Jaden Hossler and Nessa Barrett started dating in the first half of 2021.

Jaden and Nessa have long frequented the same social circles. They both spent considerable time at the Sway House before it shut down in February 2021.

Jaden first established himself in the social media sphere as an original member of Sway House, obtaining 9.4 million followers on TikTok and 4.5 million on Instagram. He launched his musical career around the same time as other Sway House members like Griffin Johnson.

Nessa first skyrocketed to fame on social media, as well. She started dating Josh Richards, the creator of the hit song, "Still Softish," in the second half of 2019. Often hailed as a dream couple, Nessa and Josh announced that they decided to go their separate ways in June 2020.

Jaden and Nessa's first few weeks as a couple were somewhat overshadowed by drama.

Nessa and her ex, Josh, seemed to have parted ways on amicable terms. Josh was good friends with Jaden — at least until the news about Nessa and Jaden got out. Meanwhile, Nessa had a much-publicized falling-out with Madison Lewis, the Chicken Girls actress and social media influencer Jaden dated on and off between 2019 and March 2021.

In an intriguing turn of events, Josh and Madison Lewis sparked dating rumors in the spring of 2022 by appearing in a string of photos and short videos together. Speculation about their relationship is now at an all-time high.

"We were friends before and we made TikToks before," Mads told BFFs host David Portnoy. She did, however, use the same phrase to describe her ex, Christian Plourde, in the past.
