Katharine McPhee Says "People Can Say Whatever They Want" About Her Rumored Romance With Gigi Hadid's Stepdad
Being Katharine McPhee sounds exhausting. The actress, who currently stars as the token "normal" person in a crew of crime-solving geniuses on Scorpion, spends countless hours on set alongside her ex-boyfriend Elyes Gabel only to come home to witness the rumor mill working overtime to peg her relationship status with David Foster.
"We're very close friends, and we've been friends for a long time," she said. "I'm really, really fond of [Foster]...I've known him since I was 21-years-old, you know? He produced my first single. So he's been really good to me. People can say whatever they want."
OK, so that statement doesn't exactly expel the rumors. To make things weirder, McPhee also told Health that he is "pretty single," which is an unclear measurement of singleness. Maybe it's just a sign of the times; after all, Facebook allows people to mark "it's complicated" as a relationship status.
Of course, "pretty single" could also mean, "I will tell you about my love life when I'm good and ready, thank you very much," which would a sentiment I would totally support.
Sure, it's entertaining to guess who's getting down with who in Hollywood — even Foster's daughter, Erin, has joined in on the fun — but ultimately, celebrities don't owe us anything. We're not entitled to the deets on McPhee's dating life, and no paparazzi photo frenzy is going to change that.
