Wait… Are Jxdn & Stassie Dating?

2022 seems to be the year of unexpected celeb relationships. From Jack Harlow and Dua Lipa to Pete Davidson and EmRata (to just name a few), the celeb dating pool has become an interconnected web of odd couples that truly no one saw coming. As the year of surprising relationships nears the end, the 2022 interconnected web had one more duo to leave us with — Stassie Baby ( Anastasia Karanikolaou) and Jaden Hossler are rumored to be dating. Weird, I know. Her Campus reached out to both Karanikolaou’s and Hossler’s teams for comment, but they did not respond by the time of publication.

To jog your memory, Jaden Hossler, aka Jxdn, first got famous on TikTok as he was a part of the Sway Boys. He started branching out from TikTok to explore his musical talent, which has landed him gigs with Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker. Jxdn then got himself into a public debacle when he started dating Nessa Barrett not too long after his breakup with Mads Lewis and Barrett’s breakup with Josh Richards. He and Barrett ultimately ended things in May

Now, Jxdn is back in the dating world, but it seems like his time with the Barkers paid off because he has been spotted getting relatively close to Stassie. If you’re not an avid Kardashian-Jenner fan, then you might not know who Stassie is. Let me help you out: Stassie had a quick rise to fame as an influencer and “it” girl, but she’s most known for being Kylie Jenner’s bestie. The two have been best friends since they were 13 years old and are the definition of friendship goals. I mean, they even have matching tattoos for Kylie’s daughter, Stormi.

Stassie has been around for the entirety of the Kardashian-Jenner relationships from the Pete Davidson era to the Tristan Thompson drama. The Kardashian-Jenner multiverse seems to be constantly expanding. Will Jxdn be the next addition? 

Jxdn and Stassie were spotted at a Billie Eilish concert together as well as other public outings. 

Over the past few weeks, Stassie and Jxdn have been spending quite a lot of time together. Fans were quick to spot them at a Billie Eilish concert together on Dec. 16. Though they were accompanied by their friend Carter, speculations started to rise about the pair being a potential match. Fans even went on to say the two were giving off “I like you, you like me” vibes at the concert. 

However, rumors were already brewing when Stassie and Jxdn were photographed spending time together on multiple occasions, including a Halloween party. The paparazzi photos of the two leaving a recent party alone were enough for fans to assume they were an official couple, which has yet to be confirmed by the pair. 

Jxdn and Stassie have been making TikToks together, causing further speculations. 

The day after the concert, Stassie and Jxdn were giving the fans what they want when they were posting multiple TikToks together. Fans were quick to notice how comfortable and close they were with one another, which just added fuel to the fire. These TikToks sparked a whole wave of fan edits of the potential new relationship. 

Though the relationship has yet to be confirmed nor denied, if there’s one thing about the Kardashian-Jenner multiverse, is to expect the unexpected.
