The model was first linked with Elliot, a music executive, in January 2021 after she split from Kourtney Kardashian's ex Scott Disick.

Lionel Richie's daughter became involved with Scott in 2017 at the age of 18 and they dated for three years before calling it quits in August 2020. She later enjoyed brief romances with Gil Ofer and Matthew Morton.

Elliot is the son of Universal Music Group Chairman and CEO Lucian Grainge, and the pair have been close family friends for years.
