Austin Mahone had everyone talking when he sent a flirty message to Brie Angellina on Instagram, singing "Thinkin' Bout You" back at her after she posted a video singing a snippet of the track. However, she EXCLUSIVELY opened up to J-14 about the rumors, and says that she's just longtime friends with the "Dirty Work" pop star.

"It was simply, he liked the song too and he covered it too. It was just that. We're friends. We actually met years ago, and then after I met him, that's when I was cast in his 'Say Somethin' music video as one of the cheerleaders. We've been friends ever since. No, we're not dating. We're just friends," she told us.

However, she would totally be open to a collaboration with him!

"I think he's so talented, and I really think if we do collaborate in the future, it would be a really cool vibe. His sound right now is so cool," she spilled.

That would definitely be amazing!

Do you think they should collaborate? Let us know in the comments!
