“I don’t know if anyone really understands me,” Charlie Puth told Us Weekly in November. “Which is why I hang out with Selena Gomez. She gets me.” These days, it’s more than hanging out. The “See You Again” singer, 24, and Gomez, 23, are hooking up, a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.
“It’s not serious, but she’s super into him,” says the insider. (A Gomez pal insists it’s just a “flirty friendship.”)
The pair, who recorded the duet “We Don’t Talk Anymore” for his debut album Nine Track Mind, will take their romance on the road in May when Puth appears on her Revival tour.
Puth first met Gomez at an MTV Video Music Awards party last August. “I just went up to her and started talking to her,” the Golden Globe nominee previously told Us. “I was very floored by how well she handled herself and how mature she was. It’s nice to get to know the actual person and finding out she’s an interesting person ... I’m happy that we’re friends.”
Still, he’s not the only guy vying for her heart. Ex Justin Bieber, who she has dated on and off since 2010, “wants her back,” adds a source close to the 22-year-old pop star. “He’d love to be with her, but she won’t go for it.”
On March 19, the “What Do You Mean?” singer shared a 2011 throwback photo of him and Gomez sharing a sweet kiss on Instagram. See another intimate throwback pic.
“Feels,” Bieber captioned the shot. According to the Daily Mail, Gomez commented on the post, “Perfect.”
