Selena Gomez And Zayn Malik Reportedly Spotted ‘Kissing’ At NYC Restaurant
Extra, extra, “Come And Get It”— we have the inside scoop on Selena Gomez‘s possible new relationship, and the tea is boiling. The “Only Murders In The Building” star is reportedly dating UK-born One Direction singer Zayn Malik, 30, and no, we can’t “Calm Down” about it. How did the chisme come to light in the first place? The two celebs were allegedly spotted on a date in NYC, and TikTok receipts are adding fuel to the fire. Here’s everything we know!
Gomez and Malik were reportedly spotted in a SoHo restaurant
Someone who allegedly spotted Selena and Zayn (now baptized as Zaylena) with their very own eyes talked to Entertainment Tonight, proving not all heroes wear capes. The source told the outlet, “Selena and Zayn went out in SoHo in New York City last night at around 10:30 pm” on Thursday.
The insider also said that the two stars couldn’t keep their hands to themselves, and we’re here for it. They described how the couple “walked in holding hands and were kissing” but most other restaurant-goers didn’t even notice them (a low-key king and queen). The source continued, “It seemed like they were comfortable together and it was clear that it was a date.” Swoon.
While many of us were caught up in all the recent drama involving Gomez and her ex Justin Bieber’s wife Hailey Bieber, it seems like the actress couldn’t care less — and we love it. It’s safe to say the 30-year-old star is 100% “sick of that same old love,” and is much too busy having fun… and moving on.
A TikTok video corroborated the rumor
As with all good chisme, there are a few other tangents to the tea we had to share, too. For one, TikToker @klarissa.mpeg shared screenshots her friend sent her that also prove Gomez and Malik went out on that date. She explained her friend is a hostess at an NYC restaurant and immediately texted her when she saw the two celebs together.
The text read, “Are you ready for this??! I’m screaming. Tell me how Selena Gomez and Zayn just walked into [the restaurant] hand in hand making out and I seated them.”
The best part of the text exchange? The TikToker’s friend said it all with: “Girl, everyone’s out here feeling bad for Selena, MEANWHILE, she’s with Gigi [Hadid’s] baby zaddy.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
Malik’s family is also supporting Gomez on IG
But wait, there’s more. Sleuthing fans noticed Malik’s sister Safaa Azad Malik reposted Gomez’s Instagram post on her own IG Story. As you can expect, many are taking it as even more confirmation of a possible relationship:
Adding even more weight to the rumors, Malik’s ex Gigi Hadid is also weighing-in on the possible relationship. An inside source told US Weekly, “Gigi has no problem whatsoever with Zayn dating… As long as he is happy and stable and continues to be a good coparent to [their daughter] Khai, she’s fine with whoever he goes out with.”
Now that that’s settled, we’ll leave you with this dug-up video of Gomez saying she would pick Zayn Malik (presumably out of all the other One Directioners) for a kiss:
Possibly even better? This old photo of Malik posing with a magazine with Gomez on the cover… and saying “hey :)” to her on Twitter in 2010:
