As for Lipa, she was previously in a long-term relationship with Gigi and Bella Hadid’s brother, Anwar. They separated in December 2021 after almost two years of dating. Since then, the “One Kiss” singer was rumored to have dated Jack Harlow and Trevor Noah. But in October 2022, she made it clear that she wasn’t seriously dating anyone and instead, she was enjoying being single.
“For me, this is the first year that I haven’t been in a relationship for a long time,” he said in his “Dua Lipa: At Your Service” podcast. “It’s been great to be alone and think only of myself and be a little selfish, something I’ve never had the chance to do. But when you find someone who really softens you up and calms you down… big difference!”
It seems that Lipa may have found that person in Gavras. Take a look at the gallery to see the red carpet debut of Lipa and Gavras.
