Ashley Wagner Boyfriend? Are Wagner and Adam Rippon Dating?

February 19, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Ashley Wagner is one of three American figure skaters competing in the women’s figure skating competition at the 2014 Olympics.

As Wagner has made it to the top, people are wondering about her love life–does she have a boyfriend?

Wagner has been mostly mum about the issue, but she did divulge to the Washington Post that Adam Rippon, also an Olympic skater, is very close to her.

She referred to Rippon as a kind of brother, cheerleader, and confidante, and “boyfriend without having to be my boyfriend.”

Rippon, 24, and Wagner, 22, share the same coach, Rafael Arutyunyan, after Wagner’s relatively recent coaching change.

That means they train together, in California, and hang out a lot.
