The Truth About Bella Hadid's Relationship With Jack Nicholson's Grandson

Bella Hadid seems to have finally moved on following her split from The Weeknd, as Page Six reports that the model has been connected to Jack Nicholson's grandson, Duke Nicholson. An insider told the outlet that Bella and Duke have been dating since September 2020, when they met in New York City. Although there's no mention of him on her social media as of this writing, she reportedly went away with him for her birthday in 2020 ... before she posted about a gals getaway trip on Instagram.

For Bella's 24th birthday celebration, she captioned the pic on her IG grid, "Oh gosh I feel just really lucky ... I usually cancel any kind of big birthday celebration so this year I just wanted to take my beautiful friends on an adventure that was absolutely non-refundable." But according to Page Six, that was her second "big birthday celebration." Sneaky, right? 

Granted, if anyone deserves to be super private about their lives, it's Bella, as she spent the past few years with her name in headlines while the public speculated about her on and off (and on and off and on)-again relationship with The Weeknd. It's about time for something new. And that's where Duke comes in.

Duke Nicholson is an actor

Bella Hadid's supposed beau, Duke Nicholson, is the grandson of actor Jack Nicholson, but he's also making a name for himself in Hollywood. You might recognize him from Jordan Peele's Us, or from the cover of Lana Del Rey's album Norman F–cking Rockwell! Per IMDb, he's also nabbed a starring role in a movie called Dreamland with Armie Hammer and Evangeline Lilly. 

The onscreen performer was born Duke Norfleet, according to IMDb, but his mother, Jennifer Nicholson, divorced his father, Mark Norfleet, in 2003, and at some point, Duke obviously decided to use his mother's maiden name. It also can't hurt when trying to get a callback for movie roles, though, either.

Duke's mom, Jennifer, is Jack Nicholson's eldest daughter, whom he had with his first and only wife, Sandra Knight, in 1963. He has four other children, Caleb (with Susan Anspach) and Honey (with Winnie Hollman), as well as Lorraine and Raymond (with Rebecca Broussard). Funny enough, Duke is close in age to his aunt Lorraine and uncle Raymond, per The Hollywood Reporter, who are also in showbiz. Duke told the outlet that they usually spend Thanksgiving together at his grandfather's Mulholland Drive compound. 

If things go well between Duke and Bella — who's the daughter of Yolanda and Mohamed Hadid and the sister of Gigi Hadid (who had a baby with Zayn Malik) and Anwar Hadid (who's dating Dua Lipa) — their holidays are bound to be star-studded.
