E!, the network that airs Seacrest’s shows, reported the news Wednesday. That means it must be true, right? According to the website, the two were most recently spotted having a “romantic dinner date” in New York City.
Lima even once called Seacrest “charismatic” and “handsome.”
Seacrest and Lima reportedly started hanging out this summer in Rio during the Olympics. If his Instagram account is any indication, the two got up to all kinds of fun things.
Despite all their outings and the speculation, Us Weekly was seemingly able to confirm the two are not dating.
“[They’re] good friends,” a source told the site. “She’s still dating Julian Edelman.” (Edelman is a pro football player for the New England Patriots.)
We don’t know what to believe right now. We’ve reached out to reps for both Seacrest and Lima and will update this post accordingly.
