The duo was photographed sitting together during the MTV Video Music Awards function Sunday. The photograph went viral on microblogging platform Twitter, reports eonline.com.
However, Goulding poked fun at her fans and commented: "I love that holding hands with my friends means we're an item. In that case, I am in many relationships. Lover not a hater."
Goulding was also spotted kissing singer Niall Horan a few days back, but she refused to comment on it.
