In the entertainment industry where everyone is interested in who’s dating who, it’s quite understandable why celebrities choose to hide their personal lives away from the public’s prying eyes. Whether they are seen out and about with a mystery person or on a walk with another star, they already know that a paparazzi has followed their whereabouts, which means they will make headlines the next day or will be trending on social media platforms in the next hours.
But then again, there are those who bravely showcase PDA with their special someone, regardless if there’s a camera around or none. Such was the case of Diplo and Chantel Jeffries during their trip to Mexico – starting the year on a sweet note.
Yes, we know – are they actually a thing? If you would base their actions on the beach getaway, then you would think that they are, indeed, a couple.
The two musicians were spotted getting cozy by a Tulum beach, with one photo showing the bikini-clad Chantel seemingly exchanging hair ties with Diplo as they walk on the shore. Other pictures obtained by the paparazzi showed them in one lounge chair as she held his face, while another one revealed they went swimming together.
Another very telling sign that they may be a thing was Diplo’s appearance on her Instagram feed – he must be worthy of a space on her social media, right? Chantel uploaded a series of photos of her still wearing an orange bikini and in one image, the record producer was seen taking the pictures of the subject.
Of course, this was not an official confirmation of the real score between the two of them but fans would like to think that they are an item. But, what’s safe to say is that they both enjoyed their time in Mexico, judging from the many pictures they took and shared with their followers on their respective social media accounts.
Before being linked with each other, both Diplo and Chantel were associated with some of the biggest names in the industry. The 41-year-old DJ, whose real name is Thomas Wesley Pentz, famously dated Katy Perry and he also has two kids, Lockett and Lazer, with Kathryn Lockhart.
Chantel, meanwhile, may be familiar with those in the know and that’s because her name controversially popped out in 2016 when she reportedly had a thing with no less than Justin Bieber. Ironically, she also dated The Weeknd, who was the ex of Selena Gomez – coincidentally the former flame of the Never Say Never hitmaker.
