While Channing Tatum has all but confirmed he’s dating Zoe Kravitz (if these paparazzi images aren’t enough), it seems the pair are still keeping things very low key. At the 2021 Met Gala, the two stars arrived to red carpet separately. But they were later seen leaving the grand soirée together before embarking to the Cincoro Tequila Met Gala afterparty hosted by Alicia Keys.

Kravitz changed from her glittering chain-mail slip dress by Saint Laurent’s Anthony Vaccarello into a single mesh bralette and a slouchy suit. According to an insider for Peoplethe couple “did not take their hands off of each other.”

So why were the pair not prepared to make their highly-anticipated public debut (and at the Met Gala no less)? According to Entertainment Tonightthe pair are indeed getting serious. “Zoë and Channing are dating. It started out as a friendship and eventually turned to be more. The duo was recently spotted at a restaurant in New York City being very affectionate.”

The evening also saw Rihanna and A$AP Rocky make their red carpet debut as a fully-fledged couple. While Ben Affleck didn’t make an appearance on the steps of the Met with Jennifer Lopez, the couple also met inside. Ah, love was truly in the air!

Tatum and Kravitz linked up when she approached the actor to appear in her directorial debut film, Pussy Island. In January it was announced Kravitz and her former husband, Karl Glusman, were divorcing after 18 months of marriage. As for Tatum, he split from his wife of nine years, Jenna Dewan, in 2018. He has also been linked to Jessie J.
