See photos of the two over the years:
"I will freely admit: My relationship with B.J. Novak is weird as hell," Kaling told InStyle magazine in 2015. "He is not my boyfriend, but he is not my best friend. I guess you could describe our relationship as a 'romantically charged camaraderie with loud arguments,' but I don't think Facebook would accept this as a new status."
Novak said on Watch What Happens Live in in 2016 that he and Kaling have "a great relationship of friendship and support and amusing each other."
He also told Glamour that year, "I think Mindy and I have broken every rule possible and still have maintained a connection. So I guess I'm either the worst person to ask for advice or I'm the best person to give some Zen advice that it will all just work out and don't worry too much about rules and just worry about the quality of the person that you're with."
