Late last year, after Don't Be Tardy's Brielle Biermann was spotted with Chrisley Knows Best son Chase Chrisley, fans began to wonder if the two reality teens were more than just friends following Brielle's break-up from Slade Osborne. Well, it's been several months since that gossip hit the rumor mill — and now we're getting his side of the story.
"I mean, I wouldn't say friends. That's a stretch. She's an acquaintance," Chase told The Daily Dish. "[I've known her] since probably 9th grade. Everyone speculates and writes that she and I are dating — she and I 100 percent are not dating and have not ever dated. Clearing the air right now, that has never happened and will never happen."
As for having his private life in the public eye, the college student has learned to deal with it over the years. "I think people are gonna speculate. They can say what they want to say. I don't pay too much attention to that. I mean it happens, but it gets kind of annoying when people are running their mouth and talking and saying stuff they have absolutely no idea what they're talking about," he said. "People are gonna write stuff no matter what; it doesn't matter if it's true or not. I just try not read it and anybody that says that they don't read it, or read some of it, they're lying. If you see a thing with your name on it, you click. I know what's true about me."
