Joshua Bassett has been spotted out and about with Sabrina Carpenter! Are they still together and what is his dating history?
Joshua Bassett’s rumoured love triangle with Sabrina Carpenter and Olivia Rodrigo sparked a lot of questions about each of the singers’ love lives and whether either of the girls were actually dating Josh.
It’s rumoured Josh dated Olivia in 2020 before moving on to Sabrina, but does he have a girlfriend now?
If you’ve managed to get your head around the Josh/Sabrina/Olivia love triangle, it’s time to take a closer look at Josh’s relationship history.
It seems Josh is single at the moment, as there’s no sign of a girlfriend on his Instagram where he’s been plugging his latest singles, ‘Lie Lie Lie’ and ‘Only a Matter of Time’.
Some fans believe he’s dating Sabrina Carpenter, but there’s more on that below…
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’.
The two Disney prodigies are still yet to publicly confirm or deny a romance between them but they were recetly spotted on a potential date night!
Josh and Sabrina were seen by eagle-eyed fans attending a Harry Styles concert at Madison Square Gardens in early-October.
The Love On Tour sighting is the first time the pair have been seen in public for months – the current status of their relationship is unclear but they remain on good terms.
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.”
