Michele Morrone is interested in making sure that the right information is out there! The hunky Netflix 365 Days star issued a statement through his rep, clarifying that speculation about a possible relationship with Khloe Kardashian is just that: speculation.
Speaking on how it happened that they both appeared in a photo, the actor’s representative told PEOPLE magazine in a Monday, September 26 report. “Dolce and Gabbana asked them to take a photo at the show.”

“Michele said she was very nice, and that was the extent of it.” The outlet further reported that a source told them that Khloe had “never met [Morrone] before” her sister Kim Kardashian’s Milan Fashion Week event with D&G.
“She just met him in Milan that night. They are not dating. She has no plans to see him again,” the source explained.

That comes as a surprise to the legions of fans who went insane when the Italian actor posted a photo of himself with Khloe on Instagram.
Michele was seen wrapping his arm around the new mama and leaning intimately into the side of her face in the photo, which was taken behind the scenes at the ‘Ciao, Kim’ collaboration show on Saturday.
The actor was dressed in a gold silk shirt and held a glass of wine by his side, while Khloe looked down at the camera through her excellent sunglasses.
A video purportedly of Khloe and Michele that has been widely circulated on Twitter appears to tell a different story, as they appear to be embracing under the blue lights at a D&G afterparty.
The never seen before photo sparked speculation that Khloe, who recently welcomed her second child via surrogate with ex Tristan Thompson had formally moved on with the handsome Michele.
While Michele insists this is not the case, given the circumstances, it would not have been surprising. Tristan and Maralee Nichols split up after a messy paternity scandal resulted in Tristan being declared the father of Maralee Nichols’ baby boy in January.

Meanwhile, according to a source close to Khloe, the reality TV star is moving forward. “All she wants is for them to be healthy and happy co-parents, that’s why she’s forgiven him and wants her family to forgive him too,” a source close to the situation said in July.
“She doesn’t see the point in hanging on to the negativity and anger but that doesn’t mean she’s letting what he did slide. They are 100% done for good.”
