Fans have questioned whether singer-actor Selena Gomez and Hollywood star Chris Evans are dating years after Gomez named Evans her celebrity infatuation.
While neither Gomez nor the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ star have publicly addressed the fan claims, Us Weekly said that eagle-eyed social media sleuths have revealed various clues on Twitter and TikTok that appear to refer to a new Hollywood pairing.
Fans noted that the ‘Gifted’ star had began following the ‘Lose You to Love Me’ singer on Instagram shortly after the photographs were shared on the social media platform.
While this isn’t the first time the two have been linked, the ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’ alum’s fans were concerned about the possibility of a romance when she admitted to being interested in the Massachusetts native.
“I kind of have a crush on Chris Evans. Isn`t he cute? He`s very cute,” Gomez noted during a 2015 appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen when she was asked about her love life. After Andy Cohen noted that his “gay brother” bartended on WWHL one week earlier, she excitedly added, “Really? Last week? Maybe it`s meant to be.”
“Oh man, he’s either going to hate me or love me,” she said in the 2015 interview, referring to her crush on the ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ star as the “first time” she publicly discussed her crush on him.
After meeting on the set of ‘Gifted’ in 2016, the MCU star was linked to Jenny Slate, with whom he eventually parted in March 2018. Evans made news earlier this year after exchanging romantic social media texts with Lizzo.
