Jenna Ortega has spoken out about recent rumors that have surfaced about her love life. The Wednesday actress, who shot to fame as the titular character in Tim Burton's smash-hit Netflix show, was reported on a gossip website to be dating Hollywood A-Lister, Johnny Depp.

But it seems the 20-year-old was keen to pour cold water on the rumors and took to her Instagram Stories to set the record straight.

"This is so ridiculous I can't even laugh," she wrote, adding: "I have never met or worked with Johnny Depp in my life. Please stop spreading lies and leave us alone."

Not only that, but Johnny himself was also keen to shut down the reports. His representatives said in a statement to NME: "Mr. Depp has no personal or professional relationship with Ms. Ortega whatsoever. He has never met her or spoken to her."

However, now that Jenna is a big star many are wondering who the actress is involved with. She's notoriously private when it comes to her personal life and tends to keep it away from the spotlight, Here's what we know…

Who is Jenna Ortega dating?

It appears that Jenna Ortega is currently single. Extremely private, the 20-year-old rarely posts about her personal life on social media, however, in the past rumours have linked the actress to other well-known stars.

After starring as Wednesday on the Netflix series, fans initially wondered whether the on-screen chemistry between Jenna and her co-star Hunter Doohan, who plays Tyler Galpin on the show, could translate to a romance off-screen, however, any questions were quickly dismissed after it was revealed that Hunter is actually married to husband, Fielder Jewett. The loved-up couple tied the knot in a beautiful woodland ceremony, surrounded by close friends and family.

In 2018, it was speculated that Jenna could be dating actor Asher Angel after they attended Just Jared's Annual Halloween Party together. Dressed as then-couple, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, the pair's joint costume sparked endless questions from fans. However, despite being spotted at several events together, including fashion shows and the premiere of Venom, Jenna and Asher never clarified whether they were romantically involved or just good friends.

A year prior, there had been rumours that Jenna could be dating singer Jacob Sartorius after she appeared in his music video for 'Chapstick' where they shared a kiss. Months later, however, he revealed that he was actually in a relationship with Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown. The couple later broke up in 2018.
