Does Selena Gomez have a new boyfriend? Rumors are flying around Hollywood after a Disneyland outing with singer Austin Mahone.
Ever since Selena Gomez gave Justin Bieber the old heave-ho, the 20-year-old singer has been linked to every boy she’s hung out with. The latest name on the list is YouTube personality Austin Mahone.
Mahone is a 17-year-old singer whose performances became viral videos on the internet. As a result of his growing popularity online, Gomez’s BFF Taylor Swift has added him to her current Red tour.
If this story sounds familiar, it is. A recent news story also linked the Spring Breakers star with Swift’s other touring partner, Ed Sheeran. Gomez has not confirmed any dating news — she just likes to keep everyone guessing.
On Wednesday, the “Who Says” singer was spotted at Disneyland with Mahone and a group of friends. The outing appeared to be platonic, though.
A source told People, “Austin is on tour with Taylor through the summer, so he met Selena through Taylor. They’re all friends and are just hanging out having fun.”
After Gomez’s long on-again, off-again relationship with Bieber, fans seem eager to figure out who her next boyfriend will be. In a March appearance on Chelsea Lately, the former Disney star admitted that she was enjoying her single-gal status, so Gomez might be looking for some time to herself.
As for Mahone, the only thing he has confirmed is that E! News misspelled his name.
He tweeted at the entertainment channel on Friday, “Hey @ENews it’s Mahone not Mahoney.”
Ah, the problems of stardom.
