A few days after model Kaia Gerber and actor Austin Butler became the subject of romance rumours, it appears the pair are already onto the mini-break phase of their relationship.
The pair were first spotted together in London last week, before another sighting in Los Angeles where they were photographed leaving a yoga class together. Now, E! News reports Gerber and Butler were spotted packing their suitcases into a car before heading to the Los Angeles airport on Wednesday, just a few days out from Christmas. Anyone else immediately get an image of Bridget Jones and Hugh Grant driving out of London together whenever a couple’s first minibreak happens?
For the flight, Gerber wore a leather suit jacket, a black top, jeans and a pair of black boots. She held a black tote and wore a pair of black sunglasses to avoid notice.
If there was still any doubt these two were dating, yesterday, a source spoke to People confirming the relationship and taking a dig at Gerber’s last boyfriend, actor Jacob Elodri, who she broke up with last month after a year, in the process.
“Austin and Kaia are in fact dating,” they said. “All of her friends think they are so adorable and it’s a total step up from her last relationship and she knows it too.” Wow, go off! They added, “She seems really happy. All of her friends think he’s really cute.”
Butler split with Vanessa Hudgens in January 2020 after their conflicting schedules put a strain on the relationship. They first began dating in 2011. Following splitting with his longtime girlfriend, Butler was seen locking lips with Lily-Rose Depp in August.
A month ago, a source confirmed Gerber and Elordi’s split to E! News, saying the break-up was “amicable.” For his part, Elordi has been spotted spending time with Lori Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli.
It’s not likely Gerber will comment on her split from Elordi, nor her new romance with Butler, nor where on Earth these two kids are going right before Christmas Day. She previously shared in an interview for i-D that she likes to keep her love life private, explaining, “You have to silence the outside world. The only people who know anything about anything are the people in the relationship. The public is very loud, so you have to make your own feelings even louder.” Okay! Enjoy!
