Selena Gomez’s Mystery Man Revealed: Meet Her Couch Cuddle Buddy, Elie

Slowly but surely, we're starting to get some answers about just who that guy is Selena Gomez was cuddling with on the couch on Aug. 7! His name is Elie, and he's actually on the road with Sel for a very important reason. Get the scoop here!

Selena Gomez, 24, had fans’ heads spinning when she posted an Instagram video of herself cuddling up to a mystery man named Elie earlier this week, and it’s now been revealed that he’s a photographer on her Revival tour! The two are very close, as the singer was laying all over him in the clip, which she captioned, “Love my Elie. Everyday we do a little catchup/cuddle sesh.”

However, we can’t confirm the exact status of their relationship: They clearly just spend a lot of time together on the road, and he definitely seems like someone she confides in. Plus, if you search on Twitter, there’s plenty of shots of them hugging and cuddling one another. But are they just REALLY good friends?

Elie’s Instagram page is full of breathtaking photos from around the world, and many feature the 24-year-old in professionally-taken shots by him. Sel also appears on Elie’s Snapchat a ton, and a lot of fans have actually commented on Twitter that they “ship” Elie and Selena together! Maybe that’s the next step?!

Interestingly, Selena seems to have her ex, Justin Bieber, 22, on her mind a bit lately, too. She was recently seen dancing along to his new hit “Cold Water,” and sang his song “Let Me Love You” on Snapchat. Either way, her focus definitely seems to be touring and music right now, so if she wants to have some fun in between, we obviously can’t blame her!

HollywoodLifers, do you think Selena and Elie make a cute couple? Or are they just good friends?
