Nevertheless, their relationship fell apart when his interest shifted to Chloe.
Ricky and Chloe, who were later nicknamed Clicky by fans, met in 2015 at the Radio Disney Music Awards and exchanged contacts but according to them, their relationship only became official after their second meeting at Digifest. Afterwards, they started attending award shows and couple premieres. They also made their relationship official on social media confirming the speculation and flooded their accounts with photos of them much to the delight of their many fans.
Additionally, the pair supported each other by making appearances in their respective music and YouTube videos; Ricky’s ‘Wrapped Up for Christmas’ music video features Chloe while the singer also made an appearance on one of Chloe’s YouTube videos. Unfortunately, it wasn’t long before the adorable pair called it quits on their relationship, citing the encroachment of their busy schedules. Fans didn’t like it and dragged Ricky to the streets of social media for it, especially after he was spotted with model Beatrice Vendramin.
