TV host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres recently shared on Instagram her reaction to the circulating reports that singer Justin Bieber and “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star Kourtney Kardashian are dating. Some of DeGeneres’ followers found her post funny while the others expressed disbelief that Bieber and Kardashian are in a romantic relationship.

DeGeneres has photoshopped a captured image of Bieber and Kardashian during a night out at The Nice Guy in West Hollywood last October. In the photoshopped image, the 57-year-old “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” host is in the center between the rumoured couple.

“We’re just friends, everyone,” DeGeneres posted on her Instagram account theellenshow as a caption to the shared image. TMZ reports Kardashian denied that she is hooking up with Bieber and insisted that the two of them are just hanging out with groups of people.

However, unnamed sources, who are close to Bieber, revealed to TMZ that the fling between the 21-year-old Canadian singer and Kardashian started last October after the two ran into each other at The Nice Guy in West Hollywood. “He’s single, she’s single and they’re just having a good time. Nothing serious,” an unnamed source shared.

Meanwhile, another unnamed source revealed to People that Bieber and Kardashian were almost inseparable during their night out. The source shared that Bieber and the 36-year-old reality TV personality were “super touchy feely” while smoking on the restaurant’s patio together.

In another People report, Bieber was once again spotted at The Nice Guy on Tuesday night following his guest performance on “The Voice” Season 9 finale. An unnamed source revealed that Kardashian’s younger sister Kendall Jenner was also at the celebrity hotspot, but the two arrived and left separately.

Bieber did a piano performance of the single “Sorry” from his fourth studio album titled “Purpose.” The source further shared that Bieber and Jenner interacted for some time inside the restaurant but it was “just as friends” and the two were “more chill.”

The report further added that Bieber and Jenner has been close acquaintances since Bieber was a guest in Jenner’s 20th birthday celebration at The Nice Guy last November and the two have also spend a weekend together at the 2015 Coachella festival.
