When did Lily-Rose Depp and Austin Butler start dating? Actress was allegedly only 15
Actor Lily-Rose Depp was spotted by the paparazzi kissing 'The Carrie Diaries' actor Austin Butler. The duo reportedly engaged in some cozy PDA in London, following a romantic dinner date. Exclusive photos captured by the Daily Mail confirm that the couple went for a stroll after dinner when they were seen exchanging some steamy kisses by the riverside.
Lily-Rose Depp was previously dating Timothée Chalamet after the two co-starred in 2019's 'The King'. Austin Butler was earlier in a nine-year relationship with Vanessa Hudgens, but the pair split in January 2020. If rumor mills are to be believed, Butler apparently cheated on Hudgens with Olivia Dejonge while he was shooting in Australia and Hudgens was in Scotland. Now, 22-year-old Lily-Rose's relationship with the 29-year-old 'Elvis' actor has raised quite a few eyebrows given the latter's dating history.

When did Lily-Rose Depp and Austin Butler start dating?
Lily-Rose is the daughter of Hollywood star Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Vanessa Paradis. She debuted in the film industry a few years ago and has earned considerable appreciation for her work. Austin, on the other hand, has been actively working as an actor for nearly 15 years, since his debut as a background actor on Nickelodeon's 'Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide'. He will now star alongside Tom Hanks in Baz Luhrmann's much-hyped biopic of legendary singer Elvis Presley, which will release in 2022. He is reportedly essaying the role of Presley's overreaching manager Colonel Tom Parker.
It was reported by Daily Mail that Lily-Rose and Austin enjoyed a dinner date with a friend after they arrived together in a "chaffeur-driven Mercedes". Post-dinner is when the pair were caught by the shutterbugs. They eventually left the scene in a taxi after midnight.
Lily-Rose is no stranger to being snapped during PDA, as she turned heads after publicly making out with Chalamet in October 2019. However, Chalamet later confirmed in April 2020 that he has broken up with Depp, adding that he was "embarrassed" by their steamy PDA on a yacht in September 2019.
As soon as Depp and Butler's makeout photos emerged, internet went into a frenzy, especially pointing out the latter's history of cheating on his long-time girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens. According to unofficial sources, it was also shared that Butler had met Lily-Rose for the first time when she was only 15 years old — a fact that has shocked many.
"Since Austin Butler is trending, let's bring back the time he cheated on Vanessa Hudgens with Olivia Dejonge in Australia while she was working in Scotland. Now he's with Lily Rose Depp, that he met 5 years ago when she was 15 years old," a Twitter user wrote.
