Selena Gomez hits on soccer players in TikTok
Selena Gomez has confirmed she’s single weeks after she was linked to Zayn Malik.
Selena Gomez hilariously declared herself single to a team of footballers this week while watching them play from the side of the pitch with her friends.
In the TikTok she shouted to the players: “I’m single!” adding, “I’m just a little high maintenance, but I’ll love you so much.”
She captioned the relatable clip: “The struggle man lol.”
Fans loved Selena’s honesty in the TikTok, with one relating the declaration to Selena’s character in Wizards of Waverly Place: “Alex Russo vibes.”
“I would have RAN over to you,” commented another. Same.
“This is so real,” said a third.
Selena was rumoured to be dating Zayn in March this year after they were apparently spotted ‘hand in hand and making out’ on a date in New York.

However, the rumours were only circulating for a few weeks.
Around the same time, an old red carpet interview resurfaced of the Disney alumni admitting she had a crush on Zayn.
Asked which member of the group she’d most likely kiss, she giggled: “Zayn.”
The dating reports in March came a decade after the stars were first linked, when Selena’s BFF Taylor Swift was dating Zayn’s 1D bandmate Harry Styles.
Taylor and Harry had a whirlwind relationship from late 2012 into 2013, inspiring a number of songs thought to be about the British boy band icon, including ‘Style’.
