TikTok stars Nessa Barrett and Josh Richards are sparking some serious dating rumors after the ex-couple was spotted getting cozy at a party this past weekend.

Nessa Barrett is back in the news after her recent split from former boyfriend and fellow music artist Jaden Hossler.

The two went public with their relationship in 2021, prompting a slew of outrage online from fans of their ex-partners, Josh Richards and Mads Lewis, who they had purportedly been romantically involved with at the time.

Although the backlash died down in the following year, speculation ramped up again after Barrett and Hossler confirmed they had parted ways in May 2022.
