Take a look at Lipa’s rollercoaster ride of romance with rappers, comedians, models and every other heartthrob.

Dua Lipa’s first public relationship was with British model and chef Isaac Carew. The couple met in 2015 and began dating. The pair had an on-and-off-again relationship as they dated until 2017 then split up only to get back together again in 2018.  

The May of 2018 witnessed the duo exiting Soho House in London, with Carew’s arm playfully draped around Lipa’s shoulder, a snapshot of their shared moments. The couple also adorned red carpets together, gracing the Grammys in February 2019 and the Met Gala in May of the same year. 

Yet, by July 2019, their romance had seemingly faded off, as Lipa was captured locking lips with Anwar Hadid at a London music festival.

Paul Klein: 2017 to January 2018

While Dua Lipa was on a break from her relationship with Isaac Carew, she sought solace in musician Paul Klein. The two dated for around five months before they split in January 2018. Despite, the brevity of their relationship, Klein found himself deeply affected by the breakup.

“I never felt a pain like that,” he expressed in a 2018 interview with Harper’s Bazaar, adding, “I’m not trying to be dramatic here. I think that was the first time I’ve ever been in love, and I never felt anything like that in my life.”

The lead singer of LANY bared his soul on Instagram in July 2018, detailing his coping mechanisms after his “heart got ripped right out of [his] f—ing chest,” till he could finally “make art out of really s— situations.”

His band’s entire album, Malibu Nights, emerged within 50 days of the split.  Later in August 2020, when Dua Lipa was asked if she listened to the album, she responded to SCMP with a coy, “I haven’t really heard it.”

Looks like Klein really was just a rebound for Lipa.

Dua Lipa and model Anwar Hadid’s connection became a pretty high-profile relationship in Hollywood. The tale began at a sizzling BBQ night in 2019, where Lipa made a bold move and slid into Hadid’s DMs.

Their romance kicked off publicly at Anwar’s sister Gigi Hadid’s birthday bash in Malibu, California, in June 2019. After the family meet-and-greet, the duo embarked on a series of outings, including a music festival rendezvous in London that July. The relationship went official at the Marc Jacobs show during New York Fashion Week in September, and then they strutted their love on the red carpet at the American Music Awards in November.

The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 brought Lipa and Hadid even closer, with the duo spending quality time together during social distancing. In April of that year, Lipa revealed to PEOPLE that the isolation had tightened their bond, both literally and figuratively. In fact, Lipa’s Grammy-winning album Future Nostalgia is said to have sprung out of her romance with Hadid.

Celebrating their first anniversary in June 2020, Lipa and Hadid took their commitment to the next level by adopting a dog named Dexter in July. In a candid interview with Rolling Stone in January 2021, Lipa expressed feeling “very comfortable” in her relationship with Hadid. However, the love story took an unexpected turn, and by the end of 2021, the couple broke off after two and a half years.

Aron Piper: June 2022

In the summer of 2022, the rumour mill went into overdrive as Dua Lipa was caught tearing up the dance floor at a Madrid nightclub with Elite actor Arón Piper. Fans couldn’t get enough of the duo’s electric moves. However, the plot thickened just days later when singer FKA Twigs dropped a bombshell — a video featuring her and Aron in a steamy lip-lock, setting the record straight that Piper was all ‘hers’. 

Well, was it a brief fling, or just a summer dance, we wonder!

Trevor Noah: September 2022

The next name to go down in Dua Lipa’s dating history is that of TV host Trevor Noah. The grapevine buzzed with speculation when the Daily Mail splashed photos of former Daily Show star Noah planting a friendly kiss on Lipa’s cheek in September 2022. However, a source assured PEOPLE that Lipa and Noah were nothing more than pals.

Taking the stage on the Dua Lipa: At Your Service podcast in October, Noah sang praises for her, reminiscing about first encountering her talent at the UEFA Champions League soccer final in May 2018. “Every time I see Dua Lipa, it’s at an award show. So, now that means if I see her, my life is going well,” he cheekily shared.

In a November 2022 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, when pressed about the dating rumours, Noah leaned back and erupted into laughter, leaving fans wondering if they really dated or if it was just friendship.

Jack Harlow: December 2022

In December 2022, rapper Jack Harlow fanboyed over Dua Lipa and sparked a lyrical connection with her in his track, Dua Lipa on his second studio album, Come Home The Kids Miss You. Expressing his desire for more than just a collaboration with the Levitating singer, Harlow took the courteous route and FaceTimed Lipa to seek her approval before the song’s release.

Speaking on The Breakfast Club in May 2022, Harlow shared that Lipa’s response was a nonchalant, “Oh, I mean it’s not my song. I suppose it’s OK.”

Their interactions became “less awkward” post-release, and when quizzed about a potential crush, Harlow diplomatically responded, “I admire her.” By December 2022, whispers circulated that Lipa and Harlow were hanging out after being spotted at the Variety Hitmakers Brunch. However, the flames appeared to fizzle out by early 2023, as Lipa was later seen with Romain Gavras in February.

However, the details of when Lipa and Harlow ended their brief romantic chapter remain unclear.

Romain Gavras: January 2023 onwards

Moving away from young rappers and models, Dua Lipa found herself a ‘man’ in French filmmaker Romain Gavras in February 2023. 

News about their romance began doing the rounds when Lipa made a cinematic exit from a BAFTA afterparty in London accompanied by a mysterious gentleman later identified as the filmmaker. Previously linked to singer Rita Ora for six months, Gavras’ representative confirmed their split in March 2021 due to clashing schedules and work commitments.

Gavras and Lipa chose to step into the spotlight together at the Cannes Film Festival on May 19, 2023, marking the red carpet with their public debut. However, by December 2023, the summer of love between Lipa and Gavras came to an end, leaving fans with the bittersweet echoes of their romance lingering in the air.

Callum Turner: January 2024 to present

British actor Callum Turner is stealing the spotlight as Dua Lipa’s current boyfriend with their much-talked-about romance, making waves across headlines with multiple sightings. 

The buzz about the two dating began swirling after an intimate video surfaced, capturing the duo engaged in a slow dance and possibly sharing a kiss at the after-party for the Los Angeles premiere of Masters of the Air. Recent spottings include a cosy date in Santa Monica and a passionate post-dinner kiss in West Hollywood.

Fueling the intrigue, an unverified tip from the gossip account DeuxMoi suggested that Lipa and Turner were spotted looking “very cosy” at Tower Bar after the 2024 Golden Globes. Though not officially confirmed, this tidbit adds another layer to their speculated relationship, described by sources as “new, but they’re mad about each other.” 

As fans eagerly track Lipa’s romantic journey with her present beau, these sightings only amplify the excitement surrounding Dua Lipa’s boyfriends and colourful dating history.
