Since Bindi Irwin, 17, and Derek Hough, 30, were announced the Season 21 champions of Dancing with the Stars, rumors have been swirling that the two are now dating!
But, a spokesperson for Bindi — who has been in a relationship with professional wakeboarder Chandler Powell, 18, for several months — is now setting the record straight, and has confirmed the TV star and Derek are NOT an item.
"[The rumors are] completely untrue. Chandler is still Bindi's boyfriend and Derek is very much a friend who left Australia last week to head home after spending a couple of days checking out Australia Zoo," Bindi's rep told the Daily Mail Australia on Monday, Dec. 14.
Following their DWTS win last month, Derek traveled Down Under to visit Bindi and learn more about her wildlife conversation work. "So happy to get to introduce you to our world here in Australia! You are officially a Wildlife Warrior. Bring on the adventure! @derekhough," Bindi recently captioned a photo of herself posing beside Derek — and a rhino! — on Instagram.
