Nothing to see here, folks. Tim Burton's 12-year relationship with Helena Bonham Carter has been called into question by the New York Post -- which published grainy photos of the Beetlejuice director, 55, kissing a mysterious blonde woman on the lips. The British paper reports that the surprising photos were taken in late September outside a movie theater in Hempstead.

But a rep for the British actress, 47, scoffed at the story, explaining to Us Weekly in a statement: "This is an absolute nonsense story, the pictures were taken whilst they were out and the large group includes family, friends and work colleagues."

PHOTOS: Couples who haven't wed -- yet!

After meeting on the set of Planet of the Apes in 2001, Parker and Burton went on to have two kids together: Billy, 10, and Nell, 5. Something of an unconventional pair, the couple live in two adjoining houses in London. They have never wed.
