Before stunning the red carpet of the 2018 CMAs by revealing that they were a couple, Lauren Bushnell and Chris Lane started seeing each other a couple of months ago. And after that, Lauren reached out to her friend, and Chris’ ex, Lauren “LB” Barr to let them know the two of them were dating. Bushnell told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY at the Shop and Sip Styling Event at DSW’s Winter Wonderland with JustFab and ShoeDazzle in Torrance, California on Dec. 7 that she and LB are, and will remain, friends. “I am friends with his ex Lauren,” she told us. “We all hung out together. I don’t know what their relationship status is, whether they’re officially exes, so I can’t actually comment on that, but she is one of my friends so I just wanted to make sure that we are all cool and that she’s fine with it.”
Bushnell went on to confirm that her call with LB went “fine.” “Her and I are good, we’re friends again,” she went on to tell us. “She’s the sweetest and her and I have known each other for a while as well so I just wanted to be respectful and do the right thing.” She added, “I feel like it’s girl code, you know.”
Lauren also went on talk about her favorite footwear for this Christmas season. “My favorite shoes trend this season definitely are booties,” she added. “I feel like I live in booties. I love the ones that I have on, they are like two-toned, a little tan and brown and cream. And I also love the really slouchy bootie, those are my two favorite styles.” We’ll keep you posted on all of the latest news about Lauren.
