“Y’all gotta try this store. Very nice affordable things and great people working there,” she captioned a selfie with Mackenzie in February. One week earlier, the Tennessee native was spotted at Josh’s birthday celebration.

“I have known Mackenzie for 10 years or so, then earlier this year we got reconnected,” Josh told The Sun in July. “Mackenzie and I are friends and enjoy each other’s company. Neither of us are worried about ‘titles.’ We both just came out of a marriage.”
