As soon as Dexter costars Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter announced their real-life marriage was over, the rumors began.

The internet was flooded with claims that Hall has been romancing Julia Stiles, who plays his love interest on the hit Showtime series.

So, what's the real deal? Read on to find out…

Stiles insists she and Hall are not seeing each other.

"I have absolutely nothing to do with the split between Michael and Jennifer," Stiles says in a statement released by her rep. "We are good friends and enjoyed working together. This is a personal matter between them, and we should respect their privacy. Although I too prefer to keep my private life, private—I felt compelled to dispel the rumors I was somehow the cause for this matter."

Hall and Carpenter told Entertainment Weekly early this week that they were divorcing after almost two years of marriage, explaining that they have "been separated for some time."
