There’s no better way to get a Hollywood male adolescent to get my attention than to tell me he’s dating Olivia Rodrigo. How else would I know who directs Kate Beckinsale’s ex-boyfriend’s music videos? Or that a DJ and social media influencer named Zack Bia has been hitting the nightclubs of downtown New York for several years? Currently, dating rumors related to Rodrigo are causing many millennial women to seek out one Louis Partridge, a British actor previously known for playing someone named Lord Tewkesbury in the series Enola Holmes Films.
The largely unconfirmed claims come courtesy of The sun, which leads us to believe that Rodrigo and Partridge have “exchanged quite a bit of messages” since they met through mutual friends earlier this year. Apparently Rodrigo flew to London last week with her boyfriend Conan Gray, another glossy-haired Gen-Z musician, but she was actually there to see Partridge, whom she met for dinner and clubbing. (Both are 20, so I’m guessing they can legally enter a nightclub abroad.) The sun claims that the two “acted very like a couple” and were also “inseparable.”
Photos and videos taken in London over the weekend seem to suggest they were at least hanging out:
