Selena Gomez only finished with rehab at the end of December, and she focuses a lot more on her mental well-being now. Taking a page out Demi Lovato’s book and putting her health first is a big step.
But is anyone else besides her close friend supporting her? Is the star dating anyone new, after the slew of guys fans have seen her with?
After her ex, Justin Bieber moved on for good (given his recent marriage to wife Hailey), it’s possible Selena is moving on, too. Who is Selena Gomez dating now? Check it out.
Life Without Justin
Selena Gomez isn’t back with Justin Bieber, although it looked like it last fall for a hot second. Instead, he did some diamond research, proposed to then-girlfriend Hailey Baldwin, and he got hitched in secret in September of this year.
In October of 2017, Selena broke up with boyfriend The Weeknd, who right away unfollowed her and all her close family members on Instagram.
The couple had dated for ten months, amidst many romantic exchanges. The singer, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, even got her a puppy. He also scheduled his tour around her kidney transplant surgery, and the two went to Universal Studios together.
Out for Breakfast
After the big news of their breakup hit, she met up for breakfast with Justin. Selena and Justin hadn’t been in a relationship since 2015, but that didn’t stop the gossip from flying that they might be dating again. The pair went to church together after their meal.
But Selena’s little reunion didn’t work out, and we now know that, at the time, Justin was already secretly married to Hailey. The happy newlyweds had a nice retreat in Canada, where they are always able to get away from the paparazzi more than in the US. They also celebrated her late November birthday.
Some think Selena wanted to make her newest ex, The Weeknd, jealous.
Or she could have only been congratulating Justin on his recent nuptials. Rumors flew that she was thrilled for him to start this new chapter of his life with his bride. It’s hard to get over someone you were with on and off for 8 years, but it’s possible she has done it, with grace and poise.
It takes more grace and poise than average to be sweet to the girl who took your place, even if she writes sweet things about you. Hailey hasn’t ever been anything but nice to Selena, and they have mutual friends. She even dispels rumors in interviews when asked how she feels about the star.
So Who Is Selena Gomez Dating Now?
She’s not with Caleb Stevens, the high schooler someone spotted at the same remote cabin retreat as her with this past summer. They also got spotted in NYC together and another small town in New York, where she was on location for her latest project – a zombie flick with Bill Murray.
The film is now in post-production status and also stars Adam Driver from Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Austin Butler, Selena’s friend and Vanessa Hudgen’s boyfriend. It’s due for release sometime this year, and the comedy, written and directed by Jim Jarmusch, is sure to make big headlines.
Despite the rumors, Selena isn’t dating Noah Centineo, either. Last month at the GQ Men of the Year party, the star gave an interview all about how he would love a date with Selena Gomez. He even hinted he would like to take her overseas.
But while he may have hoped to bait the hook for Selena and see if she had any interest, she’s not biting. The 22-year-old To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before celeb is out of luck.
Selena doesn’t seem interested, because she’s spending time with a hot Italian producer. What?!
The New Boyfriend
Someone spotted Selena Gomez in Rome this summer, with Italian film producer Andrea Iervolino. The young 31-year-old is only five years older than Selena, and with his troubled past, a sweet girlfriend might be the very thing he needs.
Not only did the Italian suffer during his childhood, with an abusive father and trauma from bullying (he had a severe stutter), he also has overcome the rumors surrounding a lawsuit in Los Angeles earlier this year. The producer received accusations of sexual abuse toward Anna Jane Edmonds. The charges were since dropped at Ms. Edmonds’ own request.
Selena toured Rome with Andrea after these allegations came out, and she’s known him for a while. In 2016 she acted in a movie he produced (In Dubious Battle), alongside James Franco. It’s plain she doesn’t believe a word of the rumors, and she won’t let rumors keep her from standing by his side.
Here’s to the New Year
It’s obvious that to Selena Gomez dating is only one of the many things on her mind. Having fun with Andrea is nice, but she knows she doesn’t need a man to continue having fabulous style or rocking her new role in The Dead Don’t Die.
Even rehab couldn’t keep her down. She checked back into a mental health facility in October and completed her stay at the end of December.
The star spends time being mindful and even playing in the snow now that her program has finished. Mental health is a continuous battle, one that Selena appears to be winning for the moment.
