Frenchman Ben Arfa has been training away from the first team and rumours circulating on social media had suggested that the pair had come to blows.
Pardew told reporters: "I have seen that. It's an absolute load of rubbish. He came and shook my hand at the end and that was it."
Ben Arfa was left out of the matchday squad as Newcastle beat Cardiff City 3-0 at St James's Park.
