Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr has moved to dismiss ongoing rumours about her love life by insisting she is "single" and "happy".
The brunette beauty split from British actor Orlando Bloom, the father of her young son Flynn, last year (13) and she was subsequently linked to wealthy Aussie businessman James Packer.
Speculation about the pair's rumoured romance has rumbled on, but Kerr has now insisted she is not in a relationship.
When asked whether she has a boyfriend, she tells the Sydney Morning Herald, "No... I'm really happy and content to just be single at the moment and to be focusing on Flynn and my work. It keeps me very occupied. Of course going on a date here and there is fine if it fits into the schedule."
Kerr also tackles the Packer rumours directly, adding, "We've been friends for years. (Rumours) happen all the time with me, it happens to Orlando (too). We understand it. As long as we both know (the truth), then it doesn't really matter what people think. People can speculate as much as they like."
