There were previously rumors that Hardy was dating a fellow contestant on Idol when he was in the competition – Laci Kaye Boothe. Even Idol judge Katy Perry thought the two had chemistry. But, Hardy was dating Becnel and Boothe had a boyfriend, so there was no romance. When it came to dating rumors about the two, Boothe told Hollywood Life, “Everybody thinks it. But we’re still five years apart and we still have significant others.”

Hardy also spoke with Hollywood Life during the same interview and said, “The reason people probably think [we’re dating] is because we’re always, like, together! And we’re working on stuff. So I can see people thinking that.” Boothe went on to say that the rumors did make her boyfriend uncomfortable but that he was friendly with Hardy and they had a good relationship.
