Does Selena Gomez have “bad blood” with Katy Perry, the rumored inspiration for her best friend Taylor Swift’s hit song? Over the weekend, following the kickoff of her Revival Tour in Las Vegas, Selena Gomez was caught getting cozy with Perry’s boyfriend, Orlando Bloom.
On May 10, TMZ shared photos of Selena Gomez and Bloom at Light nightclub, where they appeared to be quite flirty with each other. According to the report, Selena Gomez was hosting an after party at the venue, which is located inside the Mandalay Bay resort, on Friday, and club sources revealed Bloom was a “surprise, late addition to the party.”
During their night together, the source claimed Selena Gomez, 23, and Bloom, 39, were “touchy feely” with one another and were allegedly spotted “neck-nuzzling and embracing” in a booth.

Although Selena Gomez ultimately went back to her room alone, the photos have caused quite a stir due to Bloom’s relationship with Perry, who was in California at the time of his club appearance with Gomez. As TMZ confirmed, Bloom and Perry are still together and attended a Met Gala after-party as a couple just last week.
Selena Gomez and Bloom have been romantically linked before. Back in 2014, following Bloom’s divorce from ex-wife Miranda Kerr, who just so happened to be in the audience during Selena Gomez’s Las Vegas show on Friday night, Bloom was rumored to be dating Gomez. Around the same time, Kerr was rumored to be hooking up with Selena Gomez’s ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber.

While Bieber has been linked to Kourtney Kardashian in recent months and spent time with rumored ex-girlfriend Hailey Baldwin just last week, he is said to be extremely jealous after seeing photos of Selena Gomez with Bloom in Las Vegas.
“Justin is beyond jealous after seeing the photos of [Selena Gomez] and Orlando. He has secretly always felt threatened by Orlando because he knows Selena has the hots for him. He’s sent Selena a bunch of texts, but she’s not responding, at least not yet,” a source revealed to Hollywood Life. “Justin is so regretting that he wasn’t there in Las Vegas for her opening show. Sadly, seeing Selena with Orlando makes Justin want her that much more!”
Selena Gomez dated Bieber for two years before splitting in 2012, but since then, the couple have sparked rumors of a possible reconciliation numerous times. In fact, fans believed they were on the verge of a reunion less than 2 months ago when Bieber shared a throwback photo on Instagram, which featured him and Selena Gomez kissing one another in a pool.
“[Selena Gomez] loves when Justin gets jealous. She’s just eating it up. It’s like payback for all those times he posted pics of beautiful women when they were still seeing each other on and off,” a second insider told Hollywood Life on May 10. “She wants Justin to know how it feels.”
Although Selena Gomez has not yet commented on her photos with Bloom, she did share a new photo from that particular night on her Instagram page last night.
“After my first show in Vegas. @alfredoflores,” Selena Gomez captioned a photo which featured her walking down a hotel hallway in a long silver dress.
Alfredo Flores, a close friend of Bieber, also shared a photo of Selena Gomez on Friday night on his own Instagram page, which featured the caption, “#revivaltour #squad.”
