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

selena gomez dating history

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 cosy 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 has been linked to many celebs including Miley Cyrus. Yet another popstar who dated him was of course, Selena Gomez. 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.

Ex: Taylor Lautner

Who is He? Actor

Dated In: 2009

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

Ex: Justin Bieber

Who is He? Singer

Dated In: 2010 – 2017

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: David Henrie

Who is He? Actor

Dated In: 2014

During her split 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: 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 cosy 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.

Ex: Tommy Chiabra

Who is He? Businessman

Dated In: 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: 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: 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.

Shortly after Bieber’s wedding, 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.

Ex: Samuel Krost

Who is He? Fashion Executive

Dated In: 2016

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: 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. Despite the pair trying to deny rumors of their relationship, Charlie admitted that it was true years later during an interview with Billboard and confessed that their short fling really messed him up.

Ex: The Weeknd

Who is He? Singer

Dated In: 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 schedule 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

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!

This former Disney star still hasn’t met her prince-charming, but we have high hopes that he’s out there somewhere. She’s single now, but hopefully our sweet Selena will get swept off her feet soon. Who will be the one to do so?

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 the list was best for Sel!
