JASON DERULO PLAYS DOWN ROMANCE WITH LARA BINGLE

Jason Derulo has played down his romance with Lara Bingle, saying he's just "messing around."

The chart topper has told UK's OK that although he thinks the Aussie model is "hot," he isnt seeing anyone "seriously" at the moment.

He confirms they did spent time together in Sydney and Brisbane when he was in Australia for the ARIA's in November.

The pair have since flirted openly on Twitter, and in early December, Bingle's friend posted a video of her miming to Derulo's hit "Ridin' Solo."

They caught up again in Las Vegas in the first few days of January, during Bingle's 'working holiday' through the US.

But it doesn't sound serious, with the singer telling OK he's just "having fun and hanging out. I'm kind of messing around, I'm focused on what I'm doing, but if the right girl came along then that would change things."
