Madison, who just split from Peter Weber earlier this month after appearing on The Bachelor, conducted an Instagram Live session on Friday in which she set the record straight on whether she's dating Connor, who competed for Hannah Brown's heart on The Bachelorette last year.
"He seems like a really sweet guy and he, like, reached out right after the finale and just sent some encouragement and some support, really sweet, but that is it," Madison, 24, said of Connor, 25, according toUs Weekly.
"We are not together. I am not with anyone right now. I am just focusing on myself and taking it one day at a time. So yeah, so there's that."
The question came hours after The Bachelorette alum John Paul Jones questioned Connor about his possible romance with Madison during an Instagram Live session that same day.
"Wait Connor, we were having a talk, man, what happened?" John Paul playfully asked.
Connor didn't reply other than giggling and hiding his face from the camera.
"She's got her stuff together. She's a catch, man. I'm proud of you," John Paul continued. "I am happy for you, that is awesome. I ship you guys, 100 percent."
A bashful Connor didn't confirm or deny whether anything is happening with Madison in the love department. Instead, he just laughed and quickly changed the subject.
"So what's up with you and Madison though?" Mike asked Connor, according to Us.

"I don't know, we'll see," Connor replied, later adding, "Dude, I can't give you anything."
Madison, a religious virgin and former basketball star, was the frontrunner for Peter's heart on The Bachelor this year but quit shortly before the Final Rose Ceremony in Australia because she feared they weren't compatible.
Peter therefore proposed marriage to the other woman in his Final 2, Hannah Ann Sluss, but he discovered less than two months into their engagement he couldn't give the Tennessee model his whole heart.
Peter therefore dumped Hannah Ann, and The Bachelor host Chris Harrison tracked down Madison in Alabama to inform her that Peter was single again and still had feelings for her.
Madison, who said she regretted leaving Peter in Australia in November 2019, and Peter therefore decided to give their love another chance by dating in the real world, and they were together by the end of The Bachelor's live Season 24 finale earlier this month.
However, Peter and Madison announced just two days after the finale aired on ABC they had decided to call it quits in separate statements on Instagram.
"As Peter and I have decided to go our separate ways, I am confident that we will both move in the direction of our purpose and never forget that God has a plan in all things. I will always love and respect him," Madison wrote on March 12.
"I am convinced our paths were meant to cross and we are both better because they did. [Peter] you are an amazing guy and I'm thankful for you. I will always be your biggest fan... [I am] so incredibly thankful for this amazing journey I've had the honor of being a part of. I have grown so much and am stronger than I was going in."
As for Connor, after failing to win over Hannah B. last year, he fell hard and fast for Caelynn Miller-Keyes on Bachelor in Paradise's sixth season.
Caelynn, however, broke up with Connor to reconcile with Dean Unglert. (Caelynn and Dean are still together and happy).
Connor anticipated the beautiful Whitney Fransway, whom he had previously met at Chris Randone and Krystal Nielson's wedding in Mexico, would join the Paradise cast once Caelynn quit the show. But when Whitney didn't show up, Connor removed himself from the cast.
Much to Whitney's dismay, she did in fact enter Paradise only to learn Connor had left the resort about 20 minutes earlier. So instead of choosing to date another guy on the beach, Whitney opted to leave Paradise and chase Connor down at his nearby hotel.
Once Connor and Whitney left Mexico with a mutual desire to continue dating, Connor flew to her hometown of Los Angeles, CA.
The pair was still together by the time Bachelor in Paradise's reunion taped in August 2019, but Connor announced their split the following month.
