Austin Mahone Says He's Not Dating Selena Gomez

It appears sources who spoke with Us Weekly recently got it all wrong when it comes to Selena Gomez and Austin Mahone's relationship!

According to People, the 17-year-old "What About Love" singer has denied rumors that he and Gomez are dating.

"We're just friends," he told People. "She's really cool … I mean, I think she's really pretty but every time I'm in L.A., she's like, 'Hey you're in L.A., lets hang out,'" he added. "So it's cool."

An industry source close to both Gomez and Mahone told People the two young singers are not officially an item, but they do appear to have a very special connection.

"Maybe they are more than just friends but they are certainly not dating," the source explained. "They've been hanging out over the last few months. They have a lot of respect for each other."

What do you guys think? Is love in the air or are they "just friends?"
