TikTok has always had a reputation for speculating, deciphering, and predicting rumoured celebrity romances—whether or not there’s actually any validity to those rumours, of course, is neither here nor there.

Psychologists may never truly understand the deep-seated obsession gen Zers have with celebrity trysts, affairs, and flings. Nevertheless, it’s a topic I feel strongly about, and one that we’re going to dive into now.

Listed below are ten of the juiciest rumoured celebrity romances, all of which were born and then spread throughout the gossip train that is TikTok. Spoiler alert: our friend Harry Styles will feature heavily throughout this article.

1. Harry Styles and Taylor Russell

I thought we’d start off with one of the timeliest rumoured romances. Our very own Harry Styles has been spotted walking (and potentially holding hands, you judge the video for yourself) with Bones and All actor Taylor Russell.

2. Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell

I don’t think there’s anybody on this planet that didn’t hear about the potential romance between actors Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell. The two’s on-screen (and off-screen) chemistry completely took over the internet back in March.


i hope the movie is good #sydneysweeney #glenpowell

3. Harry Styles and Emma Corrin

While most of the internet will agree that these two are definitely just very close friends, Styles and Emma Corrin have definitely also been hit by the rumour mill once or twice over the years.

4. Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet

Although online sources (aka TikTok fiends) are almost positive that makeup mogul Kylie Jenner and actor Timothée Chalamet are an item, the couple are yet to confirm anything publicly.

5. Maya Jama and Leonardo DiCaprio

This one might be one of my favourites, purely because of how random it is. Also, the fact that fans were convinced these two were seeing each other simply due to the fact that Maya Jama was seen wearing a necklace that said Leo. Any real Jama fans would know that the presenter’s star sign is Leo…duh.


I just woke up😂 what is going on? #mayajama #leonardodicaprio #dating #celebrity #dating #fypシ #foru

6. Zayn Malik and Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez is always rumoured to be dating someone in the spotlight. Netizens’ most recent hypothesis? Former One Direction member Zayn Malik.


Those are Selena's hands!!!! I think they will make their relationship official through music🤭 #selenagomez #zayn

7. Selena Gomez and Jeremy Allen White

While we’re on the topic of Miss Gomez, she’s also been rumoured to have cozied up to The Bear star and recently divorced Jeremy Allen White.

8. Shakira and Lewis Hamilton

According to People, which is as we all know a trusted news site, singer Shakira and F1 driver Lewis Hamilton have struck a romance of their own. However, there don’t seem to be any wedding bells in the future as the two are keeping it “fun and flirty.”

9. Matty Healy and Taylor Swift

Now, I know we’re all very aware that if these two were even ever a thing, it’s now definitely over. However, TikTok had a field day with this one so it deserved a mention.


matty was singing to a different part of lover btw. but taylor was really looking at him during that part in the top clip #taylorswift #mattyhealy1975 #the1975 #fyp #foryou

10. Khloe Kardashian and Michele Morrone

Even if this one isn’t in the slightest bit true, I think fans were just happy to see Khloe Kardashian running toward the arms of a man who isn’t Tristan Thompson. I definitely wouldn’t turn away from 365 Days actor Michele Morrone.
