Is Jamie Kennedy about to pull the plug on his relationship with Jennifer Love Hewitt – and reconcile with his former flame, Shannon Funk?

While a new report suggests that Kennedy, 39 – who began dating Hewitt, 30, last winter – is no longer smitten with his Ghost Whisperer costar and is instead still hung up on Funk (a former assistant of Britney Spears), a rep for Kennedy told PEOPLE on Thursday: “There’s no truth to this report.”

And at the Oct. 3 Tao/Lavo Anniversary party in Las Vegas, Kennedy told PEOPLE, “People just keep going on [with the rumor-mongering]. We know what we are.”

So, is the couple happy? “Yes,” replied Kennedy.

In the past week alone, the couple – who denied engagement rumors in July – have been spotted together on several occasions.

On Tuesday, they had a romantic dinner in Los Angeles. A few days earlier, on Saturday, Kennedy performed at the Laugh Factory in Long Beach, Calif., and brought Hewitt up on stage. A Laugh Factory rep tells PEOPLE that Kennedy announced that “his eyes had stopped roaming and that he had no plans of ruining a good thing.”
