KIM Kardashian’s hairstylist Chris Appleton is said to be dating White Lotus actor Lukas Gage.
The celebrity stylist, 38, and the Euphoria star, 27, sparked romance rumors by sharing hot snaps from their recent vacation to Mexico.
Chris – who has styled Kim for years and is one of her best friends – announced his “relationship” with Lukas with a collection of photos from their trip to Punta de Minta.
In the first picture, the couple could be seen riding a four-wheeler down a trail while wearing helmets, bandanas and goggles.
In another, Chris and Lukas posed for a shirtless selfie in their swim trunks on the beach.
Chris captioned the post Joyride and tagged the St. Regis Punta Mita Resort.
Sharing the same recordings, Lukas wrote “le mejor” in Spanish – which translates to “the best”.
The couple received plenty of support in the comments, with celebrity makeup artist Mary Phillips writing: “IG officer.”
Lukas’ Euphoria co-star Maude Apatow posted a trio of heart-eye emojis and YouTuber Claudia Sulewski added: “I’m screeammingggg.”
Lukas also commented on Chris’ post, writing “Buenos” with heart-eye emojis.
Sources confirmed to Just Jared that Chris and Lukas are in a romantic relationship.
It’s unclear when they reportedly started dating.
AUDITION FROM HELL
Lukas made headlines in 2020 after a director slammed his “s***y” apartment during a Zoom audition.
The director was recorded saying, “These poor people live in these tiny apartments. Like I look at his background and he has his TV and you know.”
Lukas was then seen flinching, waiting a moment and dropping the bombshell: “Yeah, unmuted.”
He added: “I know it’s a crappy apartment. So give me this job so I can get a better one!”
The director immediately apologized and replied, “Oh my god, I’m so, so sorry. I am ashamed.”
Lukas calmed the man down: “Listen, I live in a four by four box. It’s okay, just give me the job and we’ll be okay.”
In a move that suggested he didn’t get the job, Lukas later posted the footage – which he took – to Instagram.
He captioned the clip: “If you’re not a speaking director, make sure you mute your mic when recording Zoom.”
KIM’S GLAM SQUAD
Meanwhile, Chris is one of Kim’s closest confidantes and part of her glam team.
In June, the SKIMS founder honored him on his 38th birthday.
“Happy Birthday @chrisappleton1!!!!” Kim wrote alongside a photo of them together.
“You make it so much fun to go through this glamorous life! I seriously have never met anyone as hardworking as you!
“Have the best birthday. I love you.”
Kim followed with other snaps in which Chris styled her hair while sitting in her glamorous chair.
The 41-year-old also posted shots of them on set during various photoshoots and one of Chris accompanying her and makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic on their private jet.
The trio posed for a picture while holding copies of Kim’s famous March 2022 Vogue magazine cover during the trip.
