Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak have a complicated relationship. The actress has even called their relationship “weird”.
The two made an appearance together at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar party. Their appearance now has fans asking the question: are they a couple or are they just good pals? In fact, it has been a topic of conversation for the former The Office co-stars for years. There is no straight answer to the question, simply put - the two have a complicated relationship.
Although they have been friends since their days on the hit NBC show, they have also dated on and off for years. Even during the times they were not a couple, Kaling and Novak remained very close. He was even a producer on The Mindy Project. In fact, they regularly appear on each other's social media accounts.
Their friendship is clearly very important to both of them. However, that doesn’t mean it is an easy relationship. Kaling told InStyle in 2015 her relationship with Novak was “weird as hell”.
"I will freely admit: my relationship with B.J. Novak is weird as hell. He is not my boyfriend, but he is not my best friend. I guess you could describe our relationship as a 'romantically charged camaraderie with loud arguments,' but I don't think Facebook would accept this as a new status," she revealed.

Along with rumors about their romance, there is a lot of buzz claiming Novak is the father of Kaling’s daughter Katherine. As her fans know the actress has never shared the identity of her baby daddy.
The relationship is definitely not one sided. Novak recently used Twitter to express his feelings toward Kaling. It was so moving, the actress cried. He shared the message on the day her highly anticipated movie A Wrinkle In Time was released.
"When I met @mindykaling she lived in a small apartment on Fairfax Ave. This is what's in front of that building today. Congrats Mindy and a future congrats to all those who see you in it and are inspired to do great things. @WrinkleInTime," shared Novak.
