    Rita Ora insists she never dated Nick Jonas, despite the fact that the guy once wrote a song in which he seemed to negatively namecheck a woman named, yep, Rita.

    Sure enough, Nick and that now-infamous tune came up during the British pop star's appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live earlier this week.

    "I have heard the song and I have heard that rumor and I really don't know where it came from," Rita told host Andy Cohen. [I] never [dated him]. I actually met Nick through a friend and it was a very weird situation...because we were close, but it never went to that level and then I read the lyric and I kind of messaged him and was like, 'I have no idea where this came from. If you want to talk about it, call me.'"

    The track in question, which Nick wrote for the Jonas Brothers, was titled "What Do I Mean to You," and included the lyrics, "No need for water, Rita/You got the wine/Searching for diamonds/When I gave you the time."

    According to Rita, Nick did get back to her.

    "He was like, 'You know what, I just obviously didn't put out how I felt across to you properly.' And it was one of those situations...Regardless, we're still friends and I still have a lot of respect for him."
