Zedd & Selena Gomez’s Relationship: How They Went From Friends To Romance
“Zedd had liked Selena for a long time, and when he had a chance to work with her it was a dream come true because he wanted to make it something more,” our source revealed. “At first, Selena wanted zero romance but thought he was a cool guy as she was still all about Justin [Bieber].”
Selena wasn’t quite ready to move on yet, but that didn’t stop her from making one heck of a plan with Zedd.
“Then, around the Golden Globes when they started to be seen with each other, they devised a plan to make it look like a romance was blossoming,” our source continued. “They thought it would help with the release of the song [“I Want You To Know”] being in the news all the time.”
Their hand-holding at a Jan. 11 Golden Globes after party kicked off the Zeddlena obsession. And that’s where the tide turned for Selena.
“Then, Selena started thinking of Zedd in a different way. Zedd was the “Nice Guy” all along, but the more time she spent with Zedd made her realize that there could be more. And he wasn’t going to stop flirting with her. His persistence got to her and she started listening to her friends to give him a chance. Now they are in the relationship we all thought they were in the first place. And they couldn’t be happier.”
Now that Zedd has his girl, he wanted to make a big first impression for their first Valentine’s Day as a couple. HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that Zedd gave Selena a compilation of his favorite love songs as a pre-Valentine’s Day gift. Needless to say, Selena was ecstatic about the present.
“Selena is just blown away with Zedd’s thoughtfulness and creativity,” our source revealed. “She says he’s the whole package!”
