elle– Olivia Rodrigo’s music may have sparked rumors she once dated her High School Musical: The Musical: The Series co-star Joshua Bassett, and the two had some breakup drama, but Rodrigo has moved on. E! reported on June 30 that the 18-year-old singer is dating someone new, 24-year-old producer Adam Faze. A source close to Rodrigo told the outlet that she brought Faze as her plus one to the Space Jam 2 premiere and introduced him as “her boyfriend.”
So who is Faze? Get to know Rodrigo’s new partner and everything that has come out about their relationship so far.
Faze and Rodrigo were seen showing PDA during their Space Jam 2 date.
Rodrigo isn’t hiding her relationship with Faze at all, E! reported. During their June 29 Space Jam 2 outing, Rodrigo not only introduced Faze as her boyfriend, but the two were affectionate at Six Flags Magic Mountain, where the event took place. “Olivia was in great spirits celebrating Space Jam 2 last night,” the source said. “They were really cute together and weren’t trying to hide their affection at all.” The source said that Faze and Rodrigo were “together the entire night” and were seen “holding hands at one point.”
A separate party goer, Stuart Brazell said, per E!, that “the two of them together felt comfortable and newish, and it seemed like he also knew a lot of people there. It just felt like comfortable, cuddly, new young love.”
Faze and Rodrigo dated a few months before going public and were “getting serious” in early July 2021.
E! was also told by a source that Faze and Rodrigo secretly started dating weeks before their Space Jam 2 outing. “[They] met through industry friends” the source said. “It’s only been a few months, but she seems really happy with him and they are definitely dating exclusively and getting serious.”
Faze and Rodrigo follow each other on Instagram but haven’t posted publicly about their relationship yet.
While Faze and Rodrigo attended their first event together at the end of June, the two are keeping their relationship offline for now. Faze’s personal Instagram is now private as reports of their dating break. His professional Instagram, itsnotafaze, is still public, and Rodrigo follows it.
Rodrigo, meanwhile, has not shared any posts about Faze yet on her own account. Faze isn’t the first partner of a musician to make his Instagram private: Ariana Grande’s now-husband Dalton Gomez also made his Instagram private when they were first reported to be romantically involved.
