Hollywood's Ansel Elgort is gradually becoming an iconic star. While his career keeps soaring, Elgort has a leading lady by his side to celebrate his wins. The youngster has been dating his high school sweetheart Violetta Komyshan for a decade.


Fans were introduced to the commendable skills of star actor Ansel Elgort when he starred as an unfortunate lover in 2014's romance-drama "The Fault In Our Stars." While his character Augustus Waters did not live to revel in love, Ansel's real-life romance is one that had endured a decade.

The movie star has been dating his high school sweetheart Violetta Komyshan since 2012. The pair became a celebrity couple after Elgort gained fame, and since then, their on-and-off love has been a subject of interest for their teeming fans.

Once speaking in an interview with Cosmopolitan in 2017, Elgort's girlfriend opened up about how they became an item.

Komyshan, a successful dancer, shared that she had been hanging out with a friend in their LaGuardia Highschool when she spotted Elgort. It was love at first sight for her, and she confirmed that Elgort felt the same way after he asked a mutual friend to introduce them.

The two hit it off from the start of their first date at Starbucks, and by Komyshan's sophomore year, the two officially started dating. Things went awry in 2014, as Elgort reportedly ended their relationship due to his busy schedule. 

In this period, he was linked to his "The Fault In Our Stars" fellow star Shailene Woodley, but he insisted that they were platonic friends. Elgort was also linked with Kaitlyn Dever from "Men, Women, & Children."



Elgort and Komyshan were apart for one year, during which an insider confirmed to Us Weekly that the lovers tried to navigate his newly-found fame, but to no avail. However, by January 2015, the two were back together. 

The "West Side Story" actor's relationship seemed to be seamless for a while as he and Komyshan attended star-studded events, graced red carpets, and packed on the PDA at sporting events. 

In 2019, Elgort made headlines after suggesting that his relationship with Komyshan was somewhat open. The star shared that he was looking to find more love outside his relationship.

Also, in 2019, Elgort brewed rumors of relationship drama in an assumed triangle with him, Komyshan, and fellow "West Side Story" star Rachel Zegler. Critics trolled Zegler as she was labeled a "homewrecker" on social media.


However, she publicly addressed the issue, noting that all she had for Elgort was genuine love as a co-star. The award-winning actress eventually deactivated her Twitter account due to the social media drama. 

Elgort and Violetta were still going strong when he got entangled in sexual assault claims in 2020. The "Divergent" actor would later claim that he and the girl in question had a consensual affair that ended in a bad breakup.

As of January 2022, Elgort and Komyshan have proved their love only keeps getting stronger. For her 26th birthday, Elgort organized an intimate Burlesque-themed birthday party with some friends.

The group celebrated Kimyshan at The Nines, where Elgort gathered them around a piano and serenaded the birthday girl. The celebrity lovers were also spotted in a lime green Maserati making stops at Balthazar and The Slipper Room.
