Lorde just turned 17 on November 7. Kinda surprising, right? The “Royals” artist can come off as much older what with her grown-up lyrics, style, and voice. That said, who would have thunk Lorde would take a similarly mature approach when it comes to her love life?
While back home in New Zealand, the up-and-coming Kiwi headed to the beach with her rumored boyfriend, photographer James Lowe. The two make a cute couple but, just a heads up, Lorde’s potential love is seven years older than his talented teen queen. In the photos from Auckland, the 24-year-old and his musical friend got cozy on the beach with a bikini-clad Lorde giving James a hug from behind as he looked rather melancholy in dark swim shorts.
Not much is known about Lorde and James’s relationship though he’s a frequent guest star on her Instagram. Just two weeks ago the two left the laid-back beach attire at home for a fancy night out at the American Music Awards. James donned a suit with rolled up pants while Lorde smoldered in her dramatic black gown.
Back in August, Lorde posted a more intimate photo of her maybe bf. “James is sick,” she captioned an image of the photog seemingly asleep in bed. A month earlier, in July, the doting Lorde celebrated James’s birthday with a selfie of the pair brushing their teeth because nothing says love like good oral hygiene.
What do you make of Lorde’s older man-friend? As long as they’re happy or too big a gap? Maybe they’re not even an item?
