Despite reports to the contrary, Susan Sarandon and Jonathan Bricklin have not broken up.

Bricklin shut down the New York Post's claims that the pair ended their five-year relationship following an alleged disagreement over a reality show.

On Thursday, the 37-year-old told People magazine, that their relationship is complicated, but they haven't called it quits.

"Susan and I have a lot of respect and great admiration for each other. It's impossible to concisely characterize our relationship, other than to say that it continues to evolve in new and unexpected ways," he explained. She supported my decision to be a part of AOL's 'Connected,' and making this series about my life has brought up real and somewhat unexplored issues, but it didn't break us up."

According to Variety, "Connected" is AOL's first attempt at a long-form digital series and will feature six New Yorkers, including Bricklin, who will document their lives for six months.

Sarandon, 68, who is an investor in SPiN -- the ping pong lounge Bricklin co-owns -- will make appearances on the series, according to People.

Sarandon first opened up about her relationship with Bricklin this past October after keeping mum about their romance for years.

"Our collaboration extends into several areas,” the actress told Hello! magazine, brushing off any worry about the 31-year age gap between them. "It’s the soul of a person that interests me. When you are in love, the question of age, sex, color no longer hold any importance.”

Full disclosure: The Huffington Post is owned by AOL.
