Phoebe Bridgers and rumored beau Bo Burnham spotted at LA airport days after announcing her dad's death
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Phoebe Bridgers and rumored beau Bo Burnham were seen exiting Los Angeles International Airport together on Friday, January 13, a week after the singer announced her father’s death on Instagram. The singer and the comedian have been the topic of conversation for their rumored relationship for weeks now and were seen catching a flight out of Los Angeles together. Bridgers’ sighting with Burnham comes after her very recent split with Irish actor Paul Mescal, whom she dated from 2020.
This appearance comes a week after Bridgers had announced the death of her father, who was a scenic carpenter and worked on film and television sets. She has often spoken about her fraught relationship with her father, whom she said was abusive and also had ‘a drug thing’ when she was younger. The post was captioned, “rest in peace dad,” with the reason for his death not mentioned. Bridgers’ mother Jamie, with whom the singer has a very close relationship with, was a housewife and now dabbles in stand-up comedy.
Daily Mail reports that for the pair’s low-key appearance at the airport, they coordinated in matching black outfits. The ‘Punisher’ hitmaker was seen wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans and completed her look with black boots. Her hair was loosely tied back in a messy bun as she carried a backpack and maintained a low profile, with her hands in her pockets. Her beau Burnham closely trailed behind in a similar black hoodie with the hood pulled up, black slacks and an edgy pair of gray shoes.
He also wore a baseball cap under the hoodie. At some point during their walk, Burnham had a comforting hand on her back as he helped guide her through the transport hub before heading out.
Bridgers’ is all set to open for Taylor Swift in her tour next year, and was first spotted with Burnham at the Connelly Theater watching Kate Berlant’s ‘One Woman Show.’ The pair were seen being flirtatious and Bridgers apparently received undivided attention from Burnham. Prior to this, many reports had revealed that the pair were seen ‘making out’ and ‘canoodling’ in and around Los Angeles.
More recently, the pair had posted a bizarre photo with Matthew Healy kissing Bridgers, while Burnham covered his eyes and held onto the pair. The post was captioned ‘Gay Poets Society’ and has garnered more than 440,000 likes.
