Joshua and Olivia Rodrigo were rumored to be dating but that relationship seems over
In early 2020, Joshua and Olivia Rodrigo were rumored to be in a relationship. The pair play each other’s love interest on-screen, and though they didn’t confirm it, they were believed to be dating in real life.
However, in August 2020, Joshua posted a TikTok with the caption, ‘And that’s on failed relationships,’ featuring a song written and sang by Rodrigo on HSMTMTS. The post sparked breakup rumors, but they quickly died down as there were no follow up posts.
Olivia rekindled the rumors in early 2021, with the release of her new single Drivers License. In the song, Rodrigo references a broken relationship. She talks about driving through the streets past the house of a former lover. “Cause you said forever, now I drive alone past your street,” Rodrigo sings.
She doesn’t talk mention Bassett in the song, but fans have concluded that he is the subject of Olivia’s heartbreaking single.
Olivia Rodrigo’s new single suggests that Joshua is dating Sabrina Carpenter
Olivia’s song not only gave credence to her rumored relationship with Joshua, but it also suggested that he has moved on with Sabrina Carpenter. Sabrina and Joshua recently appeared on each other’s TikToks, sparking rumors that they might be dating.
“And you’re probably with that blonde girl/ Who always made me doubt/ She’s so much older than me/ She’s everything I’m insecure about,” Rodrigo sings. Sabrina happens to be blonde and four years older than Olivia. Coincidence? We think not.
Older lyrics to the song read ‘brunette girl’, but it is believed that Olivia changed it to ‘blonde girl’ as a power move. Joshua is set to release a single titled Lie Lie Lie on 14th January 2021. He will likely address Rodrigo and Carpenter in the song. We will keep an ear out and fill you in with all the details.
