His Personal Life Details

The Shameless actor is reportedly dating a fellow actress Brielle Barbusca. Although their dating timeline isn’t vividly clear, they seem to be dating since late 2016 or early 2017.

The very first time both of them were seen together was on February 14, 2017, when Barbusca shared a selfie with Cutkosky with the caption, “My Valentine. Xoxo.” On July 2, the actor once again appeared on his partner’s Instagram.

Next year, on March 24, Barbusca shared another picture with her boyfriend with a caption that read “thanks for being the best hiking buddy (and holding my backpack when I got lazy).” However, following that day, Cutkosky hasn’t made any appearance on Barbusca’s social media feed.

As for Cutkosky, his Instagram posts start only from December 13, 2018, and Barbusca hasn’t appeared in any of the pictures the actor has shared. As a result, many have started to think that the couple broke up.

However, some news outlets such as Cheatsheet and E! Online reported in 2020 that they are still together. But it is not known if they are married, turned husband and wife, or just in a relationship. Besides, none of them have appeared with another person who can be regarded as their new partner.

Thus, without any official confirmation, nothing can be said if Cutkosky and Barbusca are still together or they have parted their ways.
