Who is Ansel Elgort Dating?
It has been reported that Ansel Elgort is seeing his high school sweetheart, Violetta Komyshan. Ansel has called the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn home since 2017. Elgort solicited donations for the Thirst Project from loved ones and admirers for his 21st birthday. Elgort went nude in April of 2020 to raise money for victims of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In June of 2020, a woman accused Elgort of sexually abusing her in 2014, when they were both 17 years old. Elgort posted on Instagram that he and the woman had a “brief, legal, and fully consensual relationship,” thereby refuting the claim.
The pair broke up for a short time in 2014, which was sad for everyone involved. Since Ansel was so busy at the time with filming and press interviews, US Weekly claims that they were attempting to figure out how serious he was about the relationship.
Ansel set the record straight about his romance in an interview in 2015, confirming that he and Violetta were back together. Then, in a most endearing way, he said that he was well, but felt like something was missing. He finally admitted that love was the reason. They were caught on camera making out in public a short time afterward. This proved that they were together once again.
Ansel made a music video in 2017 and Violetta was the main attraction. In the same year, the pair were caught on camera sharing another passionate kiss at the ‘Baby Driver premiere. In High School, Ansel and Violetta began dating.
They both graduated from the prestigious LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts. Their romance began in the school cafeteria. When Violetta first laid eyes on Ansel, she thought he was hot, but she had no idea that they attended the same high school.
Ansel eventually persuaded a friend to introduce them, and the two met up at Starbucks. They started exchanging numbers and ended up becoming fast pals. As the school year came to a close, they began dating.
