Zara Larson boyfriend
Now a worldwide renowned artist, Zara Larsson had kept herself out of most controversies, but the one thing that her fans cannot stop being curious about is the singer’s love life.
According to various sources, Zara has always been a romantic, making it a part of her identity and charm. She supposedly started dating the Instagram sensation and English model Brian Whittaker in the summer of 2017, wherein she posted a snap of him to her fans on Twitter, asking who he was. The buzz surrounding the tweet was tried to be quelled by her joking on how her fans would like their eggs cooked in the morning, but no one ever forgot about it. In a couple of months, the duo met through mutual contacts and soon hit off, but the fans could not say they were surprised.
The couple were together for about two years during the time which Zara had strife with the Youtube Influencer James Charles, whom she accused of flirting with her boyfriend on Instagram, saying that he was pestering him with his many DMs knowing that Brian was straight. The misconception was soon cleared up, and Zara made an apology to James through Twitter before she and Brian allegedly broke up for personal reasons.
Rumors surrounding their breakup were sparking with Zara walking the red-carpet solo at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards wearing a white dress sporting an arrow piercing through.
As of August 2019, Zara was reported to have had a split with her ex-boyfriend Brian Whittaker. In an episode of PEOPLE that aired on August 27th, 2019, where she was promoting her new song “All the time”, Zara confirmed that she was ‘single right now. She went on to explain, saying she was fine with being single and was excited about what life has in store for her in the future since she was rather busy with her career for a relationship. She also said that a relationship like any other of friends and family needed to be constantly taken care of and time put in and that “it takes a lot of energy”.
The Swedish pop star remained single thereafter for quite a time until the October of 2020, when Zara publicly declared her love for the 28-year-old dancer Lamin Holmen over an interview with Daily Mail. Holmen is a famous dancer who several times starred in varied music videos of Zara, some of them being Rita Ora and Larrson. Her fans once again caught a hint of the relationship beforehand as Zara dropped multiple comments on Holmen’s Instagram posts in the May of the same year.
As of March 5th, 2021, the couple are still madly in love with each other, with Zara dedicating her latest studio album ‘Poster Girl’ to being in love and added, “It’s super loved-up. I think I’m obsessed with it. It’s the reason we’re all alive, and for me, it’s the whole point for our existence”, on being asked by The Sun. The relationship continues to date, but the details are kept private by the two, so Zara’s fans cannot but have their fingers crossed, hoping that the singer has finally found her one true love.
