Eight months after her breakup from Live PD star Sean “Sticks” Larkin, Lana Del Rey is reportedly engaged to her new boyfriend, singer Clayton Johnson, according to Us Weekly.
The pop star first sparked engagement rumors on Monday during a performance of “Love You Like a Woman” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, after people couldn’t help but notice the large diamond ring on her left-hand ring finger. This prompted her fans to go back and look at other recent photos of the singer, which revealed she’s been wearing the rock since at least October.
Fans first noticed that Del Rey and Johnson had started following each other on Instagram back in August after he left the comment “I wish i was that card” on a clip of her holding a playing card in her mouth on a game show. The couple, who met on a dating app according to People, has been popping up on each others’ feeds ever since. But the first time fans spotted this particular ring was when the couple shared a photo of their coordinated Wizard of Oz Halloween costumes.
Johnson is also a musician and a member of pop trio The Johnsons, in which he serves as both vocalist and guitarist alongside his brothers Chantry and Connor. However, the family band appears to have disbanded as their last release was “Call Whenever” in May 2017 and they haven’t posted to Instagram since. Johnson also previously performed with the band Stereo Skyline, opening for major early aughts groups like Good Charlotte, Third Eye Blind, and Boys Like Girls.
