The Only Way Is Essex star Lucy Mecklenburgh has insisted she and The Wanted singer Max George are not an item and that their relationship was "never official."
The TOWIE cast member told the latest issue of OK magazine: "He's single and I'm single - we're not an item. He can do what he wants, so I feel bad that he's getting bad press for cheating on me when we're not together. There are no hard feelings."
Max caused a stir earlier this month when reports surfaced that he'd hooked up with Simon Cowell's ex Jasmine Lennard while he was still thought to be dating Mecklenburgh.
Lucy continued: '"Me and him have never been official. We met up a few times, we had a laugh and we've been in contact. We're both single and that's the way we wanted to keep it.
"We never got to be at the relationship stage. We just got on and went out a few times."
The 22-year-old reality starlet added: "It was just quite friendly and flirty. We met up a few times. We liked each other, but we're both really busy. He's in a different country most of the time.
"I think we both knew there was never going to be anything that came out of it. It was very innocent."
