Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom were spotted getting touchy feely with each other in Las Vegas last week. The rumor mill has now gone into overdrive. Look away, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry.
Pals Selena and Orlando’s possibly steamy session was captured on CCTV at the Light nightclub in Mandalay Bay, which is where the pop starlet held her after-party after kicking off her Revival Tour in Vegas on Friday, May 6.
TMZ obtained pictures. Take a look below.

According to the celebrity gossip site, Orlando Bloom was an unexpected turn-up at Gomez’s party. Sources told TMZ that “things got very ‘touchy feely’ quickly before 23-year-old Selena and 39-year-old Orlando started neck-nuzzling and embracing in a booth. However, we’re told Selena absolutely went back to her room alone.” The site claims witnesses said the pair were “all over each other.”
Naturally, questions are being asked. First, where does Katy Perry fit into all of this? Second, if this is the start of a new glamour coupling, why would a beauty like Selena go from Bieber — a young, super-successful superstar and Calvin Klein model — to an ageing and reportedly already-taken actor who is rarely seen on-screen without tights?
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Perry and Bloom having been dating for a few months. They were last spotted together at a Met Gala after-party last week. On the night that Selena and Orlando were allegedly seen getting up close and personal in Sin City, Katy was at a Renaissance Festival in California.
This isn’t the first time romance rumors about Selena and Orlando have popped up. The pair, who have the same manager, were papped in April, 2014, sitting outside during an interval at a Chelsea Handler show in Los Angeles. Since then, both have hung out as friends and have flown out to a WE DAY conference together in the past.
Into the mix, Bieber and Bloom came to almost-fisticuffs in Ibiza back in 2014, seemingly over Orlando’s belief that the Canadian singer and the Brit’s ex-wife, Miranda Kerr, flirted or hooked up years ago.
Miranda has since posed for photo-ops with Selena at fashion shows and was actually in Vegas to watch the singer’s first Revival Tour show.
Speaking of the Biebs. During SelGo’s first show, she debuted a brand new song called “Feel Me,” which is choc full of pointed lyrics wishing a lifetime of unfulfilled relationships on an ex-boyfriend. Many believe the track is about Bieber.
During Gomez’s Fresco show on Sunday night, she crumpled up a fan’s sign which read “Marry Justin Please” after noticing it in the crowd.
So, is Gomez’s seeming petting session with Bloom the real thing?
Not according to Gossip Cop. Within 30 minutes of TMZ posting their Bloom-Gomez story, the rumor-busting site threw cold water on the cheating speculation.
Gossip Cop writes, “All the photos show, when looked at rationally, is the two longtime friends hugging and leaning in close to talk inside a noisy venue.”
The watchdog outlet continued, “The continued sightings are not because of a blossoming relationship, but close friendship. And you know what? Friends hang out in public places.” The site added Bloom and Gomez, “currently remain just friends.”

We’ll leave it to readers to decide for themselves what they make of the denial statement and Vegas pictures of Selena and Orlando hugging (and possibly more). For now, it’s probably prudent to remember Hollywood weaves more tangled webs than a spider — and wait for Katy Perry’s next tweet.
Meanwhile, the Biebs was spotted walking barefoot enjoying the sights of around Boston Commons, crosswalks, and entering his hotel in Boston on Monday, ahead of two Purpose World Tour concerts at the city’s TD Garden Arena.
