Luke Hemmings is going steady with his girlfriend, Arzaylea. It looks like the rest of his 5SOS bandmates, including single boys Ashton Irwin and Calum Hood, have accepted his relationship, but the fans are more reluctant to greet the good news with open arms.
With the 5SOS world tour done until next February, Luke Hemmings has been clocking in some quality couple time with Arzaylea and hitting up all the cool spots in Los Angeles.
“Luke Hemmings appears to be enjoying his downtime in Los Angeles, where he stepped out with his stylish girlfriend Arzaylea on Monday night,” reports the Daily Mail. “The 20-year-old singer opted to show off his cool-guy style wearing an over-sized khaki T-shirt while leading the way into The Nice Guy in West Hollywood.”
The fact that the two of them are not being super wary of being seen together means that they are ready to make their romance public.
In fact, this isn’t the first time that they have been spotted together. All throughout 5SOS’ North American tour, Arzaylea was seen attending shows and showing up at the hotels Luke stayed in. She also accompanied him to Paris and other European cities when the band performed there.
She even followed him to Sydney, Australia, when the 5SOS members took a short break between tour locations in their home country. She uploaded a picture of her holding a koala, and Luke posted a very similar picture on his Instagram, tagging the same conservatory as his girlfriend.
Now that they are back on the West Coast, they are not holding back in showing their fans that they want to be together.
“The romance between 5 Seconds Of Summer’s frontman Luke Hemmings and Arzaylea is clearly still going strong,” reports the Daily Mail. “On Friday the pair stepped out together in West Hollywood wearing similar casual ensembles and clutching onto water bottles. The 20-year-old singer strode in front of his girlfriend protectively as they strolled along the quiet street together.”

Arzaylea has faced some hardship from 5SOS’ fans before. She experienced serious cyber bullying and was called names and hated upon for no reason.
“[Luke’s fans] want me to be this really horrible person,” Arzaylea said in an interview with Vice. “But I’m not. I’m just a really normal girl who just happens to date someone not so normal.”
“I think all of it is kind of a game,” she added. “And when people take a game too seriously, it turns into something way more than it needs to be.”
It was so severe that 5SOS guitarist had to step in to mediate.
“[T]he 5SOS frontman has made it abundantly clear that he’s tired of the negativity surrounding his relationship, allegedly messaging a fan and telling her to knock off the hate and later tweeting about how ‘people need to relax,'” reports Bustle. “Simply put: Luke Hemmings is tired of fans hating on his relationship with Arzaylea, and he is speaking out about it.”
But that’s the kind of drama he should expect if he wants to go steady with a girlfriend. On the other hand, other 5SOS members are being smart and choosing not to link themselves to girls.
Instead of hanging out with a romantic partner, Ashton Irwin and Calum Hood are spending time with each other, going on vacations and taking exotic hikes. They even post about it on Instagram together!
Talk about some serious bromance between 5SOS members.
It hasn’t been long since Ashton broke things off with his model girlfriend, Bryana Holly.
“But 5 Seconds of Summer drummer Ashton Irwin has now confirmed he is single following his split from bikini model Bryana Holly,” reports the Daily Mail. “The 21-year-old told Rove & Sam for breakfast on Hit 104.1 2DayFM on Friday: ‘I don’t have a girlfriend anymore.'”
Looks like he is living his single life to the fullest!
