An exasperated Lorde has denied she's dating her producer friend Jack Antonoff, again.

"Guys, never. No. Jack and I are not dating," the 21-year-old Kiwi songstress replied to a fan's question during an Instagram live session on Thursday.

"For the last time... I love him, he's awesome. But we're not dating. Please!"

Lorde's tight friendship with the 33-year-old musician has kept rumours swirling for some time now.

The pair were spotted near the 'Green Light' hitmaker's Auckland home, where Antonoff visited to open Paramore's concert with his band Fun. Photos show Lorde and Antonoff smiling and laughing as they walk down the road.

Antonoff, too, has shown frustration with the speculation.

"Normally I would never address rumours but I resent having the most important friendships and working relationships in my life reduced to dumb hetero normative gossip," the guitarist said on Twitter.

"Those relationships are deeply important and sacred... With that said, I'm not seeing anyone. Lol."

In January, representatives confirmed Antonoff and Girls creator Lena Dunham had split after five years together.

Antonoff worked with Lorde on Melodrama, which was nominated for Album Of The Year at the Grammys. He's said to have had a major influence on many of the album's songs.
