Looks like things between Dua Lipa and Jack Harlow fizzled out, as the 27-year-old “Sweetest Pie” hitmaker is reportedly dating 41-year-old French filmmaker Romain Gavras!

Gavras, the son of Oscar-winning Greek-French movie director Costa-Gavras, is perhaps best known for directing Kanye West’s video “No Church in the Wild” and M.I.A.’s video “Bad Girls,” the latter of which won him an MTV Video Music Award for Best Cinematography and Best Direction. His film The World Is Yours (Le Monde est à toi) was screened at the Directors’ Fortnight during the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, with other director credits including Robert Pattinson’s 2013 Dior Homme advert, as well as the ad for Louis Vuitton’s Coeur Battant fragrance and Dior’s J’adore: The New Absolu, among others.

The rumored new couple don’t appear to be hiding their feelings for each other, as they were spotted holding hands after the Saint Laurent Fall 2023 show during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday, February 28th.

Their Paris outing wasn’t the only time they have been spotted together recently, as the Daily Mail also obtained pictures of them leaving Netflix’s BAFTA Awards after-party at London’s Chiltern Fire House and getting into the same chauffeur driven car together. Romain tried to not draw too much attention to himself as his hooded duffel coat and baseball cap covered some of his face.

Dua Lipa And Romain Gavras Dating History

In December 2022, several sources confirmed that Dua was dating "First Class" rapper Jack Harlow, which fans said was a relationship he "manifested" after he contacted her to ask for her permission to dedicate a song to her. They reportedly met for the first time at the Variety Hitmakers Brunch in Los Angeles in November, with an insider telling Page Six at the time that Lipa was "smitten," and another insider telling Us Weekly, "They like each other and are both excited to see where things go next."

The "Levitating" hitmaker was also linked to 39-year-old comedian and former Daily Show host Trevor Noah in 2022. Prior to that, she was in a relationship with Gigi and Bella Hadid's younger brother Anwar Hadid from June 2019 to December 2021, who both blamed their busy schedules for the reason it didn’t work out. From August 2017 to January 2018, Dua dated Paul Klein, the lead singer of pop rock band Lany. Between 2013 and 2017, Dua was in an on/off relationship with model-turned-chef Isaac Carew, and they then got back together between January 2018 and June 2019, when she immediately started dating Hadid.

Gavras previously dated M.I.A. (and also directed several of her music videos) but his most famous recent ex was 32-year-old "You Only Love Me" singer Rita Ora. The pair dated for around six months and called it quits in March 2021 as they reportedly struggled to find time to see each other as she was busy filming The Voice in Australia.

"Rita and Romain split up months ago because of difficulties with their respective work commitments. They remain close friends," his rep told the Mail Online at the time, while a source close to Rita added: "Rita and Romain tried to make it work but they both agreed it wasn't meant to be. They remain close but it was simply impossible to maintain a relationship where they barely saw each other. And given both their busy schedules for 2021, the writing was very much on the wall towards the end of last year."
