Dunk in love! Ansel Elgort only has eyes for his ballerina girlfriend Violetta Komyshan as the couple lock lips while sitting courtside at basketball game
They immediately fell for each other when they met as students at New York City's famed Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School.
And it was clear that Ansel Elgort, 23, and his ballerina girlfriend Violetta Komyshan, 21, still only had eyes for each other when they attended a basketball game at the Big Apple's Madison Square Garden on Thursday evening.
As the lovebirds sat courtside, they were spotted staring into each other's eyes before leaning in for a passionate kiss, seemingly unaware of the high octane showdown between the New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics.

The couple even appeared to be in sartorial sync, with Baby Driver star Aaron wearing a burgundy sweater, while Violetta cut a stylish figure in a maroon minidress, which she teamed with a pair of black suede thigh-high boots.
Joined by pals, they later turned their attention to the game, watching as host team the New York Knicks romped home with a 102-93 victory over the visitors.
Brunette beauty Violetta recently opened up to Cosmopolitan about when she first met handsome Ansel, saying: 'I think he had his eye on me, because we were in the same lunch period or something.

'[One day freshman year] I was with my friend, and he was walking down the block. I didn't even know he went to my school—I just thought he was really attractive.'
Luckily, a friend of Violetta's was there to tell her more about the mysterious stranger.
'I looked at him and told my friend, "Oh my God, that guy's so hot," and she's like, "Oh that's Ansel, he goes to LaGuardia,"' Violetta added. 'Then he walked up to us and said, "What's good?" and [mimes a fist bump]. I thought he liked her!'

Although she was originally convinced Ansel was on his way to developing a crush on her friend, the actor's behaviour made it clear he was in fact interested in getting to know Violetta better.
'He waited for me [after school] the next day and told our friend to introduce us and I was like, "OK, he totally liked me yesterday,"' the ballerina said.
'Then I made her come with us to Starbucks. We exchanged numbers and became friends, and then we started dating when I was at the end of sophomore year.'

Violetta and Ansel regularly share pictures of themselves together on social media, sometimes exchanging loving messages on their own platforms.
Last month, Ansel posted a couple of photos of his girlfriend, pointing out in the caption that he's been 'obsessed with her since high school'. The post remains one of Violetta's favorites.
'I was like, "Awww." Which is true, we've been together like six years!' she said.
Origin story: Ansel and Violetta's romance began when Violetta spotted the budding actor and noticed his good looks while they were high school students in New York
