Can you believe it’s been over three years since Selena Gomez ended her relationship with Justin Bieber? The pair called it quits all the way back in late 2012, with Gomez being the one who called things off, which must have been quite a relief for her, given how much she was harassed by Bieber’s young female fan base. The pair were spotted together as early as November 2010, but didn’t publicly confirm they were together until February 2011. But that was all so long ago—a whirlwind few years. With that relationship now in the past, who is Selena Gomez dating now?
We know that evidence emerged showing that Justin Bieber is apparently dating long-time friend Hailey Baldwin, but what about Selena Gomez? She certainly sounds ready to move on, saying in a recent interview, “I’m so exhausted…I honestly am so done. I care about his health and well-being. But I can’t do it anymore.”
That being said, she actually doesn’t appear to be dating anyone at the moment, also being quoted as saying that dating now is “hard and I’m weirded out by the idea that a guy has googled me before we meet, and that has happened.” Still, she hasn’t let that stop her, nor has it kept the rumormongers from stirring the pot a little.
Several men have been linked to Selena Gomez over the past year alone—hell, just the past couple of months! Here are just a few of the (potentially lucky) gentlemen.
• Orlando Bloom: This rumor actually isn’t anything new, having started as early as 2014, when it was suggested that Gomez had hooked up with the Pirates of the Caribbean star as a form of revenge against Justin Bieber following their breakup; it was also rumored after the breakup that Bieber had cheated with Kylie Jenner. They were then spotted together again much later in the year, when the two were seen together at the airport. The rumors returned this year when Gomez and Bloom were seen hanging out at a Super Bowl after-party, but as we all know by now, who Orlando Bloom really hooked up with at that party was not Selena Gomez, but another famous singer: Katy Perry.
• Charlie Puth: Gomez was spotted flirting with the 23-year-old singer/songwriter/producer following the Golden Globe Awards, leading fans to jump at the possibility that the two were an item. However, these rumors were quickly squashed, as a source reveals that nothing came of the evening; they simply hung out for a bit and then moved on with their respective plans.
• Samuel Krost: A New York University grad working in sales and merchandising, Samuel Krost actually isn’t a celebrity; he just knows the right people. While originally just friends, the situations the two are seen together in, which include holding hands and him accompanying her to events, imply that they have moved well past that stage now. What’s more, Gomez’s ex, Justin Bieber, is reported to be jealous of the relationship the two currently share. If that doesn’t suggest that the two are definitely dating, or at least talked about it at some point, we don’t know what does!
• DJ Zedd: Selena Gomez has been most recently linked to DJ Zedd. In fact, she actually admitted last summer that they had a fling, telling a New Zealand radio station, “I adore [Zedd] a lot and I definitely had a thing with him, which was nice.” Although she implied that it was already over, Gomez was pictured kissing Zedd on the cheek in December 2015 after they performed together at New York’s annual Jingle Ball. That being said, the picture reveals little more than the fact that the two musicians are still good friends.
