Everyone Olivia Rodrigo Has Reportedly Dated, From Joshua Bassett to Zack Bia

Olivia Rodrigo may be this generation's breakup-anthem queen, but she doesn't kiss and tell. Like her music idol Taylor Swift, Rodrigo often finds solace in channeling heartbreak into lyrics, and the "Traitor" singer isn't afraid to get exceptionally raw and honest in her songs — but her music is where she draws the line. Rodrigo has never confirmed any of her rumored relationships, including her highly speculated romance with "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series" costar Joshua Bassett.

In her "Vampire" single, which was released on June 30, Rodrigo once again poured her heart out about a destructive relationship. Though she hasn't provided any hints about who the song might be about, fans have already begun to speculate that it might be inspired by her rumored ex, Zack Bia, due to one key lyric: "Six months of torture you sold as some forbidden paradise." Rodrigo and Bia reportedly dated for six months (more on that later), meaning that he just may be the most likely subject of Rodrigo's characteristically searing lyrics. Of course, Rodrigo hasn't publicly said a word about their relationship, much less any sort of heartbreak that may have resulted from it.

Rodrigo sparked similar speculation with her hit debut single "Drivers License," which garnered an instant cult following and also led to tons of speculation about Rodrigo's romantic life, though the artist always kept quiet about who inspired the song. "I totally understand people's curiosity with the specifics of who the song's about and what it's about, but to me, that's really the least important part of the song," she told Billboard in 2021. "It's resonating with people because of how emotional it is, and I think everything else is not important."

In her August 2023 Vogue cover story, Rodrigo played coy about her current relationship status. When asked if she was single, she responded, "I don't know!" adding, "I don't kiss and tell." Of the public's interest in her romantic life, Rodrigo also said, "It's an interesting thing to think about. I understand it. I could sit here and be like, 'I don't get why people do that,' but I do it so often."

While speaking to The New York Times for an August interview, Rodrigo shared a new revelation about her love life — one in which she expressed regrets about people she previously dated. "I had such a desire to live and experience things and make mistakes and grow after 'Sour' came out, I kind of felt this pressure to be this girl that I thought everyone expected me to be," she explained of how her 2021 album affected her life decisions. "And I think because of that pressure, maybe I did things that maybe I shouldn't have — dated people that I shouldn't have."

Although the singer-songwriter's social media tends to be a relationship-free zone, eagle-eyed fans can't help but speculate which rumored flame Rodrigo is going to write about next — and who some of her "Guts" songs could be about. Most recently, the "Teenage Dream" singer was linked to "Enola Holmes" star Louis Partridge.

Get a full rundown of Rodrigo's alleged dating history ahead.

Louis Partridge (October 2023)

Rodrigo's fans began to speculate she may be dating Partridge after photos of the two hanging out in London surfaced on social media on Oct. 30. One of the snaps captured the pair sharing a hug, while another pictured the two looking pretty close and sharing a laugh. Several other photos of Rodrigo posing with fans popped up on TikTok as well, with Partridge appearing in some.

The singer and "Enola Holmes" star haven't addressed speculation yet and reps for the two did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR's requests for comment.

Zack Bia (February 2022-August 2022)

On June 21, 2022, People confirmed that Rodrigo had a new love interest in her life: Zack Bia, a rising DJ and former boyfriend of singer Madison Beer. A source told the outlet that "they've been dating since the Super Bowl" and "really like each other."

The pair first sparked romance rumors in April 2022 when they were photographed smiling and leaving Bar Pitti in New York City, E! News reported. Prior to that, the two were also spotted hanging out at Bia's 2022 Super Bowl party in February of that year.

However, the pair's relationship appeared to come to an end six months later. "Their relationship sort of fizzled. They were casually dating but haven't spent time together in a while," a source told Us Weekly in August 2022. "There were no issues — they both have different work schedules and different friend groups."

Of course, since Rodrigo's song "Vampire" references a relationship that lasted six months, fans have speculated that Bia might have inspired it — indicating that their split was messier than it might have seemed at first. Neither Rodrigo nor Bia have ever commented on the relationship.


Adam Faze (June 2021-February 2022)

News started swirling about a romance between Rodrigo and Adam Faze after the music producer accompanied her to the "Space Jam: A New Legacy" premiere party in June 2021. While they never publicly confirmed the status of their relationship, it was reported that Faze was introduced to guests as Rodrigo's boyfriend. However, in February 2022, a source told People that the alleged couple went their separate ways.

Joshua Bassett (2019-August 2020)

Despite all the drama and cryptic messages that unfolded between the "HSMTMTS" costars in 2021, Rodrigo and Joshua Bassett never confirmed that they were an official couple. Presumably, they met in 2019 on the set of "HSMTMTS" where they played onscreen love interests. In March 2020, Rodrigo fueled romance rumors when she teased a new song on Instagram: "I wonder what I would say if I knew back then that brown-eyed boy would be my best friend and the one I gave my heart to."

In August 2020, speculations about the rumored pair fizzled after a JustJared report published a photo of Basset and singer-actress Sabrina Carpenter out enjoying each other's company in LA. Fast forward to January 2021, Rodrigo releases her debut single "Drivers License," which seemingly centered on her alleged relationship with Bassett.

Fans strongly believe that "Drivers License" is about Rodrigo and Bassett's rumored relationship. However, they've both refrained from mentioning one another's names when asked about the song's inspiration in interviews.

"The cool thing about music is people will relate it to their own personal experience, and lately, people have been making it about other people's experience and assuming things and just making it their own thing," Bassett told POPSUGAR in March 2021, ahead of his self-titled-EP debut.
