Guadnino later set the record straight on their relationship with Us Weekly as well. Rumors about their coupledom were fueled further after fellow "Dancing With The Stars" castmate Jessie James Decker had commented on an Instagram carousel posted by Windey, which included a picture of Giadnino.

Decker commented, "Dancing with your honey, @vinnyguadnino [heart]," "can't wait to double date in Nash [grateful emoji]" Multiple fans would go on to ask Decker if she had just outed the duo.

Speaking to Us Weekly, Guadnino struck down the rumors once again.

"It takes a lot more for me than just, like, a couple Instagram comments to be dating someone," he said. "But I would go on a double date with her and Jessie and her husband. I would actually go to dinner with Gabby. It's just that we just met, you know what I mean?" he asked. "It's not like anything serious." (per The Blast)
