Meghann Fahy and Leo Woodall
The White Lotus season 2 may have come to a dramatic conclusion, but fans will be excited to hear that Meghann Fahy (who plays Daphne) and Leo Woodall (who plays Jack) are rumoured to be romantically involved, according to ET Canada.
While there hasn’t been an official confirmation, Bustle notes that the two have reportedly shown some public affection in their Instagram comments, with Woodall sharing a carousel of photos of himself and his co-stars, captioned, “That’s amore.” Fahy replied in the comments with, “I love you! I love these! I love you!”
Fahy also recently posted a picture from her shoot with Elle UK, alongside the comment, “And thank you @elleuk I love the UK and I love all of the Elles!!!,” to which Woodall replied, “UK loves you back.”
Jack Harlow + Dua Lipa
Is it possible to manifest love by putting it in a song? It might be worth asking Jack Harlow. The oft-dreamt-about rapper released a song that’s essentially about wanting to date singer Dua Lipa earlier this year (the song is aptly titled “Dua Lipa”) — and now sources are saying that he may actually be dating the pop artist.
While neither Harlow nor Lipa have commented on their current romantic status (Lipa was rumoured to have been dating Trevor Noah earlier in the fall), the pair recently met in person for the first time in public at Variety‘s Hitmakers brunch. Since then, a source told PEOPLE that the musical duo has been “hanging out.” Similarly, an inside source reportedly told US Weekly that the pair has been “talking” and that “they like each other and are both excited to see where things go next.”
While the brunch is reported to be the first time the two met, it’s not the first time they spoke. In May, PEOPLE reports, Harlow told The Breakfast Club that he had FaceTimed Lipa to ask her permission before releasing his song about her.

Simu Liu + Allison Hsu
It’s (Instagram) official: Shang-Chi star Simu Liu is in a relationship.
While some have been speculating about Liu’s relationship with digital marketing manager Allison Hsu since they attended the Violent Night premiere together last week (wearing colourful holiday sweaters), Liu made it Insta-official over the weekend by sharing a pic of the pair on his account, jokingly captioned “pictured: two asians in front of santa’s crotch.”
Famous friends commented on the photo positively, according to Page Six. Olivia Munn wrote “Cuuuuuute,” followed by multiple red and green heart emojis, for example.
Beyond the apparent social media launch of his relationship, Liu also had some exciting career news recently — as Global News reported, it was announced last week that the actor will return to host the Juno Awards again in 2023.
Emily Ratajkowski + Pete Davidson
“Pete and Emily have been talking for a couple months now,” an insider told Us Weekly, though the source also noted that Davidson and Ratajkowski are “in the very early stages, but both really like each other.”
While Davidson and Ratajkowski have yet to speak on the topic, the report seems to align with rumblings about the pair that arose via the Instagram account Deux Moi over the weekend. According to ET Canada, Deux Moi shared messages on an Instagram Story that claimed that the comedian/actor and model/writer/podcaster (she recently launched her podcast, High Low with EmRata) were spotted holding hands in Brooklyn.
“His hands were allll over her and they’re clearly clearly hooking up,” the message claimed.
Though the two have not confirmed any new relationships, they are both recently single. Ratajkowski and her husband, Sebastian Bear-McClard, broke up in the summer, while Davidson and now-ex girlfriend Kim Kardashian also broke up earlier this year.
One thing that is confirmed? EmRata is enjoying the single life. Of her single status, Ratajkowski told Variety last month: “I’m newly single for basically the first time in my life ever, and I just feel like I’m kind of enjoying the freedom of not being super worried about how I’m being perceived.”
Larsa Pippen + Marcus Jordan
The Real Housewives of Miami star Larsa Pippen is reportedly dating Michael Jordan’s 31-year-old son, Marcus Jordan, according to TMZ. Over the weekend, they were spotted having a romantic beach day. While Larsa, who used to be married to former Chicago Bulls player Scottie Pippen, previously insisted that they were “just friends,” the pair looked pretty cuddled up as Marcus walked with his arm around Pippen. Plus, they were even spotted kissing.
Ashley Darby + Luke Gulbranson
While it hasn’t officially been confirmed, there are rumours circulating about a Bravo-lationship between The Real Housewives of Potomac star Ashley Darby and Luke Gulbranson from Winter House and Summer House. At BravoCon 2022, Darby revealed that they had been flirting, calling Gulbranson “really cute” and saying that they’ve “exchanged numbers.” Since then, they’ve reportedly been texting and FaceTiming, and Gulbranson even asked Darby what to wear on Watch What Happens Live, where he revealed that they had made “actual plans” to see each other. Could this be a match made at BravoCon?
Billie Eilish + Jesse Rutherford
Grammy winner Billie Eilish, 20, was spotted smooching fellow musician, the frontman of The Neighbourhood, Jesse Rutherford, 31. Page Six captured the two smiling, kissing and holding hands as they appeared to be enjoying a date together. While neither star has officially confirmed the relationship, neither has been linked to anyone else recently, as Eilish is no longer with Matthew Vorce and Rutherford split from Devon Lee Carlson.

Leonardo DiCaprio + Gigi Hadid
Ok, so they may not be a couple yet, but the pair have certainly piqued our interest. DiCaprio and Hadid have been spotted hanging out at NYFW, sources are now saying DiCaprio, 47, and Hadid, 27, are “getting to know each other,” and the actor’s recent breakup with model Camila Morrone has the rest of us wondering if something might be brewing between these two, now. Morrone and DiCaprio ended their four-year relationship a few weeks ago, prompting criticism that the Don’t Look Up actor, won’t date anyone over 25. But Hadid might just prove that theory wrong.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke + Jennifer Spinner
Former The Real Housewives of Orange County star Braunwyn Windham-Burke – who came out as a lesbian in a 2020 GLAAD interview – has gone Instagram official with her new girlfriend, Jennifer Spinner. The RHOC star posted an Instagram video of the pair on vacation in Dorado, Puerto Rico, according to Page Six. Windham-Burke also shared a photo of herself holding Spinner’s hand alongside the caption, “Here’s to new chapters and a lot more cheesy posts.”
Windham-Burke and Spinner actually met on Instagram, the reality star revealed in an interview with Us Weekly. They connected online because Spinner’s brother “is in the same friend group that my ex-girlfriend [Victoria Brito] used to be friends with,” she explained.
Yung Gravy + Addison Rae’s mom, Sheri Nicole Easterling
The rapper, 26, and mum to social media star, Addison Rae, 42, made their red carpet debut at the 2022 VMA Awards. The pair matched in lilac, and showed plenty of affection for each other. The couple met online, shared Yung Gravy during a pre-show interview, as reported by PEOPLE. “We connected right away. I’m from the furthest north it gets, she’s from the furthest south it gets.” He also added, “I’m into MILFs and she’s kind of the queen of MILFs, so I figured it was just a perfect match.” Easterling is also mom to sons Enzo, 14, and Lucas, 8.
Sutton Stracke + Sanjit Das
While most of her time on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season has been spent feuding with Erika Jayne and newcomer Diana Jenkins, one good thing has come out of the show for reality star Sutton Stracke. According to Page Six, Stracke has made her romance with Sanjit Das – who has already made appearances on RHOBH – Instagram official. Early on in season 12 of RHOBH, Das made a cringe-worthy appearance when Stracke FaceTimed him with several of her co-stars, including Crystal Kung Minkoff and Erika Jayne. It looks like the awkward scene ended up working in Stracke’s favour after all, as she posted a selfie with the former Jeopardy! contestant, debuting their romance online.

Neither of them has commented on the relationship yet, however, a source spilled to PEOPLE that it’s likely because the two “are both very private people, and with the pandemic it was easy to keep [the relationship] quiet.”

Schafer was previously linked to Massima Desire in 2020 and Fike dated Diana Silvers in 2021.

The two have been on the show together since 2017 and they are not only “very close,” but also “best friends.” He credits the positive life changes he’s made to his newfound success in love. Radke passed on filming the February 2021 season so he can focus on his sobriety and this shift towards fresh perspectives and healthier choices has led him here.
Kanye West + Julia Fox
The Grammy-winning rapper may have recently bought a directly house across from his ex, Kim Kardashian, but proximity to her hasn’t stopped the “Donda” singer from exploring other romantic connections. West was spotted out with Uncut Gems actress Julia Fox on Jan. 4 when the two attended the Tony Award-nominated Slave Play in New York before having dinner together. It’s not entirely clear if these two are an item or just friends, as West isn’t officially divorced from Kardashian yet, and Fox is married to Peter Artemiev, a pilot. It could just be that they both have a love for the theatre, but in any case, we’ll be keeping an eye on them to see if things start to heat up.
