Jack Antonoff slams rumors he’s dating other people following his split from Lena Dunham

Jack Antonoff is sick of the rumors. The 33-year-old musician took to Twitter late Tuesday night to shut down the speculation that he’s already started dating after recently ending his 5-year relationship with Lena Dunham.

“Normally I would never address rumors,” he began. “But I resent having the most important friendships and working relationships in my life reduced to dumb hetero normative gossip. Those relationships are deeply important and sacred.”

He then clarified, “With that said, I’m not seeing anyone. Lol.”

ET confirmed the pair’s split earlier this month. Though The Girls creator didn’t comment directly on the breakup, she did talk publicly about her decision to wear a ring that Antonoff had given her.
