Ryan Phillippe is SO pissed off with rumours he's dating Katy Perry and the subsequent paparazzi invasion, he's gone and denied it on Twitter in caps lock and EVERYTHING.
Which is very Kanye West of him (circa 2013).
The 42-year-old Shooter star tweeted: "I AM NOT DATING KATY PERRY. BARELY KNOW HER. PLEASE STOP FLYING HELICOPTERS OVER MY HOUSE. SHE IS NOT HERE."
When a fan cheekily replied, "THATS WHAT SOME1 WHO HAS KATY PERRY IN HIS BASEMENT WOULD SAY.....", Phillippe joked back with a "shhhh".
Katy Perry then joined in by replying to the Twitter thread - could the romance ACTUALLY happen now? - and quipped: ""Can you let me out of this basement pls?
"Hi, nice to meet you, sorry bout that @RyanPhillippe carry on, lol."
Phillippe then clarified to irked and confused Perry fans that he obviously doesn't "mind people" thinking that they are a couple, he just doesn't "want low flying pervs hovering periodically."
Which is fair enough.
The reports all started when an alleged "eyewitness" claimed the actor and popstar were flirting with one another at Elton John's recent 70th Birthday party.
"They were seated at separate tables but he made his way over to her and sat down next to her," the source apparently told HollywoodLife.com.
"She was totally giggling and at one point he had his hand on her knee. Then he took off but came back late with for more flirting!"
Perry recently split from Orlando Bloom after a year of dating, while Phillippe - who has two teenage children from his former marriage to Reese Witherspoon - has broken off his engagement to fiancée Paulina Slagter.
