Because of the assumptions made about the song’s subject, Joshua was savaged on social media by the Grammy Award-winning singer’s devoted fanbase.

The performer previously revealed to PEOPLE that the situation as a whole took its toll on his health and that he found himself in the hospital grappling heart failure after he received criticism – and even death threats online – as a result of the song’s release.

The pair reportedly dated while shooting the first two seasons of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, which premiered on Disney+ in 2019.

But it was rumored that, like their onscreen characters, the pair’s romance began to crumble during production on season two which eventually led to their split.

Olivia and Joshua have never publicly confirmed or denied anything relating to their relationship or subsequent breakup.

The pop songstress is now reportedly romantically linked to record producer Zack Bia, with an insider telling PEOPLE in June that she ‘really likes’ him and that they’ve been dating since February.
