Dua’s love life has been anything but smooth sailing, and her first public romance was no exception. Back in 2013, two whole years before dropping her debut single New Love, the popular star was linked to British model and chef Isaac Carew.

Sharing a romance both in and out of the limelight, the pair had a bit of a rocky relationship, briefly splitting in 2017, before reconciling in 2018 when they were papped arm in arm enjoying an evening out in London.

Unfortunately, that same year, things got messy when Carew found himself in the middle of a dating scandal. Spotted hanging out with a mystery woman at G-A-Y nightclub, the internet exploded with speculation.

At the time, Isaac took to Instagram to clear the air, stating, “Both Dua and I have fallen into the hands of tabloids causing drama and linking us to different people when there is simply nothing there…” He then went on to clarify, “We spent 3 and half years happily together with loyalty and love and we never broke up in the first place because we had problems like that… Luckily our skin is tougher and love is stronger than this.”

Sadly, even with all that love and tough skin, the pair called it quits for good in 2019.

Ex: Paul Klein

Who is he? Singer
Dated in: 2017-2018

Next in Dua Lipa’s dating history is Paul Klein.

Taking a break from her relationship with Isaac, Dua embarked on a passionate, albeit brief, romance with the LANY guitarist and frontman. Meeting at the British Summertime Festival in June 2017, the pair quickly started sharing cozy snaps together, and it was clear that they weren’t all that fazed about hiding their romance from the public eye. 

After heading out to dinner together in Mexico, Dua posted a photo on Instagram, captioning it: “Tonight was perfect. Paul and I stumbled upon the best omakase restaurant ever. The wagyu beef was so good, Paul starting saying some crazy things and we ate till we couldn’t breathe and ended the night next door in a japanese whisky bar on perfect whisky sours that tasted like lemon pie. The end.” 

Despite giving us #couplegoals, Dua and Paul’s love story didn’t last, and she ended up back with her ex in 2018. Since then, some LANY fans have speculated that Klein wrote the track Thru These Tears while wrestling with his heartbreak following their split.

Ex: Anwar Hadid

Who is he? Actor & Producer 
Dated in: 2019-2021

In 2019, Dua made her annual pilgrimage to the British Summertime festival, but this time, she was spotted in the arms of a new bae: actor and producer Anwar Hadid. The younger brother of supermodels Gigi and Bella Hadid was photographed sharing a kiss with the singer as they cozied up to watch their favorite bands together.

With their festival snap plastered across the internet, romance rumors started spreading like wildfire, and by November 2019, they had gone red carpet official, sharing another public smooch at the American Music Awards

After conquering the red carpet, the pair got to know each other even better when they were forced to isolate together during lockdown. Speaking to People, Dua shared, “We’ve been making the most of this because we got all this extra time that we weren’t expecting to just hang out. It’s been an absolute blast, and we’re learning so much more about each other.”

It turns out, all that getting to know each other didn’t guarantee a fairy-tale ending, and by the end of 2021, the pair parted ways due to “scheduling conflicts.” 

Rumored Ex: Arón Piper

Who is he? Actor & Singer
Dated in: June 2022

Next on the list of Dua’s celebrity hook-ups is actor and singer Arón Piper, who rose to fame playing Ander Muñoz in Netflix teen drama Elite. Although these two have never officially confirmed a relationship, they certainly got fans talking in 2022 when they were captured “dirty dancing” at a nightclub in Madrid. 

To complicate things further, the next day, British Cellophane singer FKA Twigs basically broke the internet when she shared a video of herself on Instagram making out with Piper on a beach. One user took to X (formally Twitter), saying, “i swear i just saw a video of aron piper dancing with dua lipa like 10 minutes ago and now this with fka twigs… what’s going on?”

Despite rumors of a love triangle, it turns out that Twigs and Piper were actually there to film a video for Twigs’ track Killer. But the mystery of what was actually going on between Dua and Arón is still yet to be solved… 

Rumored Ex: Trevor Noah 

Who is he? Comedian & TV Host
Dated in: September 2022 

Trevor Noah

Dua set the rumor mill ablaze once again in late September 2022 when she was spotted enjoying a cozy dinner with none other than the hilarious Trevor Noah at a popular Jamaican restaurant in the heart of New York City.

After meeting at the Grammys earlier in the year, the duo were seen looking extremely comfortable in each other’s company and were even caught sharing a hug (or was it a kiss?) before parting ways for the evening.

Not long after, Dua confirmed that she was very much single. Chatting to Charli XCX on her At Your Service podcast, she said, “For me, this is the first year I’ve not been in a relationship for a very long time.”

However, Trevor never confirmed nor denied a relationship, choosing to coyly laugh it off when questioned by The Hollywood Reporter. Talk about elusive… 

Were these two the real deal or was it all an illusion? I guess we’ll never know!

Rumored Ex: Jack Harlow

Who is he? Rapper
Dated in: December 2022

By December, it was bye-bye Trevor and hello Jack Harlow.

Just months after Jack rapped that he was “tryna do more with her than do a feature,” rumors started to circulate online about a potential romance between Dua and the Lovin on Me rapper.

After an awkward initial interaction when Jack asked for Dua’s blessing to release his track Dupa Lipa, the duo finally met in person at the Variety Hitmakers Brunch in LA in December 2022, and kept in regular contact. According to a Page Six insider, Jack mentioned that “he was very interested in her, and was going to strongly pursue a romance.”

Although the couple were supposedly spotted hanging out again after her set at the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball, neither Dua nor Jack ever confirmed a relationship. 

Ex: Romain Gavras

Who is he? Film Director
Dated in: 2023

Age ain’t nothin’ but a number for this pop princess! 

By 2023, Dua had a new love interest in her life in the form of French filmmaker Romain Gavras. And, despite a 14-year age gap, Lipa and Gavras were all over each other for eight months straight.

According to Cosmo, these two were first introduced to each other over the festive period by close mutual friends, and by February 2023, they were seen looking very loved up after the Saint Laurent Paris Fashion Week show. Just a few months later, the pair went public, making their official red carpet debut for the premiere of Omar La Fraise (The King of Algiers) at the Cannes Film Festival.

In July 2023, Dua and Romain jetted off to sunny Sifnos in Greece and documented their romantic getaway on socials, sharing many cute snaps together, including one of them wearing matching black outfits. 

Sadly, it turned out that Romain wasn’t Dua’s French prince charming, and they called it quits at the end of the year. Perhaps Anwar Hadid’s cryptic social media comment, “Trying to not find and kill him,” hinted at trouble brewing beneath the surface? 

Or maybe Romain just didn’t have that “je ne sais quoi”?

Boyfriend: Callum Turner

Who is he? Actor 
Dated in: 2024-now

Has Dua finally found “the one”?

Dua and Callum first got people talking back in January 2024, when TMZ leaked pics of the pair slow dancing together at the after-party for the premiere of Masters of Air. Then, over the course of the month, more photos emerged showing Dua and the actor enjoying romantic dates and passionate kisses in public.

Between February and April, the duo seemed to be fully embracing their public romance, attending the Grammys after-party, The Brit Awards, AND the Time100 Gala together. 

By May 2024, Dua decided it was time to go Instagram official, sharing a cute carousel captioned “Sunshineeeeeee :)))))”, including an image of her and her beau arm in arm sporting matching leather jackets.

In an interview with TIME in April this year, Dua spoke openly about her belief in manifestation, stating, “I stand very firmly in the belief of putting things into the world. Subconsciously, you just work towards them. Nothing’s ever too big.”

Did Dua somehow manage to manifest her relationship with dreamboat Callum Turner? 

We’ll never know for sure, but they’re definitely giving us major couple envy!

By the looks of Dua Lipa’s dating history, she’s no stranger to love and loss in the spotlight, but it looks like she may have finally found her man. 

What are your thoughts on the star’s latest romance? Do you think they’ll be in it for the long haul or has Lipa taken “the leap” too quickly?
