April 11 (UPI) -- Katy Perry laughed off rumors Monday that she and Ryan Phillippe are dating.
The 32-year-old singer jokingly replied to Phillippe on Twitter after the 42-year-old actor angrily denied they are a couple.
Phillippe had posted a frustrated tweet the day prior after reportedly being hounded by paparazzi at home. His message followed reports he and Perry were flirting at Elton John's 70th birthday party in March.
"I AM NOT DATING KATY PERRY. BARELY KNOW HER. PLEASE STOP FLYING HELICOPTERS OVER MY HOUSE. SHE IS NOT HERE. thx," the actor wrote.

Phillippe and fiancée Paulina Slagter ended their engagement in November after five years of dating, while Perry split from boyfriend Orlando Bloom in February after more than a year together. The singer later denied rumors of hard feelings between herself and Bloom.
"HOW BOUT A NEW WAY OF THINKING FOR 2017?! U can still b friends & love ur former partners! No one's a victim or a villain, get a life y'all!" she tweeted March 2.
