Even if it’s the husky looking fellow, Lawler.
Keep reading below for more information.
How It All Began
A few days ago, Smith took to her Instagram page to acknowledge and celebrate a worthwhile friendship with Lawler, whom she has known for two decades. She celebrated this long-standing relationship with a post on her page, that showed them in a selfie photo with their heads locked together.
Although there was not much for her fanbase to think about at that moment, as all she did was celebrate an incredible friend. But speculations arose on Saturday, August 14, 2020, when she again shared a video of them in the backseat of a vehicle.
Although the video was not accompanied by any sound, Lawler was seen murmuring a few words to the “Hysteria” actress, which immediately provoked an ear-to-ear smile from her. Her gorgeous face may have captivated her fans, but that wholesome smile was the highlight of the video.
Sadly, the words Lawler murmured to the actress wasn’t revealed to the public, but the video’s caption helped fans come to a conclusion that the pair are romantically involved with one another.
“He doesn’t need a filter (unlike me) I love you Alex Lawler ,” she wrote. Mid-text, the actress included the heart, smiling face with three hearts, and happy face emojis.
What Fans Had To Say
It’s one thing to gush about a life-long friendship, but it’s another thing to caption a video the way Smith did, and fans cannot stop reading meanings into these few incredible words
The “Mr Stink” star’s comment section was flooded with thousands of comments from her fans who believed that she’s in the early stages of a blossoming love story with Lawler. Many gushed about how the pair looked good together and other simply pleaded for them to become an item.
One fan asked; “Is this your new man?” While another replied saying; “One day hubby.”
On the other hand, some other fans applauded the actress for her bravery despite calling off her engagement to the father of her child, Horn. They tried to cheer her up with words of encouragement, telling her to be happy and try to move on with her life.
Hours after Smith’s Instagram post went viral on social media, the actress deleted the two posts showing her and Lawler getting cozy. Although she gave no explanation for deleting the posts, it was evident that the actress wanted to quench the ongoing notions online.
Daily Star reported that they reached out to Smith’s representative to confirm if her long-time friend is indeed her new man. However, “The C Word” star is yet to respond.
It’s quite possible that Smith is uncomfortable with the fact that fans are anchoring and speculating that she moved on quickly from her ex-fiancé. However, whatever the case might be, fans are sad that they will not get the opportunity to see Lawler and Smith’s iconic photo and video again.
