Selena Gomez Boyfriends: Past and Present
Selena has had a rather dramatic long-on-and-off relationship with singer Justin Bieber. The duo finally parted ways in 2014 but was spotted together on different occasions in 2015 and 2016, fueling rumors about a rekindled relationship, however, the duo initially denied there was anything more between them, but it appears they are on the verge of getting back together.
Following the rocky relationship Selena told W Magazine she was exhausted talking about Biebs and although she still cares about his well being and health, she is so done relationship-wise, but Bieber wasn’t having any of that even with Selena having her own fair share of flings with stars like Charlie Puth, Orlando Bloom and Samuel Krost, it only seemed to fuel Bieber’s determination on getting her back and his efforts according to reports seem to be paying off.
According to Hollywood Life, Justin invited Selena to attend his LA Concert held in March 2016 and she did, but it didn’t stop there, the pair have also been spotted alone on different occasions in a hotel. What’s more? Bieber on 20th March 2016 posted a throwback photo of him and Selena kissing while on one of their vacations and captioned it “feels”, Selena posted a comment saying “Perfect”. So maybe, just maybe Jelena could be back again. The drama seems to be far from over.
Apart from Bieber, Selena has had relationships with the likes of actor Taylor Lautner, and fellow Disney star Nick Jonas which were before she began dating Bieber in 2010. While it is unclear who Selena is currently with, many fans have their fingers crossed it will be Bieber AGAIN and all the way. Guess we’ll have to wait and see what the future holds for this duo.
