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.”
