Since Coachella, Madix and Wai have been spotted together several times, enjoying nights out in New York City and packing on the PDA during dinner dates. During a May interview on the Today show, the Something About Her cofounder revealed that she met her new beau shortly after news of Sandoval’s affair made headlines.

“I met him at a wedding about 10 days after all of this. And in no way, shape or form did I go into that thinking anything,” she explained at the time. “I have just been taking things very, very slow and really enjoying myself. And it’s just really lovely to interact with someone who is just so nice and kind and lovely and caring.”

I’m happy.’ She said [to me], ‘Wow, I don’t have anxiety anymore. This is strange.’”
