Dua Lipa’s Ex Shares Creepy Instagram Stories Hours After She Debuts New Boyfriend

Dua Lipa’s dating life has always been a matter of public interest, which is to be expected for such a big pop star. In the past year, the “New Rules” singer has been linked to Jack Harlow and Trevor Noah, among other men. However, this week, she went public with her new boyfriend, French director Romain Gavras. While fans are happy to see her find love, Dua Lipa’s ex Anwar Hadid doesn’t share their enthusiasm.

Dua Lipa and Romain Gavras walked the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival together over the weekend, the first time they were seen together in public. Soon after, Hadid, whom Dua dated from 2019 to 2021, began posting some pretty troubling things to his Instagram Stories. While he never specifically mentioned his ex-girlfriend or her new boyfriend by name, the timing as well as the content seemed pretty suspect.

“Trying not to find and kill him,” Hadid wrote in a post accompanying a selfie in which he looked upset and had his hoodie hood pulled up. He creepily added a smiley face to that post.

In another post, Hadid smirked in a selfie and wrote “I can’t breathe.” Further posts said things like “Have fun” and “I hate the way you say my name.” He even made a static post on his grid to promote his music and put a sad face emoji in the comments section.

Social media immediately lit up with speculation that Anwar Hadid was targeting his dark messages at Dua Lipa and Romain Gavras. Many people made light of the comments, thinking they were funny and joking that they would also be upset if they were no longer dating the singer. However, others were quick to point out that the tone of Hadid’s messages were actually pretty frightening.

“I feel bad but like this is a bit too much,” one person said. Another added, “I don’t get how ya’ll are giggling at this, men are terrifying…” A third was on the same wavelength, writing, “Oh this is not cute nor funny, I hope she is staying safe like…”
