Teenage heartthrob and rapper MattyB has pretty much won everyone over with his voice and charm. Apparently, there's one special girl that's won him over, too! MattyBRaps attended homecoming and posted an Instagram picture with his date, Kate Cadogan. (Just a warning – it's pretty sweet.) But here's the real question: what's going on between them? In a new vlog, he pretty much gives us his answer, even if he hasn't officially said anything yet. Still, we have so many questions. Does this mean that he really has a girlfriend? Are they just friends? Is KattyB back in action? Let's break it down.
Does MattyB have a girlfriend?
Well! Matt posted a video to his vlog channel that finally answers our questions. In "KattyB – Are We Dating?" Kate and Matt explain that they met because Matt played baseball with her twin brother, Jack. He asked her mom if he could ask Kate out and they dated for a year! While the two of them argue about how they broke up, it's safe to say that KattyB took a break for a long time.
Matt says that they started hanging out again over the summer and grew closer. That's why he asked her to Homecoming! But is KattyB official? Well, it doesn't seem like Matt is ready to go public yet. The video ends on a major cliffhanger. From the way they act together and his constant slip-ups (calling it a relationship and saying they would have to break up again), KattyB is totally a thing.
MattyB may be keeping us guessing, but the evidence is mounting. For what it's worth, the pair lookde picture-perfect together at Homecoming. His blue suit goes perfectly with her baby blue dress. And the matching boutonnière and corsage are to die for! In the photo, the 14-year-old rapper simply captions it, "Homecoming with Kate."
"Homecoming with Kate?" Sorry, bro, we're going to need more answers than that. Just a little over a month ago, Matt posted a photo of how he asked her to homecoming. His homemade sign reads "Bring Back #(Kat)tyB & Come To Hoco '17 With Me?" Fans of MattyB already know that KattyB used to be a thing. With this homecoming ask, it seems like Matt is formally announcing the return of the ship! At the bottom of the sign is a photo of the two of them from when they were kids. It's clear that Matt and Kate have known each other for a while, since before MattyB was MattyB! That means their relationship has been years in the making.
If you dig through his Instagram, you'll find a few scattered photos of Matt and Kate. However, the captions are sparse and she's not tagged in his IG pics. It could be that Matty wants to keep their relationship somewhat private. To add even more confusion to the mix, in late December 2017, he posted a cute photo of himself ice skating "with my good friend Kate." Good friend? Or...girl friend?

What is the history of MattyB's relationship with Kate Cadogan?
Matt and Kate have known each other for a long time. She's from his hometown of Duluth, Georgia. Although it seems Kate isn't actively trying to become an actress, she has actually starred in two of MattyB's older music videos! She played the love interest in "Ms. Jackson" and "Hooked On You." Kate still posts links to MattyB's music videos on her Instagram, proving that she's the original BGirl. Those videos came out in 2013, just two years before the rumors that they were dating came out. Soon after Homecoming, MattyB's latest music video, "On My Own," came out. Of course, it's starring his latest love interest, Kate.
Outside of her friendship with MattyB, Kate is a cheerleader at her high school and has a twin brother named Jack. Hopefully, we'll learn more about her as #KattyB comes back in full force, just because the two of them are too cute not to obsess over.
Who else has MattyB dated?
There's been a lot of rumors surrounding MattyB's love life. He's been rumored to date several of his music video co-stars, including Jojo Siwa and YouTuber CeCe. There's also speculation surrounding Gracie Haschak. Gracie is one of the Haschak sisters, and they have their own music career. They all tour with MattyB and perform together, meaning they're with each other a lot. However, that doesn't mean they're dating.
Most recently on his YouTube channel "MattyBVlogs," Matt has been posting videos with Ivey Meeks. They're "dating," but it sounds kind of like they're pulling a Jake Paul and Erika Costell on us. According to the videos, their relationship has had some major ups and downs. They broke up around Valentine's Day, but are apparently trying to work things out. On October 13, 2017 Matt posted a video calling her his ex. In the same video, Ivey says they're working it out. What's the truth? Some fans love Matt and Ivey together, but can we even trust YouTube relationships anymore?
Still, the one girl who's consistently stayed in MattyB's life is Kate. They're definitely close! Even if they're just friends, it sounds like they're always there for each other.
Has MattyB ever admitted to having a crush on someone?
In 2014, Matty uploaded a Q&A where he tells the world who he has a crush on. Who's the lucky lady? Ariana Grande.
"It is the Ariana Grande," he says in the video before winking at the camera. I mean, who doesn't have a crush on Ari? It's been three years and there's no evidence on the internet that MattyB ever met his crush IRL. (For the record, she's currently dating Mac Miller.) Safe to say, he's been a little busy with his flourishing music career. Plus, it seems like he might have a new love interest.
No matter the status of their relationship, MattyB and Kate looked like they had an amazing time at homecoming. We're down for whatever makes the two of them happy and keeps them posting adorable pictures together.
