After all that Hailey Bieber and Selena Gomez drama stirred up again, you may find yourself wondering about the Rare Beauty founder’s current romantic situation—especially since her past relationship with Justin has been put under the microscope yet again. So, is Selena Gomez dating anyone right now? Here’s what we know…

While many fans will of course know that Gomez had a very famous on-and-off again relationship with singer Justin Bieber, her more recent romances may have flown under the radar. The Only Murders in the Building star has actually been linked to a number of famous names—including the Weeknd and a certain star-spangled MCU star (who coincidentally has quite an interesting dating history himself—Chris Evans fans assemble!)

But before we sift through that, we must first tackle a more pressing question—Is Selena actually dating anyone right now, and if so, just who is Selena Gomez’s boyfriend?

Who is Selena Gomez dating?

Despite some speculation in August that Selena was dating producer Andrea Lervolino (opens in new tab) after they were photographed together in Italy on her 30th birthday, Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab) has reported that Selena is single.

A source told the outlet: “Selena isn't dating anyone specific at this time. She is more open to love, but she is also very much focused on herself and her work right now.” They added: “She's in a very healthy place. She is feeling fantastic and very mentally, physically and emotionally healthy.” We love to hear it!

So, while we don’t have any new juicy intel about her current srelationship status, her past beaus are pretty intriguing in and of themselves…

Selena Gomez's dating history:

1. Selena Gomez and Chris Evans (2021)

Perhaps this was more on the wishful thinking side for fans—much like it was when we all hoped Chris and Lizzo were dating—but Selena Gomez and Chris Evans did find themselves embroiled in dating rumors in 2021.

Rumors about these two ignited online after Chris posted an IG video, with fans claiming to spot Selena in the background—sadly, though, to this day the pair have not commented on the rumors or confirmed anything, so we’ll never really know if this could have been a thing. We can continue to dream though…

2. Selena Gomez and The Weeknd (2017)

Following Selena’s relationship with Justin Bieber (which began in 2011), Selena dated The Weeknd, a.k.a. Abel Tesfaye, for ten months in 2017. The pair went Instagram official in January before making their red carpet debut in May of the same year.

Sadly, the pair went their separate ways in October 2017, with a source telling People (opens in new tab): “It's over for now, but they're still in touch.” 

Though this is subject to some discourse, Selena is said to have briefly rekindled her relationship with Justin following her breakup from The Weekend and before Justin reunited with now-wife Hailey Bieber. The Weekend also went on to rekindle his relationship with Bella Hadid.

3. Selena Gomez and Charlie Puth (2016)

In 2016, Selena was linked to singer Charlie Puth after they recorded the duet "We Don’t Talk Anymore" together, though this romance didn’t last long. 

Puth did allude to their relationship in an interview with Billboard (opens in new tab) in 2018, saying it was “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."

4. Selena Gomez and Zedd (2015)

Selena and Zedd confirmed that they had dated for a few months in 2015, though the DJ got candid about their relationship to Billboard (opens in new tab) in 2017, revealing: “People were hacking my friends' phones. I was pissed. I kind of knew what I was getting myself into. She is one of the most talked about people in the world, but I had no idea how much that would change my life."

Ahead of her brief fling with Zedd, Selena reportedly went on a few dates with One Direction's Niall Horan—the pair were also linked again in 2019 before Niall confirmed that he was in fact single. We definitely ship it though!

5. Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber (2011-2015)

Selena’s most famous romantic pairing was, of course, with Justin Bieber.

Dubbed by fans as "Jelena" these two had quite the tumultuous relationship, plus plenty of fan theories around songs that are supposedly written about each other—namely Justin’s "Sorry" and Selena’s "Lose You To Love Me."

When did Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber date?

They were by many accounts each other’s first loves and dated on and off for about four years from 2011 to 2015 (from when Justin was around 17 and Selena was 19.) There were also a number of reports that the pair rekindled things briefly in 2017, before Justin's relationship with Hailey Bieber.

Along with all the rumored songs about each other, Selena also spoke about their relationship in her new documentary My Mind & Me—which has gnarred a big reaction from fans—dubbing their breakup the 'best thing' that ever happened to her.

Selena said: "Everything was so public. I felt haunted by a past relationship that no one wanted to let go of. Then I just moved past it, and I wasn't afraid anymore."

Before adding, "I feel like I had to go through the worst possible heartbreak ever and then just forgetting everything at the drop of the [hat], it was really confusing. But I just think that needed to happen and ultimately it was the best thing that ever happened to me."

Before her very high-profile romance with Justin Bieber, Selena also dated Nick Jonas in 2008, dubbing their relationship "puppy love" before having a brief fling with Twilight’s Taylor Lautner in 2009.

You can see the singer-actress discuss some of her past relationships in the new Selena Gomez documentary, My Mind & Me, streaming on Apple TV+ now!
