We’ve learned why Selena Gomez turned to online flirting with NHL star Tom Wilson, and it’s not just because he’s a hottie. She’s on the prowl for other guys’ attention because Justin Bieber just won’t commit to her, HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY report.
Selena Gomez, 23, didn’t realize Washington Capitals hockey star Tom Wilson, 21, was a taken man when she went browsing through his Instagram photos and liking what she saw. It’s a shame he has a girlfriend because a new relationship with a hot young athlete could be just the medicine she needs to get over her case of the Bieber fever. HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY report that Sel’s flirting with other guys is a way of testing Justin Bieber to see if he really wants another shot at romance.
“Selena thinks Tom is hot, that’s exactly why she liked his Instagram post,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She wasn’t aware he had a girlfriend, and she’s been flirting with other guys because of her situation with Justin and how he can’t seem to commit to her.” We’re all for Selena reaching out towards a new love interest, especially since she hasn’t been linked to another guy in months, after splitting with DJ Zedd, 26, in April.
“She’s protecting herself from getting hurt by Justin again by hedging her bets, and Selena‘s also forcing his hand to see if he wants to be in a relationship with her,” our insider continues. Her plan may actually have worked, as a day after her online flirtation with Tom went down, Justin posted an adorable throwback photo of himself and Selena in happier times while they were still a happy couple. Not exactly a coincidence with the timing of his gesture, right when Selena seemed to be opening herself up to new guys! Click here to purchase Selena’s amazing new album Revival.
Our source us, “Justin’s been happy playing the field and has a host of other girlfriends he’s flirty with, so Selena thinks she should do the same.” Go for it Selena! The right guy is out there for you, and half the fun is flirting your way into finding him!
