Despite the rumors pounding the "Outlander" Season 3 stars, Sam Heughan proved that his relationship with real girlfriend, Mackenzie Mauzy, is going strong. The couple were together for his birthday celebration and shared their moment with Caitriona Balfe. The 37-year-old actress then posted a group photo to stop the rumors about their love triangle, which Mauzy later thanked Balfe for.
Sam Heughan turned 37 last April 30, and he recently held a get together where he celebrated his special day with some friends and loved ones. As "Outlander" Season 3 and Season 4 are still currently in the works, it should be no wonder if Caitriona Balfe were one of the heartthrob's guests. Mackenzie Mauzy was also present, and the three had a photo together, which Balfe later posted on Twitter.
By posing for a picture of them together, Sam was not short of making sure that Mauzy is not left off, even though many "Outlander" fans are rooting for Balfe as Heughan's girlfriend. The on-screen chemistry of Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe has been a hit which even drove some "Outlander" fans into a craze. The rumors were strong that some followers of the love team bullied Mackenzie Mauzy on social media.
Past reports revealed how the young model received death threats. As the talks were already becoming worse and possibly putting Sam and Mackenzie in danger, the Scottish actor then decided to address the speculations. He then expressed how he was disappointed to see the negative effects of some fans' obsession with him and Caitriona Balfe's supposed romance.
Balfe and Heughan already denied their alleged relationship countless times, but there are still those that spread speculations about the "Outlander" stars. An unfounded talk even claims that Mackenzie Mauzy is being used as a cover-up to hide the real connection of Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe.
People point out on how the two could possibly have a relationship when they are living countries apart. Also, they are rarely seen together, and that one occasion cannot prove that they are romantically linked. However, whether Sam Heughan and Mackenzie Mauzy are dating or not, the "Heart of Lightness" actor still vehemently denies that he is in love with his "Outlander" co-star.
