Congratulations to Lana Del Rey, who is reportedly seeing a new guy and also is engaged to him. According to Billboard, Del Rey and her newest romantic partner, musician and agent Evan Winiker, recently took their relationship to the next step.
Wait, you’re thinking, wasn’t she engaged to a cop just last week? No, but close. To recap Del Rey’s disorienting dating life, which moves at the clip of a Shein design cycle: In 2020, shortly after she famously dated a cop, Del Rey was rumored to be engaged to a musician she met on a dating app, whose name was Clayton Johnson. A year and a half later, she seemed to have moved on with a new musician named Jack Donoghue, whom she hard-launched on Instagram via a photo taken outside a Chicago county jail. Okay!
At some point in 2022, Del Rey and Donoghue apparently split up, and she’s been spotted several times in the past six months hanging out with Winiker, a musician and agent at a start-up called Range Media Partners. Their public dates have included attending the Malibu Chili Cook Off festival and dining at Pappy and Harriet’s restaurant in Pioneertown, California.
And now, at least according to Billboard’s unnamed sources, they’re engaged. Because so few details about their relationship and engagement have been revealed, I’m left with no choice but to assume the ring was buried at the bottom of a chili vat. Congrats to the happy couple!
The Cut has reached out to Del Rey’s team for comment and will update this post when we hear back.
