Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus are not getting back together.
In a new interview, the 20-year-old Jonas debunked the story that the couple, who dated back in 2007 when they weren't even old enough to drive, rendezvoused at Patys Restaurant in Toluca Lake, California, last week. The timing of the dinner was particularly interesting since Cyrus and her actor fiancé Liam Hemsworth were reportedly going through a rough patch.
"I read it online actually and I was like, 'Oh, this is interesting that I met up with her cause I'm at the studio,'" Jonas said of the alleged meeting as he appeared with his brothers Joe and Kevin on Ryan Seacrest's L.A. radio show on Tuesday. "I didn't meet up with her, but we're friendly we have a good relationship. I'm happy for her and Liam." He added with a laugh: "I think it's one of those things there's a lot of people that look like me I guess in that particular town, so maybe they're running around with Miley."
The reunion was reported after two fans tweeted about the sighting, then promptly deleted their accounts. However, an employee told omg! that the incident didn't happen.
Cyrus, 20, fired back at the rumors last week.
"I literally haven't seen Nick Jonas in years," Cyrus wrote on Twitter last Wednesday. "Don't believe everything you read folks. Why are magazines allowed to publish straight bull s**t."
She continued: "Look at my finger [with an engagement ring]. Idiots. I couldn't have 'ran' into anyone because I haven't went to eat out in public in weeks because of the amount of paparazzi outside my house. #shorthairrepunzel."

As Jonas explained to Seacrest, he also sometimes gets upset by the public speculation about his love life.
"It kind of bothers me. It bothers me a little bit," said Jonas, whose other ex-girlfriends include Selena Gomez and Delta Goodrem. "I'm a pretty private person and the things I give away, I give away in music most of the time so it's tough. You've just got to make sure that your friends are there for you and try to keep important things private."
However, the youngest JoBro has recently been involved with another reunion, and that's the one between him and his brothers. The trio released the video for their new single, "Pom Poms," and revealed dates for a summer tour on Tuesday. It's their first new music in three years.
