You guys were all so judge-y when I said it was weird thatÂ Michelle Rodriguez outed Cara DelevingneÂ yesterdayÂ by saying she was dating her, but look at us now! It’s less than twenty-four hours later, and I already get to say ‘I told you so’, because Michelle’s rep is now denying everything.
Cara and Michelle were spotted drunkenly touching tongues and falling all over each other at a Pistons-Knicks game a month ago, but I personally didn’t think that much of it. They can make out with whoever they want to, they were obviously getting sloppy, and Cara was fresh off a world tour ofÂ Miley Cyrus‘ oral cavity at a party in Vegas. So it’s two famous ladies acting out at a basketball game. So what?
So…they’re together, is what. At least according to Michelle, who supposedly gave a statement announcing that she’s dating Cara:
â€śItâ€™s going really well. Sheâ€™s so cool. When we started hanging out I just thought she was awesome, and we have the best time together. Sheâ€™s hard though. You wouldnâ€™t want to mess with her in a fight.â€ť
That’s all well and good, but Cara isn’t officially out. Or at least she wasn’t, until that statement. She’s written some cryptic tweets suggesting that she ‘plays for both teams’, but she’s apparently a pretty private persona, and has never gotten official about it. Which is something that you’d think someone like Michelle would understand, given how many denials she’s issued over the seven years between November 2006, when she was inadvertently outed by The Advocate and October 2013, when she finally came out.
…which is probably why Michelle’s rep just went into overdrive, trying to backtrack the statement by claiming that Michelle never evenÂ gave an interview toÂ The Telegraph.Â The two of them went home together after the ELLE Style Awards last night, but her team is swearing up and down that Michelle never said a word about dating Cara. NOT ONE WORD.
Well okay then everybody. It’s probably good you never took off your shoes or your coat and got settled, because it looks like we’re going right back into that closet. Bon voyage.
