Simu Liu’s Brief Dating History…
Simu Liu made headlines for his role as Shang-Chi in Marvel’s acclaimed flick “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.” Outside of his blockbuster movie roles, the 33-yar-old actor has maintained a low profile when it comes to romance. Presently, Simu Liu is dating fellow actress Jade Bender, known for her roles in “Senior Year” and “A Cowgirl’s Story”.
The two sparked dating rumours in 2019 and since then, they have consistently appeared together for huge events like the ESPYs and Comic-Con. They can also be seen occasionally on each other’s Instagram. But that’s about the present, Simu has been linked to one more woman in the past.
While his dating history may not be as big as other stars, he surely has kept it sweet. Before romancing Jade Bender, the actor was linked to actress Tina Jung from 2016-2018, though their romance was also neither confirmed nor denied by either person.
Liu reportedly met Tina Jung in 2015 after the two had small roles in an episode of CW’s “Beauty and the Beast.” Following their work on the TV show, they reunited in 2016 on “Kim’s Convenience.” Since then, they made several appearances together.
While it’s true that Simu Liu remains relatively quiet when it comes to sharing his personal life, he made his romance official with Jade Bender on the red carpet of the ESPY Awards 2022. The One True Loves actor was posing with his girlfriend Jade Bender at the award show.
Simu Liu is one actor who has always kept himself away from controversies, except for one. In 2021, posts from Liu’s old Reddit account circulated on Twitter, including a 2015 post where he stated that, in reference to paedophilia, “From a biological standpoint it’s no different than being gay.”
Well, there’s nothing much in terms of his relationship profile but we are sure the actor has dated many women secretly. And yea, none of them is like his childhood crush for sure, eh! What do you think about this actor?
