Why would a guy get defensive when someone brings up how close you are?

A friend told him that he talks to me a lot more than he does to everyone else and that we are always together and he got really defensive - why would he be like this?
He could be embarrassed, misinterpreted it as a criticism or malicious gossiping, sick of gossipers involving themselves in his friendships, getting a lot of annoying jokes/insinuations/attempts to stir and have got fed up of it.

Ask him.
There is absolutely no way random strangers on the internet can guess. He might really like you and be embarrassed that someone else appears to have noticed, or he might not especially like you and be embarrassed that someone else thinks he does. Like someone else said, ask him.
