Actor Chase Stokes, best known for playing John B in the Netflix series Outer Banks, posted a series of photos on Instagram on Friday. In one of the photos, the 30-year-old actor is seen at an NFL game along with actor Kelsea Ballerini – the country music singer. The picture has sparked rumors that they are dating.
Here’s Chase’s Instagram post:
Neither Chase nor Ballerini has confirmed or said anything about whether they are dating. However, going by the picture, they sure are quite close.
Stokes began his acting career with tiny television appearances on shows like Tell Me Your Secrets, Daytime Divas, and Stranger Things. Before reading for the role of Topper and later John B, he first declined an invitation to try out for Outer Banks in February 2019. Positive reviews followed the release of the first season on April 15, 2020, and the confirmation of a second season came in July.
Stokes revealed that he was seeing Madelyn Cline, his Outer Banks co-star, in June 2020. They separated in October 2021.
In contrast, Ballerini started dating Australian country music performer Morgan Evans in March 2016. On Christmas Day 2016, they got engaged, and they wed on December 2, 2017, in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Ballerini and Evans confirmed their divorce on August 29, 2022. Ballerini and Evans’ divorce was officially finalized on November 15, 2022, according to information released on November 3, 2022.
The duo’s picture together has got their fans buzzing.
