Is recently separated Kris Jenner dating “Bachelor” cutie and grape-stomper Ben Flajnik? That’s what the gossip fairies want us to believe.

The two were spotted taking a romantic biking tour of Sonoma, where Flajnik’s family has a winery. According to the New York Daily News, they met when Ben appeared on her talk show and he invited her to come out.

But Flajnik says the rumors are a misunderstanding and he has been “caught in the crossfire.”

It’s platonic — a bit of a relief considering Ben is 30 and relatively intelligent. He claims he’s dating a nice girl in the wine biz, not a momager in the whine biz.
