Simu Liu is finally talking about his dating life, but not in his own words. Since the end of June 2022, the Shang Chi actor has been linked to actress Jade Bender. And now it looks like the two have confirmed their relationship.
Are Simu Liu and Jade Bender Dating?
In a nutshell, they seem to be dating. On July 20, 2022, Liu and Bender walked the red carpet together at the ESPY Awards 2022. The duo even posed for side-by-side photos. Liu dressed completely in black for the event, wearing a black suit with a black unbuttoned shirt underneath and mirror-smooth shoes to complete the outfit. Bender on the red carpet in a dazzling, off-the-shoulder dress with a hint of sheer.
They all laughed and leaned on each other as they posed for the cameras. After they left a restaurant in West Hollywood together, dating speculation arose between Liu and Bender in late June 2022. They got into the same vehicle and drove off. Then he invited her to Jimmy Kimmel Live! barely a week later.
But this is not a matter of two people getting to know each other. Following their after-dinner photos, fans ducked into the actor’s background, believing that they’d known each other since 2019. In 2019, the couple posed for photos at the Unforgettable Gala in Beverly Hills, California. With this appearance, the Shang Chi actor finally puts an end to the rumors that Bender would be his girlfriend. Liu, who is known for keeping his love life private, may suggest that he is more open about his relationships. Not only does he confirm their connection, but he also confirms that he is not gay, as previously claimed.
