It looks like Chase Stokes has found an exception to the pogue on pogue macking rule.

The Outer Banks actor and Kelsea Ballerini were photographed sharing a kiss at the Los Angeles International Airport Jan. 28, with the pair looking as close as ever.

For their outing, the country singer opted for camo sweatpants, a white long-sleeve top and a beige beanie. As for the actor, he kept up with the camo theme and wore a tan jacket, black t-shirt, yellow sweatpants and a black baseball cap as the two headed through the airport holding hands.

Their PDA comes more than a week after Chase coyly addressed romance rumors between the two.

"She's a sweet girl," Chase, 30, told TMZ on Jan. 18. "We're having a good time and that's all I'll say."

And he's not the only one causing us to raise our eyebrows.
