How can you be "back with your ex" if you were never together at all?

That's what Minka Kelly had to say about her rumored romance with Wilmer Valderrama.

The 36-year-old actress opened up about the recent relationship rumors during a radio interview with Power 106's J Cruz and Krystal Bee on Thursday, insisting there’s just no relationship to report.

"It sucks when stories that aren't true are made up, you know?" she said.  "Look, if it's true and it's out, then it's true and it's out. When it's not true and it's out is when it's really frustrating. You just have to find the comedy in all of it."

While Kelly asserts that she and Valderrama aren't dating, she does admit that they're very close. "He's a good friend to me too. [We are] good friends," she shared. "Wilmer's a really, really good person. And any woman would be lucky to have him."

But despite their close relationship -- and reports that the two dated in 2012 -- Kelly said they've never been romantic.

"He's not my ex, and we are good friends and we always have been. It's funny, this whole 'back with my ex' thing," she stated. "We're not exes!"

Though the former Friday Night Lights star is hoping to put these rumors to rest, Valderrama's ex, Demi Lovato, seemed to be fueling the fire.

Just last week the 24-year-old singer appeared to address Kelly and Valderrama's reported romance with one cryptic tweet.

"You have to be capable of being honest with yourself before you can get honest with other people," she wrote.
