Days after addressing her former relationship with Hunter Ecimovic in a new interview, Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown showed fans a glimpse into her adorable date nights with her boyfriend of one year, Jake Bongiovi.
On Thursday, the British actress shared a cute black and white shot of her with Bongiovi sharing a laugh over an ice cream sundae. The next slide featured a video of the pair playing a game of Dance Dance Revolution in an arcade. Brown captioned her post, “Always b my baby <3.”
In the shot, she wore her blonde lob straightened with a Van Cleef & Arpels necklace with a singular Alhambra pendant and an oversize Detroit Red Wings hockey jersey.
Bongiovi is the 20-year-old son of Livin’ on a Prayer rocker Jon Bon Jovi and has been linked to the Enola Holmes actress, 18, since last summer. Ever since, they’ve made appearances on each other’s Instagram accounts, and celebrated the young star’s 18th birthday together. In March, the 2022 BAFTAs ceremony marked the couple’s official red carpet debut.
Their relationship took place in 2020 before Brown broke things off in January of 2021. Later that year, Ecimovic (also known as Hunter Echo), went on Instagram Live claiming he “groomed” the then-17-year-old Stranger Things actress.
In July 2021, Brown’s representative hit back on the claims in a statement that read, “Mr. Ecimovic’s remarks on social media are not only dishonest, but also are irresponsible, offensive, and hateful. Instead of engaging in a public discourse with him through the press or on social media, we are taking action to ensure that he stops this behavior once and for all.”
A year later, Brown addressed it herself in a new interview. “It was a year of healing. When you get publicly humiliated this way, I felt so out of control and powerless,” the actress told the publication. “Walking away and knowing that I’m worth everything and this person didn’t take anything from me, it felt very empowering. It felt like my life had finally turned a page and that I actually had ended a chapter that felt so f***ing long.”
