Tom and Zawe were first romantically linked while starring as a couple in the 2019 West End play “Betrayal.”
According to The Sun U.K., things turned romantic as early as February of that year, but Tom wanted to keep it under the radar. A source told the outlet, “Tom really has fallen for Zawe in a big way. They've actually been together for more than six months.”
The source added, “He is so paranoid about his private life since his relationship with Taylor that he has gone to great lengths to keep this under wraps.”
It was rumored that they moved in together last year.
Another source recently told The Sun U.K., “Tom and Zawe have stayed quiet about their relationship, but she has spent the last few weeks with him in the U.S. They are very well-suited and enjoy the quieter side of life away from the glitz and glamour of the showbiz world.”
Over a year ago, Tom moved to Atlanta to shoot his Disney+ series “Loki.”
“Their lives are typically very busy, so spending time together while not working has been something they have both embraced,” the insider added. “Tom has made a home in Atlanta during lockdown and he is expecting to spend the rest of the year there.“
A few years ago, Tom opened up about keeping his personal life private as his failed romance with Swift. He told The New York Times, “Yes, I’m protective about my internal world now in probably a different way. That’s because I didn’t realize it needed protecting before.”
