Lorde and Jack Antonoff are fueling rumors that they are an item, even though he denied earlier this month that the two were dating. The musicians wined and dined together at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammys party this weekend and they also sat next to each other during the awards show.
The 33-year-old The Bleachers singer wrote on Twitter, “Normally i would never address rumors but i resent having the most important friendships and working relationships in my life reduced to dumb hetero normative gossip. Those relationships are deeply important and sacred. with that said, im not seeing anyone. Lol.”
But, since his split from Lena Dunham, Antonoff hasn’t stopped talking about the 21-year-old New Zealand native. He told Seth Meyers that she taught him “class,” and they have introduced each other to a lot of different things. He added that she didn’t know about Lucky Charms or Cinnamon Toast Crunch, so that was something he showed her.
Meanwhile, the Royals singer told Billboard recently that the two FaceTime every day.
Lorde’s career took off thanks to Antonoff, and the two recently performed together at an Ally Coalition Benefit. Antonoff founded the non-profit organization, whose mission is to end discrimination against members of the LGBTQ community by highlighting systematic inequality.
The coalition also helps LGBTQ-serving organizations and it provides opportunities for fans and entertainers to advocate for equality.

At its fourth annual benefit at New York’s historic town hall, Lorde and Antonoff performed a four-song set, including a cover of Carly Rae Jepsen’s Run Away With Me. When Lorde told the crowd, “You’re all so nice. I wish every show was this nice,” an audience member shouted that it was also nice in Israel.
This comment was a dig at Lorde because she recently canceled a concert in the country as a protest against its policy against Palestinians.
The singer recoiled, but Antonoff stood up and told the crowd to stop the negativity because they were there to raise money.
Lorde eventually responded by saying that she is sure the Israeli people are nice, and she looks forward to meeting them one day.

In addition to the rumors about Antonoff and Lorde, some tabloids have also linked him to model Carlotta Kohl. The two enjoyed a candlelit dinner together last week at Gemma in New York City.
Antonoff dated Dunham for five years before the two split earlier this month.
Sources close to the couple said that they had been breaking up for six months, and it took them forever to end their relationship.
The Girls star addressed the split on Instagram while wearing a ring that Antonoff gave her. She said that she will always wear it because love is powerful and eternal, and it doesn’t have to have a beginning and an end.
Lorde and Jack Antonoff deny that they are an item, but they clearly have chemistry.
