Bella Hadid and Australian model on the rise Jordan Barrett have been seen together a lot in recent weeks: they lounged together on a yacht during the Cannes Film Festival, and were photographed together at her home in New York.

The tabloids were quick to claim the two are together, but Hadid shut down the reports on Twitter on Thursday.

“J is like a brother to me,” she tweeted in response to a fan asking if she’s dating Jordan.

The 20-year-old also took issue with photos of her and Jordan relaxing inside her NYC apartment, rightly claiming it was an invasion of privacy.

“On another note – whoever thinks it’s OK to photograph into someones [sic] home & private space is straight up sick, sad & f***** up. time to move.”

Bella and Jordan do look good together, but after she described him as “like a brother”, there’s little chance of these two being more than friends.

Bella dated The Weeknd on-and-off for almost two years, before they split late last year, and he moved on with Selena Gomez just weeks later.
