Orlando Bloom flat out denied he is romantically involved with Selena Gomez, when he returned to Los Angeles on Wednesday evening.
The actor was met LAX airport by a scrum of paparazzi, one of whom asked him to clarify the dating rumors. To which, the Brit shook his head, and replied,
"No man. We were just attending We Day together," in a video obtained by TMZ.
When asked by a photog to repeat what he said, Bloom somewhat testily said, "We were just attending a We Day together."
He added, "You know We Day? You should check it out," then shook his head replying to another probe as he piled into a a waiting car.
Bloom, 37, was seen returning to LAX on Wednesday with a male pal.
Selena, 22, reportedly returned to L.A around the same time, but it's unclear if the two took the same flight.

Romance rumors sparked after they were spotted at LAX together on Monday. It was later confirmed that they took the same flight to Vancouver for the We Day youth empowerment conference.
Gomez -- who recently split from on-off boyfriend Justin Bieber -- hosted the event at the Rogers Arena on Wednesday. Bloom was a guest speaker along with many others.
While denying dating rumors on Tuesday, E! News also noted Bloom and Gomez share a mutual manager at Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
However, the tongue wagging is likely to continue a while, after new snaps surfaced of the seemingly coy "Come & Get It" songstress and the Lord of the Rings actor heading to the Arena together before the event with the rapper Macklemore, a few pals and bodyguards on Wednesday.
In the pics, Selena is seen trying to hide her face from paparazzi, while Orlando seemed unfazed and at ease.

It's reported the the pair separated once they arrived at the arena to prepare for the day-long conference.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Selena delivered a stunning speech on self-worth and forgiveness at the event to 20,000 young people engaged in local and global social efforts.
Orlando spoke about persevering after he had a bad accident when he was younger.

The Latina and the Brit were rumored to be dating months ago, when they were spotted taking a cigarette break outside Chelsea Handler's comedy show in Los Angeles in April. At the time, sources told E! News the pair had just gone out in a group with pals.
Orlando and Justin made worldwide headlines after the actor tried to punch the Canadian singer in a restaurant in Ibiza, Spain in late July.
At the time, it was widely reported Bloom's beef with the singer was over Justin's rumored flirtation with Orlando's ex-wife, the Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr in 2012.
After the We Day event, Selena tweeted a Instagram snap of herself with a fan, next to which she wrote, "The Truth. My joy."
The actress-singer later posted a pic on a plane with friends.
The pop princess' caption read, "Goodbye Vancouver. Hello Los Angeles."
As of Wednesday, Bloom has denied he and Gomez are dating. But that probably won't satisfy the grapevine.
Meanwhile, Justin was spotted out with buddy Lil Za at an Indian restaurant in Hollywood that same night.
The newly single 20-year-old sported a serious amount of bling around his neck, before he was chauffeured away in a grey-black Rolls Royce, reportedly worth $500,000.
He was asked by paparazzi outside if he "still thinks Selena is a beautiful woman."
Bieber replied "She's very beautiful." His potential response to a probe asking whether he was "mad she's with Orlando," was cut off by a bodyguard slamming the car door shut.
It's likely all eyes will be on Bieber, Bloom and Gomez from here on in.
