Sometimes you don't even realize a rumor is out there until someone shoots it down.

Life & Style (via RumorFix) seems to think Dancing With the Stars Season 10 champions Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough have some kind of thing going on, writing "ever since Nicole broke up with Lewis Hamilton she’s been hanging out with Derek. He 100% acts like he’s her boyfriend.”

The story says Derek was all over Nicole in front of his ex-girlfriend Lauren Conrad at an event on November 10. But RumorFix contacted Nicole's rep, who told the site the story had "absolutely no truth" to it.

Still, it’s nice to see the DWTS pair still get along. Maybe they re-bonded while sharing the same studio, since The X-Factor judge tapes her show across the hall from DWTS?
