Football fans on social media are CONVINCED that Chelsea star Ruben Loftus-Cheek is dating TikToker Addison Rae.
Loftus-Cheek endured a miserable loan spell at Fulham last campaign, which threatened to end all prospects of him eventually making it at Chelsea.
The midfielder has bounced back remarkably, though, forcing himself into contention for a starting spot in Thomas Tuchel’s two-man midfield.
Loftus-Cheek’s improved fortunes on the field of play appear to match how he’s been getting on off of it, with the 25-year-old having been linked to internet royalty.
The rumours date back to May of this year, with a viral TikTok claiming that Loftus-Cheek and Rae had been spotted together out in London.

We have had no real clarity as to whether that’s true or not in the six months since the video was shared – until today.
For reasons unknown, Rae, who lives in LA, was in attendance as Chelsea hosted Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

There’s every possibility that Loftus-Cheek and Rae are keen on keeping their apparent romance under wraps – or perhaps it’s merely one big coincidence.
We take the view that there’s no smoke without fire, though…
