Clare Crawley and Jeff Dye spark dating rumors months after her split with Dale Moss
Former “Bachelorette” Clare Crawley has been reportedly spotted with a rumored boyfriend, with whom she is apparently keeping it casual. Crawley is rumored to be dating Jeff Dye, Kristin Cavallari’s former fling, just a couple of months after breaking off her engagement with Dale Moss.
“She was set up with Jeff since they have mutual friends,” a source told Us Weekly. “Clare agreed to go on the date because she thought he was handsome.” The source revealed that early in November, Dye and Crawley went on a date to a Los Angeles Lakers game. There, they “met for coffee” while he was doing standup shows in San Diego. Downplaying the rumors, however, the source said, “They live in two different cities, so it’s nothing serious.” “They’re just friends,” a second source said.

Jeffrey Dye, born on February 4, 1983, is an American stand-up comedian and actor. Dye has hosted MTV series 'Numbnuts' and 'Money From Strangers', and also appeared on Girl Code. The Seattle-born comedian was a finalist on the sixth season of the NBC series 'Last Comic Standing' and finished third behind Marcus and winner Iliza Shlesinger. Crawley, 40, and Dye, 38, follow each other on social media. Dye posted photos of himself and Crawley earlier this month, hanging out at an Alo event.
Earlier this year, Dye reportedly split with Kristin Cavallari. He and the TV star were last photographed in Los Angeles together in February, together. In December 2020, they were seen getting cozy during a getaway with friends in Cabo San Lucas after Cavallari and he were caught kissing at a bar in Nashville in November 2020. He was briefly linked to Cavallari in 2020 following her split from Jay Cutler. The Uncommon James designer, 34, and the “Jeff Dye’s Friendship Podcast” host split in March 2021 after five months.
However, regarding the current rumors linking the duo, the comedian spoke to US Weekly and clarified his stance saying that though they maybe spending time together it does not mean there is a romance brewing them. The 'Girl Code' alum was quoted as saying “Since my breakup, I basically just do comedy, write, yoga and watch late-night short films about romance. I met Clare and she’s awesome but if sitting by someone at a Lakers game means I’m dating someone, I guess me and my friend Richard have been in a relationship for years.” He further added that there were three other women at the game that day with him and it “was hardly a date”.
Crawley's tumultuous relationship with Moss
Crawley was previously in a relationship with reality television personality Dale Moss. The former duo had met on Season 16 of 'The Bachelorette', and got engaged shortly after. Moss, 33, proposed to the hairstylist two weeks into filming the series, but the duo briefly split in January. After the pair finally split in September, Crawley opened up about the difficult break-up back in October. “The one that gets me is, how do you say goodbye to somebody you never wanted to walk away from?” she said on Jana Kramer’s podcast, “Whine Down.” “Like I would have never walked … You’re having to say goodbye to somebody you don’t want to be saying goodbye to, you have to walk away from somebody you don’t want to walk away from.”
Crawley posted a video on her Instagram feed a month later. The video, from the same Alo event Dye posted photos of on his Instagram, featured Crawley and Dye having a good time.
