On Wednesday, June 18, Us Weekly reported that Norman and Emily were seeing each other. An alleged "source close to the duo" told the site, "They had a connection early on in the show, but the romance developed recently. They're still pretty guarded about it."
The site claimed that after Emily's character Beth was killed off in 2014, Norman and Emily "stayed in touch through texts, appearances at fan conventions (the two are scheduled to appear at the Walker Stalker Con event in Orlando, Fla., on June 27 and 28), and at Kinney's music gigs." The source said, "[Norman] was one of the first to support [Emily] at her concerts when she was still on the show. She always called him the sweetest guy on the set."
According to the site, Norman supported Emily at her concert in Decatur, Georgia on May 21. An eyewitness told the site, "For some time everyone wanted two of the most beloved Walking Dead characters to be together, but of course, Beth was killed off."
