AceShowbiz - The coronavirus lockdown saved Charli XCX and Huck Kwong's romance.
The pop star admits that time apart was testing the couple's relationship and she and her boyfriend were close to splitting before they were forced to self-isolate together due to the coronavirus pandemic - and now they are closer than ever.
Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music on Tuesday, May 12, 2020, Charli said, "We were, I'm not going to say, like, at the end of the road, but close to it. We were living on separate sides of the country and even though we were physically far apart, we were emotionally quite distant as well."
"And this time period, I'm extremely lucky that it has brought us physically close together, because now we're living in the same house but also emotionally, and I finally understand that this person is somebody who I can trust with my life and I will have my security and protection at the front point of their heart no matter what."
She added, "If you'd have told me that two months ago, 'You're going to spend 60 days solid with this person who you're in a relationship with', I would have been like, 'Are you joking? I don't think that's possible'. But actually it's been really great and I think it's, like, proven to me that sometimes in life you just have to throw yourself into something without thinking about... what might happen, what could go wrong."
