British singer Dua Lipa moves to US to be closer to partner Anwar Hadid

DUBAI: British-Albanian hitmaker Dua Lipa has reportedly moved to Los Angeles to be closer to her partner part-Palestinian musician and model Anwar Hadid despite restrictions on travel during the coronavirus pandemic.

The “Physical” singer and the younger brother of Gigi Hadid spent three months in self-isolation together in London, before jetting off to St. Lucia for holiday. 

A source told British tabloid, The Sun: “It was difficult to get to the US in the first place and she knows it's not going to be easy going back and forth because she would have to quarantine for weeks on end.”

The source added: “Being in the US right now is great for pushing her career there too, especially with new music coming out. Dua's making their new place nice and homely and she has just got a puppy called Dexter with Anwar because they see their future in LA.”

According to the tabloid, Lipa purchased property near Hadid’s famous family in Beverly Hills.

It appears that the couple’s relationship is getting more serious. Last week, they adopted a puppy together from a Los Angeles-based animal rescue shelter, who they named Dexter.

The Grammy Award winning artist introduced the puppy to her 49.6 million Instagram followers, sharing several photos of their new "tiny best friend" snuggling up to the couple.

The 24-year-old singer and 21-year-old Hadid began dating in 2019 and celebrated their one-year anniversary this June. 

Lipa and Hadid were first rumored to be a couple when they were spotted at a concert in Hyde Park, London, in July 2019 — and later made their red carpet debut at the American Music Awards.

The couple has enjoyed spending time together due to the pandemic. In an interview with “Good Morning Britian,” Lipa revealed: “Both my boyfriend and I are quite used to making anywhere a home. We travel a lot, so this is fine. It’s been really, really good. We’re good at doing our things, then coming together when we want to watch a movie or play a game or do some painting or go on our daily walk.”

Bella Hadid donates designer clothing for a good cause

DUBAI: If you’ve ever wanted to get your hands on Bella Hadid’s ultra-luxe wardrobe featuring brands like Dior, Off-White and Vivienne Westwood, you may just have a chance. The part-Palestinian model this week decided to take part in the Sidewalk Sale for Social Justice in Brooklyn by donating a slew of her own clothing items to the sale, and it’s all for a good cause.

The Sidewalk Sale for Social Justice, which took place on Sunday, benefits a variety of causes such as the Black Lives Matter movement, which Hadid has been quite outspoken in her support of. 

The Palestinian-Dutch model documented the charitable event via her Instagram Stories, and showcased the “lil rack of stuff” she had for sale, which included plenty of designer items.

“I’ve got a lil rack of stuff!! curated by my sis @haleywollens ! But also so many great vendors !!! 100% of proceeds going to @abundantbeginnings @brooklyn_supported_agriculture! Thank you @sorrymydude for this (sic),” she wrote alongside a photo of herself laying among the donated pieces of clothing.

The Sidewalk Sale for Social Justice coordinators were thrilled with Hadid’s charitable contributions, and reposted her donated items on their Instagram Stories.

“This week we have donations from the best dressed baby doll @bellahadid,” said one of the posts.

It’s not the first time the model cleans out her closet for a humanitarian cause. In June, the 23-year-old donated a pair of paint-splattered Miu Miu boots for British Vogue’s online auction in aid of organizations  NHS Charities Together and the NAACP.
