Who Is Florence’s boyfriend?

The 24-year-old actress is in a relationship with 44-year-old Zach Braff.

Zach has been in the industry since the 1990s, but it wasn’t until 2001 that he became widely known for his role as J.D. on the TV series Scrubs. He also produced and directed several episodes of the medical comedy-drama, which aired until 2010.

He received several awards and nominations for his work as a director and scored a Grammy Award for Best Soundtrack Album in 2005.

Zach and Florence are keeping a low-key relationship

Neither Zach nor Florence has confirmed their relationship status, but based on the photos, it’s obvious that they are a couple.

The two have been keeping their relationship low-key. While they have been pictured publicly looking loved up, they have yet to make their relationship red carpet official.

In December, they both attended the premiere of Little Women, but they walked the red carpet separately.

Just recently, Florence walked the 2020 BAFTA red carpet in London, and Zach was nowhere to be found.

The actress wore a bold fuchsia Dries Van Noten Spring 2020 tiered parachute cape dress, which was tied with black velvet ribbons down the front. She layered the striking number over a black mini dress that put her legs on display.

She paired the look with a diamond necklace, diamond earrings, and Jimmy Choo platform sandals.

Florence defends Zach from a basher

Many are criticizing her relationship with Zach, given their 21-year age gap.

In one photo posted by Florence last December, for instance, Zach commented with a princess emoji. One of her followers then pointed out their huge age difference, saying: “you’re 44 years old,” in response to Zach’s emoji.
