Rumor Patrol: Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom Aren’t Dating — Report
Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom might be hanging out, but they’re not a couple — just a couple of people who happen to share a few mutual pals. According to E! News, the unlikely duo isn’t dating… and they’re barely even friends!
The not-couple was spotted together after seeing Chelsea Handler perform live in LA (lucky!), and reportedly made a big show of not being photographed together by paparazzi. That usually means that a budding couple is trying to hide their relationship from the public, but in this case, it sounds like it’s all one big misunderstanding.
Selena was actually at the show with a bunch of girlfriends, and when they met up with a larger group of people for dinner, that’s where Orlando came into play. The source says they’d only met for the first time last month, and that since the two barely know each other, Selena is “not interested” in Orlando.
“They are not dating,” the source confirms. “[They] were there with a bunch of people.”
Despite the fact that it might have seemed like Selena was trying to make (current? Ex? Who knows anymore?) boyfriend Justin Bieber jealous by hanging with the Pirates of the Caribbean star, it’s just not true. Besides, there’s a pretty big age difference between the two stars — Selena’s 21, and Orlando’s 37.
Sorry, everyone. Our dreams of Selena falling in love with someone who’s not Justin Bieber will just have to wait.
