The singer tweeted her praise for Normal People which prompted Paul to tweet back in awe: "I'm officially dead." Phoebe then responded: "No don't die your [sic] so talented aha."

After that, the rumour mill of their romance was in overdrive but it wasn't until November 2021 that they officially confirmed to the world they were an item by stepping out together on the red carpet.

The pair also posted a series of loved-up photos on their Instagram and quickly became a fan-favourite couple.

What happened to Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers?

In late 2022, it was reported that Paul and Phoebe had got engaged, however, they never confirmed this themselves. They seemed more in love than ever and in an interview with GQ, Paul said "To have someone to lean on through such a mad, mad time has been invaluable. Really, I don't know where I'd be without her."

But sadly, almost immediately after reports began swirling of an engagement, it was then reported that Paul and Phoebe had called time on their relationship and that the singer was now in a relationship with comedian and actor Bo Burnham.

Phoebe and Bo haven't commented on the situation themselves, but they were pictured at an airport together in January.
