The Vamps rocker dismisses Jade Thirlwell dating rumors

The Vamps bassist Connor Ball has dismissed reports suggesting he is dating Little Mix star Jade Thirlwell.

The pair was first rumored to be romantically linked after Connor was pictured at the launch party for the girl band's album Get Weird last month (Nov15), but the British rocker is adamant they are not an item.

"The speculation about Jade is funny," Connor tells Britain's Daily Record newspaper. "We went to the Little Mix album launch... and I saw Jade for 10 minutes and that was it.

"It's just a rumor. I'm not dating Jade but she's a lovely girl."

Despite romance not being on the cards for Jade and Connor, 2015 has been an eventful year in the love lives of Little Mix members.

In July (15), Jesy Nelson's singer boyfriend Jake Roche proposed to her on stage at a concert in Manchester, England, but a month later (Aug15), Perrie Edwards split from her fiance Zayn Malik.
