Dua Lipa has confirmed her new romance with Callum Turner.

The 28-year-old Houdini singer has been romantically linked to the actor, 33, for two weeks, but neither have spoken publicly about the rumours.

Dua has now been photographed putting on a very public display of affection in Hollywood with the actor, with the pair seen unable to keep their hands off each other and kissing after a dinner date at upmarket Japanese restaurant Sushi Park.

The pair smooched on a balcony overlooking the street after their meal, with the DailyMail.com reporting she didn't seem bothered about trying to avoid the gaze of onlookers.

Their PDA came after Dua said she has been "taught a lot" by rough break-ups.

She told Rolling Stone magazine in a cover interview ahead of the release of her third album: "I think overall, (dating) is just a little confusing. It's either through friends of friends or people you trust where you can meet new people, because (dating) is not really so straightforward when you are, I guess, a public person."

Dua added: "I've had break-ups in my life where I felt like the only kind of break-up you could have was when things just ended really badly. Things ending in a nice way was such a new thing... it taught me a lot."

Her remarks appear to be a reference to her split from her French boyfriend Romain Gavras, 42, the son of acclaimed film director Costa-Gavras.

Reports began circulating in December the pair had broken up after eight months of dating.

Before Romain, Dua had a two-year relationship with Anwar Hadid, 24.

Her new love Callum was last year linked to English model Mathilda Lowther, granddaughter of the 7th Earl of Lonsdale.

He also spent four years involved with Vanessa Kirby, 35, famed for playing Princess Margaret on the first two series of The Crown.
