(LOS ANGELES) -- Paris Hilton has been romantically linked for a while to Afrojack, a prominent DJ, but now she appears to be denying they were ever a couple.
In response to reports they've broken up, Paris tweeted Wednesday, "Afrojack is 1 of my best friends & always will be. Must be a slow news week that the media keeps making up these ridiculous stories. Lol."
Similarly, Afrojack, whose birth name is Nick van de Wall, tweeted, "Zzzz media's at it again...Me and Paris Hilton have been best friends for almost a year, still are, listen to my words next time!"
