Move over Chuck Bass, there’s a new man in the Upper East side and his name is Max Wolfe, played by the one and only Thomas Doherty. And while we’re only just discovering what’s in store for his love life on screen, much like Gossip Girl, we know exactly what’s going on off screen.

Thomas, 26, has certainly turned heads throughout his career. While he was born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland, the actor has travelled all over for his craft. From Belfast in Northern Ireland for The Lodge, to Vancouver in Canada for the Descendants films and, most recently, New York City for the highly-anticipated Gossip Girl reboot.

In 2017, Vogue named Thomas one of the 50 fittest boys in the world – so we really can’t blame you for being curious about his relationship status. 

That is why it is with a heavy heart that we tell you this… he’s taken. We think.

As Gossip Girl would say: Spotted! 2017’s fittest-finalist Thomas Doherty getting cozy with 22-year-old model Yasmin Wijnaldum at NYC’s hotspot Cipriani’s back in March.

E! Online reported that the pair shared several sneaky kisses through the meal and even linked arms as they strolled the streets of New York. Sorry Thomas fans, it looks like your celeb crush is off the market. Xoxo, Gossip Girl.   

Yasmin, however, is not the first gorgeous woman to be linked with the actor. Just five months prior to this sighting, Thomas was just coming out of a high-profile and long-term relationship with actress Dove Cameron.

Thomas and Dove, 25, dated for almost four years before confirming their split on social media in December last year.

“In October, Thomas and I decided to part ways,” Dove wrote on her Instagram story. “The decision was incredibly difficult, but we still have love for each other, and will remain friends. Thank you for allowing us our privacy in this time.”

The pair met on the set of Disney’s Descendants 2 back in 2016 before confirming they were together in February 2017. While dating, Thomas and Dove would constantly pour their hearts out to each other on their respective social medias, as well as to anyone that would hear. 

In 2019, the Gossip Girl actor gushed to Entertainment Tonight, “She is just the most incredible person I’ve ever met. I think people see her as so talented – because obviously that’s her job to perform and all the rest of it – but she’s the most compassionate and the most patient and the most genuine, loving person I’ve ever met. 

“And so kind and so generous. She’s amazing. She really is. She’s so lovely. She doesn’t have a bad bone in her body.” 

The sentiments were most definitely reciprocated, with Dove once deeming her partner “the love of (her) life”.

“We’re super in love and stuff,” the Powerpuff Girls star told Access Hollywood back in 2017. When asked if she would work with him again in a professional capacity, Dove confessed she didn’t mind either way. “Professional, personal, he’s the love of my life so I’m good not working with him again too.”

Around six months before their break-up, Thomas and Dove moved into a studio together. In April 2020, Dove told People that she and the now-26-year-old were figuring out how to maintain a healthy balance within their relationship throughout the COVID-induced quarantine. 

“Even the healthiest of relationships right now, you need space,” Dove said, “you need your alone time for your own relationship with yourself to flourish, but then also for your romantic relationship. We make sure to go get fresh air and open the doors as much as we can. We’ve been cooking loads.” 

And now, while Thomas looks to be feelin’ all loved up with Yasmin, Dove recently told Access that she’s keeping her love life under wraps for the time being. Fair enough girl, fair enough. Unlike Gossip Girl, we won’t pry. 

XOXO.
