The 28-year-old actress set tongues wagging earlier this week when she appeared to confirm that she and Cara Delevingne were a couple after she commented "mine" under one of the 'Paper Towns' star's new photographs.

However, she has seemingly back tracked on her subtle statement now as just hours later she claimed she had been on board a flight and her account was tapped into by someone else - implying that she didn't post the comment.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, the blonde beauty could be seen standing at the airport and wrote: "When you just get off a flight with no WiFi and find out your Instagram got hacked. Thank god for @remi.franklin fixing it. (sic)"

Ashley and Cara, 26, sparked romance rumours back in April when they were spotted holding hands in New York after they met on the set of their new movie 'Her Smell'.

The pair were then caught on camera sharing a passionate smooch a few months later when they arrived back in the Big Apple following a trip together in the UK.

However, despite their public displays of affection, the 'Pretty Little Liars' star refused to confirm nor deny whether they were together when pushed by press recently.

Ashley was determined not to spill the beans because she thinks relationships should be kept "private" and she's not one to boast about her love life.

She told at the time: "I think it's the best way in any relationship. I've always been very private about them, and I think it's just better."

Meanwhile, Cara is no stranger to dating in the public eye as she's previously had trysts with 20-year-old Paris Jackson - the daughter of the late Michael Jackson - singer St Vincent, 35, and 'Fast And Furious' star Michelle Rodriguez, 40.
