Is there a serious romance on the horizon for Selena Gomez and Ed Sheeran? A new report states their night out started as a friendly meeting and then blossomed into something more! And the best part is, they might have Justin Bieber to thank for it!
Selena Gomez, 22, and Ed Sheeran, 24, enjoyed a nice evening out with friends at Tori Kelly’s, 22, album release party at The Nice Guy in Los Angeles, Calif. on June 25. That is, until Justin Bieber, 21, showed up! Although the two friends had a great time at the party, Justin’s presence ultimately pushed Selena and Ed to leave the restaurant together. What happened next might just have pushed things along romantically for them both.
Once Selena and Ed left the party, they decided to head back her place to spend more time together and that’s when things started to blossom, Star magazine reports. “Selena’s only ever seen Ed as a friend, but she’s warming up to the idea that there could be more there,” a source close to the former Disney star revealed. “She definitely enjoys spending time with him.” And Selena is doing just that! But perhaps none of this would have happened if Taylor Swift’s, 25, besties didn’t run into Justin that fateful night.
“She told Ed she couldn’t deal and asked if he’d leave with her and he totally had Selena’s back,” the source said. Even though Selena and Justin saw each other, neither made an attempt to say hello and they both managed to avoid an awkward run-in. After the two friends snuck out of the restaurant, they were spotted picking up a few snacks from a 7-Eleven before heading back to Selena’s house where they spent the rest of the night. And if that weren’t enough, when the 24-year-old British singer was asked, he was heard saying he “wouldn’t complain” if his friendship with Selena turned into something more, according to Star magazine’s source.
Taylor Swift Thinks Selena Gomez & Ed Sheeran Would Make A ‘Perfect’ Team
Taylor has been vocal about wanting her two good friends to team up and write sweet music together. “It was Taylor that suggested the pair team up,” a source told HollywoodLife.com. “She had so much success with Ed on her Red album, and thinks he’d be a perfect songwriting partner for Selena. Taylor will always be thankful to Ed for helping her hone her talents, and knows how talented he is to be able to help Selena out too.”
What are your thoughts, HollywoodLifers? Would Selena and Ed make an adorable couple or should they just stick to being friends?
