Newly single Katy Perry
went to her blog to deny any romance
with Benji Madden
when Rumors arose that she hung out with the rocker and friends at a las vegas nightclub on Valentine's Day.
"It's two pseudo famous people sitting next to each other...doesn't mean we were bumping uglies!" Perry wrote in part
. "I was there celebrating a really fun show and a boozy valentines with all my good friends. We were like a group of 25!"
But now E! News has obtained an exclusive photograph taken of Perry and Madden playing blackjack at about 4 a.m. on Feb. 15 inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
And from the looks of it, she wasn't in a group of 25!
A fellow gambler who snapped the pic tells E! News: "They looked like a happy couple gambling together. They would giggle and touch each other. It was just the two of them alone. They were super comfortable around each other. Just looking at them all night you'd think they were together."
Alas, the source adds that Perry did not kiss a Madden.
