The country pop singer, 29, posted a clip sitting in front of a screenshot from DeuxMoi featuring comments regarding her alleged romance with the 30-year-old actor.
‘I know, I know, I know. Stop reading, stop reading. Stop looking. But what is happening, guys. What? Let’s not do this,’ the star – who divorced husband Morgan Evans last year – said in the video.
Dating rumors: Kelsea Ballerini took to social media on Monday to comment on rumors that she’s dating Outer Banks star Chase Stokes; (L) Ballerini pictured 2022, (R) Stoked pictured 2021
Meanwhile the caption of her post read, ‘I’m about to break up with the internet 5 sure’ along with a laughing emoji.
It’s not clear what exactly Ballerini was referring to in the screenshot, which included a photo Stokes posted of the pair at a football game as well as direct messages from online trolls.
In one DM, someone claimed that the musician couldn’t be dating Stokes because she was ‘too busy consistently asking out the manager of soho house nash when she comes in all the time after last call.’

How it started: The rumors first began circulating after the duo were spotted at a football game together last week
In the video Kelsey was barefaced and sported a blue hoodie. She wore her blonde tresses in a ponytail.
The two first sparked dating rumors on January 9, after they were spotted at the College Football National Championship Game in Los Angeles.
Stokes shared a carousel of snaps, with one featuring him and Ballerini from the back as they cuddled up in the stands while enjoying the game.

Although the adorable photograph only showed them from behind, Stokes tagged the Miss Me More hitmaker’s Instagram account.
‘Lil recap,’ the rising star wrote in his caption.
‘Go vols,’ Ballerini replied to the post, referring to the University of Tennessee team.
Raising Canes CEO Todd Graves also posted a photo from the game which featured the two stars arm-in-arm in a group shot.

‘Appreciate the hospitality my man!’ Stokes commented on the post, while Kelsea left three white heart emojis.
The speculation comes after the two-time Grammy nominee revealed last month why she decided to end her four-year marriage to fellow country crooner Morgan Evans.
‘For a while, it was kind of like, “Okay, this is just a new phase of a relationship,” because relationships go through seasons, right? And it’s not always going to be butterflies and rainbows,’ the Tennessee native said on iHeart Radio podcast Doin’ Our Best.
‘For a long time, I was like, “Oh this is just… the glitter wears off. That’s what happens.” And then you get into a phase where you wait for it to come back. And then sometimes it doesn’t.’

‘At the end of the day, it is such a disservice and a dishonoring of yourself if you know something is not right and you stay,’ Ballerini explained to host Jade Iovine.
Kelsea and the Australian 37-year-old originally met in 2016 while co-hosting the CMC Awards in Australia.
On August 29, 2022, Ballerini announced that she and Evans were divorcing. The divorce was finalized that year.
Meanwhile Chase was last linked to his Outer Banks co-star Madelyn Cline, 25. The actors – who met while filming the first season of the show – ended their relationship in November of 2021, after one year together, but were later rumored to be seeing each other again.
