TLC singer Chilli and comedian Wayne Brady are not dating, despite rumors recently surfacing on the web.
Yesterday, US Weekly reported on a story claiming that Wayne Brady and Chilli were spotted booed up and holding hands during a TLC concert at the MGM in Vegas:
“They were so cute, stopping to take pictures with fans,” an eyewitness tells Us of the night out. “He kept her close to him the whole time.”
Mid-show, Chilli (real name: Rozonda Thomas) also gave the Emmy-award winning star a shout-out during the set and brought him on stage. (Chilli and Lil Mama performed for a private party MGM threw for their employees.)
“It has only been two weeks but they really like each other,” a source adds.
“They’ve been friends for years but there has always been this flirtation. Both of them had a hard time being single, so they love dating a friend and someone in the business. They make a really great couple.”
But before the rumor could go to far, Wayne Brady took to Twitter to set the record straight himself:
So, just clear it up @officialchilli are not dating. Who wouldn’t want to though, right? Don’t believe everything u read:)

According to our buddies over at Necole Bitchie, Chilli also added that the photo of the two together that surfaced sparking off the dating rumors, was cropped so that a fan was removed from the photo. There is no clarity on when and where the photo was taken.
So fellas and ladies … Chilli and Wayne Brady are still on the market, for now!
