Prior to that, the alleged couple was photographed dining at Soho House in Malibu, California on January 12. Dakota and Chris, who have sparked romance rumors for months, were all smiles in each other's company.
An eyewitness said that the pair "arrived together in Chris' car," they later "met up with friends and had a fun night. They both seemed very happy."
During the dinner date, "they were flirty," according to the eyewitness. "They also left the restaurant together," the eyewitness continued saying.

"It's more than just a fling," continued the source. "They have been dating since early October," revealed another source. "[They] spend most nights hanging out at his house and laying low. His friends already love her and see how happy she makes him."
