Selena Gomez is one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelorettes, so every time she’s spotted with a sexy single guy, dating rumors are going to fly. Most recently, Selena has been linked to actor Orlando Bloom, singer Charlie Puth, and sales exec Samuel Krost. But is she actually hooking up with any of the potential love matches on this list?
According to E! News, 23-year-old Selena Gomez dropped a big hint about just how close she and 39-year-old Orlando Bloom are when she revealed the cutesy nickname that she has for the Lord of the Rings star. Selena recently helped the actor celebrate his birthday by sharing sweet message for “Orly” on social media.
“Happy bday Orly,” she wrote in a January 14 Instagram post, “celebrate kindness and who you are.”
According to Hollywood Life, Selena also attended Orlando Bloom’s January 13 birthday party, where she was photographed getting pretty cozy with the actor. People reports that Selena and Orlando first met through the other woman in the photo below, their shared manager, Aleen Keshishian.
Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom have something in common besides the same manager: Justin Bieber has caused both of them a lot of grief. Gomez survived one roller coaster ride of an on-again, off-again relationship with Bieber, and Bloom got once into a fight with the troubled pop star. According to PageSix, Orlando Bloom threw a punch at Justin Bieber after encountering him at an Ibiza nightclub in July of 2014. Bloom was possibly upset with Bieber for flirting with his ex-wife, Miranda Kerr, at the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
During an interview with InStyle UK, Selena Gomez hinted that she’s not interested in reuniting with Justin Bieber again by saying that she would love to date older guys. However, it looks like Orlando isn’t the older man for her – sources told E! News that Selena and the actor are currently just friends. There are also reports that Orlando Bloom was acting very much like a single man at a Golden Globes afterparty on January 10. He reportedly got cozy with Katy Perry by dancing with the pop star, and even sharing a vape pen with her.
While Katy Perry was testing the waters with the Pirates of the Caribbean star, Selena Gomez was busy doing a little post-Golden Globes flirting of her own. According to Seventeen, she and fellow singer Charlie Puth hung out after the awards show, and they sparked dating rumors by appearing together in one of Charlie’s Snapchat videos. However, all that flirting was likely just a ploy to get a little free publicity for their new song, “We Don’t Talk Anymore” – Selena later told E! News that she and Charlie are not dating.
The third guy who Selena Gomez has been linked to isn’t a celebrity like Orlando Bloom and Charlie Puth – he’s a sales executive named Samuel Krost. Celebuzz reports that Samuel and Selena were spotted holding hands at the 1OAK nightclub in Los Angeles on January 14.
“She was all over him,” a source revealed. “She wasn’t paying attention to anyone else but him.”
According to the Daily Mail, Selena Gomez and Samuel Krost were also spotted in Malibu on Friday night. They were photographed leaving a restaurant together, but Selena and her dinner date didn’t look like lovebirds while they were waiting for a car to pick them up – photos show the pair completely ignoring each other because they’re too busy checking their phones. However, Samuel still seems like the most likely candidate for the new man in Selena’s life. According to Hollywood Life, Samuel and Selena were also spotted “packing on the PDA” during a November 9 outing in NYC. Samuel Krost is a sales and merchandising executive at Onia, who is no stranger to spending time with gorgeous celebrities – he’s reportedly good pals with model Gigi Hadid.
Do you think Selena Gomez is better off being in a relationship with a non-celebrity like Samuel Krost, or are you sad that she’s not dating Orlando Bloom or Charlie Puth?
