OK, so they're together, but not like together together...
But -- and there's always a but -- the pair

A lot of accusers have spoken out about Bill Cosby, but Beverly Johnson is the first to forgive him.
The former model had opened up last year about a scary incident she had with the Cosby Show star in the '80s. She claimed that he drugged her during an audition and dragged her down the stairs by her arm after she realized what was happening and started swearing at him.
While she explains she was never attacked sexually, the entire experience was still terribly traumatic. Ever since the actor's alleged victims have begun to come forward, dozens of women have bravely faced the press to share their stories.
But now, Beverly is offering up her forgiveness.
"I forgive you."
The 62-year-old added that she hopes all the media attention and coverage the controversy has received will actually inspire action within our society, saying:
"I'm going to leave that to the justice department. I just feel that he's a lighting rod for a much bigger conversation and that conversation would be the rape culture in America."
We applaud Beverly for her bravery — along with every victim who has come forward — and we hope everyone is able to eventually heal.
