Selena Gomez is single and very ready to mingle. After enjoying a night out with rocker Alexander DeLeon on June 23, could there be a streamy romance brewing between the singers? HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned the truth!
Selena Gomez, 22, can hang out with any guy she wants. On June 22, she stepped out with The Cab frontman Alexander DeLeon, 26, for dinner at Hotel Chantelle in New York City, looking fierce and sexy for their night out! The “Good For You” singer has been “great friends” with Alexander for awhile, and HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned whether their friendship is turning into something more!
There is “nothing romantic” between Selena and Alex at all,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They definitely have no sexual chemistry with each other but they are certainly not repulsed by each other. Alex likes hanging out with beautiful people.” Sorry Selena and Alex shippers! It doesn’t look like Alexander has eyes for Selena, since he’s also still dating Danish model Josephine Skriver, and “things are still going well with her,” according to our source.
An onlooker at the trendy NYC hotspot confirms that nothing romantic was going on. “It was pretty platonic,” another source says. We don’t blame Alexander for wanting to hang out with Sel! Not only is her career on fire after releasing “Good For You,” but she turned major heads in a sexy plunging black jumpsuit while out with Alexander. Selena and Alexander have been friends for years, and were even photographed hugging during their New Years’s trip to Dubai. We know that Sel has a ton of close gal pals like Taylor Swift, and it’s great she has close guy friends, too!
If you would love to hear these two collaborate on music, you’re not alone. “Nothing [is] planned yet but the possibility is there since they are great friends. But they are just social butterflies, no collaborations as of yet or anytime soon,” our insider says.
“I just spent the weekend in Kansas with Paul Rudd, Olivia Wilde, Jason Sudeikis and Johnny Knoxville,” Selena said on SiriusXM Hits 1’s The Morning Mash Up on June 22. “I was like, ‘Guys, lets talk about some dates!’ That’s kind of my approach. When I meet cool people like them, I want what they have.” We have every confidence in you, Sel! To hear more about Selena, head over to iTunes to download the new HollywoodLife podcast for free!
