Well, that didn't take long.
The obit had barely been written on Kim Kardashian's relationship with NFL star Miles Austin before she was linked to notorious hip-hop star Chris Brown. Just one little thing: Is it true? Is Kardashian texting Brown, as it were?
No, a source close to Kardashian star tells E! News, refuting Monday's breathless item on MediaTakeOut.com. (For what it's worth, a source close to Brown was said to have said otherwise to the hip-hop site.)
But enough with sources: What do the alleged love birds have to say for themselves?
"I literally laughed out loud at these dating rumors today! Come on now MTO," Kardashian tweeted from Milan, where she's wrapping up a European publicity tour for Keeping Up With Kardashians. "I literally can't keep up anymore,not true!"
Brown's Twitter feed has been mum on the report.
Maybe he didn't know he was dating Kardashian, and had no idea he was supposed to be denying it?
