Is Selena Gomez dating anyone? While romance rumors have been swirling around the Rare Beauty mogul and The Chainsmokers' Drew Taggart, Selena just shared a very telling update on TikTok...
While most fans will know that Selena had a very famous on-and-off again relationship with Justin Bieber—a contributing factor to all the recent Selena Gomez, Hailey Bieber and Kylie Jenner drama—some of her more recent romances have flown a bit more under the radar.
The Only Murders in the Building star has actually been linked to a number of famous names in the past, including The Weeknd and a certain star-spangled MCU star, as well as some Selena Gomez boyfriend rumors that popped up throughout the summer of 2022, where she was linked to filmmaker Andrea Iervolino after their Italian getaway. More recently though, fans began theorizing that the Rare singer was actually dating a certain electronic musician after the pair were pictured walking hand-in-hand.
However, after Selena's latest TikTok, we might have all been well off the mark with that one too. It's safe to say, there's a lot to digest, so before we sift through her past loves, allow us to first tackle a more pressing question: who is Selena Gomez dating now if anyone at all?
Is Selena Gomez dating anyone?
Who is Selena Gomez dating? As with most celebrities—like Dua Lipa's dating situation, or Meghann Fahy's dating life—romance rumors tend to spring up all over the place when it comes to pop star Selena.
While there is no Selena Gomez husband right now, the latest murmurings have linked the Rare Beauty mogul to The Chainsmokers frontman, Andrew Taggart, after they were spotted looking rather chummy while bowling in New York City.
However, on March 15, 2023, Selena seemingly debunked these rumors, taking to TikTok to lipsync the sound: "I hate it when girls are like, ‘Oh my gosh, my crush doesn’t even know that I exist.’ Girl, my crush doesn’t even exist." She also accompanied the video with a caption that read: "Still out here looking for him lol."

Now, she might just have been mouthing this audio for fun, but it could also be the singer's way of hinting that she is currently single—we're inclined to think the latter because of her caption...
Selena Gomez and Drew Taggart
So, while Selena continues to throw us off the scent, where did these Selena Gomez Drew Taggart rumors come from in the first place?
Well, in January 2023, it was reported by US Weekly (opens in new tab) that Selena Gomez and Drew Taggart from The Chainsmokers were spending time together, going on cute bowling and movie dates. The source added: "They aren’t trying to hide their romance by sneaking around at members-only clubs,” though they're keeping their relationship "very casual and low-key.”
The source also revealed that Selena is very "affectionate" with Drew, before claiming: "Selena can hardly keep her hands off him."
However, Gomez soon put the romance rumors to rest in a now-deleted Instagram story. She posted a black-and-white image of a mountain that said "I like being alone too much." She then followed it up with a hashtag, #iamsingle—so perhaps things aren't romantic between them, or they've already cooled off?
We can't keep up, because just a few days after her Insta post, Drew and Selena were pictured by TMZ (opens in new tab) holding hands in NYC.
Then, on March 15, 2023, Selena confused fans even further by posting a TikTok, where she lipsynced to the sound: "I hate it when girls are like, ‘Oh my gosh, my crush doesn’t even know that I exist.’ Girl, my crush doesn’t even exist"—which many have taken as confirmation that she's currently single.
It's quite the modern-day mystery—perhaps she and Drew are just keeping things casual? Maybe they're close platonic friends? Or maybe they were never an item to begin with? Your guess is as good as ours, we just hope our gal is happy!

Selena Gomez and Brad Peltz
Before those Drew Taggart rumors, fans linked Selena to Nicola Peltz's older brother, 33-year-old Brad Peltz, after they were spotted in the same room together in one of Nicola's TikTok videos in November 2022.
Alas, it looks as though they were simply just hanging out, as viral celeb gossip account, Deuxmoix seemingly rebuffed the claims. The anonymous account replied in a Q&A (posted on Instagram Stories) saying: "I heard they are not together, but that was from someone who knew Bradley and said he wouldn't be her type, so it's just conjecture. But that person presented a pretty convincing argument." Seems like this one is a no-go!
Selena Gomez's dating history:
1. Selena Gomez and Andrea Lervolino (2022)
In August 2022, Selena was thought to be dating producer Andrea Lervolino after they were photographed together in Italy, celebrating her 30th birthday—before Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab) then reported that Selena was in fact, 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.”
So what about any other past beaus?
2. Selena Gomez and Chris Evans (2021)
Perhaps this rumored romance was more wishful thinking from 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. Discussion 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. And, the Avengers star has made it *very* clear that he is now in a happy, committed and seemingly super serious relationship with Alba Baptista. Jealous? Us? Never...
3. 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 Weeknd, and before Justin reunited with now-wife Hailey Bieber. The Weeknd also went on to rekindle his relationship with Bella Hadid, before splitting again in 2019.
4. 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."
It's not clear how long the pair were together, but it seems their romance had a lasting effect!
5. 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!
6. 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 his now-wife, 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 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 Selena Gomez documentary, My Mind & Me, streaming on Apple TV+ now!
