Olivia first sparked dating rumors with the 20-year-old actor in October 2023, and it seemed that the romance was all but confirmed when photos of the two indulging in some PDA while out in New York hit social media in December.

The two have not officially confirmed the status of their relationship, but Louis recently broke his silence on the alleged love story in an interview published last month.

While discussing the challenges of dating as a celebrity, he admitted: "I think [Olivia's] got it a lot worse than I have. I can be a bit of a normal person. She's got tons and tons of eyes on her case."

As the Grammy winner continues her sold-out arena tour, Louis has been spotted by fans at several of the North American shows thus far, including her opening night in Palm Springs.
