Speculation started about Dua Lipa and Callum Turner last week at the Masters of the Air premiere when they were seen getting close at the afterparty, plus the fact that she was even there since she has no professional association to the series.


A couple days after that, Dua turned up again at a Masters of the Air Q&A, after which she joined him for dinner. You know it’s romance, and early romance, when you’re showing up to watch a boy talk, lol. At the beginning of our relationship, I was going to Jacek’s beer league hockey games and he would come to see me speak. Now? All these years later? He changes the channel when I’m on TV, hahahahahaha. 


Back to Dua and Callum – two nights ago they were out at Sushi Park. As you can see from these photos, it’s on, it’s official. The speculation can stop because we have confirmation, we can crown the first couple to debut in 2024 … 

Dua Lipa and Callum Turner in LA on January 17, 2024

It’s DuCal! 

Or Callua? 

Whatever you want to call them, they’re HOT, they’re equally hot, I love this, I love the way he’s holding onto her face in one of the shots. I’m happy for this to be the B-plot to TNT. In fact, if this ends up being the A-plot for whatever reason, like when TNT take a break in their relationship and Dua and Callum end up being our weekly rom-com, I’ll take it. 


As for how they met… my colleague, Kadija, has a theory that it was through Mustafa the Poet because he’s good friends with both of them and she just said in Rolling Stone that:

“Dating, I think overall, is just a little confusing. It’s either through friends of friends or people you trust where you can meet new people, because [dating] is not really so straightforward when you are, I guess, a public person.”

The Mustafa hypothesis, then, is believable. So everybody is a winner here, except for Jack Harlow. It’s not happening for Jack Harlow.
