Ben Flajnik has denied he is dating suddenly-single Kris Jenner.

Rumors erupted Flajnik and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star have been seeing each other ever since Jenner tweeted a photo of herself and the former sixteenth-season The Bachelor star at his vineyard in Sonoma, CA on September 28.

A source also told In Touch Weekly that Jenner, 57, "has a crush" on Flajnik, 31, and "they've been spending a lot of time together."

"I did Kris' talk show a few months back, brought my wines on the show. Of course I offered her a visit to the winery whenever she had a chance," Flajnik told Us Weekly.

"That's how we met. Recently, she ended up contacting me about a month ago or so and asked me if they could film an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians at the winery. I of course obliged."

Jenner brought a family friend, Jonathan Cheban, to the winery with her for the special visit last month.

"I showed them around Sonoma," added Flajnik. "Who doesn't want to ride bikes and drink wine? That's where one of those photos were from."

In fact, Flajnik owned up to a new romance -- and it's certainly not with the Kardashian momager.

"I've been dating this girl," the winemaker told Us. "She's local, she's in the wine business. We've been dating, she's super great and super smart. It's been a few months at this point."

Flajnik was, however, "surprised" about the recent announcement of Jenner and husband Bruce Jenner's separation after 22 years of marriage.

"I'm kind of caught in a crossfire," Flajnik joked, adding that he believes the Kardashian and Jenner clans are "very nice people."

Regardless of whether Jenner is dating Flajnik, the In Touch source also claimed, "[Kris] and Bruce are separated, so now they're allowed to see other people -- and she's in full-on dating mode."

Flajnik had previously been engaged to Courtney Robertson, whom he selected and proposed to during his The Bachelor edition's final Rose Ceremony, which was filmed in November 2011 and aired in March 2012. The couple called it quits less than a year afterwards.
