Dustin Lynch prompted quite the stir in the country music community a few weeks ago when he posed for a picture with another major celebrity. While at the Stagecoach music festival, Lynch snapped a cute photo with Kelly Osbourne, the daughter of rock legend Ozzy Osbourne. Osbourne later posted the photo to her Instagram, and that's when all the buzz started.
The photo shows Lynch with his arm around Osbourne, while she leans in toward him and makes a kissy face. But the part of the photo that has since generated a lot of questions was Osbourne's caption, as she wrote "I really miss my boyfriend."
Ever since Osbourne posted the photo, fans have been curious to know if she and the "Mind Reader" singer really are an item. Lynch has tried to clear up the rumors in previous interviews, saying the two are simply "friends." But during a recent interview with CMT, Lynch decided to set the record straight on his relationship with Osbourne once and for all.
"It's so funny that just a simple picture and two people meet backstage and become friends and exchange numbers, four days later we're an official item in LA," Lynch said, making sure to emphasize the fact that he has no "significant other" in his life right now.
So what does Lynch think about all of the attention he's received since Osbourne posted that photo? Well, he's actually gotten a good laugh out of the whole thing.
"She called me, and she's like 'I feel so bad, I want to make sure you're [not] mad the tabloids are writing about us. I have nothing to do with it.' I'm like 'No I think it's hilarious! What do I care? I think it's awesome,'" he said.
We're sure many country ladies just breathed a heavy sigh of relief after hearing Lynch say that! You can watch his full interview about the craze surrounding him and Osbourne in the video below.
