New Zealand actor KJ Apa can make anyone fall in love with him with his dashing personality and natural acting skills. The heartthrob actor has several female fans worldwide who are interested in knowing some details about his love life. However, the Riverdale star has been tight-lipped when it comes to spilling the beans about his relationship.
Since the actor has kept the cards related to his love life close to his chest, there were various rumors related to his dating life. He was speculated to be dating his on-screen girlfriend and was also alleged to be in a relationship with a minor.
Is KJ Apa Dating Girlfriend Or Is Single?
Even when fans can track every drama-filled moment of their star on screen, they can sometimes be clueless when it comes to their life behind the cameras. Same is the case with KJ Apa's real-life relationship.
You might have seen him romancing in the CW drama series Riverdale but might not have any clue of him having a girlfriend in real life. That's because the actor seems to be very much single. When many celebrities exhibit their relationship via social media or make a public appearance with their love, the actor hasn't provided any glimpse of his possible love life.
However, he was once alleged of dating a minor. On 11 January 2018, KJ was spotted wih a mystery blonde at the Vancouver Airport. He was returning to Canada from the Christmas holidays for the shooting of Riverdale.

Later, it was reported that the girl was 16-year-old Corinne Isherwood whom KJ had been dating since November 2017. Prior to the airport, the alleged lovebirds were also spotted having lunch with their friends. They were also seen spending the New Year together in Hawaii.
Meanwhile, KJ was also assumed to be dating his Riverdale co-star Camila Mendes. While fans were expecting the on-screen romance to be true in real life, KJ opened up that they are good friends. While chatting about the on-screen sex scenes with Cosmopolitan magazine in May 2018, KJ said,
“It’s weird with someone you don’t know that well. On a movie set, you have time to get to know the person and rehearse before shooting. Camila and I just had to dive into it. Now that we’re friends, it’s easier.”
Meanwhile, Camila also came forward with her relationship with co-star Charles Melton. KJ portrays the character of Archie in the American teen drama, and Camila plays the role of his love interest, Veronica.
