Sabrina Carpenter Was Just Straight Up Asked Whether She Refers to Barry Keoghan as Her Boyfriend (2024)

I know what you're thinking: But wait, it can't possibly be...? Except, it probably is! 2023 was truly the year of the Fever Dream Couple™️, from Avril Lavigne and Tyga to Rosalía and Jeremy Allen White. And this year, that tradition continued with pint-sized pop star Sabrina Carpenter and delightfully Irish actor, Barry Keoghan. From the moment these two were rumored to be seeing each other, the internet collectively lost its sh*t. Case in point: these fan-made "Nonsense" outros about one of the duo's first dinner outings.

That being said! You're probably wondering how these two are doing now that they've done everything from attending Sabrina's concerts together to going to the Met Freakin' Gala together. Find a full timeline of Sabrina Carpenter and Barry Keoghan's relationship ~below.~

Sabrina graced Cosmo's digital cover and spoke a bit about how she approaches romance (without naming names, of course). "A lot of it, for me, has been fate. I know that's super broad, but I don't actively look for it," she said of her dating life. "The relationships that I actually want to put my energy into have to be so interesting or invigorating because they take me away from the other things I love. So yeah, it’s fun and it’s messy. I think I’m still just at this place where I’m really enjoying the newness of all of it."

Barry appeared in Sabrina's “Please, Please, Please” music video, where the two play a Bonnie and Clyde kinda criminal couple. Some of the most 👀 lines, you ask? “I beg you don’t embarrass me / Mother f*cker,” and “I heard that you’re an actor / So act like a stand-up guy.”

June 15, 2024

The couple headed to celebrity hotspot Chiltern Firehouse in London and pulled up with security holding umbrellas over them.

June 17, 2024

During an interview with Rolling Stone, the musician dodges queries about her romance with Barry when asked if she refers to him as her boyfriend, saying, "How do I skirt around this question?"

"The [dating] pool is the pool, and when you meet people that feel authentic and are so brilliant and amazing in every way, that’s what you do," she then notes before adding, "Obviously, I write songs about exactly how I feel, so I guess I can’t be so surprised that people are interested in who and what those songs are about. That’s something that comes with the territory."

Aaand that brings us to rn! That! Said!!!! These are fast times and we'll be adding any updates as they come.
