The Glee alum used to hang out with the singer fairly regularly in 2011 and 2012—the year her album Red was released with liner notes for the track "22" appearing to pay tribute to the actress and three other friends, including Selena Gomez. At the time, Dianna and Taylor's friendship led to some fans speculating, or expressing hope, that their connection was more than platonic.
In a May 7 Rolling Stone interview, Dianna was asked how she felt about how the way the two were "shipped," or "made out by the media and some fans to be in a relationship."
The 37-year-old responded, "That is so interesting. I mean, there have been many stories about my dating life that are so wildly untrue. That's funny."
Also in 2012, there was also online speculation that Dianna and Taylor were involved in a love triangle with Tim Tebow. When asked about it on Jimmy Kimmel Live! at the time, the actress said that she and the NFL star shared a talent agency and that he was not her boyfriend.
When host Jimmy Kimmel asked if she was dating Taylor, Dianna replied, laughing, "No."
She added, "Wouldn't that be juicy?" and then turned to the camera, blew a kiss and said, "Hi, Taylor."
During her interview with Rolling Stone, the actress also addressed the alleged tribute to her on the singer's Red album. When noted that she is in the liner notes as one of the inspirations for "22," Dianna told Rolling Stone, "Me? Oh, if only!"
She continued, "That's more because of a friendship than being the inspiration for the song. But I would not be the person to ask about that. I cannot claim that!"
E! News has reached out to Taylor's rep for comment on Dianna's remarks to Rolling Stone and has not heard back.
