Who Is Dua Lipa's Boyfriend, Romain Gavras?
Dua Lipa went public with her long-rumored romance during her first Cannes red-carpet appearance this weekend. The pop star walked the carpet alongside French film director Romain Gavras, as the couple laughed, held hands, and wrapped their arms around each other while posing for the cameras.
The "Levitating" singer later shared several pics of the evening on Instagram, writing a sweet caption in French reading, "Last night in Cannes with my sweetheart."
Lipa was first linked to Gavras earlier this year, as the pair was spotted holding hands while exiting a Paris Fashion Week event, just days after they left a BAFTAs afterparty together. A source told The Sun at the time that the pair had been "quietly getting to know each other" for months.
Ahead, everything we know so far about Lipa's new man.
He is a film and music video director.
Gavras was born in Paris and is the son of Greek-French director Costa Gavras, with filmmaking running in the family. His most recent feature-length project was the acclaimed 2022 Netflix film Athena, which competed at last year's Venice Film Festival. He has also directed fragrance campaigns for luxury houses including Louis Vuitton and Dior, as well as several music videos. He won a 2012 MTV Video Music Award for M.I.A.'s "Bad Girls," and was nominated for a Grammy in 2013 for directing Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Frank Ocean's "No Church in the Wild," per his IMDb page.
He's 14 years older than Dua.
The filmmaker, born in 1981, is 14 years Lipa's senior at 41 years old. (His birthday falls on July 4.)
He was previously romantically linked to another British singer.
Gavras dated Rita Ora for several months in 2020, with the Daily Mail reporting in March 2021 that the couple had broken up. Ora is now married to Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi.
"Rita and Romain split up months ago because of difficulties with their respective work commitments," a spokesperson told the outlet. "They remain close friends."
The filmmaker is seemingly Lipa's first serious relationship since she parted ways with model Anwar Hadid. She was previously linked to former The Daily Show host Trevor Noah and rapper Jack Harlow.
