Danny Amendola Seemingly Takes a Shot at Zedd After Reports the DJ Might Be Dating Olivia Culpo
Culpo and Zedd recently sparked romance rumors after they were spotted dancing together at Coachella last weekend
Last weekend, the Russian-German DJ and Olivia Culpo sparked romance rumors after they were spotted getting very close at Coachella.
In a video obtained by TMZ, Zedd, 29, was seen wrapping his arms around the model, 26, as they danced to Ariana Grande‘s “God Is A Woman.”
Just days after their flirty encounter, Amendola, 33, appeared to share his thoughts about Culpo, whom he was last connected to in January, possibly moving on with Zedd — and what better way to do it than with a classic line from Pulp Fiction?
While laying in his bed shirtless, Amendola recorded himself watching the film on his laptop and panned his phone towards the screen as Bruce Willis’ character talked about “Zed’s chopper.”
The NFL player made sure to include Willis’ final line of “Zed’s dead, baby, Zed’s dead” — and his rock hard abs — before cutting off the clip.
It has since been deleted from his Instagram Stories, but was captured by a fan on Twitter beforehand.
Reps for Amendola, Zedd, and Culpo did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
Culpo and Amendola first made their relationship Instagram official in February 2016.
In October 2018, however, a source told PEOPLE that Culpo and Amendola cooled off after the NFL pro was photographed getting close with Miami-based CBS sports journalist Bianca Peters.
“Danny and Olivia did not officially split. Danny is playing both sides,” the insider told us at the time. “He’s saying that the day with Bianca was just him having fun. She’s a reporter, he’s a football player. I think in his mind he got caught so he’s trying to diffuse it.”
The source said that while Culpo was “blindsided” to see the photos of Amendola with Peters, it wasn’t likely she would cut things off completely. “She’ll probably be back in Miami for the next home game.”
“Danny never viewed Olivia as an exclusive girlfriend,” the insider added. “She came to Miami or New England [when he played for the New England Patriots] all of the time and they dated, but it was more her putting in the travel effort than him. Olivia refers to Danny as her boyfriend but he doesn’t refer to her as his girlfriend. He could care less about making it official.”
Days later, Culpo all but declared the relationship over by wearing a brand new men’s Rolex watch on her wrist the same day Amendola was celebrating his 33rd birthday.
“Looks like this is my present now. HAPPY BDAY TO ME,” Culpo wrote over her new piece of jewelry.
A few months later at the end of December, things between the couple appeared to be heating up again.
On New Year’s Eve, the model and Amendola both posted nearly identical video clips of fireworks going off on a beach, leading to speculation that the pair celebrated together and have reconciled.
Despite the speculation, their reconciliation was never confirmed and a rep for Culpo declined PEOPLE’s request for comment at the time.
