What a blissful way to spend a summery New York afternoon! Jack Antonoff and Margaret Qualley were spotted locking lips while strolling toward a Brooklyn ice cream parlor on August 14, People reported. With both dressed in matching sneakers and casual, baggy-chic attire, Qualley’s arm is draped around Antonoff in another photo while carrying a bag of groceries with the other. However, as the outlet pointed out, Antonoff was also seen attending a basketball game with model Carlotta Kohl later that day.
While the maybe-couple sure looked happy in each other’s company, it had been a tumultuous year, romance-wise, for Qualley. After December 2020’s lawsuit from musician FKA Twigs (née Tahliah Debrett Barnett) against Shia LaBeouf, Qualley broke it off with the “Transformers” star. Barnett’s allegations accused LaBeouf of sexual and physical assault, sexual battery, and, per People, “knowingly giving her a sexually transmitted disease.” LaBeouf, maintaining his innocence, has entered mediation with Barnett, hoping to reach a settlement by their December court date.
In February, Qualley publicly supported Barnett on her Instagram, writing, “Thank you” next to a photo of the singer on the cover of Elle, with a headline reading, “The Singer Tells Her Brave Story.” LaBeouf and Qualley split in January, per ET Online.
