Now we finally know that Olivia Rodrigo has moved on from her "Driver's License" heartbreak. Following the release of that mega-hit single, fans were convinced that the song was about Olivia's High School Musical: The Musical: The Series co-star Joshua Bassett, who broke up with her and appeared to be dating another co-star, Sabrina Carpenter.
But, it looks like Olivia has left that all in the past. She's been rumored to have been dating someone new for a few months now, but nothing was confirmed until July 2021 when they were caught by the paparazzi.
Who is Olivia Rodrigo dating?
In June 2021, E! News reported that the singer was currently seeing producer Adam Faze. Olivia reportedly took Adam as her plus-one to the Space Jam 2 premiere and introduced him as her boyfriend.
"Olivia was in great spirits celebrating Space Jam 2 last night," a source told the outlet. "They were really cute together and weren't trying to hide their affection at all."
The pair were reportedly "holding hands at one point," per the source, and Stuart Brazell even shared a TikTok of Adam with his arms wrapped around Olivia.
"The two of them together felt comfortable and newish, and it seemed like he also knew a lot of people there," Stuart told E! News. "It just felt like comfortable, cuddly, new young love."
In July 2021, the pair appeared to confirm their romance when the paparazzi caught them kissing. According to Page Six, the two have actually known each other for years but started out as friends.
Adam is a young producer who's been working in the entertainment industry for years. He's a former contributor for Forbes, where his bio describes him as a "storyteller and creative entrepreneur focused on one thing and one thing only: the future of entertainment." His current film-producing credits include Day by Day and Who Am I? in addition to various other shorts. He's also the co-founder of the production company Must B Nice.
The pair have reportedly been linked for the past few months after meeting "through industry friends," as E! News's source said.
"It's only been a few months but she seems really happy with him and they are definitely dating exclusively and getting serious," the inside source told the outlet.
There were previously rumors that Olivia and Conan Gray were linked.
Rumors began circulating suggesting that Olivia was dating singer Conan Gray following Taylor Swift's enlistment of Conan and Olivia to help her leak the newly re-recorded versions of two of her biggest songs from "Fearless," which was first released in 2008. The album was officially released on April 9, but Olivia and Conan posted two videos together dancing and lip-syncing along to her music the day before.
Although the videos they posted were undeniably adorable and immediately sparked speculation from fans, there had been no indication that Conan and Olivia were dating. In fact, this was not the first time that Olivia and Conan had been rumored to be dating; Olivia even clarified in March 2021 what was actually going on between them.
In an interview with Capital in March 2021, Olivia made it clear that her relationship with Conan was platonic. “Conan’s a friend of mine, and the guy who produces most of my music produces most of his,” Olivia told Capital Breakfast with Ronan Kemp. “We’re just pals and I think he’s so brilliant.”
She and Conan apparently started hanging out because they share a producer, and they became friends from there.
