Supermodel Adriana Lima has denied she and pop star Justin Bieber have ever been more than friends.
The Victoria's Secret Angel (34) was linked to the Baby singer (21) in 2014 after they were pictured together on a night out at the Cannes Film Festival , after she split with ex-husband, basketball player Marko Jaric.
And the reason things never turned romantic with Justin? His height. The Serbian NBA star stands at 6'7" and said anyone below that height is too short for her.
Adriana appeared on What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and guest Padma Lakshmi on Bravo TV when she was grilled about the rumoured romance.
"Where did you read that? Where? Where?," she asked the host about his source.
"I read it a year ago. It was kind of buzzing about," he said.
Adriana quickly shot down the suggestion, saying: Oh my gosh, No. No. Let me tell, you, OK I'm gonna tell you this. Anybody below 6'7, you know how I call them? Friends."
At the time, it was reported that Justin, during a split with Selena Gomez, "pursued her hard".
