chord emma darren Chord Overstreet and Darren Criss in a real life love triangle? We think notLast week, we rolled our eyes over rumors that Lea Michele and Ashton Kutcher were headed for a hook-up. For this week’s ridiculous “Glee”-related rumor, we’ve got Star reporting that Darren Criss and Chord Overstreet may be battling for Emma Roberts‘ affection.

Again. Rolling our eyes.

Overstreet and Roberts have been quietly dating since late spring. Four days ago, Chord was asked about Roberts in an interview with Ryan Seacrest, and he coyly said, “We’re having fun and we get along.”

Word is that Criss arrived at a Fox Animation Christmas party (hosted by Paris Hilton, naturally) and though he couldn’t stay long, he “made sure to get in time with Emma.” Apparently the two “chatted intimately,” but when a photographer asked to snap a photo of them together, she declined, which set off alarm bells.

It’s worth noting that while Roberts and Overstreet were getting to know each other this summer, he was on tour with his “Glee” castmates — including Criss. So it’s a huge stretch to assume that Criss and Roberts may have struck up a friendship that entitles them to chat at an industry party. A huuuuge stretch.

Frankly, we’re bored with the media trying to invent off-screen antics when it comes to the “Glee” cast. Call us when Overstreet and Criss are in a love triangle on-screen. That’d be something worth talking about!
