Alex Martini is an American assistant director who is currently dating actor and singer Bella Thorne. Thorne has made headlines in the past for her sexual orientation. Owing to this, Thorne and Martini's relationship, too, stirred mixed emotions among her fans. While fans are excited to know about the two being together, Thorne's former partners have been posting heart-warming messages on social media for both of them. Even though Martini has an active social-media presence, she does not publish her pictures with Thorne too often. As a set production assistant, she has several TV and film projects to her credit.
Relationship with Bella Thorne
Thorne had previously announced that she was in a polyamorous relationship with both musician Mod Sun and social-media personality Tana Mongeau. They eventually split up. Thorne identified herself as pansexual after she began dating Italian singer Benjamin Mascolo of the pop duo 'Benji & Fede' in April 2019.
Much in line with her previous relationship announcements, Thorne revealed her relationship with Martini in October 2019, through an 'Instagram' post. However, the post was cryptic and led Thorne's fans to wonder who the other girl was, as her face was hidden in the picture. Later, some of her fans identified her as Alex Martini. The passionate 'Instagram' post had the caption "She's the very cute first girl I have dated that's camera shy."
Martini's identity-reveal became easier because of Thorne's ex-partner, Mongeau, who commented "Yes Martini!" on the post. The comment also hinted at Mongeau's approval of the relationship. Apart from Mongeau, Thorne's current male partner, Benjamin Mascolo, too, approved of her relationship with Martini, as he commented ''You girls are so cute."
Thorne and Martini were spotted holding hands and were in high spirits while coming out of the ‘Toronto International Airport.’
According to sources, Thorne has broken up with Mascolo, but the news is not confirmed. Some sources state Thorne is in a relationship with both Mascolo and Martini at the same time.
