Ever since British actor Damson Idris took on the role of Franklin Saint in FX’s Snowfall, he’s been on everyone's radar. There's talk of Damson being the next Denzel Washington. The star has been dubbed the newest heartthrob in entertainment, so things are looking pretty good for the actor, who's most recently been turning heads in Prime Video's killer series Swarm.
It's safe to say Damson's future in Hollywood is looking bright. But does he have someone to share all his success with? In the past, Damson has kept a low profile, so for a while, it was hard to tell if was in a relationship. But now, Damson has gone public with one very lucky lady. So, who is Damson Idris dating? Here’s everything we know.
Who is Damson Idris dating?
In December 2022, Damson and Lori Harvey sparked romance rumors when they were spotted out together a few times. Until June 2022, Lori was in a relationship with actor Michael B. Jordan. The pair dated for a year and a half before breaking things off, allegedly due to some emotional cheating on Michael's part.
Luckily, Lori and Damson got together shortly after. They officially went public with their relationship in January 2023 with a couple of adorable Instagram stories.
In February 2023, Lori accompanied Damson to the Snowfall premiere in Los Angeles — their red carpet debut together.
Needless to say, we're just delighted for this beautiful couple!
Past rumors suggested Damson was dating Saweetie, but it wasn't true.
In a March 3, 2022, interview with The Breakfast Club, Damson said the pair were simply good friends.
“No, no, me and that queen are just friends,” Damson told hosts Angela Yee and DJ Envy. “She’s a great piano player. And I didn’t know she could play piano — I didn’t even think the world knew. So I was like, ‘Oh this is a cool moment.’”
What actually led up to the pair hanging out is the fact that Saweetie is a Snowfall fan.
“She’s a huge Snowfall fan,” Damson tells the hosts. “That day we were at lunch, I think we were talking about how we could collaborate. She wanted to show me her new place because I love CB2 and I was going to give her some ideas about furniture and art, and then boom, we went. She was playing the piano. That’s it. I was in there for like five minutes and I dipped out. She’s a friend of mine.”
DJ Envy then inquired about their meet-up being a date and Damson quickly shot it down.
“No, it wasn’t a date,” Damson says. “You know guys and girls can be friends. That’s exactly what me and [Saweetie] are, we’re friends.”
We love to see Damson and Lori happy together and wish them all the best!
Catch the first season of Swarm on Prime Video and new episodes of Snowfall Wednesdays at 10 p.m. EST on FX.
