Parrilla posted a selfie on Instagram with the caption “Today” on July 31.
Adams then slid down into the comment section and added two heart and fire emojis. Parrilla then responded with emojis of a kiss, Dracula, and a red heart.
The flirtatious comments didn’t stop there, as Adams responded with two red heart emojis.
Between the two emojis, he had written something in Chinese or Mandarin that couldn’t be translated into English.
These flirtatious comments prompted fans to speculate whether they were dating [The comments have since been removed].
People began discussing the same topic on Reddit, with one even writing, “I don’t know, but that’s some flirty flirtiness.”
“Everyone’s talking about it on Twitter, and she just told people on her Instagram that she can choose who she relates to… “I really hope they’re not in a relationship and that this is all rumor,” one Redditor commented, which was followed by others.
“I think they have something,” some people said later.
She also attended the LA show,” and “Interesting! I don’t think she would have posted [her statements] if nothing was going on.”
It is currently unknown whether or not Parrilla and Adams are dating.
As the romance rumors persisted, people began to criticize Parrilla for allegedly dating Adams, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by several women.
The New York Times reported on February 13, 2019, that seven women, including Adams’ ex-wife Mandy Moore, Phoebe Bridgers, and some underage fans, had accused him of sexual misconduct.
One of the women claimed Adams sent her sexually explicit text messages while she was still underage.
Adams faced backlash after these allegations surfaced as part of the Me Too movement. When he stood up to respond to the allegations, he denied them.
Nonetheless, he apologized via his Twitter account. “I am not a perfect man, and I have made many mistakes,” he wrote. I deeply and unreservedly apologize to anyone I have ever hurt, however unintentionally.”
The FBI was said to be looking into the matter at the time.
Later, in the Autumn of 2019, the FBI informed Adams’ lawyers that the investigation had been terminated because no evidence of Adams’ illegal behavior with underage girls had been discovered.
Regardless, the backlash against Adams persisted, and his tours were canceled, with full refunds given to ticket holders.
Later, in July 2020, the singer apologized for his actions in a lengthy letter published exclusively by the Daily Mail.
