Chase Stokes and Kelsea Ballerini: Dating or not? Timeline Analysis of Their Relationship
Due to her ongoing absence, Hoda Kotb appears on “Today” in a pre-recorded segment.
She’s making a claim! Fans are already pulling for Kelsea Ballerini and Chase Stokes despite the fact that they haven’t officially announced their relationship.
They were first seen together during the College Football Playoff National Championship in Los Angeles in January 2023, which is when the country artist and the Outer Banks actor were first connected. Stokes sneakily included a cuddly shot of himself sitting next to Ballerini in a slideshow on Instagram the same month.
Little recap,” the Marylander wrote beneath the carousel. Ballerini responded, “Go vols.”
The “Hole in the Bottle” singer at that time published a photo dump with the description “New boot goofin.” In one photo, she was wearing a baseball cap to represent Knoxville, Tennessee, her hometown, and Stokes unabashedly praised the outfit in the comments.
Ballerini commented on the rumors of their relationship via TikTok, but neither she nor the Beach House star quickly addressed the subject. Following her breakup with Morgan Evans, her January 2023 upload revealed a screenshot of a DeuxMoi submission regarding her love life, including suggestions she was flirting with someone other than Stokes.
She said, “I know, I know, I know,” in the video. Stop reading right now. Give up looking. So, guys, what’s going on. What? We shouldn’t do this.
In August 2022, the CMA Award winner announced on social media that she and Evans had separated after five years of marriage. That month, she filed for divorce.
A source exclusively revealed to Us Weekly that Ballerini and Evans had “been working on their marriage for many years and even tried treatment” prior to their breakup as news of the singers’ split made headlines. The insider continued, “They ultimately agreed that they had no choice but to formally divorce.
In November 2022, the couple reached a divorce settlement. Ballerini and the Australian crooner have both been open about dealing with the fallout from their public breakup.
The “Heartfirst” performer told CBS Mornings in October 2022, “I think when there’s a significant life decision like that, it’s not a sudden one. And a lot occurs before that information is made public. I’m currently engaged in a healing process. It’s not a mess. It simply didn’t work; it’s not like it’s volatile. And when you’re thinking, “Oh, my god,” it can be challenging to wrap your mind around that tale. This is a good individual. I’m also a decent person. Because it’s simply not good enough anymore.”
