Want the latest Madelyn Cline boyfriend news? Well, you're not alone with that one, because ever since Outer Banks costars, Madelyn Cline and Chase Stokes split, fans have been desperate for updates on the actress' love life—especially with these latest Pete Davidson dating rumors...

As OBX fans will know, Madelyn (aka Sarah Cameron) stars alongside her real-life ex, in the hit Netflix series. The co-stars turned lovers confirmed their relationship in 2020, but sadly called it quits in 2021 and since then, despite frequent reconciliation rumors, the pair have gone on to confirm new relationships.

In the case of Chase Stokes' girlfriend sitch, the actor is now dating country singer, Kelsea Ballerini and while Madelyn Cline confirmed that she was also 'taken' back in December 2022, it seems we have a ton of new developments in that department—from a break up to a potential new romance...

Who is Madelyn Cline's boyfriend?  

So, is Madelyn Cline single right now, or is there a new man in the picture? Now, this sitch needs some unpacking because until recently, it was thought that Madelyn was in a relationship with Jackson Guthy—after confirming she was 'taken' back in 2022.

However, the summer of 2023 ushered in break-up rumors after eagle-eyed fans spotted that Madelyn had deleted a ton of 'soft launch' posts of her 'beau' from her Instagram and now of course, there are these Pete Davidson rumors...

Are Madelyn Cline and Pete Davidson dating?

As of September 2023, following Pete Davidson's split from Chase Sui Wonders in August, it's now being reported that the former SNL star is dating Madelyn Cline.

US Weekly first reported the news, with a source claiming: "Pete and Madelyn are dating. They spent the night together at the Beverly Hills Hotel and then had breakfast together there the next morning," before adding, "They were really low-key and kept things casual, wearing baseball hats."

Of course, as of yet, neither Pete nor Madelyn have confirmed or even commented on the rumors, so for now, we'll have to watch this space. 

Madelyn Cline and Jackson Guthy

Before these Madelyn Cline and Pete Davidson rumors hit the headlines, it was previously rumored that Madelyn was seeing singer, Jackson Guthy (though neither Madelyn nor Jackson ever officially confirmed things) after fans spotted him making a few cameos on her Instagram feed, back in 2022.

There was also the case of that interview with The Cut in December 2022, where she was described as being "at the Malibu home she shares with her boyfriend and dogs." 

In February 2023, Madelyn went on to officially confirm, once and for all that she was indeed "taken" in an interview with Cosmopolitan. She said: "I am happily taken. All I know is he makes me incredibly happy. And I’ve truly never been happier, and I feel very, very empowered," before adding: "Love is tight. And when you find something like that, you fight for that shit. And also, you fight to keep it yours, you know?" N'aww! 

Jackson then seemingly hard-launched their relationship on May 25, 2023 after he posted a carousel to his Instagram feed, that featured a picture of them kissing, which he also tagged Madelyn in (see slide five).

However, rumors started swirling in the summer of 2023 that the pair had split, after fans spotted that Madelyn had unfollowed him—and deleted a number of the posts that he cameoed in.

She also hasn't posted any new pics or videos of her beau in recent months, despite sharing a sneak peek into her travels to Mykonos and the Maldives.

However, on Thursday, 14 September, 2023, Madelyn shared a post of her attending a New York Jets NFL game at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium.

As part of the carousel, she shared a snap from behind, which showed her cozying up to someone who had their arms around her. No-one was tagged in the photo so fans have been questioning!

And then there's the fact that Jackson still follows her on Insta and has not removed any of his posts, so there's still something of a question mark over their relationship status...

Neither Jackson nor Madelyn have officially commented on the rumors, so there's no way to know for sure (at the moment) whether the pair are still together or not. Though these Pete and Madelyn reports are definitely telling...

And that's officially the latest Madelyn Cline boyfriend 2023 news—so when there's anything more to know, we'll keep you updated right here!

Madelyn Cline boyfriend history—official relationships and rumored boyfriends

So, as mentioned it's thought that Madelyn is (or was, who knows) dating American singer Jackson Guthy, with rumors first beginning to circulate back in May 2022. She appeared to take the 26-year-old—who previously dated YouTube star Olivia Jade Giannulli until 2019—as her date to a wedding.

Then, in June 2022, the pair were pictured having lunch in Malibu and going on grocery runs together. Madelyn herself obviously then confirmed in February 2023 that she was in a relationship (but didn't mention Jackson by name) and continued to share infrequent updates on their life together.

She confessed that same month that she was keen to keep her private life much closer to her chest going forward, telling Today that she wanted to steer away from a public relationship.

Madelyn said: "Some people can do it—I can’t. If you give everything, like, 100 percent of your energy, away, where’s the rest for yourself? You finally understand why people in the public eye keep their circles small.

"I realized there are parts of my life that only me or one other person are entitled to. I prefer it that way. It also just makes things more special. That’s usually how relationships are.”

Of course, rumors are now swirling that they pair have broken up, but with no official confirmation either way, we can only speculate...

2. Madelyn Cline and Zach Bia

Back in December 2021, shortly after Madelyn and Chase were reunited at the People’s Choice Awards, she was linked to Zach Bia, an American 'socialite' and DJ. The pair were pictured leaving an LA restaurant together just before her 24th birthday.

However, the DJ, 26, has insisted they are just friends. Speaking in January on the BFFs with Dave Portnoy and Josh Richards podcast, he said: "We are not dating. We hang out all the time."

3. Madelyn Cline and Ross Butler

Shortly before that, in November 2021, Madelyn was linked to actor Ross Butler. The 32-year-old starred in another Netflix show 13 Reasons Why (he also played Trevor, Peter Kavinsky's BFF, in Netflix's To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You).

Ross confirmed to TMZ that they were “just friends”. However, he then proceeded to confuse things by leaving a flirty comment on one of Madelyn's Instagram posts—sparking rumors once more...

4. Madelyn Cline and Chase Stokes

Madelyn's last—and only—confirmed public relationship was with Chase. She met the 30-year-old actor on the set of Outer Banks after the pair played love interests. They started to fall for one another in real life in April 2020 when they were forced to quarantine together amid the first pandemic lockdown (like Justin and Hailey Bieber)—and they went public with their romance that June.

However, after frequently appearing in public together and sharing loved-up social media posts, the couple went quiet in 2021. In October of that year, a source confirmed to E! News that they had split. Meanwhile, an insider told People that "they were trying to work things out privately but broke up a couple of months ago". 

Fans were confused in February when new promotional material for their Netflix series showed them holding hands. However, Madelyn insisted to Us Weekly at a Hollywood event in March that they were simply in character filming new scenes.

Since then, Chase has, as mentioned, landed in a new relationship with Kelsea Ballerini, the American country pop singer. Kelsea is recently divorced, having ended her marriage to fellow singer Morgan Evans last year.
