Before Bizaardvark, Olivia played the lead role in the 2015 film An American Girl: Grace Stirs Up Success.

Rodrigo signed with Interscope Records after displaying her singing and songwriting skills in High School Musical: The Musical Series: The Series. Her debut single, Drivers License, broke Spotify streaming records within weeks of its release.

This piece will look at Olivia’s love life. Olivia Rodrigo is single.

Olivia Rodrigo’s heartbreaking debut single is reportedly about rumored ex-boyfriend Joshua Bassett

Olivia Rodrigo heartbreaking debut single has received widespread praise, with some critics comparing her to megastars such as Taylor Swift and Lorde. Taylor revealed that she is a fan of Olivia by referring to Olivia as her baby via Instagram.

Rodrigo’s delivery of the ballad is mighty impressive, but the song’s popularity isn’t purely based on her faultless vocals. The song is rumored to be a story about her failed romance with co-star Joshua Bassett.

Olivia and Bassett fueled relationship rumors after the debut of HSMTMTS. They didn’t confirm their relationship, but they appeared regularly on each other’s social media feeds. Rumors of a breakup flared up in August 2020 after Olivia posted a TikTok with the caption, “And that’s on failed relationships.” Joshua seemingly confirmed the breakup when he was spotted grabbing a bite with Sabrina Carpenter.

Sabrina and Bassett didn’t confirm that they were dating, but most fans were convinced that it wasn’t a coincidence. Olivia added gasoline to the fire with her lyrics on Drivers License. She sang:

“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.”

Well, Sabrina is blonde and happens to be four years older than Olivia. Rodrigo also sings, ‘guess you didn’t mean what you wrote in that song about me.’ She is most likely referring to Bassett’s Anyone Else – a love song he wrote while filming High School Musical. Joshua is also responsible for teaching Olivia how to drive, and the song is titled Drivers License

All of this is speculation, but it is very likely that there is some truth behind it all. Whether true or not, Olivia is reaping the rewards. People continue to tune in to the song to get a taste of the rumored drama and several minutes of Olivia’s musical excellence.

Joshua’s song Lie Lie Lie was reportedly a reply to Olivia, but he explained that it had nothing to do with her

Before Joshua released Lie Lie Lie, the song was rumored to be a reply to Olivia’s hit song. However, Joshua took to Instagram to clarify that he wrote the song about an old friend who betrayed him. Joshua wrote:

“I wrote ‘Lie, Lie, Lie’ after I found out a friend had been lying about me behind my back for a long time. It always hurts to hear that someone you thought you could trust would throw you under the bus when it benefits them. It happens to all of us, and I think all you can do is seek out people that build you up rather than tear you down.”

Lie Lie Lie might not be about Olivia, but Joshua has plenty of music coming out later this year. One of the songs will likely address the rumored relationship. Some of the song titles include I’m Still in Love with You, Best Friends (Lovers on the Side), and One & Only, and a track alongside Sabrina Carpenter titled We Both Know.

Olivia’s ex Ethan Wacker denied being the subject of Drivers License

Olivia and Ethan Wacker met on the set of the Disney show Bizaardvark in 2016. The couple started dating in July 2018 but kept their relationship secret for six months. On 2nd January 2019, Ethan celebrated their six-month anniversary via a since-deleted Instagram post. “Happy 6 months!” Ethan wrote. “You are the greatest.”

Days after their post, they went on a romantic vacation in Hawaii. They shared plenty of PDA-filled photos of their getaway. The pair confirmed their breakup in August 2019 by deleting all photos of each other on social media.

It seems like they had an amicable breakup as, in May 2020, Olivia congratulated Ethan for landing a spot in Vanderbilt University. “Ahhhh I’m so proud!” Olivia wrote. “He’s the best!” After the release of Drivers License, one TikTok fan speculated that Ethan was the subject of the song. Ethan offered the following response in denial: “Nope. I treated her well.”
