He may have his hat back and she may like that, but Kelsea Ballerini and Dustin Lynch are not an item.

The “Dibs” singer spoke exclusively with Cody about rising speculation she and Dustin are dating.

“We can stomp out that fire real quick. That got so out of control,” Kelsea tells us about a photo Dustin tweeted with her that’s now gone viral.

In the image, which has not been retweeted more than 500 times, Kelsea has her arms around the “Where It’s At” singer and is seen to seemingly kiss Dustin’s cheek.

But the self-professed “queen of the duckface” chalks the closeness up to mere friendship.

“I dig Dustin. We’re buds,” she goes on to say. “We saw each other before the ‘Indiepalozza’ show at [Country Radio Seminar]. And literally, so in passing, he was like, ‘Kelsea let’s take a picture.’ I was like, ‘yeah!’ All of a sudden, it’s like ‘Lyncherrini.’”

Dustin backs up Kelsea’s dating rumor squash, exclusively confirming to Cody he’ll be a single man this Valentine’s Day.

Kelsea joins Cody on CMT After MidNite in the coming weeks.
