Is Ryan Seacrest dating Selena Gomez? Say it ain't so! We don't know about you, but we think Ryan Seacrest and Selena Gomez would be a "so wrong" hook-up. Yet, the rumor mill has been grinding hard that the two of them are seeing each other.
Celebs and their actions often become grist for the rumor mill, and the flavor du jour is definitely Selena Gomez. In the past week alone, there have been rumors that the Spring Breakers starlet has a drinking problem, is hooking up with Justin Bieber (again), and our personal fave — that she is dating American Idol 2013 host Ryan Seacrest.
Of course, the alleged source of this rumor is the National Enquirer, so we’re definitely taking that one with a gigantic boulder of salt. According to a supposed source for the rag mag, Cupid struck when Selena stopped by for an interview on Ryan’s L.A. radio show.
“Selena showed up looking super-sexy in a low-cut top, and she totally flirted with Ryan,” according to the insider. The tab went so far as to say that Ryan “told pals he’d love to ask Selena for a date,” with the supposed insider saying, “Ryan thinks they would have a great time together.”
Okay — let’s break this down a bit, shall we? First of all, Ryan is 38 and Selena is 20 years old. Ewww. Just ewww. And, some of the rumors surrounding Ryan’s breakup with Julianne Hough implied Ryan was more ready to settle down, and he didn’t like Julianne’s supposed partying ways. So why would he go for a 20-year-old who has been known to be right at the epicenter of the party scene? He wouldn’t!
As Gossip Cop points out, the tabloid tries to imply this alleged lovestruck moment was the first time the pair met but, in fact, they have been friendly for years. Selena Gomez is even the ambassador to Ryan’s charity, The Ryan Seacrest foundation.
Sometimes, where there’s smoke, there’s fire, but we think this one’s much ado about nothing. Seacrest out (of the rumor mill).
