The Alone hitmaker has been romantically linked to the 41-year-old musician since the pair exchanged a series of flirtatious messages on social media.
However, the 24-year-old pop star took to Twitter on Wednesday, 7 November to hit out at anyone suggesting theyâ€™re an item, stating that itâ€™s possible for two people of the opposite sex to be friends and not be â€śsleeping togetherâ€ť.
She wrote: â€śI just had a ground breaking idea. What ifâ€¦we let female artistsâ€¦have friendsâ€¦without assuming that they are sleeping together?
â€śI know I know. Itâ€™s like, completely ambitious but like, imagine if we like, tried ? (sic)â€ť

This week, Halsey shared a screenshot of her FaceTime session with the Love on the Weekend hitmaker, and John commented: â€śItâ€™s saying that my billing address doesnâ€™t match with the one of my credit card? Iâ€™ve never had this problem before. Can you text me? Thanks (sic)â€ť
The Bad At Love hitmaker makes references to the rapper in the promo and even has a lookalike playing him in the clip.
Writing about the video on Twitter, the star said: â€śThe story is a reflection of a combination of relationships Iâ€™ve been in, or watched the people I love go through.
â€śItâ€™s a reminder that you deserve more. And itâ€™s okay to not want to be taken advantage ofâ€¦ by your partners, your friends, your family. You deserve happiness. Donâ€™t be afraid of going and finding it.â€ť

In her lyrics, Halsey even refers to Justin Timberlakeâ€™s classic break-up song Cry Me A River.
At one point, in a nod to JTâ€™s bitter 2002 hit â€“ which features an almost identical line â€“ she sings: â€śYou donâ€™t have to say just what you did. I already know, I had to go and find out from them.â€ť
Following news of the break-up, the Closer singer took to social media to share a philosophical quote reminding herself to focus on her own happiness.
She tweeted: â€śreminder to self: happiness is not a replacement for misery. itâ€™s an addition. pain will always be there. but thatâ€™s okay.
â€śu allow happiness to join as another option. so when the time comes, itâ€™s there waiting, existing; a possibility for when youâ€™re ready to choose â€¦
â€ś@ me: life is not pain vs happiness. one does not replace the other. they exist together. happiness doesnâ€™t arrive as a replacement. it arrives to assist u in carrying the weight of the pain â€¦ @ me: now remember that u dummy (sic)â€ť
