Kelsea Ballerini is threatening to break up with the Internet.

It seems like the country singer is ready to move on after folks had lots of thoughts when Outer Banks star Chase Stokes shared a glimpse of his life on Instagram. The actor posted a carousel of photos, but fans zeroed in on the third picture of him cozying up with Kelsea. The snap appeared to be of them watching a football game at the Georgia University. What's more, he tagged her.

Chase captioned the January 13 post, "lil recap," while Kelsea commented with a coy, "go vols 🙈." Another series of Instagram photos from the same day revealed more of the duo together.

It certainly sent a shockwave through Kelsea Ballerini fans, even sparking an outpouring of rumors regarding the country music star's dating history. A few days later, on January 17, she posted a TikTok that seemed to address the elephant in the room — her relationship status. The caption read, "I'm about to break up with the Internet 5 sure 😂."

Kelsea spoke over a screenshot of Deux Moi's Instagram story, a celebrity gossip page, that speculated over the authenticity of Kelsea and Chase's rumored relationship. Some of the theories even claimed that she'd been seeing other people. The Subject to Change star sounded off in the video, repeating "I know" over and over.

She added: "Stop reading. Stop looking. But, what, is happening, guys?"

The Heartfirst singer emphasized her frustration by shaking her head and pleading with people to stop spinning the narrative out of control: "Let's not do this, you know?" She groaned and blew a raspberry at the end of the clip.

While caught off guard by the pair's seemingly hard launch, fans stood up for the singer in the comments. "You do you, boo!!! Ignore the haters!" one person wrote. "What matters is that your fans will always have your back no matter what," another added. "I hate rumors like this, but please don't leave the Internet ..." a different user said.

All the hoopla follows Kelsea's split from her husband Morgan Evans after nearly five years of marriage. In August 2022, she took to Instagram to personally share the news with followers, announcing that she was going through a divorce.

The 28-year-old wrote in the caption: "This deeply difficult decision is the result of a journey of love, growth, and effort that ultimately has come to an end. It's hard to find the words here ... but I feel extremely grateful for the years of marriage to Morgan and hopeful for the next seasons."

Whether or not it's true, fingers crossed that Kelsea finds love soon enough!
