Pop artist Dua Lipa and model Anwar Hadid, brother to Bella and Gigi, drew some serious attention to their relationship in 2019 after they couldn’t keep their hands off each other at a UK concert. A month later, they’d gone Insta official – but how did they meet?
Lipa and Hadid met at a barbecue. Following this, some DM sliding happened and a power couple was formed.
Read more below about how Dua and Anwar’s romance blossomed from DMs to full blown adoration and love.
Lipa is known to have had three different partners or flings before dating Anwar. It appears that somewhat more seasoned men were more inside her gauge than the younger ones, in spite of the fact that beau, Anwar is around three years and a couple of months younger than her (perhaps he’s an exception to the rule).

From the outside looking in, it appears that they had not too bad of a relationship from 2013 through 2017, but after this, it got rockier.

“I have an admission to make … mine was my boyfriend, so my current boyfriend,” she conceded. “I unquestionably did that.”
Lipa explained that she met her model lover in person before eventually sliding into his DMs and getting flirty. “No, we really met at a barbecue,” she shared. “But then it carried on onto DMs.”
Lipa was first connected to Hadid in June 2019. The pair made their first honorary appearance as a couple in November of the same year at the American Music Awards.
The couple had been living in a London condo in 2020 until Lipa’s place flooded, meaning the pair had to move to an Airbnb in April 2020 until they could get it sorted out.
While dishing insights into her life as a pop star cohabiting with her man in an interview with Good Morning Britain, Dua Lipa revealed, “Both my boyfriend and I are quite used to making anywhere a home.”
