Selena Gomez’s Dating History: 13 Dudes The Pop Star ‘Loved Like A Love Song’

Selena Gomez is a ‘rare beauty’ with a talented voice and memorable acting chops — reason enough for a fleet of Hollywood heartthrobs to lose their hearts for our lady Sel.

From her teenage love Nick Jonas to her whirlwind romance with Justin Bieber to finding romantic solace in Benny Blanco, guy drama clearly has never left the ‘Lose You to Love Me’ singer’s life. 

In this piece, we break down Selena Gomez’s dating history and list a timeline for her relationship with all the dudes who proved the ‘Heart Wants What It Wants’.

Breaking down Selena Gomez’s dating history and list of ex-boyfriends

There is a lot to unpack here, so let’s begin with her teenage beau…

1. Nick Jonas (2008)

Selena Gomez and Nick Jonas’ relationship was everything that teenage love is made of – puppy love and cosying up. The two dated back in 2008 after meeting through their shared Disney Channel connection and soon, speculations about them dating each other started doing the rounds.

Gomez was first spotted skateboarding wearing Jonas’ Elvis Costello t-shirt and then in March of the same year she was photographed spending time with all three Jonas Brothers at the Disney Channel Games. Although Gomez and Jonas didn’t confirm their relationship, things became rather obvious when Gomez appeared in Jonas’ ‘Burnin’ Up’ music video in June 2008 playing Nick’s love interest.

Subsequently, pictures of the pair cosying up backstage were also released confirming the rumours.

Interestingly, Selena’s friend Miley Cyrus was also interested in Nick around the same time, but it was never an issue with the girls. “We never feuded. We both liked the same guy when we were 16. We are now completely settled in our own lives,” Sel told W magazine in 2016.

2. Taylor Lautner (2009)

The next celebrity to go down in Selena Gomez’s dating history is the Twilight star Taylor Lautner whom she briefly romanced in 2009. Talking about how she met Lautner, Gomez 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.”

The two mutually broke up after a few months of dating and continued to stay friends. In the aftermath, Lautner moved on with Selena’s close friend Taylor Swift and she moved on to, well…

3. Justin Bieber (2010-2018)

One of the most iconic celebrity relationships in the history of pop culture, Selena and Justin’s whirlwind romance truly was one for the books. The two first met on a ‘pancake’ date at IHOP in Philadelphia in 2010, and the rest is history.  

The pop stars shared an eight-year-long on-and-off relationship marked by frequent cosy dates, red-carpet outings, tons of drama and the famous ‘J’ diamond ring. 

Well, ‘Jelena’ had officially arrived as a power couple in 2010. However, two years into the relationship, their love story faced a twist, leading to their first separation in 2012. Blaming their break-up on other girls and Bieber’s behavioural issues, Selena called it quits. According to media speculations, it is believed that Justin cheated on Selena with his current wife, Hailey Baldwin.

Two years after their first breakup, Bieber and Gomez got back together in 2014 creating headlines, once again. However, they split again in November of the same year. The Rare Beauty entrepreneur briefly found solace in DJ Zedd after that.

However, it was only a matter of time before Jelena rekindled their romance. Their third reunion unfolded from November 2017 to March 2018. After a social media journey down memory lane and cryptic tweets during their time apart, the duo sparked a Twitter frenzy by taking a bike ride together in Los Angeles.

The reunion garnered reactions not only from fans but also from the stars’ mothers. Bieber’s mother, Pattie Mallette, expressed her support for Gomez, stating, “I support anything [he does], if he loves her I love her.” In contrast, Gomez’s mother, Mandy Teefy, admitted she was “not happy” about the reunion. Despite Gomez posting a birthday tribute for Bieber, expressing admiration, family opinions played a role in their second official break up, marking the end of the most important chapter in Selena Gomez’s dating history. 

Within months of splitting, Bieber reconnected again with Baldwin, but not for a mere rebound. The two soon got engaged, and the news prompted a lot of social media drama in Hollywood. What followed was Gomez’s iconic breakup song Lose You to Love Me.

Looking back on their relationship years later, Gomez in her Apple TV+ documentary My Mind & Me, said that her breakup with Bieber was “the best thing” that ever happened to her. 

4. Orlando Bloom (2014-2016)

While Gomez and Bieber were on a break, the ‘It Ain’t Me’ singer sought comfort in Orlando Bloom. The two were spotted spending time together in LA in April 2014. They were later seen getting cosy in Las Vegas in May 2016, giving rise to dating speculations.

However, a few days later, Bloom’s girlfriend, Katy Perry, set the record straight and dubbed it ‘relationship rumours’ and a “dumb conspiracy” in a Twitter post, which Gomez retweeted.

5. Zedd (Early 2015)

In early 2015, Gomez started working on new music with DJ-producer Zedd and dating rumours about social media’s favourite celebrity soon followed. The two were papped leaving a Golden Globes party hand-in-hand, which was followed by Gomez sharing a selfie with Zedd on Instagram.

She captioned the selfie, “missing la and this punk, just a little tonight. (sic)” In turn, the DJ also shared a screenshot of a video chat with Gomez, captioning the photo of the star laughing in bed, “Oh hi derrling.” And this was it for fans to convince that something serious was brewing between the two.

Zedd even took a trip to Atlanta to visit Gomez while she was filming The Fundamentals of Caregiving. She later posted a group photo, where Zedd could be seen with his arms wrapped around her and a video from a bowling date.

In February 2015, the duo’s first collaboration was released, titled ‘I Want You to Know.’ Zedd was even featured in the music video, as the duo caught glimpses of one another in a packed nightclub.

However, things ultimately fizzled out for the couple. Looking back on the relationship just a few months later, Gomez had nothing but nice things to say. “I adore Anton [Zedd] a lot and I definitely had a thing with him, which was nice,” Gomez shared with People.

Zedd later reflected on his thoughts about their relationship, admitting that the media attention surrounding them was difficult to deal with at times. “Reporters were calling my parents. People were hacking my friends’ phones. I was pissed. I kind of knew what I was getting myself into,” he explained to Billboard, adding, “She is one of the most talked about people in the world, but I had no idea how much that would change my life.”

6. Niall Horan (December 2015)

Selena was also rumoured to be dating One Direction member Niall Horan later in 2015. The duo was spotted on a date at the Santa Monica pier in December and reportedly seen dancing and kissing at Jenna Dewan’s 35th birthday party.

However, Selena rubbished the rumours and friend-zoned Niall when Entertainment Tonight asked if they were dating, saying, “Oh my god! No. I love him, I always have. He’s amazing.” 

7. Samuel Krost (2016)

Selena was also romantically involved with Gigi Hadid’s friend Samuel Krost, also known as Fyre Festival’s booker. The two dated very briefly but we guess that was enough for Krost to lose his heart. He confirmed their relationship after Instagramming and deleting a comment on one of Selena’s pictures that read, “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.”

8. Charlie Puth (2016)

Selena was rumoured to be dating and hooking up with her ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ collaborator Charlie Puth in March 2016. Gomez and Puth tried to rubbish the dating rumours until the latter in a 2018 interview with Billboard, admitted the relationship and said, “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.”

9. The Weeknd (2017)

This one broke the internet! Selena and Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd, were reportedly spotted kissing next to some dumpsters in Santa Monica. The duo also spent a few months travelling to Italy and famously making out on a yacht.  

They finally went Instagram official right in time for Coachella in April 2017. This was followed by their glamorous appearance on the red carpet at the Met Gala.

Their social media was flooded with cute pictures of one another. Selena ended up having a kidney transplant in September 2017 and apparently, the Grammy Winner was by her side through and through. Despite that, the couple called it quits in October. A source told People, “She and Abel have been going back and forth for a few months about their relationship. It’s been hard with him being on tour and her shooting in New York. That wasn’t easy on them.”

10. Chris Evans (2021) 

This is all speculative but Chris Evans and Selena Gomez briefly dated or perhaps went on a date in late 2021. The duo was spotted leaving a restaurant in Los Angeles, giving breeding ground to dating rumours. Evans also followed Gomez on Instagram around the same time. However, the gossip mill was put to rest once it was confirmed that the Ghosted actor was actually dating Portuguese actor Alba Baptista whom he’s now married to.

11. Drew Taggart (2023)

Next up on the list of Selena Gomez’s ex-boyfriends is The Chainsmokers singer Drew Taggart. The two first sparked romance rumours in January 2023 as they were spotted at a bowling alley in N.Y.C..

Shortly after being spotted with Taggart one too many times, the ‘Bad Liar’ singer addressed the dating rumours on her Instagram story writing, “I like being alone too much #iamsingle.”

12. Zayn Malik (March 2023)

After setting the record straight about her relationship status, Gomez was spotted with Zayn Malik in March 2023 on a dinner date in N.Y.C. According to a viral TikTok video created by the restaurant hostess, the celebrity duo walked into the establishment ‘hand in hand’ and were seen ‘making out’ a little. However, nothing further grew after this one date/fling for the singers.

Interestingly, Malik was dating Gomez’s friend Gigi Hadid before this and even shares a daughter with her.

13. Benny Blanco (December 2023-now)

Lastly, we have Selena Gomez’s current boyfriend, music producer Benny Blanco. The duo first sparked dating rumours in December 2023 after Gomez shared a picture of herself resting her head on a man’s chest on her Instagram story. She followed up the photo by writing, “Just a reminder of how much I appreciate and love each and everyone [sic] of you.”

She basically confirmed that Blanco was the identity of her mystery beau by commenting, “Facts,” on a post speculating the two were in a relationship. On another fan page, when a fan posted a photo of the duo, Gomez wrote, “He is my absolute everything in my heart.” 

The songstress later added fuel to the fire by sporting a ring featuring the letter ‘B’ in another Instagram story, seemingly about Blanco’s initials.

The couple made their first public appearance together in January 2024 when they sat courtside at a Los Angeles Lakers game, officially confirming their relationship, and are going pretty strong. 

Gomez posted a loved-up photo dump on Blanco’s birthday in March 2024 and captioned it, “Happy birthday baby! Your emotional endurance, positive disposition, unbelievable talent (that blows me away), undeniable humour and loving, kind heart absolutely kill me. I love
