Some fans believe he’s dating Sabrina Carpenter, but there’s more on that below…

Is Joshua Bassett dating Sabrina Carpenter?

Toward the end of last year it looked like Josh and Sabrina were dating but neither of them have publicly addressed whether they’re still together or not.

In July they started hanging out together, posting pictures of their outings and their co-ordinated Halloween costumes in October, but they haven’t said anything about their relationship since Olivia dropped the now-famous heartbreak track that was ‘Drivers License’.

Is Olivia Rodrigo Joshua Bassett’s ex-girlfriend?

Olivia and Josh have stayed silent on speculation they were dating last year, but if you decode the ‘Drivers License’ lyrics it seems the High School Musical: The Musical – The Series co-stars were an item for a short time.

Their relationship on-screen as Nini and Ricky only fuelled speculation they were together, especially when Josh admitted he brought their off-screen relationship to some of the most romantics scenes in the series.

He told LA Times in January 2020: “Every single time, I would change it to something else that was specific to her and I, and getting her reaction out of it was the best thing in the world.”

In the same interview Olivia said she “loved” Josh, adding: “He’s my best friend, so that really made the acting authentic and really truthful. It was like I wasn’t acting.”
