Tobey, now 49, was married for nine years to the 47-year-old jewelry designer until 2016. The two share a 17-year-old daughter and a 15-year-old son.

This weekend, Tobey attended the star-studded Michael Rubin 4th of July party. He was subsequently photographed with Lily, with his hand appearing to touch the small of her back.

The images quickly went viral as some speculated that the two were romantically involved, as some noted that Lily was born after the first Spider-Man movie was released.

Because people are freaks, someone then commented on Jennifer's jewelry Instagram account asking, "Why is your ex-husband banging someone 3 years older than your daughter?"

According to screenshots, Jennifer allegedly replied in a now-deleted comment, "I don't usually respond to such nonsense, but he was kindly helping a friend to her car. Being a good guy. And now he has blasted online for dating someone he is not."

She then reportedly added, "I am disengaging after this… But don’t believe everything you read (I’m sure you were taught that somewhere) Tobey is as good of a guy as it gets."
