After Stern brought up the rumors about Jewel, Costner said:

No, Jewel and I are friends. We’ve never gone out ever. She’s special, and I don’t want, I don’t want these rumors to ruin our friendship…She’s special to me. She’s beautiful enough to go out with.”

The Horizon star continued:

I don’t want the press to ruin this for us, because…I’ve had conversations with her, text wise…and she’s been through a lot herself, and so we have a friendship. We don’t have a romance, and we’ve not dated.”

“It just has never happened for us. She’s everything you might think, but it just hasn’t happened.”
