Is ‘Too Hot To Handle’ Star Harry Jowsey Dating Kim Kardashian West’s Former BFF Larsa Pippen?
Is a new celebrity couple on the horizon? That is what pop culture fans seem to think after Netflix’s Too Hot To Handle star Harry Jowsey was spotted enjoying a romantic dinner with Kim Kardashian West’s former best friend, Larsa Pippen.
Seeing as their dinner date was just too hot to ignore, many are curious about what’s going on between the pair. Are they dating, or was their outing purely innocent? Here’s what we know so far.
Harry Jowsey and Larsa Pippen enjoyed dinner together in Beverly Hills
On Sept. 7, Jowsey and Pippen sparked romance rumors when they were spotted getting pretty cozy while enjoying a meal at Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills.
“They were flirting a little bit with their elbows rubbing together and constantly laughing,” an eyewitness shared with E! News. “It looked like they are just getting to know each other.”
After dinner, the pair left the restaurant together while walking pretty close and drove off in Pippen’s car following an innocent struggle on Jowsey’s part.
“When he got behind the wheel, he could barely get in because the seat was so far forward and he is so tall,” the source added. “Larsa twirled her hair and laughed as she waited for Harry to get more comfortable and drive off.”
Jowsey and Pippen claim they’re “just friends”
The following day, Jowsey and Pippen were spotted a second time grabbing lunch in West Hollywood.
As they were sitting down enjoying their mid-day outing, paparazzi asked the pair what everyone wanted to know: Are they dating?
While Pippen kept her lips sealed, Harry tried to play it coy by telling paparazzi that they’re “just friends” and getting to know each other.
Though she had nothing to say to eyewitnesses at that time, the former Real Housewives of Miami star did confirm on social media the night before that her relationship with Jowsey is strictly platonic.
“So, I decided I need dance lessons so I called my friend Harry.” she shared on her Instagram Story while documenting their night out. “Stay tuned.”
Although they claim they’re just friends, becoming an official couple might not be out of the question for Jowsey and Pippen, seeing as both are newly single.
Back in June 2020, Jowsey split from his Too Hot To Handle co-star Francesca Farago a little more than a month after getting engaged during the show’s virtual reunion.
Two months later, he sparked romance rumors with Kylie Jenner’s BFF, Stassie Karanikolaou, after she appeared on his Instagram and Tik Tok accounts.
As for Pippen, she re-filed for divorce from former NBA player Scottie Pippen in November 2018 after nearly 20 years of marriage.
A year later, it was rumored she was hooking up with Kendall Jenner’s ex-boyfriend Ben Simmons, but the mom of four adamantly denied she was having an affair with the 76ers basketball player.
“I never even saw him, let alone left with him,” Larsa said on her Instagram Story, per TMZ. “He dated my bff’s sister and I would never.”
Though it’s unclear if Jowsey and Pippen’s friendship will turn into something more, one thing is for sure — both are single and ready to mingle.
