What does "not the case" means when someone says it?

I heard this many times when someone will tell me this when I ask them something. Does it mean no?

    • I was asking my boyfriend why he hasn't been talking to me and acting strange. I told him if he wasn't interesting me anymore I understand. then he said not the case and said he's been really busy.

    • he's saying he's still interested in you.

    • He barely talks to me now. He can at least say hi to me occasionally. I'm the one talk first then he always makes some kind of excuse saying he's busy or sick
