THOMAS BRODIE-SANGSTER AND TALULAH RILEY'S RELATIONSHIP

Rumors of the two being in a romantic relationship had been circulating for the previous year. Riley and Brodie-Sangster collaborated for the first time on the set of the March 2021 FX miniseries "Pistol" in England.

The miniseries follows the meteoric rise of the iconic rock band Sex Pistols. Brodie-Sangster and Riley play real-life couple 'Pistols' band manager Malcolm McLaren and fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, who both infamously had a stormy relationship.

Despite the rocky dynamics between them on screen, Riley and Brodie-Sangster seemed to have grown closer together. The relationship rumors persisted six months later after the two were seen strolling around London hand-in-hand.

They continued their public display of affection by going out together once more, this time for lunch at a restaurant in Marylebone, London, on February 9, 2022. The pair cuddled and held hands as they went down the street together.

Despite the increasing unconfirmed reports of their presumed romance, the couple remained silent on the actual state of their relationship. On May 18, 2022, the rumored pair attended a screening of the 'Pistols' series in New York City.

In an interview with The Guardian published on May 30, 2022, Brodie-Sangster shared his relationship with Riley. However, he said he "wasn't dating" the actress.

Brodie-Sangster has never tried to keep his dating life a secret from his devoted fans and has always been transparent about the details of his romantic relationships.

The "Maze Runner" actor expressed his gratitude by explaining that he and Riley do not have an unpleasant relationship like their on-screen counterparts McLaren and Westwood in the "Pistol" series.

Riley and Brodie-Sangster shared their cute photos on Instagram on June 10, 2022, following interviews in separate publications. Several pictures included behind-the-scenes shots from the FX show, in which they dressed in 1970s fashion.

Although they became official on Instagram, the post—which included a photo of the couple cuddling up together—appeared to be a strategy to promote their show together.

Before having a relationship with Brodie-Sangster, Riley had two previous marriages with Elon Musk, the first marriage happened from 2010 to 2012, and the second union occurred from 2013 to 2016.

Riley did not give birth to any children during her marriage to Musk, the CEO of Tesla and the chief engineer of his space aircraft company, SpaceX. At present, the billionaire businessman has ten children from different women.
