Dua Lipa Celebrates Her First Anniversary with Anwar Hadid

From Harper's BAZAAR
Pop singer Dua Lipa and model Anwar Hadid, the younger brother of Bella and Gigi, sparked serious romance rumors on the weekend of July 4 when they packed on PDA at a UK music festival. Could these two young stars be the next celebrity couple to watch? Here's everything we know about their connection so far.
May-June 2018: Hadid separates from Nicola Peltz - and makes out with Kendall Jenner.
The youngest Hadid had been with actress Nicola Peltz for over a year, but they split up in May 2018, her representative confirmed to page six. The couple did not consider their separation on social media. When photos of Hadid's infamous makeup session with Kendall Jenner appeared in June 2018, fans asked if he and Peltz were still together. After the pictures of the connection went viral, the actress reportedly followed the entire Hadid family. Interestingly, Peltz went on to date singer Paul Jason Klein of LANY, one of Dua Lipa's exes, but she announced that they split up in February 2019.
