Katy Perry and Ryan Phillippe shoot down dating rumors

That was the actor's message as he tried to set the record straight about him and the "Roar" singer.

The pair managed to make hay out of rumors they have been making whoopie.

It all started Sunday when Phillippe tweeted a denial, all in caps for emphasis, that he has been dating Perry.

"I am not dating Katy Perry," he tweeted. "Barely know her. Please stop flying helicopters over my house. She is not here. Thx."

That led one fan to tweet "Thats what some1 who has Katy Perry in his basement would say....."
