Norman Reedus Shoots Down Emily Kinney Dating Rumors With Awesome Tweet
Earlier this week, Us Weekly kicked off the rumors that Norman Reedus and Emily Kinney, former co-stars on The Walking Dead, were dating. The relationship was reportedly being kept under wraps by the couple, although there wasn’t any real evidence for it other than Reedus attending Kinney’s music gigs and hanging out with her at fan conventions. So it’s not really a big surprise to learn that the rumors about their relationship have been greatly exaggerated.
Sorry, Daryl-Beth shippers, Reedus and Kinney are just friends. A rep for Norman Reedus formally denied the rumors to MTV News, stating that the rumors never had any truth to them.
But Reedus was quick to issue his own denial, in the form of an awesome tweet that pokes fun at how the media immediately assumes that any two people hanging out together must be a couple.
“New couple alert,” Reedus tweeted, alongside a picture of himself with The Terminator himself, Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The picture is from the CMT Awards last week, as Reedus and Schwarzenegger both attended the ceremony. The pair was drinking beers in the audience (because of course they were) which, by Us Weekly standards, probably means they’re going to be married soon.
Seriously though, Norman Reedus is awesome, and this was pretty much the perfect response to the media whirlwind.
