Despite the recent spate of high-profile relationships coming to an end, from J-Rod to Bill and Melinda Gates, there's still one set of stars committed to proving that love isn't dead—Kat Dennings and Andrew W.K.
The unexpected pair appeared to confirm their relationship on Sunday when both posted the same selfie to their Instagram accounts. The shot shows the rock star—synonymous with all-white outfits and a passion of partying—kissing Dennings gently on the forehead as she pouts her lips at the camera. W.K. also posted a photo of them kissing on the mouth to his Instagram Stories, and, two days prior, the actress shared two photos of the musician leaning casually against a black pole captioned with a simple black heart emoji.
Dennings previously dated Josh Groban after they were introduced by her 2 Broke Girls co-star Beth Behrs. But in 2016, after two years together, the couple decided to end their relationship. W.K. married fellow musician Cherie Lily in 2008 and it remains unclear when they actually separated, but he last posted a photo of Lily promoting his merch on Instagram in December 2018.
While this new relationship might seem like it's coming out of left field, Dennings actually dropped a clue about her new boyfriend on Twitter a month ago. At the beginning of April, the actress tweeted out a screenshot of W.K. pretending to be a Fox News weather man walking past a map of the midwest that just says “PARTY” over and over again. She wrote alongside the image, “me on my vaccinated walks,” to which the rocker replied with a red heart emoji. And it seems this love connection might have actually been years in the making as, back in 2014, Dennings made her interest in W.K. crystal clear, replying to a photo he tweeted of himself, “You are a tall drink of milk AWK.” But this new couple does already have one serious hurdle they're going to have to overcome, as that same year the actress also tweeted, “White pants are dumb.”
