BUZZ: Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jamie Kennedy on the Rocks?
Together for nearly a year, Kennedy faces – and dismisses – rumors he s pining for his former flame
Is Jamie Kennedy about to pull the plug on his relationship with Jennifer Love Hewitt and reconcile with his former flame, Shannon Funk?
An online news report suggests Kennedy, 39 – who began dating Hewitt, 30, last winter – is no longer smitten with the Ghost Whisperer actress, and is instead still hung up on Funk, a former assistant of Britney Spears.
But a rep for Kennedy told PEOPLE Thursday, “There s no truth to this report.”
And at a party in Las Vegas on Oct. 3, Kennedy addressed the subject: “People just keep going on [the rumors],” the comedian told PEOPLE. We know what we are.” So is the couple happy? “Yes,” responded 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 he then joked that “his eyes had stopped roaming and that he had no plans of ruining a good thing.”
