(UPDATED) It has now been confirmed by MTV News (of all media sources) to correct the original source from US Weekly, that Norman and Emily are not dating. Now with that taken care of, let’s get back on to wallowing, till the next season of TWD to begin.
“We can confirm that they are not dating,” a rep for Reedus said,
– EDITORS NOTE: THIS STORY IS NOW DEBUNKED – Did you hear that? That was the sound of men sighing in relief and cries of the many adoring fans of Norman Reedus, who wish they had a chance with him, echoing through the atmosphere simultaneously. Ah… And there you hear those that are the many fans of Emily Kinney who wish they had a chance with her crying out as well. Poor, unfortunate souls.
That is right — according US Weekly, Norman Reedus, 46, is dating ex co-star Emily Kinney, 29. A source tells them,
“They had a connection early on in the show… but the romance developed recently. They’re still pretty guarded about it.”
The duo, who starred in AMC’s The Walking Dead, appeared together in a handful of episodes as their characters on their own separated from the rest of the surviving group in a zombie (or walker) apocalypse. Many fans rooted for a Beth Greene (Kinney) and Daryl Dixon (Reedus) romance storyline, but that idea unfortunately ended after Beth was killed off.
Regardless of Kinney’s departure from the show, Reedus and Kinney continued to stay in touch. Through texts, convention appearances, and even at Kinney’s concerts were they able to stay connected. The source also confirmed his appearances at her shows.
“He was one of the first to support her at her concerts when she was still on the show.”
We are happy to hear the wonderful news. Congrats to the new couple. We wish them all the best.
