Their relationship reportedly ended in October 2023, the same month she sparked dating rumors with Arthur. On the other hand, Paul's grandson has been linked to Ava Phillippe, daughter of actress Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe.

The two were seen together in 2018, enjoying an adventurous night out in London. Though it was unclear whether they were dating or just close friends, they reportedly seemed to be having a great time exploring the city.

Ava looked chic in a plaid coat paired with a white t-shirt, high-waisted skinny jeans, ankle booties, and a white crossbody bag. Arthur, the son of Sir Paul's second eldest child, Mary McCartney, chose a casual outfit with a zip-up jacket over a graphic tee and black slacks.

During their night out, Ava and Arthur stopped by Sketch, a popular celebrity hot spot. They even bumped into Leslie Mann and her daughter, Maude Apatow.

As Phoebe celebrates her graduation surrounded by loved ones and her boyfriend, Arthur, the future holds promise and excitement. Her journey into the next chapter is marked not only by academic achievement but also by the warmth of family.
