In this week’s edition of Celebrities Manifesting Romance, Megan Thee Stallion was spotted with Belgian soccer player Romelu Lukaku at a teammate’s wedding in Lake Como over the weekend. According to People, the two were seen holding hands, sitting together, and talking throughout the celebration. In 2020 Megan rapped, “I got me a European papi out in Italy,” and, well, Lukaku plays for Inter Milan.

Rumors of the possible romance come after internet sleuths spent the past few weeks wondering if Meg and her boyfriend of two years, Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine, had recently broken up. (The rappers apparently no longer follow each other on Instagram.) Megan first shared that she and Pardi were dating in 2021 in an Instagram Live, saying, “That’s my boo, and I really like him. I never said hot girls can’t have boyfriends!”

Megan hasn’t spoken about her current relationship status, but in an interview published in InStyle on Tuesday, she said she won’t be releasing new music anytime soon. “Right now, I’m focused on healing,” she explained. Earlier this year, she said she was still recovering from the trauma of being shot in the foot by rapper Tory Lanez in 2020 and the highly publicized trial that followed. Lanez was convicted on three felony charges in relation to the shooting last year.
