Here’s What’s Really Going on Between Selena Gomez + Her Rumored New Boyfriend
In the wake of news that Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are engaged, Selena Gomez has been facing some extra heavy scrutiny from the paps, which, naturally, has quickly led to rumors of a new boyfriend.
The 25-year-old singer has been spotted hanging out with a guy named Caleb Stevens in both New York City and Fleischmann, a small town upstate where she's shooting her new zombie film The Dead Don't Die alongside Bill Murray and Austin Butler. Most recently, they were photographed leaving the same cabin, though separately. So what's really going on here?
Absolutely nothing, according to a source for People, who Stevens is the younger brother of Gomez's best friend, Raquel Stevens.
“They’re absolutely only friends," the source told the outlet. "They're not dating."
Stevens just graduated high school, so it makes sense that he'd be tagging along with his sister, especially if she has a famous friend who can invite him along to big Hollywood events: He also attended Gomez's Hotel Transylvania 3 Los Angeles premiere two weeks ago.
As for Gomez's real love life, she seems to be keeping things low-key. The source added Gomez has not kept in touch with Bieber since they ended their rekindled romance earlier this year, while another told E she's open to dating, but "learning to appreciate the alone time."
So that's that, folks!
