“So how did you end it with that guy?” the 30-year-old actress’ “Nana” is overheard asking in a Thursday, July 21, TikTok video.
Gomez, for her part, was in the midst of filming a beauty tutorial for her Rare Beauty company and applying lip liner, seemingly caught off guard by the candid question. “I’ll tell you in a second,” she replied before finishing up her beauty process.

The “Year Without Rain” songstress reiterated her shock over her Nana’s timing, captioning her video, “I have no words.”
“One reason I’m really excited to host SNL is because I’m single,” Gomez said during her Saturday Night Live monologue in May. “I’ve heard SNL is a great place to find romance [since] Emma Stone met her husband [Dave McCary, a former segment director] here, Scarlett Johansson [married Weekend Update’s] Colin Jost and Pete [Davidson] and … Machine Gun Kelly.”
She continued at the time: “Since I don’t want to try the dating apps, I just want to put it out in the universe that I’m manifesting love. And I would like to say that I’m looking for my soulmate, but, at this point, I will take anyone.”
“If I can be honest, it is just so cliché. Everyone dates everyone,” the Spring Breakers actress admitted during a January 2020 interview with Apple Music’s Beats 1. “It always seems to be within a little bubble and it’s because it’s safe, right? You know, you’re wanting someone to understand what you’re going through. You’re almost wanting a counterpart of creativity as well and it’s, you know, interesting and fun.”
She added: “But the problem with that is that you end up — whether you admit it or not — you’re having your relationship for people and not even for yourself. There’s almost this point where it’s like, ‘Oh, we’re making it known that we’re together’ or whatever, whatever it is. It’s like, you just need to decide within our world if it’s for you or is it for show.”
Since then, the “Come & Get It” performer has also poked fun at her single status through TikTok videos.
“I’m going out tonight, so hide your men,” she lip-synced in an April social media video. “Not because I want them, but because I don’t want to see a singular man on my outing.”
