Kaia Gerber Was Seen With Vanessa Hudgen’s Ex Austin Butler And Olivia Jade Was Seen With Kaia’s Ex Jacob Elordi
Minor tremors were felt throughout the LA basin this week as a 2.5 love-quake rocked the very shallow dating pool of 19-25(ish) year-old IT(ish) boys and girls. The Daily Mail reports that a light sloshing occurred when Kaia Gerber’s recently ex-boyfriend Jacob Elordi and noodle-armed ex-collage rower Olivia Jade were “spotted enjoying an afternoon pick-me-up with several friends before exploring the neighborhood with Jacob’s dog leading the way.” Not to be out-splashed by a failed aquatic sportsperson, Kaia and Vanessa Hudgens ex-boyfriend Austin Butler were spotted “attending a yoga class together on Sunday morning before heading off in Kaia’s car.” I’ve studied the photographs of the damage supplied by The Daily Mail carefully and can report that of these two seismic shifts, the pairing of Kaia and Austin is the more significant of the two. You know, from a geological perspective. Honestly, I don’t even know who let Olivia in the pool in the first place, considering she probably can’t even swim or book an audition for The CW.
DM reports that Kaia and Jacob, who was previously (tenuously) linked to Zendaya, split “last month following a year together.” Prior to her relationship with Jacob, Kaia was all aboard the Pete Davidson Local before hopping off at Riverdale Junction on her way home, causing some to speculate she might have come between Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart. Now she’s catching a ride on The Elvis Express. Austin is set to play Elvis Presley in the upcoming Baz Luhrmann biopic. So maybe he’s just using her to get to her brother, Presley wannabe to wannabe Presley.
The model, 20, and actor, 30, were seen attending a yoga class together on Sunday morning before heading off in Kaia’s car. It comes just a month after the model split from Jacob Elordi, 24, following one year together.
Though their faces were concealed, the two appeared to be engaged in conversation as they strolled closely together down the sidewalk with boxes of water hydrating them after their workout.
The two appeared engaged with one another as they strolled down the sidewalk at a leisurely pace following their class.
Kaia opted for a blue surgical face mask, navy jacket, leggings, and boots while Austin sported joggers, a grey T-shirt and bandana over his face.
Afterwards, the duo headed inside Kaia’s car, where Austin took the driver’s seat.
Austin earned himself some serious side-eye from me for wearing that bullshit bandana for a face mask. He must have gotten his cavalier attitude about the pandemic from Vanessa, who he was with for 9 years before they broke up in January 2020. Masks should be THREE LAYERS, NUMBNUTS. You look like an idiot.
As for Little Miss Dancing With The Stars, DM says Olivia “beamed as she enjoyed a coffee date” with Jacob in LA’s “trendy Silver Lake neighborhood.” Again, I have reviewed footage of the love-quake damage (yes, I’m flip-flopping between metaphors, but it’s a holiday week. Cut me some slack!) and I’d say Olivia isn’t “beaming” so much as “self-conscious gremlining.” Jacob’s dog, on the other hand, is blissed the fuck out. So maybe DM got them confused.
There isn’t nearly as much coverage of Olivia and Jacob’s “date,” probably because it’s pretty obvious his handlers aren’t going to let him downgrade Zendaya rumors in favor of Her? rumors. But according to DM:
The duo were spotted enjoying an afternoon pick-me-up with several friends before exploring the neighborhood with Jacob’s dog leading the way.
Both superstars kept it casual in sweats as they enjoyed a relaxing Sunday afternoon together.
The duo at some point ended up in Jacob’s Range Rover, where the actor drove Olivia and another friend around.
This seems more like a friend hang to me, which might also explain why not even the DM is taking this situation very seriously. I mean, they described Olivia as a “superstar,” so you know they’re just having a laugh. That said, I don’t want to sit here and stack rank these Bright Young Things based on some arbitrary Hollywood standard. But I will. It obviously goes Jacob, Kaia, Austin then Olivia based on visibility, dating history, resume, follower count and IT(ish) factor.
