Selena Gomez And Niall Horan Went Public With Romance In Santa Monica? ‘They Were Holding Hands,’ Claims Source

Selena Gomez and her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, appeared to be on the verge of a reconciliation just days ago, but now, after two alleged dates with another man, Selena Gomez may be out of Bieber’s reach. As Bieber continues to share throwback photos of himself and Selena Gomez, she seems to have her eye on One Direction member Niall Horan.

While Selena Gomez and Horan have been the topic of several online rumors in the last couple of years, the latest reports seem to hold more weight.

On Saturday, Us Weekly claimed Selena Gomez and Horan were spotted kissing at the birthday party of Jenna Dewan Tatum’s 35th birthday bash at Bootsy Bellows in Los Angeles.

“Niall and [Selena Gomez] were seen kissing in the middle of the club, in front of everyone. [They] definitely seemed very close and like they were together. Niall got there first with his bodyguard, then the next thing I know, I looked over and [Selena Gomez] was there. They were very close together, talking and whispering.”

The magazine also claimed Selena Gomez left with the singer. However, up until this point, there doesn’t appear to be any photo of the two together, despite the club being a major paparazzi magnet in Hollywood.

In a separate report days later, Selenga Gomez was said to have reunited with Horan for a second date at the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles.

“[Selena Gomez] and Niall definitely looked like a couple,” an eyewitness told Hollywood Life on December 7. “They looked really cute together and when I saw them in line for the roller coaster, they were holding hands and laughing. Everyone here was so excited when they saw them together. They were with some other people but seemed to really be doing their own thing.”

Selena Gomez and her rumored new love interest were said to have partaken in some of the Pier’s activities, one of which included a My Little Pony prize, which Horan attempted to win for Selena Gomez.

“Niall was trying to win [Selena Gomez] a My Little Pony stuffed animal at the water gun race booth. He didn’t win one, but they both seemed really happy and when they weren’t holding hands, she had her arm interlocked with his arm.”

The Hollywood Life source went on to reveal that Selena Gomez and Horan were “all cozy on the Ferris wheel together,” when crowds around them began to take notice of their identities.

As Selena Gomez reportedly gets to know Horan on a romantic level, her former boyfriend, Bieber, appears to be doing what he can to get her attention. In the past several days, Bieber has shared a couple of throwback photos of himself and Selena Gomez, and at the end of last month, the two were spotted out in Los Angeles together.

Weeks prior to Selena Gomez’ reunion with Bieber, she was spotted out on what appeared to be a dinner date in New York City with a close friend of Gigi Hadid. Although the rumored romance between Selena Gomez and Samuel Krost doesn’t appear to have gone anywhere in the weeks since the date, the two looked quite cozy when they visited Cipriani for a late night meal after the 2015 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards. As they sat with friends, Selena Gomez and Krost gazed into each other’s eyes, held hands, and, at one point, Selena Gomez was photographed on his lap.
