Sources associated with the couple tell TMZ … Anwar and Dua are indeed friends, and things started with a mutual appreciation of their respective musical talents. We were told that Anwar had said he was a fan of Dua – a friend of his sister, Gigi – and she was actually a fan of his.
Dua is a big pop star. and as it turns out … Anwar also tries his own tunes. According to our sources, Dua watched his new album "Bleach" this year and told him she dug it out.
Well, we learned that in early June, things started to snow right down when Anwar got wind that Dua had broken with her BF and reached out to her. According to our sources, the two went out, had a good time, and liked each other so much that they ran back.
Then we learn that Anwar invited Dua to his 20th birthday party in mid-June – where eyewitnesses told us that it was obvious to everyone that something was going on between them, as they looked very romantic.
We also learned that Dua spent a few days in LA before flying back to London, where she lives.
Spool this past weekend in London and we've seen what we're told was a foregone conclusion … Anwar and Dua kissed in public at the British music festival Summer Time Hyde Park.
Our sources report that he was in France for Maison Valentino Fashion before he teamed up with Dua in the UK Show … but then flew straight to England to be with Dua.
So far it looks like a long-distance relationship – but we've heard that Dua and Anwar are working to make it work … at least for now.
