“Jaz and I were hanging out on set. We met and quickly became the best of friends, and the writers on the show saw that and they decided that they wanted to write for it because you can’t really fake chemistry,” the singer explained during an interview with GQ in June 202. “It was pretty magnetic. We couldn’t get enough of each other.”
The former Netflix stars first sparked romance rumors in December 2018 but kept things private in the beginning. Then, the Austin and Ally alum was asked about their relationship during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“Me and Jaz, and a few other of the actors [on Sabrina] really just hit it off, and we would spend every day together,” he gushed in January 2019. “So, Jaz is like, my closest friend right now. I’m the favorite’s favorite, that’s what we always say … because she’s everyone else’s favorite, but if I’m her favorite, then it’s like, ‘OK cool. I can deal with that.'”
Then, in April 2020, he defended their love in an Instagram post.
“Yo, guys, whoever is being hateful to Jasmine and I’s relationship (especially on a race basis wtf) can take a step back,” Ross wrote in April 2020. “We are both extremely happy. Thanks.”
Months later, the actress publicly shared her love for her boyfriend when celebrating his birthday.
“I never knew that love was a thing that chooses you until you wandered into my life,” Jaz wrote in an Instagram caption from December 2020. “You’re my best friend and favorite person. My smile is it’s brightest when you’re close, my laugh the loudest and my heart the fullest. I feel so loved, heard and seen by you and it’s a pleasure getting to have so much damn fun together every day. You are such a bright spark in this world and I love getting to learn from you and shine with you.”
Over the years, Ross has also been romantically linked to his former costars Laura Marano and Kiernan Shipka, but they were nothing more than friends. He also dated Courtney Eaton for a few years from 2015 to 2017. Wondering who else the actor has been spotted with in the past?
