Lily-Rose Depp's work alongside The Weeknd in The Idol didn't hit the mark with audiences in France. Nevertheless, the 23-year-old is still adored in the eyes of her latest lover, 070 Shake. The actress confirmed her relationship with the singer via Instagram recently. At the time, she revealed that they've spent the past four months getting to know each other. While they didn't make their red carpet debut during the HBO show's premiere at Cannes this week, Shake was waiting for her partner at LAX upon her arrival back in the US on Thursday (May 25).

As Page Six reports, the creatives shared a passionate kiss as paparazzi cameras snapped away. Depp was casually dressed for her flight, wearing a cropped white tee with no bra underneath and black sweatpants. She attempted to conceal her identity with a pair of sunglasses. Now that she's achieved TV star status, however, it'll be nearly impossible for the blonde beauty to blend in with the crowd. Especially once The Idol makes its world debut in the coming weeks.

As for the "Nice to Have" hitmaker, born Danielle Balbuena, she wore an oversized denim jacket, also sporting her signature curly hair. Even with the scathing reviews slamming the hypersexualization of Depp's pop star character, she seems far more focused on the love unfolding in front of her. According to The Hollywood Reporter, there are hardly any scenes "without the camera showing flashes of [Lily's] breasts or ass."

"You start to wonder if this is building to anything, and by episode two it seems likely that it’s probably not," they further noted. Rolling Stone previously shared similar criticisms of the show, but The Weeknd and his co-star didn't seem bothered by those either.
