So much for that Molly Swenson-Ian Somerhalder dating rumor.

A few days after the former American Idol contestant was rumored to be bedding The Vampire Diaries hunk, Swenson took to Twitter and made her status very clear.

'I've been off the market for 2 yrs! <3 you @randizzie," Swenson wrote today, referring to boyfriend Randal Hark.

Swenson is COO of RYOT News, a website that links articles to philanthropic action sites.

Somerhalder, meanwhile, is one of the most charitable stars on the planet, focusing his efforts largely on wildlife and environmental protection.

He spent time at the RYOT office last Wednesday, which is how these romantic rumors got started.

"Hanging at the @ryotnews office with brynmooser and mollydewolf," Ian wrote in the caption of an Instagram photo of himself, Swenson and another friend at the publication's office last week.

Somerhalder split from co-star Nina Dobrev last spring after many years as a couple.
