Is Kelsea Ballerini Friends With Chase Stokes’ Ex Madelyn Cline?


Kelsea Ballerini doesn’t feel worried about “the other girl,” who is Madelyn Cline, Chase Stokes’ previous girlfriend before Kelsea started dating him. Although Kelsea and Chase tried to keep their romance private, it became quite evident through their interactions on Instagram and public outings that they were together.

In February 2023, Kelsea confirmed her relationship with the “Outer Banks” actor on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast, revealing that she initiated contact with him through a direct message. Both Kelsea and Chase have had complex relationship histories: Kelsea finalized her divorce from ex-husband Morgan Evans in November 2022, while Chase went through a public breakup with Madelyn Cline in November 2021.

Madelyn and Chase had the added challenge of working together on the show “Outer Banks” after their breakup, where they play each other’s love interests. Despite this potentially awkward situation, it doesn’t seem to have affected Chase’s current relationship with Kelsea.


At a recent event, Kelsea, Chase, and Madelyn were all present. While there was anticipation of tension, everything went smoothly. Kelsea and Chase walked the red carpet hand-in-hand, both wearing red. Madelyn looked stunning on the red carpet by herself. Although there was no interaction during or before the event, it was clear there was no animosity between Kelsea and Madelyn afterward. Madelyn posted pictures of her red carpet appearance on Instagram, and Kelsea left a heartfelt comment praising her beauty. Madelyn responded with an equally sweet message.

Madelyn has moved on since her relationship with Chase. After their breakup, she began dating singer-songwriter Jackson Guthy in June 2022. They kept their romance private, but in March 2023, Madelyn shared a rare glimpse into their relationship on Instagram for Jackson’s birthday. Despite seeming content, it was noticed in July 2023 that they unfollowed each other on social media, suggesting they may have split. Rumors began circulating that Madelyn is now dating Pete Davidson, although neither has confirmed the relationship. It seems Madelyn is embracing life and new connections.
