Around 10 p.m. on Dec. 22, Romeo Miller, formerly known as Lil’ Romeo posted a pic with friends having a “chill Saturday night.” However, at 5 a.m. the next morning he shared a pic of Selena sitting on a bed — wearing the sweatshirt he had on earlier!
Could Selena Gomez really be dating Lil Romeo? After a series of flirty Instagram pics, a report surfaced that Romeo, 24, has been continually asking her out and that it’s finally worked — they’ve been going on dates. So, is there any truth to this? HollywoodLife.com got the exclusive details clearing it all up.
Lil’ Romeo & Selena Gomez Dating?
“[Romeo] has been asking her out over and over. She’s always shut him down, but she’s not shutting him down anymore,” an insider told MediaTakeOut.com. The source added that now they’ve hung out with a group and gone on “a couple of dates.”
Not to worry though, Beilibers — Selena and Lil’ Romeo are not dating.
“It’s not true,” a source close to Selena told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
We see how the rumors started, since he posted the late night pic of Selena with the following caption: “live for the nights that I can’t remember with the people that I won’t forget. #romeeverything.”
Selena Is ‘The Happiest’ She’s Ever Been
That same day, she wrote, “I’m the happiest I’ve been in a while.. So blessed and thankful for the future, for release and to finally be happy for those I loved..”
While they’re not dating, it’s nice to see they’re friends! Selena just canceled her Australian tour, due to needing some time for herself. So, we wouldn’t want her to jump into another relationship!
“It has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be,” she said in a statement.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers — do you think Romeo and Selena should date?
