Who is Joshua Bassett’s girlfriend in 2023?
The short answer to this question is, Joshua is single and not dating anyone in 2023. However, since December 2020, Joshua has been spreading the “in love” vibe. Yes, the handsome devil may just be in a relationship with someone we’re sure many of you might know.
On December 22, 2020, Bassett released his son’s live version of “Heaven is You”. When listening to the song, which we’re sure many of you have, we can tell that he’s totally into someone. The lyrics go something like this: “Oh, I always heard there was a heaven / I never knew if it was true / But baby, ever since I met you / I know you are heaven.”
Tabloids and eagle-eyed fans think Joshua is talking about the singer, Sabrina Carpenter. They came to this arbitrary conclusion after Joshua and Sabrina shared a joint TikTok video in November of the same year. In the clip, the duo don the Sharkboy and Lavagirl costumes respectively.

And not just in this video, tabloids have also reported that the rumored couple also spent a lot of time together during the 2020 quarantine.
Olivia Rodrigo reportedly threw shade at Sabrina Carpenter?
By the way, Joshua’s other rumored lover Olivia reportedly cast shade on Sabrina through her music video ‘Drivers License’.
In music, her lyrics specifically evoke a blonde girl who is also older than her. The lyrics read: “And you’re probably with that blonde girl / Who used to make me doubt / She’s so much older than me / She’s everything I’m insecure about.”
But that said, there’s a pretty good chance that all the stuff is nothing but mere coincidence. And that’s understandable, since celebrity relationships often become the subject of constant gossip and magazine articles.
Besides, it is always up to a person whether he/she wants to put their love life on the public platform. We hope Joshua opens up if he’s in a relationship with a girlfriend now or in the future.
