Singer-actor Nick Jonas has taken to Twitter to bat down persistent rumors of relationships with various screen and music stars.

“I’ve now been romantically linked to two of my friends wife and girlfriend while third wheeling at dinner with them. #sofunnyiforgottolaugh,” Jonas, 23, tweeted. “I’ve been very open about the fact that I am not in a relationship with anyone right now,” he added. “I am pretty sure I am the most reliable source.”

In between those tweets, he posted an image of himself outside a West Hollywood restaurant on Saturday with friends, writing that tabloids “are very good at cropping people out of pictures that make their story less interesting.” One fan tweeted back, “Nick Jonas, you’re supposedly in a relationship with the girl behind you who is clearly holding hands w/ another guy,” to which Jonas responded, “Exactly.” Yet the image as published in a tabloid Sunday was identical and not cropped, making his point unclear.

Since Jonas’ reported breakup in June with Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo, the tabloid press has speculated on purported relationships with reality TV star Kendall Jenner, singer Lily Collins and actress Kate Hudson, with whom he was photographed at Disney World on Sept. 26.
