Emma Watson has kinda rubbished the rumor currently making waves in the gossip media that she’s dating Prince Harry in a tweet sent out on Sunday.
The dating rumor originated from an Australian site Woman’s Day, who quoted an alleged ‘insider as saying that Harry was ‘smitten’ by the actress, and that the two have begun ‘secret dates’:
When Harry heard she had split from her British rugby player boyfriend Matthew Janney at the end of last year, he called on mutual friends to help him hook up with the actress.
He then sent Emma a short email saying that he would “like to get to know her” and invited her out.
Although 12 other friends went along too to make Emma feel a little more comfortable, the pair hit it off!
“Harry didn’t want her to feel like she was put on the spot,” explains one insider. “A party also shows he’s fun and not stuffy.”
“He’s smitten – and it’s more than Emma’s looks.”
This rumor has set Twitter abuzz since last Monday, with reactions ranging from shock to jealousy dominating the exchanges. But the Harry Potter actress has spoken out to dismiss the rumor.
‘WORLD ♥ Remember that little talk we had about not believing everything written in the media?!’ she tweeted.
