Despite rumors to the contrary — fueled by a free trip to St.-Tropez for Jon Gosselin and his girlfriend Hailey Glassman — Ed Hardy designer Christian Audigier is definitely not going into business with the reality dad.

“I never said I was going to do a line with Jon Gosselin. I don’t want to do a line with Jon Gosselin,” he tells E! News.

And why would he? Audigier said he’s never worked with a celebrity on a clothing line, and if he was ever going to, it would’ve been with Michael Jackson.

“I invited him to my birthday,” Audigier says of Jackson. “And he showed up. It was his last public appearance. He was testing [the public mood about him] at my party. So we became friends. He told me one day he would like to collaborate with me on a collection.”

Well, not this week, anyway…
