Fans began to speculate about a possible romance when the two stars began liking each other’s posts over the past couple months. 

Patridge was previously married to Corey Bohan after the two began dating in 2008, and he popped the big question in 2015. 

Their daughter, Kirra, was welcomed to the world in June 2016 – with the pair saying ‘I do’ five months later. 

The following year, Audrina filed for divorce and received both a temporary restraining order and child abduction prevention order against Bohan. 

Back in 2022, the TV personality got candid about the ‘toxic relationship’ with her ex on the Call Her Daddy podcast. 

She accused the dirt bike rider of domestic abuse and also claimed that he would call her ‘pathetic,’ ‘a fake c**t,’ and a ‘failure.’ 

Audrina also alleged that Corey had cheated on her during their relationship, but tried to keep their toxic relationship out of the public eye. ‘I had to keep it together. I had to get up the next day and go film and pretend like everything’s fine.’

‘I kind of started to learn how to block it out and show up with a smile, do what I needed to do and cry after. You turn it on when you need to for cameras.’

‘I tried to hide it from a lot of people because it’s embarrassing, it’s humiliating,’ she expressed, but revealed the situation only became ‘worse.’

The end of the relationship and marriage came following an incident when Bohan had allegedly pushed her while she was holding their daughter – who was still an infant at the time. 

‘Things kept escalating. When I was pushed back, Kirra started screaming and crying and I started screaming and crying and he realized what happened.’

‘He started crying, everything just spiraled and it got worse. That’s when my family got involved and the police got involved,’ Audrina recalled. ‘I knew at that moment, that’s the end of it. I knew after what happened, he wasn’t gonna change.’

She later added, ‘It takes a long time to recover from that and to feel like you’re you again and that you’re lovable. But someone will love you again, don’t believe that you’re never good enough to be loved because you are.’ 

During the podcast episode, Patridge also stated she was ‘open to dating’ but added, ‘I’m not dating for me, it’s for my daughter too. Whoever I date next, it has to be the real deal.’ 

Michael Ray was also married in the past to fellow country singer, Carly Pearce. The two tied the knot in October 2019, but after only eight months of marriage, she filed for divorce in June 2020. 

Last year in July, he reflected on the split and what led to the divorce after less than a year of marriage on the Bobbycast podcast. 

In regards to their relationship before tying the knot, Michael said, ‘I probably would have slowed things down. I wouldn’t have been so influenced by people, you know, fans being involved in it.’ 

‘To be honest, I think I knew in the beginning, or around that time, that this was something we probably should have slowed down…’

He later explained that both he and Carly had ‘dropped the ball in a lot of ways,’ even before their nuptials. ‘I didn’t show up after our wedding day, because by that point in time, there was a lot of stuff that she didn’t show up for.’

‘And it was just kind of like – there was stuff that happened that day where I was like, “I’m done. I’m out.”‘

However, of the divorce, Ray said all went calmly. ‘We didn’t own anything together. We both signed pre-nups. I haven’t seen or spoken to her in three-and-a-half years.’ 

‘I went my way, she went hers. Divorce papers [were] sent to my manager’s office. I signed ’em. Got sent to her…manager’s office, she signed ’em. That’s it.’
