People absolutely loved Devi and Paxton’s short-lived romance in the third season of Never Have I Ever, that they started shipping the actors behind the characters together. However, it’s important we mention that Maitreyi Ramakrishnan and Darren Barnet are not dating in real life. They’re just good friends and co-stars. But who is Darren Barnet dating in 2023? Is he still in a relationship with fellow actress Mikaela Hoover? We shared what we know about Darren Barnet’s current relationship status below.
Darren has had his fair share of public relationships. From 2014 to 2017, he dated an E! producer named Cassie Maynard. They made their Instagram debut in November 2014, with Darren sharing a cute photo of them on an ice skating date. Later, in December 2015, Darren posted a collage of photos on his Instagram to commemorate his and Maynard’s one-year anniversary. But sometime in 2017, it appears they broke up because they stopped posting about each other.
In April 2018, Darren was believed to have started dating Southpaw actress Ali Rose. Their relationship was later confirmed in October 2018 when Rose shared a cute photo of them together on her Instagram on National Boyfriend Day. However, it appears that they went their separate ways sometime in early 2019.
Darren’s next public relationship was with his Love Hard co-star Mikaela Hoover. Read on to find out when they started dating and if they’re still together in 2023.
