Hermione hates Draco’s guts. But almost a decade after the “Harry Potter” franchise somewhat ended, dating rumors of Emma Watson and Tom Felton just won’t die down.

After a thorough investigation, Gossip Cop put the allegations to rest by checking with a reliable source close to Watson. Both are simply “good friends,” which is given since they have known and worked with each other since they were at their teens. There’s a bond alright — something that they share with the rest of the “Harry Potter” cast after eight consecutive blockbusters.

The rumor was first reported by OK! Australia in an article entitled “Emma & Tom: More Than Friends?” Its basis was an Instagram post by Felton, where he was teaching Watson how to play guitar during a trip to South Africa. The two looked cozy as they sat beside each other in a couch and only wearing pajamas.

“Quick learner x,” Felton captioned. A series of posts by both of them soon followed, showing different snaps of them having a good time at the beach. Potterheads, who are still thirsty for more updates on all things related to the Potterverse, picked up the rumor and started shipping the two, giving them nicknames such as “Dramione” and “Feltson.”

Of course this isn’t their first dating gossip. Back in February, Watson uploaded a stunning Instagram photo of herself in a car, where she tagged Felton as the photographer. “Friends capture you best,” she writes.

On November 2019, Watson shared another selfie — a video this time — where they rode his long board together. And she was helping to promote Felton’s web series “Origin” in the caption.

Perhaps fans were still holding on to Watson’s admission of her “terrible crush” on Felton. “Between the ages of 10 and 12 I had a really terrible crush on Tom Felton,” Watson gushed in 2012.

Gossipers just can’t get enough of Watson. In a recent news by Daily Mail, the actress was seen having a pizza date at Los Angeles with an unknown man and then bumping into her ex Brendan Iribe, the former CEO of Oculus, as he sped past by on a scooter. Awkward.
