Phoebe Bridgers and Paul Mescal, who have been linked romantically since the summer of 2021, are currently our favorite celebrity pair.
What makes the romance between the “Punisher” singer and the “Normal People” performer even sweeter is the fact that both were fans of the other’s work before they began dating.
Despite the fact that Bridgers and Mescal are both relatively reserved individuals, the two have shared some endearing kisses and cuddles in public. They’ve been together for a while, but they still don’t talk much about their personal lives, even though they’ve exchanged plenty of heartfelt compliments about one another.
Now that there are reports of Paul and Phoebe being engaged, here’s all you need to know about their relationship.
Paul Mescal And Phoebe Bridgers Are Reportedly Engaged, But In Reality, Are They?
A source told The Sun that Phoebe was referring to Paul as her “fiancé” throughout Coachella, leading many to believe the two are engaged. According to their story, “Phoebe is believed to have been calling Paul her fiancé as they interacted with fellow guests in California.”
It’s not entirely clear what’s going on here, especially since rumors of their engagement first arose in May of this year and the ‘confirmation’ wasn’t what it seemed to be.
Days after Phoebe allegedly presented Paul to friends as her “fiancé,” the two were spotted together at the Met Gala. Oh, and did you know what? On his ring finger, he wore an engagement ring.
In a recent profile of Paul in The Guardian, it was revealed that the couple had gotten engaged. The article also mentioned that Paul and Phoebe had met through direct messages (DMs) on social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram. The Guardian has the ominous statement, “The pair are rumored to be engaged.”
That’s probably alluding to the rumors that surfaced in May about Phoebe calling Paul her “fiancé” during a performance at Coachella. Even though it’s quite improbable that The Guardian would have carried such a tidbit without first verifying it with their celebrity interviewee, this is by no means the ironclad confirmation that has been widely reported.
Our gut tells us that if Phoebe and Paul weren’t engaged by now, they’d have denied the rumors by now. So it seems, although the pair is engaged, they have not yet made the news public.
