Jack Barakat dated Abigail Breslin when she was a minor
According to reports, Barakat is not dating anyone currently, or at least no one publicly. However, he does have dated a number of well-known personalities in the past. Among those women, was actress and singer Abigail Breslin.
Back in 2013, US Weekly had reported that Barakat and Abigail were romantically linked. The All Time Low band member was 25 years old while the singer was 17 at that time. Back then, he had joined her at the premiere party for her new movie, 'Ender's Game,' in Los Angeles. He had also visited the actress on the set of her then-upcoming movie, 'Maggie.' Apparently, The 'Little Miss Sunshine' star, as well as the guitarist, decided against flaunting their relationship in public at the time because of their age difference and the fact that Breslin was legally a minor at the time. She was due to turn 18 years old the following year.
Barakat has also dated Playboy model and TV personality Holly Madison for less than a year after meeting her in 2010. He also reportedly dated fellow singer Taylor Jardine in 2014. Details of those relationships are not available.
