Dolph Lundgren enjoyed an afternoon out with his fiancée Emma Krokdal in West Hollywood on Friday.

He walked in big black sneakers and silver chains dangled down to the top of his chest.

His gray-blond hair was slicked back out of his face and, though he had sunglasses, they hung limply from his collar. 

Lundgren’s love, 25, showed off her toned tummy in a tiny black crop top, and she added green cargo shorts ending in the middle of her thighs. 

She slung a black leather purse over her shoulder and walked in comfortable white tennis shoes.

The social media influencer tied her dark brown hair into a loose ponytail behind her head. 

Dolph announced his engagement to Emma in an Instagram post on June 29, 2020.

The action star met the fitness expert at the gym Equinox, where she worked, in July 2019.

They began dating in 2019 and went public with their relationship in January 2020 at the Cana Dorada Film & Music Festival in the Dominican Republic.

‘I feel very lucky that I have someone like Emma at this age. It’s changed my life and I hope I can give her the kind of help and support that takes a lot of time to discover and amass,’ he told Muscle and Health about his relationship last year.

While his personal life seems to be going well, the star was recently engaged in a public feud with his former co-star Sylvester Stallone. 

Stallone, 76, took to Instagram last week to react to a report from The Wrap that Robert Lawton was brought on to write the screenplay for Rocky spin-off, that would tell the origins of Ivan Drago, the villainous Soviet boxer from Rocky IV that Lundgren played.

Stallone said he has no involvement in this spin-off, calling Winkler ‘pathetic’ and his sons Charles and David, ‘moronic vulture children.’

He also called out Lundgren, adding, ‘By the way, I once had nothing but respect for Dolph but he NEVER told me about what was going on behind my back with the character I created for him !!! REAL FRIENDS Are more precious than gold.’

Spin-off: Sylvester Stallone is none too happy with Rocky producer Irwin Winkler and his sons, Charles and David, for their involvement in a Rocky spin-off they're making without him, centering on the character Stallone in Rocky IV, Dolph Lundgren's Ivan Drago

Stallone wrote and starred in the first Rocky movie, directed by John G. Alvidsen which went on to a surprising Best Picture win at the Oscars, which Winkler won as a producer.

Stallone would go on to write, direct and star in 1979’s Rocky II, 1982’s Rocky III, 1985’s Rocky IV, 1990’s Rocky V and 2006’s Rocky Balboa.

Dolph was quick to play down tensions, taking to Instagram to tell fans that he was working things out with the Hollywood megastar. 

‘Just to set the record straight regarding a possible Drago spinoff. There’s no approved script, no deals in place, no director and I was personally under the impression that my friend Sly Stallone was involved as a producer or even as an actor,’ Lundgren said. 

‘There was a press leak last week which was unfortunate. In touch with Mr Balboa – just so all the fans can relax…There ya go,’ he concluded.

No plot details were revealed and it’s unclear if Lundgren or Florian Munteanu, who played Ivan Drago’s son Viktor in Creed II, will return in the spin-off.
