Who is Dua Lipa dating, you ask? Well, we may have a few updates in that department, as Levitating singer has been seen out and about with a new man. Here's what we know...

Alas, despite their cute and unexpected encounter at Variety's Hitmakers brunch going viral in December 2022, the rumors swirling around Dua Lipa and Jack Harlow have fizzled out. Especially now that the Y2K fashion-loving singer is rumored to be in a new relationship, following her split from Gigi and Bella Hadid's brother, Anwar Hadid.

Lately, the Internet has been buzzing with new potential celebrity pairings, from those Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny rumors to speculation around Shawn Mendes's girlfriend and even a few wild claims linking Pete Davidson and Ice Spice. Now, it seems, Dua is the latest star to have her love life hit headlines. 

So, while we do already know Dua Lipa’s favorite perfume the question definitely still remains—just who is Dua Lipa dating?

Who is Dua Lipa dating?

According to The Sun (opens in new tab), Dua Lipa 27, is reportedly seeing filmmaker (and Rita Ora's ex-boyfriend) Romain Gavras, 41.

The pair were allegedly pictured leaving a Baftas after-party and getting into a car together, with a source telling the publication: "Dua and Romain have been quietly getting to know each other for several months.

“They have been enjoying spending time together. The pair met each other’s close circles over the festive period and have lots in common."

The source then went on to add that: "Dua knows how important it is to find someone who understands her industry. She feels Romain totally gets it. They’re both really creative people."

Of course, neither Dua nor Romain have commented on the romance speculation, so we could very well have another Jack Harlow situation on our hands but we'll keep you updated...

Did Dua Lipa and Jack Harlow date?

Dua Lipa and Jack Harlow sent fans swooning after the pair met at Variety's Hitmakers brunch and their encounter definitely proves that manifesting works...well, to some extent.

For those who don't know—Jack Harlow actually has a song named after Dua Lipa! The track featured on his latest album "Come Home The Kids Miss You" and includes lines like: "Dua Lipa, I'm tryna do more with her than do a feature." 

Jack previously revealed in an interview with  The Breakfast Club (opens in new tab) radio show, that he did actually reach out to Dua over FaceTime to get her blessing for the song, saying: "I FaceTimed her and played it for her because I didn’t want her to be blindsided by that or feel like creeped out or anything. If she had said, 'Yo, I hate it. I don’t want it to come out,' it wouldn’t have come out."

At the brunch, Dua and Jack could be seen chatting and laughing together, before Jack put his arm around her, to pose for a photo. And while we have no hints of a budding romance, the video of the pair meeting was all fans needed to fantasize about the pair together.

One fan commented on Variety's video saying: "I ship it." While several others quipped that they look very good together—and we can't help but agree...

For a while, it seemed like perhaps d Jack himself, manifested the match as a source allegedly told Page Six (opens in new tab) that the pair were in fact an item and are reportedly 'smitten.'

They claimed that they've been in 'constant communication' since their IRL meeting on December 3rd, with Jack 'strongly persuing' the romance. The source also added that he's, "going to do his best, as he has always been a fan of her.”

Alas though, neither Jack nor Dua have ever confirmed or even addressed the rumors, which likely means the reports were just that—rumors. Especially now that Dua is seemingly involved with someone new. Ah, well, this theory was fun while it latest!

Dua Lipa and Trevor Noah dating rumors

Despite these new Dua Lipa and Jack Harlow rumors, the pop star was also recently linked to a few other major names, including the Daily Show's Trevor Noah...

While the rumor mill went wild in October 2022, after Dua was pictured supposedly kissing and on a ‘date’ with Trevor Noah, sparking hopes of a budding romance—Dua quickly debunked the claims and revealed that she’s single.

Speaking on her iHeartRadio podcast, Dua Lipa: At Your Service, she told fellow singer Charlie XCX that she’s enjoying the single life.

She said: “For me, this is the first year I've not been in a relationship for a very long time, it's been really great to just be alone and only think about myself and kind of be quite selfish."

Before adding, that she’s ‘never really had the opportunity' to just be on her own and focus solely on herself. Yes, we love that for her! 

So, it seems Dua is definitely single and she and Trevor are either friends or not exclusive…

Does Dua Lipa have a boyfriend now?

As far as we can tell—not that the Jack Harlow rumors aren't fun and all—Dua Lipa is single and if she is in fact currently dating anyone, she's keeping it well under wraps.

Dua's most recent relationship was with Bella and Gigi's brother Anwar Hadid. The pair were together for two years, but they split last year in December.

Who has Dua Lipa previously dated?

Dua Lipa and Anwar Hadid split

Notably, Dua previously dated Gigi and Bella Hadid’s younger bro Anwar, who she dated for two years before they split up in December 2021.

The pair were rumored to have started dating in June 2019 and went Insta official in August. Throughout their relationship, Dua got really close to his sisters and mom, Yolanda—frequently posting pictures with them to her socials, along with cute PDA snaps of her and Anwar. 

The couple even became puppy parents in July 2021 and attended a number of red carpet events together.

Sadly though, they eventually broke up with a source telling the Sun, (opens in new tab) “The couple floated the idea about putting the brakes on their romance last month as traveling so much and being apart is proving tough. Their relationship is going through a crisis and appears to be on the rocks.”

The news was then confirmed by US Weekly (opens in new tab) after a source claimed they were 'no longer dating.'

Dua Lipa and Paul Klein

Before her relationship with Anwar, Dua also dated Lany frontman Paul Klein (who also notably dated Nicola Peltz before she married Brooklyn Beckham).

They dated for five months in 2017 and split in January 2018.

What went on between Dua Lipa and Christiano Ronaldo?

These two sparked some speculation back in 2018 after Dua performed at the Champions League final and shared a fleeting moment with football legend, Christiano Ronaldo. 

In a video shared of their interaction, Dua can be seen watching Ronaldo as he walks past her, seemingly enamoured (and who wouldn't be?). Sadly though, he didn't stop for a chat. 

However her very relatable reaction to crossing paths with him in the stadium tunnel did cause a bit of a stir online, but if you came here for some juicy news about a potential spark between them, we've got nothing—especially since Ronaldo was and is still in a long-term relationship with Georgina Rodriguez.
