Who is Lorde’s boyfriend today?

New Zealand’s popular singer Lorde was recently rumored to have been going out with Justin Warren who is the director of the Universal Music promotions – paparazzi caught the two spending time on one of the beaches in New Zealand. However, Justin quickly denied the rumors, and explained that the two have been friends for years. Lorde was also rumored to be dating her colleague Jack Antonoff in 2018 but these appear to be just rumors as well – she is currently single and is not seeing anyone.

Lorde introduction

Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor, better known under her pseudonym Lorde, was born in Takapuna, Auckland, New Zealand on 7 November 1996 under the zodiac sign of Scorpio – Lorde is a famous singer and a songwriter who came into the spotlight after her single “Royals” got to #1 on the US Billboard 100.

Her early life and the beginning of career

Lorde’s mother is originally from Croatia while her father is from Ireland – the two decided to raise her and her two sisters and a brother in Auckland in New Zealand. Lorde’s mother is a poet who motivated her to start reading books, and Lorde fell in love with reading – she finds most of her motivation for her songs in the books she reads.

While she was attending Belmont Intermediate School, she was part of a talent show competition there and managed to win it while singing in a duo with her friend Louis McDonald – the two were then invited to perform on a radio show on which they sang covers of songs. Agents from the Universal Music Group heard her sing, and asked her to sign a contract with them which she gladly accepted – by 2011, Lorde was already singing her own songs.

First album and her career’s progression

In 2011, Lorde started working with the producer Joel Little and she landed her first extended play (EP) entitled “The Love Club” which was commercially released in 2013. The single “Royals” from the EP was loved all around the world, and helped Lorde become famous virtually overnight.

Lorde released her first studio album in the second half of 2013, entitled “Pure Heroine” and it was a major success – during the next year, she created the soundtrack for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1” movie, and recorded several other soundtracks, of while the most popular is “Yellow Flicker Beat”. She released her second album in 2017 called “Melodrama”, which was loved by her fans and hit #1 on the US charts.

Lorde has also written songs for other people, and music groups such as “Broods” and “Bleachers”. According to the charts from June 2017, Lorde has managed to sell more than five million albums around the world.

People who influenced her

Lorde listened to jazz and soul music as she was growing up – Billie Holiday, Sam Cooke, and Etta James were her favorite musicians while she also listened to her parents’ favorite artists such as Cat Stevens, Neil Young and Fleetwood Mac. She also enjoys mystery, which is why she likes artists such as Burial and The Weeknd while some of the other artists who have influenced her work include Grace Jones, James Blake, Bon Iver, The Smiths, and David Bowie.

Aside from popular musicians, Lorde’s mother is her main influence as she is a poet, while Lorde also drew inspiration from the books written by Raymond Carver, Tobias Wolff, Claire Vaye Watkins, and T.S. Eliot. Specifically, for her second album “Melodrama” she was inspired by Phil Collins, Leonard Cohen and Tom Petty.


Did she broke up with Asian?

Lorde started dating the photographer James Lowe in 2013, and the two fell for each other really hard. Unfortunately, Lorde’s boyfriend who is six years older than her was a target of cyber-bullies, and it wasn’t easy for him to handle it. He wrote in his blog post in 2014 how hard it was to live without Lorde while she was on tour around the world – ‘currently she is on the opposite side of the world on tour. As much as I miss her, I couldn’t be prouder of what she has achieved so far…’

Even though Lorde’s boyfriend was pretty much in love with her and was ready to wait for her, the two split in 2015 for unknown reasons – it was hard for both of them and Lorde expressed her feelings in the “Green Lights” song. It was her first big break-up and it took her a while to get over everything that had happened.

Appearance and net worth

Lorde is currently 22 years old. She has long brown hair and blue eyes, is 5ft 5in (1.65m) tall and weighs around 125lbs (57kgs).

According to authoritative sources, Lorde’s net worth is estimated to be close to $12 million – she bought a mansion in Auckland in January 2016 for $2.8 million, and was living with her parents before the purchase.


Honors and awards

Lorde has been rewarded numerous times for her performance, she is the holder of two Grammy Awards and two Brit Awards while she was nominated for a Golden Globe award, and was named one of the most influential teenagers by “Time” magazine in 2013 and 2014.

Social media presence

Lorde is very popular on several social media networks, but isn’t active at all – she launched her Twitter account in August 2011 and has amassed nearly 7.7 million followers but has only tweeted two times. Her Instagram account is followed by over 6.3 million people while she’s uploaded just three pictures – she has a Facebook page as well with nearly 6.3 million followers.

1I wrote my song 'Tennis Court' after having had a glimpse into the music industry, and I was thinking about how superficial people can be and how we put up all these fronts. It seems it's never cool to get too enthusiastic about anything as a singer, but I'm quite outspoken. I can't help but say what I feel, and it can get me in trouble.
2It just seems so strange to me, the way the media pits girls against each other to make sure there's always some battle like that going on. If one male singer was to make any kind of comment about another, it wouldn't be a 'cat fight'. It's incredibly unsubtle: you can hear people trying to get their headline, and I'm getting good at saying, 'I don't know, what do you think?' and they just sort of flounder. Nobody asks me about what male musicians I think about; I only ever get asked about females.


1Gets her stage name from her obsession with monarchy and aristocracy.
2Has two sisters, Jerry and India, and a brother, Angelo.
3Lorde was particularly influenced by Kanye West.
4Is a self-identified feminist.
