The Truth About Lana Del Rey And Clayton Johnson

While Lana Del Rey has a voice and aesthetic like no other, the singer also has a history of controversial decisions. In November 2020, she slammed a fan who thought she voted for Donald Trump. In October 2020, Del Rey came under fire for wearing a mesh facemask amid the coronavirus pandemic. While it was stylish, it served absolutely no purpose in protecting others from the virus. And that's not even the half of it. In May 2020, Del Rey posted a controversial message on Instagram, which led to a rift between her and fellow musician Ariana Grande and a massive online brawl, leaving Del Rey with a list of celebrities who can't stand her.

Needless to say, it doesn't seem like 2020 was the singer's year. However, in December 2020, news broke that Del Rey is engaged to Clayton Johnson, per Us Weekly. The happy news came as a slight surprise to fans, considering Del Rey broke up with cop boyfriend Sean "Sticks" Larkin in March 2020, so things obviously moved quickly with Johnson. Here's what we know.

Lana's new man: Los Angeles-based guitarist Clayton Johnson

In mid-December 2020, a source told Us Weekly that Lana Del Rey is officially engaged to Clayton Johnson. The conversation picked up steam after Del Rey sang "Love You Like a Woman" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Dec. 14, 2020, during which people caught a glimpse of a ring on her finger. 

Del Rey and Johnson have been "popping up on each other's social media pages" since August 2020, per Us Weekly, giving fans a glimpse of their time together. A fan account on Twitter posted a photo of the duo on Halloween in 2020, where Del Rey was dressed as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz and Johnson was the Scarecrow. In the shot, there appears to be a ring on that finger.

According to Page Six, Johnson is a guitarist who has made his own musical mark. Johnson is in a band with his brothers fittingly called The Johnsons, and their biggest success thus far is a cover of "FourFiveSeconds" by Rihanna ft. Kanye West and Paul McCartney. Johnson has also worked as a model and appeared in music videos for DNCE and Paris Hilton, according to the outlet. Per his Instagram, Johnson lives in Los Angeles.

Honestly, it sounds like Del Rey and Johnson are a great fit! As of this writing, neither Del Ray nor Johnson have publicly confirmed the engagement.
