No need to download another dating app – the rumors aren't true: Amy Schumer did not meet her handsome new boyfriend online.

The hilarious actress responded to reports that she first hooked up with Chicago-based furniture designer Ben Hanisch through app Bumble while simultaneously announcing that he'd join her at the Golden Globes.

"#tbt me and my date to the globes #roadmanager," Schumer wrote alongside a throwback photo of her and her sister. "My bf will be there too and we did NOT meet on bumble. Great site just not how we met."

Schumer, 34, also denied using the app through Twitter, on Wednesday, writing, "Please let the record show I have never in my life been on Bumble."

Bumble, unlike some other popular dating sites, requires the woman make contact with her matches first.

The Good Wife star Josh Charles even got involved in the dialogue, responding to Schumer's tweet with "What's that?"

"It's a hair product," the Golden Globe-nominated star wrote back. "I prefer the old fashioned way #prostitution."

Schumer unveiled her new relationship just earlier this week, and later shared a cuddly photo with Hanisch to Instagram.

"Amy is so, so happy," a source previously told PEOPLE of the new relationship. "She calls him her boyfriend and says he constantly tells her how pretty, sexy and perfect she is."
