"Outlander" Season 3 gets more interesting and controversial as reel couple Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe are engulfed once again with news about their alleged split. According to reports, the suspected reel-to-real couple started having relationship woes when Heughan appeared in an Oscar Weekend Kick-off party with another celebrity, MacKenzie Mauzy.

According to Just Jared, the "Outlander" Season 3 actor stepped out in public with Mauzy and shocked the fans who actually thought that he and Balfe had something special. Their respective roles in "Outlander" series had intense, intimate scenes and the two celebrities seemed to carry out the scenes so well that the fans were ready to believe all those Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe dating news.

However, the incident where Heughan took Mauzy as his date in the Oscar Weekend Kick-off party shattered the hope of the fans who wanted the former and Balfe to be a real couple. Admittedly, being a reel couple who has to film a lot of intimate scenes make it very tempting for the fans to believe that they have a real romantic relationship outside the set. Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe dating news also flourished for several months because the "Outlander" Season 3 couple also decided to keep mum about the real status of their relationship.

According to Korea Portal, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe dating news may have gotten a bit out of hand and had even gone to the extent that the "Outlander" Season 3 actress is reportedly pregnant. On that note, the alleged relationship of the "Outlander" stars have reportedly been destroyed by Mauzy, who is allegedly a long time friend of Heughan.

Given that premise, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe dating relationship can be considered as very tumultuous. However, these reports must be taken with a grain of salt as reps for Heughan and Balfe have yet to comment on the controversial issues.
