Selena Gomez’s Dating History – A Complete List of Boyfriends


Selena Gomez has had her fair share of ups and downs these past few years, from enduring a kidney transplant, to revisiting an old flame with Justin Bieber.

Now that Bieber has a wife, it’s safe to say that the Jelena ship has officially sailed – but who has Selena been getting cozy with since?

Here we dive into Selena Gomez’s dating history, which actually includes other men – besides Justin (shocker, we know).

Ex: Nick Jonas

Who is He? Singer
Dated In: 2008 

Nick Jonas may be Miley Cyrus’ ex-boyfriend, but yes, Selena Gomez also had a go at the famous singer. In 2008, the teen stars shared a relationship for a few months, sending both their fans into a frenzy.

They only went on one date in Central Park, but it was a date that Nick Jonas will forever be trolled for. He told Selena that she should “walk 25ft” behind him, so the press wouldn’t report that they were dating. A first love gone wrong.

Years down the line and Selena has explained that Nick was “puppy love. It was very sweet. He’s lovely. I do have a love for him for sure.”

Ex: Taylor Lautner

Who is He? Actor
Dated In: 2009

Selena’s relationships sure have always been hot news. When she briefly dated Twilight heartthrob, Taylor Lautner, the constant paparazzi killed their affair before it really started. The public interest was so high that they would get followed everywhere, to dinner, bowling and even around their hotel.

Selena told Seventeen:

“Kristen [Stewart] was staying in my hotel. He would visit her, so we were constantly running into each other in the lobby—and we ended up meeting. We would go out to lunch and dinner, but I knew he had paparazzi following him and I had paparazzi following me. So we literally just wanted to hang out, go bowling and stuff, and it went a little too far, I think. People were getting a little crazy about us.”

Ex: Justin Bieber

Who is He? Singer
Dated In: December 2010-March 2018 (on and off)

The Jelena love story grabbed the hearts of the nation, and it all started in 2010 when the pair were spotted at IHOP eating pancakes together. They then attended numerous events together before confirming that they were a couple.

In 2014, however, the pair had a huge argument at Coachella over photos of Kylie Jenner on Justin’s phone. Yet, the lovebirds couldn’t stay apart for too long; just a few months later, they were back to being Jelena again (yay!), but split for (what we thought was) good in 2015.

After Selena’s kidney transplant, the famous couple rekindled their old flame, but not even a year later, they called it quits (for good this time) before Justin dated and married Hailey Baldwin.

Rumored Ex: Zayn Malik

Who is He? Singer
Dated In: 2012 (might officially be dating now – scroll down!)

Although there’s no confirmation that Selena and Zayn dated, rumors did fly that the pair hooked up in 2012, while Taylor Swift was also seeing his bandmate Harry Styles at the time. In 2016, Justin Bieber even accused Selena of “cheating” on him with Zayn during one of their feuds.

Update: Selena and Zayn might *actually* be dating now – scroll down for more deets!

Rumored Ex: David Henrie

Who is He? Actor
Dated In: 2014

During her break-up with Justin, Selena was also linked to another boyfriend – her Wizards of Waverly Place co-star, David Henrie. According to close friends, however, the pair weren’t actually dating and were just hanging out as mates.

Rumored Ex: Orlando Bloom

Who is He? Actor
Dated In: April 2014 & 2016

During her split with Bieber, Selena showed interest in actor, Orlando Bloom. While some believe this was an attempt for the pair to make their exes Justin and Miranda Kerr jealous, they seemed quite into each other. This relationship also caused a fistfight between Justin and Orlando in 2014 at a club in Ibiza.

A few years later, Selena and Orlando met in a club in Vegas and seemed extremely cozy, although the actor was dating Katy Perry at the time. Nothing further came from that story and the pair haven’t been spotted together since.

Rumored Ex: Tommy Chiabra

Who is He? Businessman
Dated In: July 2014

After her split with Justin, Selena enjoyed a summer fling with millionaire hunk, Tommy Chiabra. When pictures emerged of the singer and her new boyfriend on a jet ski, it sparked much speculation, but nothing solid came from this fling.

Ex: Zedd

Who is He? DJ
Dated In: January – March 2015

While working on music together in 2015, Zedd and Selena grew a lot closer than just friends. They enjoyed a short and intimate romance (they even shared snaps on their social accounts), but the constant attention from the press drove Zedd away.

During an interview, Zedd said that he didn’t realize how much Selena would change his life. Believe it or not, the newspapers tapped into his friends’ phone to try and get any source of information about their relationship. Sounds exhausting!

Rumored Ex: Niall Horan

Who is He? Singer
Dated In: December 2015

While there was much speculation of the pair dating in 2015, Selena set the record straight when she friend-zoned Niall during an interview with Entertainment Tonight – “Oh my god! No. I love him, I always have. He’s amazing.” 

Shortly after Bieber’s wedding in 2019, a group picture emerged in which Niall had his arm around Selena, making many believe that there could be a potential romance on the table. But again, it turned out that these two are just good friends.

Rumored Ex: Samuel Krost

Who is He? Fashion Executive
Dated In: 2016 & 2019

Selena briefly dated fashion executive, Samuel Krost amidst the Fyre Festival bonanza. Krost confirmed this by posting-and-deleting the following on Instagram: “Selena is a real girl with a real heart and real feelings. All you superficial who are just unhappy with your love lives understand that love is real. Although we have ventured on separate paths, at least I know that love exists. I love you, Sel.”

In 2019, the pair were spotted hanging out and Selena was seen sporting some of Krost’s clothing. She then took to Instagram to confirm that she’s very much still single.

Ex: Charlie Puth

Who is He? Singer
Dated In: March 2016

Remember the clip of Charlie saying “F**k you Justin” during a concert in 2016? That was clearly linked to his short-lived romance with Selena which involved a lot of hanging out together.

Despite the pair trying to deny rumors of their relationship, Charlie admitted years later that it was true, during an interview with Billboard saying that the relationship was “very short-lived, very small, but very impactful. And it really messed me up. I’m trying to put this the best way possible: It wasn’t like I was the only person on her mind. And I think I knew that going in—what I was getting myself into.”

Ex: The Weeknd

Who is He? Singer
Dated In: January – October 2017

Other than Bieber, Selena’s most famous boyfriend was The Weeknd. The duo made headlines when they were first spotted making out in Santa Monica. They then broke the Internet when they made their red carpet appearance at the Met Gala and melted hearts with super cute Instagram posts.

The Weeknd was also super supportive during Selena’s transplant procedure, but it seemed like their busy schedules and The Weeknd’s interest in his ex, Bella Hadid got in the way of their romance.

Rumored Ex: Jimmy Butler

Who is He? NBA Player
Dated In: December 2020

Yet another man in Selena’s love life was Jimmy Butler. Sel was reportedly spotted hanging out with this NBA star and a source even revealed to E! Online that she had been on “a few dates with Jimmy and thinks he’s a great guy.” Turns out, this hook-up was a completely fabricated story, because PopCulture reported that any photos of the duo together were merely “photoshopped”.

Rumored Ex: Aaron Dominguez

Who is He? Actor
Dated In: March 2021

When Selena and her co-star Aaron Dominguez were photographed cuddling together back at the start of 2021, Selenators went berserk, insisting that he was her new man. Of course, Dominguez was just another rumored stud added to her relationship timeline – any photos of the two together were actually snapped whilst filming their series Only Murders in the Building.

Rumored Ex: Chris Evans

Who is He? Actor
Dated In: October 2021

Just when we thought this would be Hollywood’s next it-couple, news broke that Selena and Chris Evans were very much not a thing. Rumors of a possible relationship between Selena and the Captain America star began after photos of them leaving a recording studio and restaurant on the same day circulated. But Elle discovered that the pictures were taken years ago, at different times. DARN IT!

Rumored Ex: Andrea Iervolino

Who is He? Film producer
Dated In: August 2022

Another rumored love interest in Selena’s life was Italian-Canadian film producer Andrea Iervolino. During Sel’s 30th birthday party in Italy, the pair were spotted hanging out and getting pretty cozy on a yacht. They clearly couldn’t keep their hands to themselves as they reportedly danced together and hugged. Andrea even supposedly planted a kiss on the singer’s forehead!

Sorry to burst your bubbles, but nothing came about of this relationship thereafter. Selena and Andrea have been linked together in the past, however, and she did star in his movie In Dubious Battle, so maybe there was a secret little fling going on!    

Rumored Ex: Bradley Peltz

Who is He? Businessman
Dated In: January 2023

Selena has recently grown close with couple Nicola Peltz and Brooklyn Beckham, and jokingly called them a “throuple”. Out of this relationship flourished another – that with Nicola’s brother, Bradley Peltz. When the businessman was caught liking one of Sel’s Instagram posts and when she was captured in one of Brooklyn’s videos, fans speculated that the Calm Down star was in a relationship with him. However, this rumor was immediately shut down following speculation that Selena was dating another fella…

Rumored Ex: Drew Taggart

Who is He? The Chainsmokers star 
Dated In: January 2023

When Selena and Chainsmokers star Drew Taggart were photographed on a “flirty” bowling date together and reportedly ““making out” like teenagers”, couple alert bells starting ringing. But although Page Six’s sources claimed that the duo were a thing, Selena took to Instagram to immediately deny it.

In a story in which she quickly deleted, Sel captioned a photo of a mountain, “I like being alone too much”, along with the hashtag, “#iamsingle.”

Rumored Boyfriend: Zayn Malik

Who is He? Singer
Dated In: March 2023

Could it be? Is it true? Has Selena got her hands on a former One Direction boy? This scoop may very well be true, folks, and we’re freakin’ excited!

TikTok user Klarissa Garcia revealed in a video that Selena Gomez and Zayn were out together displaying PDA at a New York restaurant. Sharing messages from a friend who is a hostess at a celebrity hot spot, the friend wrote, “Tell me how Selena Gomez and Zayn just walked into [restaurant] hand in hand making out and I seated them.”

There are no official photos of this rumored outing, but we have all the reason to believe that Zayn is indeed dating our girl. He only follows 18 people on Instagram, and she happens to be one of them; and let’s not forget that Selena chose Zayn when asked in 2013 which member of One Direction she would pick for a kiss.

This former Disney star has been looking for her prince-charming for quite a while now, and we have high hopes that he’s in the form of Zayn Malik.

Do you think she should have stuck with Justin or another of her ex-boyfriends? Get involved in the conversation below and let us know which man on her dating history list is best for Sel!
