Who Is Selena Gomez Dating?

Listen, we love a girlie who knows her own mind, and who doesn’t settle for the kind of guy that will keep her down — and Selena Gomez is just that girl. 

She’s been a fan favorite for decades, and while her name has been associated with some top stars, there’s no denying that she’s made it big all on her own. But with a trail of broken hearts and not a few social media scuffles behind her, the question remains — who is Selena Gomez dating now? 

Selena Gomez: Where Is She Now?

Selena has been in the biz since she was just a kid, getting her start on the popular kid’s show Barney from 2002 to 2004. Her real break was a starring role on the Disney Channel series, Wizards of WaverlyPlace, which she played from 2007 to 2012. During that time, Selena started appearing in films, as well, including Another Cinderella Story, Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie, and Ramona and Beezus, based on the books by Beverly Cleary.

After Wizards of Waverly Place, Selena continued to act, with roles in movies like Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and The Dead Don’t Die. She is also a chart-topping musical artist with her former band, Selena Gomez and the Scene, executive television producer of shows like 13 Reasons Why, and Billboard’s Woman of the Year for 2017. 

She currently stars in the mystery-comedy series Only Murders in the Building, streaming on Hulu, and has been a UNICEF ambassador since the age of 17. 

Selena Gomez’s Dating History at a Glance

Of course, we love a little Hollywood gossip, and there’s no denying that Selena has her fair share of paparazzi front pages. Here’s a closer look at some of the men she’s dated over the years. 

Nick Jonas (2008)

It’s little wonder that Nick Jonas and Selena Gomez crossed paths in their early careers. While they didn’t date for long, Selena did appear in his “Burnin’ Up” music video, and she was spotted hanging out with all three Jonas brothers for a time. 

It’s difficult to tell the rumors from the truth, but Selena and Nick were on and off again from 2008 to 2010, during which time she dated some other big names. 

Taylor Lautner (2009)

Take a Twilight-sized time-out! For a short time in 2009, Selena was connected with Taylor Lautner of the Twilight franchise after their paths and friends crossed a few times. It was a short-lived connection that may have just been friendship and may have been something more. 

Justin Bieber (2010 to 2014)

Perhaps the romance Selena is most known for is the one with Justin Bieber, which first began in 2010. While this was the longest of all of their romantic interludes, lasting several years and including a few reconnections, the pair have been on and off again a few times since. 

They started as friends after Bieber announced in an interview that Selena was his celebrity crush, and had a semi-public and often-fraught relationship over the next several years.

In interviews since her last relationship with Bieber came to a close (and since Justin Bieber married Hailey Baldwin in 2018), Selena has spoken about her journey and the clarity that has come after her rollercoaster relationship. It’s a healing process a lot of us can definitely relate to. 

Orlando Bloom (2014)

Yes, that Orlando Bloom. 

While the dalliance may have been blown out of proportion (thanks, gossip hotline) it’s reported that Selena and Orlando were linked for a short time during breaks with their respective partners, Justin Bieber, and Bloom’s partner at the time, model Miranda Kerr. 

Supposedly, the connection was for clout or to make the others jealous, but Selena had another brief interlude with Orlando a few years later. 

Zedd (2015)

Music producer Zedd and Selena started working on a new project in 2015, and not long after, it became apparent they were dating. They traveled together, posted photos, and released a collaboration, but ultimately the relationship lost its luster and the two parted as friends. 

Niall Horan (2015)

Another biggie on the music scene, Niall Horan of One Direction fame, was romantically linked to Selena after years of platonic friendship. While a few not-so-innocent photos were snapped of the two, both maintained that it was just friendship, and nothing more seemed to come from it. 

Samuel Krost (2016)

Samuel Krost is a businessman known best for being the booker for the infamous Fyre Festival. Is that a flex? We’re not so sure. 

There was a little online chatter about the two, and they were briefly seen together a few years later, but posts about the couple from their own accounts are no longer online.

Charlie Puth (2016)

Charlie Puth and Selena collaborated on the song “We Don’t Talk Anymore,” which led to a short romance in 2016. While neither discussed the romance while it was happening, Charlie later admitted that it was definitely messy. Thinking of the Biebs at the time, Selena? 

The Weeknd (2017)

Both Selena and the Weeknd performed at the Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show in 2015, which is where they first met. 

After two years, things between them started to get romantic, and they began traveling together not long after. They debuted their relationship at the Met Gala and eventually went their separate ways a few months later, with Selena calling him one of her “best friends.” 

Justin Bieber (2017 to 2018)

Like we said, things with Justin were Messy — with a capital M. They spent a few months dating following Selena’s breakup, but were already parting ways again by early spring. After that, Justin went on to get married, and Selena wrote the song “Lose You to Love Me,” which was undoubtedly about their breakup. 

Chris Evans (2021)

It was never really confirmed or denied, but hey, would you blame either of them if the rumors were true? Regardless, this dalliance couldn’t have lasted very long. 

Andrea Iervolino (2022)

Another blip on Selena’s dating screen is film producer Andrea Iervolino, who has been romantically linked to Selena in the past. Pictures of the two of them enjoying time in Italy and on yachts have surfaced, but there’s not much else to report on this romantic duo. 

Andrew “Drew” Taggart (2022)

Drew Taggart of the Chainsmokers was a bit of a surprise, based on Selena’s dating history, but the two were seen together doing traditional date things, like going bowling and seeing movies. According to Selena in an interview following the speculations, she was definitely single. 

Zayn Malik (2023)

Another big name in music in Selena’s recent dating history was Zayn Malik, originally from One Direction. The two have been connected in business and friendship since before One Direction hit it big, and this connection was mostly confirmed until early summer 2023, when our girl gave Zayn the internet goodbye and unfollowed his Instagram.

So Who Is Selena Gomez Dating Now?

It can be a little complicated to track the timeline of Selena’s paramours, especially since there are some pretty vindictive queen bees on the gossip hotline. She’s been recently connected to a couple big-name actors, but since we haven’t confirmed the rumors ourselves, we’re not about to spill the tea. 

For now, though, Selena seems to be living her best life after Zayn, footloose and fancy-free. Between her music, her shows, her businesses, and her philanthropy work, when would she even have the time, anyway? 

More On Celebs and Selena 

We love a girl who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go after it, and Selena Gomez is just that girl. While she may be famed for breaking hearts all over Hollywood, the truth is that she offers the world so much more than gossip for the columns. She’s a hot shot in film and TV, a producer, a musical artist, and a good works queen, and we never know what she’s going to do next.

That includes dating! Selena has quite a unique history of hotties in her rearview mirror, some confirmed, and some not, and it’s always interesting to see how relationships unfold on the feed and on the page. In fact, Selena’s been dating some of the “it” guys in music and movies for a long time, and we’re not afraid to say that we’re a little bit jealous.

All that said, Selena seems to be hitting it out of the park all on her own, and she’s doing it with grace and style. Maybe the next Hollywood hottie will be the one for her, or maybe she’ll just keep taking on the world until she finds love. If she’s got a million fans, we’re definitely one of them.
