About Bo Burnham’s relationship with Phoebe Bridgers

It was reported that Bo Burnham and Lorene Scafaria ended their relationship around the same time that Bo was rumoured to be dating Phoebe Bridgers. Interestingly, Phoebe was also reported to have broken up with her Irish actor boyfriend, Paul Mescal, around the same time.

Amid rumours about Burnham’s relationship with Phoebe, a photograph of her kissing English singer, Matty Healy, with Bo holding their shoulders, began circulating on the internet. The photo sparked confusion about who the openly bisexual actress is romantically involved with.

Also, a video shared by Australian-American singer and guitarist, Keith Urban in May 2023 captured Burnham and Phoebe cuddling in the background. This was a few months after their much-talked-about picture hit the internet. Although Keith later apologized for the accidental post on his social media page, the video left no doubt that the two are a couple.

He wrote:

“Phoebe, I’m so sorry, it felt very awkward. I felt bad. I was just digging on the concert! You never know what’s gonna happen”.

It has been reported that Burnham and Phoebe were seen together in public places even before Keith shared the video. Fans claimed that they saw the two cuddling at the Magic Castle Club, attending a comedy show at the Connelly Theatre in New York, and also at a restaurant in Malibu.

Despite going out in public, neither of them has confirmed nor denied the relationship rumours.
