Amid the gay rumor, Rocco Ritchie found a girlfriend for him back in 2017. Even though the star kid didn’t make his relationship public, several reputed media outlets, including the Associated Press mentioned that Rocco was dating the then-aspiring singer from North London, Chantelle Lee.
Back then, a close source told the Mirror,
“Rocco and Chantelle have been hanging out a lot, they are part of a big friend group and they have gotten a lot closer in recent weeks. Rocco is smitten and has even introduced Chantelle to his dad. It’s early days though, and he’s managed to avoid an awkward meeting with his mum.”
Rocco was 17 at the time he started dating Chantelle who in turn was just 16 back then. Ritchie had reportedly introduced his then-girlfriend to his filmmaker dad, however, he didn’t introduce her to his mom, at least, initially.
