“Date night with @benflajnik and lizheinlen,” Kris captioned the photo.
It’s an interesting choice of words considering the rumors that have been flying since September — and the duo’s insistence that these claims are anything but true. After Kris posted photos of herself at Ben’s Sonoma winery earlier this fall, the former Bachelor star was quick to deny a romance, telling Us Weekly that he was simply giving Kris a tour of the winery for a KUWTK episode.
When a recent Us Weekly cover story claimed that the two were definitely dating, Ben once again went right to People.com to set the record straight. Telling the site that he is single and that he and Kris are strictly friends, the former Bachelor adamantly denied the romance.
So could Kris’s latest tweet simply be a deliberate attempt to add fuel to the fire? The recently-separated mother does seem to enjoy the attention from her alleged May-December romance.
“Kris is denying this, but I think she secretly loves it,” a source told Wetpaint exclusively last week. “I’m sure she is enjoying being linked to a guy over 27 years younger than her, even if it’s not true.”
For his part, Ben added an Instagram photo of his own from the “date night” along with a sarcastic comment directed at Us Weekly.
“Dear @UsWeekly, still dating,” he wrote. “@lizheinlein @krisjenner #cubbie #callmeforfacts.”
