After seemingly denying the dating rumors with Drew Taggart, photos of Selena Gomez holding hands with one-half of The Chainsmokers singer emerged online. The two appeared to have enjoyed a dinner at Torrisi Bar & Restaurant in Soho on Saturday, January 21. So, what's the real score?
Rumors about Gomez and Taggart dating started circulating online after they were spotted playing bowling together. After that, the 30-year-old seemingly denied the claims after making a post on Instagram Story with the hashtag #iamsingle, which she later deleted.
The two singers looked very much like a couple after grabbing dinner. They put on a major PDA as they held hands while paparazzi took their snaps together.
The "Only Murders in the Building" star donned an all-black outfit, from her turtleneck to blazer to pants to platform shoes. The DJ opted for a more casual look, wearing jeans decorated with butterflies, sneakers, and a jacket over a hoodie.
Gomez shared a black-and-white photo on her now-deleted Instagram post with the caption, "I like being alone too much." It also had the hashtag #iamsingle at the bottom.
The pair's outing comes just days after they were seen together on an alleged bowling date at The Gutter in Brooklyn. A source told Page Six at the time that they were caught "making out like teenagers," not even minding the onlookers.
After a day, a different insider confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that Gomez and Taggart "are dating and things are still new." The tipster also revealed that they met through mutual friends in a "friendly, low-key way" and had an "instant connection."
They, too, liked each other as persons. Us Weekly also confirmed that Gomez and Taggart are dating. With their recent outings, the publication's insider claimed that they aren't trying to hide their romance by sneaking around at members-only clubs.
They're very "casual and low-key." Aside from bowling, they also allegedly went to the movies as they spent some time together. In addition, Gomez was said to be "so affectionate" with Taggart and couldn't even keep her hands off him. Hence, they're said to be "having a lot of fun together."
Meanwhile, the "Roses" hitmaker's budding relationship with the "Wizards of Waverly Place" alum comes four months after Us confirmed he was dating Steve Job's youngest daughter, Eve Jobs.
Their romance began from a "casual summer" after growing closer throughout the summer. However, their relationship started fizzing out even before Taggart met Gomez.
