The DJ and the model were spotted out and about.
The DJ and the model were seen out and about recently. But are Zedd and Olivia Culpo really dating?
Us Weekly reports that Zedd and Olivia Culpo were at Coachella this past weekend, where the pair were seen “getting cozy” in the crowd. They took in Ariana Grande’s performance at the festival, and were seen “swaying back and forth together” as she sang her hit song, “God is a Woman.”
This was the second time at Coachella that Zedd and Olivia Culpo were seen together — the first time, the duo was “hanging out” backstage while waiting for Zedd to start his set at the acclaimed festival.
Let’s look at what we know about this possibly hot new couple.
Olivia Culpo isn't looking to get serious with anyone right now.
1. They’re not exclusive.
Olivia Culpo is one of the most beautiful women in the world, so it makes sense that she would be interested in trying all her available options. And that’s what a source close to the model told E! News, who also said that she and Zedd are “not serious” if they are, in fact, dating in the first place. “Olivia has hung out with Zedd a few times recently. They met up at Coachella and had a great time, but they aren't seriously dating. Olivia was with Zedd backstage and went to his trailer to hangout before and after he performed. They will talk and text here and there, but Olivia is still dating around,” the source said.
Zedd is someone who likes to be the center of attention.
2. Zedd doesn’t like dating famous women.
Back in 2015, Zedd dated Selena Gomez. And though the relationship was short-lived, the hard feelings were not. Zedd told Business Insider that there were several things he didn’t like about dating Gomez, but he had the biggest problem with all the “media scrutiny” surrounding his relationship. “Reporters were calling my parents. People were hacking my friends' phones. I was pissed. I kind of knew what I was getting myself into. She is one of the most talked about people in the world, but I had no idea how much that would change my life,” he said.
3. Olivia Culpo just broke up with Danny Amendola.
Until recently, Olivia Culpo was dating sports star Danny Amendola. For a while, it looked like the duo were going to walk down the aisle, with Culpo claiming that she was “serious” about Amendola because he was serious about her. However, according to the sports site 12Up, the relationship hit the skids when Amendola signed a contract with the Detroit Lions. “Dolphins wide receiver Danny Amendola is out of Miami, and that could lead to the possibility of being out of a girlfriend. Culpo was not happy when Amendola left New England to start playing for Miami last season. And now that he is going to Detroit, which isn't ... quite Miami, things could get testy once more,” they report.
Danny Amendola is being "shady boots" about his ex-girlfriend's possible new boyfriend.
4. And Danny Amendola is still throwing shade about it.
Olivia Culpo’s split with Danny Amendola is still new and fresh, so it makes sense that he’s still in his feelings about it. But what didn’t make sense is his response to the recent rumors about Zedd and Olivia Culpo dating.
According to The Daily Mail, Amendola got petty about the rumors by taking to Instagram. In a now-deleted post, he was shown with his shirt off and flexing his abs, as the classic Quentin Tarantino film Pulp Fiction played in the background. While that, in and of itself, isn’t a bad thing, the fact that Amendola was watching the “Zed’s dead” scene from the film was nothing if not immature. Surely, there are better ways to convey your disappointment about your former flame moving on with someone else.
5. However, Olivia Culpo remains unbothered.
Like a true fierce queen, Olivia Culpo isn’t letting the petty comments from her now-ex-boyfriend get her down. According to Fox News, she responded to all the petty shade by showing off her toned, beautiful body at the Coachella festival. Fans were taken aback by how gorgeous she looked in a black-and-white halter bikini — and she made sure to share the love on Instagram, where she posted the photos along with a shout out to her so-called “glam squad.”
So it remains unclear whether Zedd and Olivia Culpo are dating, but we know that whoever is dating Olivia Culpo is a lucky man, indeed!
