In Hollywood, dating someone is not official until you make a red carpet debut when the paparazzi are ever-present.
Perhaps this is a way to shout their love for each other, nonetheless, the public understands that once you and your lover step on an events night together, then they are basically an item.
Of course, prior to the red carpet appearance, a lot of gossip sites have already made speculations about the real score between the two of them. This is why making it official in such a grand way is oftentimes seen as the confirmation to the rumors.
Selena Gomez and The Weeknd
Jelena fans were heartbroken over telling photos of The Weeknd and Selena Gomez months before the Met Gala in 2017, although the two remained quiet about their relationship.
However, what added salt to the wound was the singers’ appearance at the red carpet of the fundraising gala, smashing hearsays that she had yet to move on from pop star Justin Bieber.
The same can be said of The Weeknd (real name: Abel Makonnen Tesfaye), who had just broken up with Victoria’s Secret Angel Bella Hadid at the time.
However, while the Starboy singer and former Barney and Friends alum showed PDA at the red carpet, they called it quits months after, just as rumors that Selena and Justin were hanging out again started circulating.
Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse
Have you ever watched a film or a series with a pairing so good, you just want them to become an item in real life?
Such was the case with Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse, whose respective characters Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones in the popular comic adaptation show Riverdale, ended up hitting it off.
The chemistry is so on point that it was immensely hard not to wish the actors were really together. So when they made a debut in Met Gala in 2018, everyone took it as a sign that they are indeed a couple.
Lauren Sanchez and Jeff Bezos
In April last year, Jeff Bezos and MacKenzie Bezos issued a joint statement, announcing that they decided to call it quits after 25 years of being Mr. and Mrs. So naturally, people had only one question in mind, Why?
That’s when Lauren Sanchez’s name entered the scene. Prior to the big news, the news anchor and the Amazon founder had been pictured a lot of times, although they didn’t reveal what was going on between them at the time.
Of late, they attended the Amazon Prime event and graced the red carpet holding hands, making the PDA the answer everyone was waiting for.
