The two have been denying dating rumors since May.

If Katharine McPhee and David Foster are still just "close friends," they have a funny way of showing it. 

The rumored couple was spotted kissing after lunch at E Baldi in Beverly Hills, California, on Thursday. 

McPhee, 33, looked casual in a long black coat, high-waisted jeans and black booties for their lunch date, while Foster, 68, sported jeans and a sports coat. 


While Thursday is the first time McPhee and Foster were photographed locking lips, the two have been rumored to be dating since May. In the December issue of Health magazine, however, McPhee insisted they were nothing more than friends. 

"We’re very close friends, and we’ve been friends for a long time," the American Idol alum said. "I’m really, really fond of him, and I think he’s an incredible person."

"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," she added. "People can say whatever they want."
