Brenna D’Amico is the rumored ex-girlfriend of Cameron Boyce. The two supposedly dated for a couple of years, from 2015 through 2017, according to popular celebrity dating database Who’s Dated Who. It is believed that D’Amico met Boyce in 2015 when they both worked on the same project, The Disney Channel movie Descendants. In the movie, D’Amico played the role of Jane and Boyce played the role of Carlos.
Interestingly, Boyce previously denied dating D’Amico during an interview with TOPPtube.
“I’m dating five people. I’m dating [Dove], I’m dating Sofia [Carson], I’m dating Sofia’s sister [Paulina], I’m dating Brenna [D’Amico], I’m dating Sophie [Reynolds], I’m dating everyone and I’m dating none of them,” he told the outlet. Nevertheless, his relationship with D’Amico has been wildly speculated for years.
On Saturday, it was reported that Boyce died at the age of 20 after having a seizure in his sleep. His family released a statement in which they confirmed Boyce’s death. He had been dealing with an on-going medical condition but further details about said medical condition were not released.
