Powell was romantically linked to model Gigi Paris in January 2020 when the pair were seen enjoying a vacation together in Punta Mita, Mexico.
The two kept their relationship private for nearly a year before Paris shared a sweet picture on Instagram confirming their love on Valentine's Day in 2021. Powell and Paris are pictured nearly kissing in front of a sunset. Paris captioned the post, "Here's to you," tagging Powell's Instagram handle. Powell similarly confirmed their relationship in a Valentine's Day Instagram post for Paris, writing, "My Ride or Die. Happy Valentines Day, y'all!"
Over the course of their relationship, the couple was not shy about hitting the red carpet together and posting snippets of their life on social media. Powell and Paris made their first red carpet appearance in November 2021 when they attended the Guggenheim International Gala together. The pair went to Coachella in April 2022 and attended the "Top Gun: Maverick" movie premiere in May 2022.
By April 2023, however, cracks became apparent in the pair's relationship. When Powell's chemistry with his "Anyone But You" co-star Sweeney sparked buzz on social media among fans who thought the actors might be getting romantic, Paris seemingly tipped the world off to the fact that she and Powell were no longer an item on April 26. She posted a video of herself walking down the street on Instagram with the caption, "Know your worth & onto the next."
The same day, People reported, per sources, that the pair had split amicably, with an insider claiming it was not Powell and Paris's first breakup, as their increasingly busy schedules had taken a toll. "Gigi and Glen had broken up several times," the source said. "They had been on the rocks since 'Top Gun' came out. Gigi was never happy with the long distance filming and when she came to Australia [to visit Powell where he was filming 'Anyone But You'], they both decided to break up for good." A second source told People, "It wasn't about infidelity. She's on different coasts modeling, he's on different coasts filming. When she left [Australia], they were on great terms."
