Lorde is rumored to be dating Jack Antonoff after recent photos of the two surfaced.
Lorde and Jack Antonoff have worked together professionally and have maintained a close friendship. However, recent pics of the two in Lorde’s hometown of Auckland, New Zealand, have many speculating whether the pair has taken their working relationship to the next level.
The 21-year-old singer was photographed with her arms tightly wrapped around guitarist Jack Antonoff while the two were out and about. According to The Daily Mail, the couple was later seen linking arms at some points as they walked with one another. Jack Antonoff, who has recently been romantically linked to Lena Dunham, announced their split only a few weeks ago. However, Antonoff has made it very clear that he is not dating anyone at the moment.
The guitarist took to his Twitter account to write: “Normally I would never address rumors but I resent having the most important friendships and working relationships in my life reduced to dumb hetero normative gossip… With that said, I’m not seeing anyone.” It sounds like he means business!
Antonoff sent that tweet out in mid-January, giving the star a month to have a change of heart. Lorde and Antonoff have worked closely together on the singer’s recent album, “Melodrama,” where Antonoff wrote up to 10 songs for the Grammy-nominated album. A source from The Daily Mail admitted that the two seemed “very much like a couple” at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party.
The source continued to mention how the pair made it very “obvious they are dating” and how “he couldn’t keep his eyes off her. She looked very smitten as well as if she was hooked. They are definitely more than friends.” Hmm, things aren’t adding up now, are they?
Despite Antonoff’s firm tweet setting the record straight in regards to his relationship status earlier this year, it wouldn’t be the first time artists who frequently collaborate with one another took their professional relationships a step further. Whether the pair is in fact dating or not, we’re sure they would make a great couple.
