Ansel Elgort, Sophie Turner Dating?
Ansel Elgort and Sophie Turner are NOT dating, despite a completely inaccurate tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “false.”
According to Life & Style, the rising young stars recently began hooking up in secret. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “They are in a passionate, brand-new romance. They met through their mutual agent.” The outlet’s dubious insider further claims the pair has been “flying under the radar by going to lots of out-of-the-way LA restaurants, staying as far away from prying eyes as possible.”
Earlier this month, Elgort and Turner separately attended Variety’s Power of Young Hollywood Event, but the publication wrongly alleges the actress went “to support her new man,” despite being invited independently. The tabloid’s supposed “insider” even claims the two “definitely shared a kiss” backstage. However, there’s simply no truth to the tabloid’s love story.
Elgort is still dating his longtime girlfriend Violetta Komyshan, who accompanied the actor on the red carpet of the MTV Video Music Awards just this past weekend. The bogus romance rumors between Elgort and Turner have seemingly been concocted simply because he gave a shout-out to the “Game of Thrones” actress while being honored at the Variety event.
During his speech, Elgort said, “Sophie Turner is here. Pretty cool… I’m such a big fan.” But Elgort is clearly just an admirer of the HBO fantasy series on which she appears, and paying a compliment to one of the show’s stars doesn’t indicate she’s his girlfriend. Regardless, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us Elgort and Turner aren’t dating, and the magazine’s claim otherwise is “false.”
