Dua Lipa & Anwar Hadid really want us to know about their relationship

Dua Lipa and Anwar Hadid confirm thier budding romance while attending British Summertime 2019 Festival!

This past weekend, Dua Lipa and Anwar Hadid were seen and photographed together in Hyde Park, where they cuddled up to watch Lionel Richie perform. Anwar Hadid is the “model” brother of Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid. While I accept that Gigi and Bella have interesting “model looks,” I’ve never really bought Anwar as a model, but that’s neither here nor there. The point of this post is that Anwar and Dua are together! And since Dua is one my faves, I kind of think she could do better, but I’m glad she’s not banging Chris Martin after all.

Dua Lipa and Anwar Hadid let the cat out of the bag that they’re dating by snuggling at a UK festival show — but we’ve learned before they cozied up to music, they played their own music. Sources connected to the couple tell TMZ … Anwar and Dua are, in fact, dating, and things started with a mutual appreciation of their respective musical talents. We’re told Anwar had relayed he was a fan of Dua — a friend of his sister, Gigi — and she was actually a fan of his too.

Dua is a huge pop star, and as it turns out … Anwar dabbles in his own tunes as well. Our sources say Dua peeped his new album, “Bleach,” this year and told him she dug it. Well, we’re told things really started to snowball around early June when Anwar caught wind that Dua had broken up with her BF, and reached out to her for a date. Our sources say the 2 went out, had a good time and liked each other enough to run it back. After that, we’re told Anwar invited Dua to his 20th birthday party around mid-June — where eyewitnesses tell us it was obvious to everyone that something was going on between them, as they looked very much so like a romantic pair. We’re also told Dua spent several days in L.A. before flying back to London, where she lives.

Fast-forward to this past weekend in London, and we saw what we’re told was a foregone conclusion … Anwar and Dua kissing in public at the British Summer Time Hyde Park music fest. Our sources tell us prior to linking up with Dua in the U.K., he was in France for the Maison Valentino Fashion Show … but then immediately flew to England to be with Dua. So far, it’s looking like a long-distance relationship — but we’re told Dua and Anwar are committed to making it work … for now, anyway.

I mean… it’s cute, but also: why this exhaustive timeline? Couldn’t those sources just tell TMZ that they were introduced by mutual friends a few months ago and now they’re together? Who’s leaking this mountain of information to TMZ? Anwar and the Hadids? Even if the Hadids are calling up TMZ – which is likely – it’s not like Dua is shutting it down at all. Which brings me to the larger conversation – like, I love Dua and I think she’s crazy talented, and she’s already had some hits here in America, but she’s a much bigger deal in Britain. It’s Cheryl Cole/Rita Ora Syndrome – these “super-famous in Britain” pop stars want to have a bigger crossover internationally. And one of the easiest ways to do that is to start dating an American celebrity. But is Anwar Hadid that guy? Uh, no.

    She REALLY didn’t like that story about Chris Martin, huh?

  2. MoreSalt says:

    I don’t like the vibe he gives off. Something in my gut warns ‘danger.’ I can’t explain it any better than that.

    I wouldn’t leave my drunk friend alone in a room with him.

  3. Daisy says:

    Anwar has Bella’s pre surgery and fillers face. Also he’s starring Valentino’s new frangrance campaign alongside the amazing Adut Akech and it’s literally one of the worst campaigns I’ve seen. He’s truly horrible and has this perpetually stank face. Also putting him next to an actual talented model just highlights his mediocrity.
    And Dua Lipa does nothing for me anymore, I loved the songs she released before her album, but then the actual album was very meh. LOVE that face and haircut though.

  4. Parigo says:

    He looks like the smelly son of Joaquin Phoenix and Pete Doherty.

  5. Chrissy S says:

    No idea who either of them are so go them

  6. buensenso says:

    I don’t get his appeal. he doesn’t have a good vibe. nor is he at least pretty like his sisters.
    he is weird.

  7. K says:

    I don’t have anything to say about them but I do want to express how gorgeous I find her darker features: hair, brows, lashes. Gorgeous.

  8. Harryg says:

    How the hell is he a model?

  9. SM says:

    This is when I feel old. Have no idea who these people are

  10. Alyse says:

    Age appropriate & similar social circles, makes sense

  11. whybother says:

    such a basic face
    luckily he has hadid as his family name

  12. SKF says:

    I find his face interesting and I like diversity in models. I do think that as a male model dude needs to work out a bit more!! His sisters are killing themselves in the gym every day and he looks… sort of squidgy.

  13. Xi Tang says:

    He’s actually a sweetheart, just like his sisters. I get the nepotism is annoying as hell but the replies here are all sorts of yikes.
