There’s no denying that TikTok stars have transcended into mainstream fame. From the D’Amelios’ collaboration with Selena Gomez to Addison Rae’s high-profile friendship with Kourtney Kardashian, TikTok’s biggest names are pivoting away from the platform that made them famous much faster than their predecessors.
The most recent addition to that list is Sway House’s Griffin Johnson— who’s been spotted multiple times with rock music royalty, Kelly Osborne.
Griffin, 21 and Kelly, 36, were first spotted together at Craig’s in West Hollywood on October 14th. The two were asked by paparazzi if they were dating to which they ignored the question.
On October 26th, Griffin’s manager Michael Gruen addressed the rumours when asked by The Hollywood Fix. He said Griffin wants to become a host and Kelly, a former Fashion Police cohost, has been a “mentor” to him.
However, days later Kelly hinted that the two might be more than just friends during an appearance on The Talk. “Let’s just say I’m having fun,” she said.
Fast a few weeks, and the pair, who boast a 15-year age difference, enjoyed another dinner at Craig’s last night. This time, they shamelessly posted about it.
Kelly was the first to reveal their dinner “date,” sharing a selfie to her Instagram story of the two having dessert. Griffin re-shared the selfie as well.
Despite speculation, comedian Bob Menery may have confirmed the two are simply working together via Instagram story when he caught the two out to dinner. “You ain’t getting away from it my friend,” he said to Griffin as he approached the table. Kelly shielded her face from the camera at first while Griffin laughed along.
The comedian wrote, “We caught @griffinjohnson RED HOT @kellyosborne” followed by “@michaealgruen is def behind this,” implying the two were set up by Griffin’s manager.
Griffin also took to Twitter yesterday to attest he’s single, writing, “I don’t have a new girlfriend lol.”
So for now it’s probably safe to say these two are simply just friends.
