Sigh, you guys. Deep, deep sigh. It’s hard to imagine that a few months ago, we hadn’t heard anything about Sam Palladio’s dating life. In fact, we’re ashamed to say that until Nashville aired, we didn’t even realize that we had a Gunnar Scott-shaped hole in our hearts. So, when we first heard him sing with Clare Bowen (Scarlett O’Connor) on the show, we were dying for them to be together.
Despite the obvious onscreen chemistry between the two foreigners-turned-southerners, it isn’t so. But that doesn’t mean we haven’t seen him share a kiss with his IRL girlfriend. Yep, that’s right guys. Sam and Chloe Bennet, who plays Gunnar’s ex Hailey (the chick who once told Avery (Jonathan Jackson) she wants to be in his business), are an item. (Do people still say item?)
Even though Gunnar left Hailey behind when his storyline broke up the weird “writer’s house” sitch, the two stars have been hanging out for a few months. Chloe posted this pic of them at Sam’s concert in Nashville on February 16 with the caption “Didn’t know this guy could sing.”
In real life, Chloe is also a singer and songwriter — in fact, she released her first single in English and Mandarin while living in Beijing! What a talented couple.
