Sorry Riverdale fans, but it looks like KJ Apa is off the market. On Monday, February 3, the 22-year-old shocked his 17.1 million Instagram followers when he posted a photo kissing French model Clara Berry, and seemingly made their rumored romance official.
“Coup de foudre,” KJ captioned the adorable post, which translated to “love at first sight.”
Fans first speculated that the two were together back in December 2019 after they noticed KJ had liked many of her recent Instagram posts. Around the same time, the actor told WIRED during the “Autocomplete Interview” that he had been feeling “in love” recently.
“KJ Apa is doing great, he’s very much in love right now,” he said. Later on in the interview, KJ added, “Yes, [KJ’s] alive and in love.”
Naturally, some people wondered who the lucky lady was. Previously, KJ has kept his love life pretty private so fans were shook that he was being so open. As it turned out, Clara must have been the one who had KJ feeling smitten!
As fans know, this new relationship came just a few months after the Riverdale star was spotted kissing his A Dog’s Purpose costar Britt Robertson. In July 2019, Us Weekly reported that KJ and Britt packed on the PDA at Entertainment Weekly’s Comic-Con party in San Diego. An onlooker told the outlet that they saw the two actors holding hands, hugging and “leaning in and kissing each other.”
Previously, there were rumors that KJ was dating model Corinne Isherwood, after they were spotted hanging out in late 2017 and early 2018. But despite spending a lot of time together, the actor insisted to Cosmopolitan that he was single at the time.
“I think I’m just waiting for the right time, right girl. I’m pretty busy at the moment. I don’t know how much I have to offer to someone right now,” he admitted.
Well, from the looks of his most recent Instagram post, KJ might have finally found “the one.”
