Ballerini posted a clip on TikTok of her sitting in front of a screenshot by DeuxMoi that included comments about her alleged romance with the actor.

“I know, I know, I know. stop reading, stop reading stop looking But what’s up guys. What? Let’s not do this,” the star – who divorced husband Morgan Evans last year – said in the video.

Meanwhile, the caption on her post read, “I’m about to break up Internet 5 safely,” along with a laughing emoji.

It’s not clear what exactly Ballerini was referring to in the screenshot, which included a photo Stokes posted of the couple at a soccer game, as well as direct messages from online trolls.

In a DM, someone claimed that the musician couldn’t date Stokes because she was “too busy asking the manager of Soho House Nash all the time, coming in all the time after the last call.”

Stokes shared a carousel of snaps, one of which showed him and Ballerini from behind as they snuggled up in the stands and enjoyed the game.

“Go vols,” Ballerini replied to the post, referring to the University of Tennessee team.

‘ Appreciate the hospitality, my man!’ Stokes commented on the post, while Kelsea left three white heart emojis.

The speculation comes after the two-time Grammy nominee revealed last month why she decided to end her four-year marriage to compatriot Morgan Evans.

“For a while it was kind of, ‘okay, this is just a new phase of a relationship,’ because relationships go through seasons, right? And it won’t always be butterflies and rainbows,” the Tennessee native said on the iHeart Radio podcast “Doin’ Our Best.”

“For a long time I was like, ‘Oh, that’s just… the glitter is wearing off. It happens.” And then you get into a phase where you wait for it to come back. And sometimes it doesn’t.’

“At the end of the day, it’s such a disservice and a disgrace to yourself when you know something is wrong and you stay,” Ballerini told host Jade Iovine.

Kelsea and the 37-year-old from Australia originally met in 2016 while co-hosting the CMC Awards in Australia.

On August 29, 2022, Ballerini announced that she and Evans were divorcing. The divorce was finalized this year.

Meanwhile, Chase was last linked to his Outer Banks co-star Madelyn Cline, 25. The actors – who met while filming the show’s first season – ended their relationship in November 2021 after a year together, but were later rumored to be seeing each other again.
