Mollie King has dated –
- Andy Brown (2010-2011) – Mollie officially started dating the musician and the lead vocalist of English pop band Lawson, Andy Brown in January 2010. However, they were reported to have been dating for around two years by the time they made their relationship public. The couple didn’t survive long under the spotlight as they decided to go their separate ways in February 2011. In his later interview, Brown alleged that she had outgrown him (due to her fame) and seemed to have gotten bored of him. Meanwhile, he used his broken heart to pen singles – When She Was Mine and Standing in the Dark.
- David Gandy (2011-2012 and 2014-2016) – Mollie started going out with model David Gandy in April 2011. However, their relationship lasted merely 10 months as they broke up in February 2012. He revealed that he was too focused on his career to have a stable relationship. He also revealed his obsession for perfection proved to be their undoing. They got back together again in the autumn of 2014. However, their relationship didn’t last long the second time around as well. At the start of January, the rumors of their breakup started swirling around after he was pictured with an unidentified woman. Their breakup was officially confirmed by the end of the month. It was reported that Mollie was pushing him to settle down and commit towards their relationship, which David clearly wasn’t prepared to do.
- Prince Harry (2012) – In April 2012, the leading English tabloids reported that Mollie was going out with Prince Harry. They had been set up by his cousin Zara Phillips, who knew Mollie through her bandmate Una Headley. They had decided to keep their relationship a secret in order to escape media scrutiny, which they believed wouldn’t give their relationship enough room to thrive. However, it didn’t work out for them in the end.
- Stuart Broad (2012) – Mollie was rumored to be going out with cricketer Stuart Broad in July 2012. It was reported that they had first started following each other on Twitter and later started interacting through private messages. After months of speculation about their relationship, they finally went on an official date in December as he took her to the Austrian-themed restaurant, Bodo’s Schloss, in Kensington, London.
- Jordan Omley (2013-2014) – King started going out with the American music producer Jordan Omley in the early months of 2013.
