So, Norman Reedus and Emily Kinney really aren't dating, you guys.

Even though a rep for Reedus, 46, confirmed to E! News that he and his The Walking Dead co-star are not dating, the actor supplemented the denial with a tweet Wednesday that will live in Twitter infamy. 

The amazing picture, which features Arnold Schwarzenegger, was taken during last week's CMT Awards where he was spotted chugging beers during the show. We'll cheers to this tweet! Us Weekly got fans all hot and bothered from the idea of these two getting together in real life, but sadly, that just isn't the case.

Beware! Spoilers ahead.

Reedus and Kinney's characters forged an amazing bond during the fourth season of the hit series and sparked much speculation and hope that Beth would become Daryl's first love interest, not to mention a lot of fan fiction. Sadly, hopes for a post-apocalyptic romance fizzled after she was kidnapped and later killed in season 5. Sorry, Daryl-Beth shippers.

It doesn't seem like Daryl will be going down the romance path anytime soon, either, as he told E! News that he doesn't want to "shack up" just yet with another fan favorite: Carol.

"The thing is, once you do that, it's done," Reedus said. "I like all the awkward things in between that make a person and make it honest. I think that that character, once he shacks up with somebody, he's going to be with them for life. I don't want to blow my wad, so to speak, right off the bat, you know what I mean?"

Reedus dated supermodel Helena Christensen, 46, years ago, and they share a 15-year-old son together, Mingus. His most recent relationship, however, was with Cecilia Singley, 22. They haven't been photographed together since 2013, and neither of them has commented on the status of their relationship.
