Khloé Kardashian is not moving on with the Italian actor Michele Morrone despite excited fans jumping to the conclusion that they were dating.
A representative for Morrone, 31, cleared up the confusion to TMZ on Monday.

Rumors of a relationship began swirling after the two posed together for a photo, with Michele wrapping his arm around Khloé and placing his face just inches from her face, even as she put on her own sultry look while facing away from him.
As striking as the photo was, it all took place at the request of Dolce & Gabbana, though that didn’t stop Morrone from sharing the photo to his Instagram Stories and setting off the speculation.
‘Dolce and Gabbana asked them to take a photo at the show,’ his rep told People. ‘Michele said she was very nice, and that was the extent of it.’
Another source also confirmed to the publication that Khloé had ‘never met [Morrone] before’ the Milan Fashion Week.
‘She just met him in Milan that night,’ they continued. ‘They are not dating. She has no plans to see him again.’

Morrone is said to currently be single. In 2014, he married the artist Rouba Saadeh, but the two separated in 2018.
Back in June, Khloé was reported to be dating a private equity investor, but few updates have materialized about the reported relationship.
In the image that set off speculation, the 365 Days star Michele was seen wearing a copper-hued silk shirt which he wore open at the collar and a pair of black PVC trousers as he cozied-up to Khloe.
Khloé looked glamorous in a black catsuit and a diamanté encrusted pair of hotpants and matching corset top as she prepared to head to the Dolce & Gabbana SS23 show on Saturday.
She could be seen leaning in to Michele and standing with her arm around him while wearing a pair of dark sunglasses in the snap.
The pair were later seen chatting and affectionately touching each other as they enjoyed the afterparty in the Italian city.

It comes days after Khloe was seen choking back tears in an upcoming episode of her family show The Kardashians as she detailed her shock at learning her on/off boyfriend Tristan Thompson had been unfaithful yet again while they were expecting their second child together.
In a new teaser trailer for the second season – which will launch on Thursday – the reality star admitted it had a been ‘a difficult time’ as she tried to come to terms with another betrayal.
In December last year the couple were secretly expecting a son via surrogate when it emerged that Tristan had cheated on Khloe with fitness instructor Maralee Nichols – who was pregnant with his child.
He’d initially denied the child was his but later admitted to his infidelity in a statement published to Instagram in January, which included a direct apology to Khloe.
‘There is something I am ready to talk about… Tristan and I are having another baby,’ she revealed in the trailer.

Despite looking forward to their impending arrival, Khloé was clearly distraught over the state of her personal life and the circumstances surrounding Tristan’s betrayal.
‘It’s supposed to be a really exciting time and it’s just a different experience,’ she explained.
In her own confessional, Khloé’s mother Kris Jenner remarked that ‘it’s hard to watch her in pain.’

The Good American co-founder went on to express that, although she found the experience to be particularly wrenching, she was looking forward to her future as a mother-of-two.
‘This has been a difficult time in my life but it’s the start of something positive and happy and beautiful,’ she said.
Khloé and Tristan, 31, began seeing each other in 2016 while his ex Jordan Craig was pregnant with his now five-year-old son Prince.
They welcomed their daughter True, now four, two years later in 2018.
The former couple’s on/off romance was plagued by infidelity on Tristan’s part, including an infamous incident in 2019 when he was caught kissing her sister Kylie Jenner’s best friend Jordyn Woods.
Despite their up and downs, Khloé and Tristan reconciled amid the coronavirus pandemic after quarantining together to co-parent their daughter.
The couple separated again in 2021 before it was publicly revealed that he’d cheated on her in March 2021 with Maralee Nichols, who would later fall pregnant with his son Theo, now nine months.

Maralee gave birth to Theo in early December 2021 and accused Tristan of refusing to pay child support as he continued to insist that the child was not his.
But after taking a paternity test, Tristan was forced to reveal that Theo was indeed his son and that he’d stepped out on Khloé for the umpteenth time.
Seven months after the scandal, it was revealed that Khloé was expecting a baby boy with her former partner via surrogate.
Khloé has been in Italy this week with her sister Kim Kardashian, 41, Kim’s children North West, nine; Saint, six; Chicago, four; and Psalm, three, whom she shares with rapper ex-husband Kanye West, 45; and her mother Kris Jenner, 66.
