Michele Morrone BREAKS SILENCE on rumor of dating Khloe Kardashian after PDA pics at Milan Fashion Week
MILAN, ITALY: Images of Khloe Kardashian and Michele Morrone together at the Milan Fashion Week triggered rumors that the two were dating. Morrone, 31, has now addressed these rumors and cleared the air. The charming actor, who stars in Netflix's steamy franchise '365 Days', said in a statement sent through his agent that speculations of a potential romance between him and Khloe, 38, were just that - rumors.
The actor's agent informed People in a report from Monday, September 26 that "Dolce and Gabbana asked them to take a photo at the show. Michele said she was very nice, and that was the extent of it." The source further reported that Khloe had "never met [Morrone] before" her sister Kim Kardashian's D&G event during Milan Fashion Week. "She just met him in Milan that night. They are not dating. She has no plans to see him again," the source said.
This might come as a big revelation to the many fans who previously lost it when the Italian actor shared a photo with the Good American fashion icon on his Instagram story. In the picture, Morrone can be seen closely leaning towards the side of the new mother's face, and which was taken behind the scenes at the "Ciao, Kim" collaborative show on Saturday, September 24.
The actor was holding a glass of wine at his side and was dressed in a gold silk shirt. Khloe was staring down the camera while wearing superb sunglasses. Furthermore, a video that has been going viral on Twitter purporting to be of Khloe and Michele seems to tell a different tale as they can be seen hugging at a D&G afterparty beneath the blue lights.
The breathtaking photo ignited a flurry of rumors that Khloe, who recently gave birth to her second child through surrogacy with ex Tristan Thompson, 31, may have formally moved on with the dashing Morrone. Despite his strong denials, it appears otherwise given the visuals from the fashion week.

A source claims Khloe is moving forward after breaking up with the NBA star. The reality star experienced a major setback after a nasty paternity event which resulted in Thompson being labelled the father of Maralee Nichols' newborn kid back in January.
"All she wants is for them to be healthy and happy co-parents, that's why she's forgiven him and wants her family to forgive him too. She doesn't see the point in hanging on to the negativity and anger but that doesn't mean she's letting what he did slide. They are 100% done for good," a source close to the matter told Hollywoodlife in July.
