Late last summer rumors of romance surfaced about Kate Hudson and Nick Jonas possibly dating, or just hooking up—no one was really sure. One thing was for certain though, the two were seen together on a semi-regular basis thereafter.

While both have remained coy about the nature of their relationship—with Hudson telling Access Hollywood the two were merely "friendly" at the Golden Globes—they have seemed to be spending a fair amount of time together. In our new cover story, Jonas opened up about those dating rumors.

"Kate’s incredible. We had an unbelievable connection as two humans who just admire things about each other, and see something in each other that’s beautiful," he told Complex. "Out of my best effort to respect her and her privacy, I’m not going to say if we had sex or not. But we did have a beautiful connection. Even now I have so much admiration and respect. She’s amazing."

So how does he feel about all the media prying?

"It doesn’t shock me or surprise me. I don’t get pissed off about it. I’ve come to accept it. With that in particular. It’s a bizarre matchup to a lot of people."
