Pop star Dua Lipa is reportedly dating Greek-French film director Romain Gavras – who also happens to be the ex-boyfriend of the singer’s top rival, Rita Ora.
According to British newspapers, Lipa and Gavras were spotted leaving a BAFTA afterparty together.
A source told The Sun: “Dua and Romain have been quietly getting to know each other for several months. They have been enjoying spending time together. The pair met each other’s close circles over the festive period and have lots in common.”
The same source reportedly added that the British-Albanian singer knows how important it is to find someone who understands her work, and that she feels Romain totally gets it as “they’re both really creative people.”
The pop singer had been single since her split from her boyfriend of two years, model Anwar Hadid, in late 2021, while Gavras split up with Ora in March of that year, after six months of dating.
Lipa has been frequently compared with Ora as they both have parents from Kosovo, attended the same theatre school in London, and were reportedly close friends before they became pop rivals.
Rumors of animosity between the two singers grew further when another of Ora’s ex-boyfriends, Calvin Harris, collaborated with Lipa on her song One Kiss in 2018, says The Mirror.
Paris-born Romain Gavras is the youngest son of French journalist and film producer Michèle Ray-Gavras and Greek-French film director Costa Gavras.
His siblings, Julie and Alexandre Gavras, are also filmmakers.
Romain’s latest film, Athena, which takes the viewer on an odyssey through the ghettos of France, premiered on Netflix in October 2022.
