another source claims that Josh brought Ariana along for the “Hunger Games” premiere. Ironically though, Grande admitted in an interview a few weeks ago that she still had not seen the film.
“I haven’t seen it yet. I feel like a horrible friend. I feel like the worst friend in the entire world. He’s amazing,” says Ariana in an interview with OK! Magazine.
So are they or are they not dating? Gossip Cop finally dishes the deal on the rumors. A rep close to the “Hunger Games” star says that all claims are “completely untrue”. The source added that Josh and Ariana are “not dating”.
Its funny how tabloids can come up with such stories when Josh himself had admitted he still had problems searching for a girlfriend, much less one he could easily talk to.
“I don’t think I’ve had love at first sight. But, I’ve definitely had moments where I’ve seen a person, and I’m like, ‘Wow, there is something different about you, and I really want to get to know you.’ I haven’t really gained up the courage to talk to those girls. I still get a little nervous when talking to girls. Which is awful, and embarrassing, because I feel like I shouldn’t [be],” shared Josh.
So we can all breathe easy, Josh is still single!
