When did Casa Amor’s Layla Al-Momani date Conor Maynard and how long for?

Layla revealed before heading into the villa that she dated the famous pop star, revealing: “My ex is a famous singer. He wrote a few songs about me since we broke up.”

It’s unclear how long the pair dated for exactly, but Layla first shared a snap with Conor in July 2021 of her and the star donning fancy dress as she captioned the post: “Date night out of the mansion.”

She then shared another cosy photo with the singer a month later in August 2021, but there are no posts of them after that date.

However, in a heartbreak track shared on TikTok in January, Conor candidly revealed that he went through a breakup at the end of 2022, which some fans have linked to Layla, meaning they may have dated for around 18 months.

He said: “So, the last few months I took a bit of a break from social media because at the end of 2022, I had my heart ripped out. But anyway I took that time to write some music about it, and this is a little bit of one of the songs. It’s called ‘If I Ever’,” before going on to belt out the heartbreak anthem.

It's also unclear how Layla and Conor met, but her name is listed as the Director's Assistant for the music video for his track 'Ain't Got No Friends' which dropped in July 2021, around the same time the Love Islander went public with their romance.
