No more drama? Josh Richards and Nessa Barrett have sparked reconciliation rumors following their 2021 split and the drama that followed. Keep reading for everything we know so far. 

Are Josh Richards and Nessa Barrett Back Together?

Neither has confirmed their current relationship status. In March 2021, Josh announced their split and Nessa swiftly moved on with her ex’s former BFF, Jaden Hossler. However, in May 2022, Nessa and Josh were spotted on a walk in L.A. together after the songstress and Jaden confirmed their breakup.

“It was talking about where everything went wrong, to get closure,” Josh admitted about their walk during a May 2022 episode of Barstool Sports’ “BFFs” podcast. When asked if they were going to get back together, Josh added, “I don’t think I’ve thought of that, even, so. … I don’t think we’re going to get back together.”

Elsewhere on the podcast, he added, “I don’t know if we’re friends yet. I think it was just more of a good talk to get some closure and put s–t in the past.”

In June 2022, fans thought Griffin Johnson revealed that Nessa and Josh were back together during an episode of Tea Talk. However, he backpedaled, saying, “No, I said when they were together.” Josh, for his part, added, “I feel like we’re digging ourselves such a deep hole right now.” The fact of the matter is, it’s unclear where they really stand.
