On Sunday, Saltburn star Barry Keoghan walked the red carpet for the Golden Globes on his own. Missing in action was musical artist Sabrina Carpenter, whom he was rumored to taking as his date. Carpenter and Keoghan were first romantically linked just before Christmas when they were seen grabbing dinner in Los Angeles.

Keoghan split with ex-girlfriend Alyson Kierans in July last year; he and Kierans share one child, a boy named Brando. A source claimed The Sun before the awards show that the Eternals star gave Kierans a heads up about his planned relationship reveal.

“Barry thought it was best that Alyson was the first to know about him and Sabrina so she wouldn’t be hurt if she found out on social media,” the source alleged. “He is spending a lot of time in the States and has invited Sabrina to be his ‘plus one’ at the Golden Globes. Alyson and Barry still communicate for the sake of Brando, and he has been open about his new relationship.”

The 24-year-old singer was most recently rumored to be dating Shawn Mendes. They were seen together in February 2023 out on a walk, followed by date nights at Miley Cyrus’ album release party and the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. A source told ET at the time, “Shawn and Sabrina are seeing each other. They have been hanging out a lot and trying to keep things low-key.”

The source added, “They were at a birthday party together a couple weeks ago and were cute together. Shawn is happy.”

Keoghan was nominated in the Golden Globes Best Actor in a Drama category, which coincidentally includes two other Irish nominees, Cillian Murphy for Christopher Nolan’s biopic Oppenheimer and Andrew Scott for All of Us Strangers, which co-stars Paul Mescal. The other nominees are Bradley Cooper for Maestro, Leonardo DiCaprio for Killers of the Flower Moon, and Colman Domingo for Rustin.
