According to Miami Herald, the singer and the Miami Heat player were spotted grabbing an intimate dinner recently. A source told E! News, however, that the pair has hung out “a few times,” but that Gomez is keeping her options open.”
“[She] has been on a few dates with Jimmy and thinks he’s a great guy. They hung out a few times while Selena was in New York City. Jimmy asked her to go to dinner and they had a great time,” the insider explained. “It’s very casual and she’s open to seeing where things go, but isn’t settling down just yet.”
They added that the “Rare” songstress “is currently single but has recently been more open to dating.” Well, we can’t wait to see where this goes! But wait, who has Gomez dated in the past, you ask? It turns out, she has been linked to some of Hollywood’s biggest stars over the years, including Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Niall Horan, Charlie Puth, Taylor Lautner, Nick Jonas and more. We decided to break down each and every one of her relationships for you, and boy, has her love life been a rollercoaster ride! Here’s everything Gomez has ever dated and what went down between them…
Selena Gomez’s First Boyfriend Was Nick Jonas
The 28-year-old was briefly linked to the Jonas Brothers member in 2008. Fans first started to speculate that something was going on between them after she made an appearance in the music video for his song “Burning Up.” But they split a few months later.
During their time as a couple, they kept things pretty under wraps, but after the relationship came to an end, Gomez explained that it felt like she was in a love triangle between herself, Jonas and Miley Cyrus (who he started dating soon after things ended between him and Gomez).
“[Me and Miley] never feuded. We both liked the same guy when we were 16. It was just a Hilary Duff–Lindsay Lohan thing, like, ‘Oh, my God, we like the same boy!’” she said.
Where do they stand now, you ask? Well, in 2015, Gomez reminisced about dating Jonas to Capital FM. She explained, “We were babies! We actually caught up the other day and it’s really fun to be able to do that. That, to me, was like puppy love. It was very sweet. He’s lovely. I do have a love for him for sure.”
Then, Selena Gomez Was Linked To Taylor Lautner
Gomez and Lautner met while they were both working on movies in Vancouver, Canada. He was filming the second Twilight flick, New Moon, while she was making the movie Ramona and Beezus. But when filming wrapped, they went their separate ways.
“He’s a great guy. But I am 100 percent single, and I’m going to keep it that way for a while,” the Wizards of Waverly Place alum told Seventeen Magazine in September 2009. “Kristen [Stewart] was staying in my hotel. He would visit her, so we were constantly running into each other in the lobby — and we ended up meeting. We would go out to lunch and dinner, but I knew he had paparazzi following him and I had paparazzi following me. So we literally just wanted to hang out, go bowling and stuff, and it went a little too far, I think. People were getting a little crazy about us. But it was fun. I went to Vancouver thinking I was going to focus on my work, but instead I got to meet him, and it ended up being the best thing ever. He is so sweet. Taylor has made me so happy. I didn’t know I could be that happy. You probably see it in the pictures! I’m smiling so big.”
There Were Rumors That Selena Gomez Dated Cameron Quiseng
When the band Allstar Weekend opened up for Gomez on her Selena Gomez & the Scene: Live in Concert Tour, many fans started to wonder if she was dating member Cameron Quiseng. At the time, they were spotted hanging out a few times, and they were even caught on a romantic bowling date! It’s still unclear what exactly went down between them, but they were seriously so cute together!
After That, Selena Gomez Entered Into A Relationship With Zedd
Rumors started to spread that Gomez and Zedd were in a relationship after they collaborated on the song “I Want You To Know.” At the time, however, some people started to speculate that they were pretending to date so that the track would get more attention. But the former Disney star later shut these rumors down to The Edge Afternoons.
“I adore Anton [Zedd] a lot and I definitely had a thing with him, which was nice,” she said.
The DJ also opened up about the relationship to Billboard Magazine.
“Reporters were calling my parents. People were hacking my friends’ phones. I was pissed. [Though] I kind of knew what I was getting myself into,” he said. “She is one of the most talked about people in the world, but I had no idea how much that would change my life.”
Next Up Came The Niall Horan Rumors
The entire internet was shook when Gomez and Horan were reportedly spotted kissing at Jenna Dewan‘s birthday party in December 2015.
“Niall and Selena were seen kissing in the middle of the club, in front of everyone,” an eyewitness told Us Weekly. “They definitely seemed very close and like they were together. Niall got there first with his bodyguard, then the next thing I know, I looked over and Selena was there. They were very close together, talking and whispering. They left together, she grabbed his arm on the way out and held onto it.”
After that, they hung out a lot, and get this — the actress even flew all the way to London to watch Horan and his One Direction bandmates perform at The X Factor! But while chatting with Entertainment Tonight a few weeks later, Gomez insisted that they were only friends.
“Oh my god! No,” she said, when asked if they were dating. “I love him, I always have. He’s amazing.”
Things didn’t end there for them! In October 2019, fans started to wonder if they had reconciled, after Gomez was photographed entering his house. But once again, they shut the rumors down.
“We have the same group of friends. We hang out all the time,” Horan explained. “It just happens that that one photo was posted. We’re good friends.”
The “Slow Hands” crooner also told Entertainment Tonight, “People are fickle. Aren’t they? They don’t know whether they want us to date or go on a song together. I mean that would be great. She’s obviously a talented girl. And she’s a really good friend of mine.”
Selena Gomez Couldn’t Keep Her Hands Off Samuel Krost In 2016
Gomez and an NYU student named Samuel Krost dated in 2016. At the time, photographers caught them holding hands and getting cozy, and they even jetted off to Costa Rica together! They stayed pretty tight-lipped about it while they were together, but after they split, Krost wrote on Instagram, “Selena is a real girl with a real heart and real feelings. All you superficial who are just unhappy with your love lives, understand that love is real. Although we have ventured on separate paths, at least I know that love exists. I love you, Sel.”
Things seem to be all good between them now, since they were spotted getting dinner together in October 2019. Naturally, when fans saw that they had reunited they started to wonder if they were back together, but Gomez insisted they were only friends.
“I am not dating anyone. I’ve been single for two years. I’m on God’s timing, not mine,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories at the time.
Then, Selena Gomez And Orlando Bloom Were Caught Getting Cozy
Many people were left confused when photos of Gomez and Orlando Bloom getting cozy at her Revival Tour launch party hit the web. Especially since he was dating Katy Perry at the time! The singer seemingly addressed the speculation online, writing on Twitter at the time, “Instead of giving energy and eyeballs to dumb conspiracy, check out how cool this is,” alongside a video of Bloom’s charity work.
Gomez even liked the tweet, so it seemed like things were all good between her and Perry.
Selena Gomez Briefly Dated Charlie Puth
After teaming up for their song “We Don’t Talk Anymore,” Puth and Gomez had a brief fling. The pop star later opened up about it to Billboard while discussing his song “Attention” (which is about Gomez!), and he explained that despite it being short-lived, their romance had a huge impact on him.
“[‘Attention’ is] about a particular moment in my life, when someone very close to me wanted the attention of somebody else. When I found that out and we ended it, I might have done some shady things too, and she might have asked me, ‘How long has this been going on?’” he said. “I don’t kiss and tell, but the only way a song like that can come across as real is if there’s something else going on behind the scenes. And that’s what was happening [with Gomez]. Very short-lived, very small, but very impactful. And it really messed me up. I’m trying to put this the best way possible: It wasn’t like I was the only person on her mind. And I think I knew that going in — what I was getting myself into.”
After That, Selena Gomez Entered Into A Relationship With The Weeknd
Gomez and The Weeknd first sparked dating rumors in January 2017, when they were spotted kissing. The two stars went Instagram official a few months later and they made their red carpet debut at the Met Gala in May. After that, they quickly became couple goals. They constantly shared adorable pictures together, walked red carpet events side-by-side, packed on the PDA all over the world, gushed over each other online and supported each other’s work.
The relationship lasted for 10 months before they split in October 2017. And although a source told People Magazine that their busy schedules was to blame, many people thought Bieber was the one to break them up. Yep, just days before the news that their relationship had ended hit the web, Gomez was spotted hanging out with the “Love Yourself” artist, leading tons of fans to wonder if he was the reason they ended things.
Selena Gomez And Justin Bieber Were On And Off For 10 Years
The two stars first met in 2009, after Bieber’s manager reached out to Gomez and set them up. But it wasn’t until one year later, when they were spotted cuddling up at an iHop, that rumors started to swirl that they were dating. At the time, however, the musician quickly shut down the speculation, telling MTV, “Who doesn’t like pancakes? We were both performing in the same place so we went and had pancakes together. That’s all it is. All innocent. I love Justin. When he first started to come over from Canada his manager contacted me and he just said that he would like to meet me and he was just such a good kid… I feel like a big sister now, ’cause I want to protect him.”
It’s unclear when they officially became more than friends, but in January 2011, fans got the confirmation that they were waiting for. Yep, the brunette beauty and the pop star were photographed kissing on vacation in St. Lucia together, and there was no denying that they were a couple. And one month later, they made their relationship red carpet official, when they attended the Vanity Fair Oscars party side by side.
The two stars were practically inseparable after that, and they seemed like total couple goals! That is, until November 2012, when news hit the web that they had split.
“She broke up with him,” an insider told People Magazine at the time. “With them being apart so much it got complicated. She had some trust issues. It’s not easy, but the relationship needed to end.”
After that, rumors started to swirl that Bieber had cheated on Gomez when photos of him and model Barbara Palvin cozying up together at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show hit the web. To make matters worse, Gomez posted one of the pics to her own Twitter account, and captioned it “…….”
But the relationship didn’t end there. Fans quickly went into a frenzy in April 2013 when Bieber posted a snap of him and Gomez to his Instagram account. And a few days later, they were spotted kissing in Norway, so it appeared that they were going strong again.
Throughout the rest of 2013 and a lot of 2014, they were caught hanging out all the time, and get this — they even shared numerous pics together. But everyone was left pretty confused about their relationship status when Bieber claimed in numerous interviews that he was single, despite the fact that him and Gomez were spending a lot of time together. Well, whatever was going on between them came to an end in December 2014, when the 26-year-old started dating his future-wife, Hailey Baldwin. Gomez appeared to move on as well, since she entered into a relationship with Zedd.
Then in 2017, they reunited again (right before her split with The Weeknd).
“Justin is still very happy. They have had quiet date nights at home and outings to local, low-key spots. They are still catching up and just enjoy hanging out,” a source explained to People Magazine at the time. “They have learned from past mistakes and are not putting any pressure on each other. Things are much different and more mature.”
In the weeks that followed, they were photographed riding bikes together, going out to dinner and they even went to Jamaica together! Then, in March 2018, Gomez posted a tribute for her beau in honor of his birthday, writing, “March 1, 1994, someone I know that happens to be super cool was born. Boom.”
But one month later, there was trouble in paradise, when E! News reported that they had split once again. A few months later, Bieber started dating Baldwin again, seemingly ending #Jelena once and for all.
