Chris Evans & Selena Gomez are some of the most popular stars on the screen. After rising as a Disney child actress, Selena has gone on to star in films like Spring Breakers & series like Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building. Evans came to fame through the Avengers franchise, yet has gone on to star in indie films like Knives Out.
Could the success of these two Hollywood elites be dwarfed by the rumors surrounding them? There has been much buzz on the web lately of fans shipping the couple. Yet does the alleged relationship between Gomez & Evans have any validity? Let’s dig deeper and find out.
Rumor has it
A recent bit of gossip suggests that Chris Evans & Selena Gomez were photographed with each other. However, after some investigation by fans, this story was deemed to be false. The photos only made it seem that the two were together & were taken on two separate occasions.
An independent entertainment blog released photos of Gomez & Evans allegedly leaving a restaurant & recording studio on the same day. Elle then blew the lid off these rumors, finding that these photos were old. Gomez appeared in photos from November 2017 & October 2019. Evans’ photos were from October 2013 & summer 2020.
Why are people shipping Gomez & Evans?
The rumblings of a “Chelena” relationship date back a few years. When Selena appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live in 2015, she told host Andy Cohen “I kind of have a crush on Chris Evans.” This was before her breakup with Justin Bieber in 2018, so it must have flown under the radar.
When blogs & fans noticed that Chris Evans followed Selena Gomez on Instagram earlier this month, it ignited gossip. It seemed significant to some that Gomez was among the 162 accounts Evans follows on the platform. Perhaps Selena didn’t know Chris followed her, as she has over 267 million followers on Instagram.
Neither Chris Evans nor Selena Gomez has said anything publicly about the suggestions of them dating. Given Selena’s highly-publicized personal life, we will most likely be hearing more stories about her and Evans possibly dating.
Selena Gomez’s love life
In addition to starring in Only Murders in the Building, Selena Gomez also has a cooking show called Selena + Chef on HBO Max. Not only that, but she has a cosmetics line called Rare Beauty & is still releasing music. It’s hard to believe that she has any time to date.
In addition to the buzz around Gomez & Chris Evans, fans have also been talking of an alleged coupling between her & Aaron Dominguez. The two are co-stars on Only Murders in the Building & were spotted together getting cozy on the set. Since then both Dominguez & Gomez have reported that they aren’t dating.
Selena Gomez seems to be making the most of her single life. In December of last year, Gomez was reportedly seen with Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler. Gomez & Butler have apparently gone on a couple of dates, yet Selena wants to play the field.
Gomez’s past relationships
One of Selena’s most talked-about relationships was with fellow child star Justin Bieber. The two dated on-and-off from around 2010 to 2018. After the breakup, Selena wanted to focus on herself. Justin seemed to move on a little faster, marrying Hailey Baldwin that same year.
Gomez also dated singer Abel Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd. Their fling only lasted ten months & ended in October 2017. Some speculate as to whether Justin Bieber was a factor in their breakup. Nevertheless, the two said their conflicting schedules were to blame.
Selena Gomez has also been linked to Charlie Puth, Orlando Bloom, and DJ Zedd.
