In New York City, Gus Wenner, the CEO of Rolling Stone magazine, was seen walking alongside Elle Fanning.
He was dressed in jeans, a shorter black coat, a plaid shirt, and a brown scarf. Additionally, he held a cigarette in his left hand.
Right before their walk, this duo was spotted grabbing dinner alongside Lorde and a few other people.

It’s still unclear how their romance started or when it happened, how they met, could it be through mutual friends or they just crossed paths or could it be through DM’s?
Everything is yet to be uncovered but one thing is clear the two do follow each other on Instagram so a small clue could be that there is really something going on between these two.
Fanning donned a lengthy black coat to go with her jeans and black ballet flats, while the magazine executive sported a plaid button-down and tan scarf under his black coat and jeans.
Interestingly, the actress announced her single status seven months prior to this new romantic development.
