Selena Gomez was plagued with rumours she was dating Zayn Malik earlier this year after the pair were reportedly seen at a restaurant "hand in hand making out" just weeks after following each other on Instagram.

After just a few months the dating rumours quickly died out and Selena made it clear she living her best single life with 2023 song 'Single Soon'. However, just three months later Selena confirmed she's now dating producer Benny Blanco.

The former Disney star has been linked to a string of famous faces over the years including her high-profile relationship with Justin Bieber and her romance with The Weeknd in 2017.

Selena has mostly remained tight-lipped on her love life, with the Rare Beauty mogul taking to TikTok frequently to joke about single life. That was until she hopped onto the 'gram to confirm her relationship with Benny Blanco.

But who is Selena dating in 2023 and who are her ex-boyfriends? Here's a look at Selena's dating history...

Selena confirmed she's in a new relationship with music producer Benny Blanco, 35, who you'll know for songs like 'Eastside' with Halsey and Justin Bieber's 'Lonely'. He also worked with Selena on her song 'I Can't Get Enough' with J Balvin and Tainy where he even starred in the video dressed as a teddy bear.

Selena confirmed their relationship on 7th December when she posted a picture of her and Benny, whose face was cut off, on Instagram Stories, showing her cuddled into his shoulder.

The 31-year-old confirmed she and Benny are dating after commenting on Popfactions' Instagram post speculating they were together. She commented: "Facts," on their post.

"He is my absolute everything in my heart," she added. And when fans started criticising their relationship claiming he'd made jabs at her in the past, Selena responded: "Then why has he been the best thing that's ever happened to me. The end."

Selena Gomez and Zayn Malik were at the centre of dating rumours for weeks after they followed each other on Instagram at the start of 2023 and were reportedly spotted on a date night in New York City just weeks later.

Reports have claimed since that the pair were initially romantically linked back in 2012 following her first breakup from Justin Bieber.

It's thought that they 'had a thing' around the same time that Selena's BFF Taylor Swift was dating Zayn's former 1D bandmate Harry Styles. Zayn and Selena never addressed the rumours, but Selena made her single status clear in her 2023 song 'Single Soon'.

Selena dated The Weeknd for around nine months in 2017 and they were first linked two months after his split from Bella Hadid.

They ended their whirlwind romance in October of the same year and it wasn't long before the Canadian hitmaker penned about their split in a handful of his songs on his album, ‘My Dear Melancholy’.

His lyrics even hinted at Selena's rekindled romance with Justin Bieber, who she went on to briefly date again in 2018 following her split from The Weeknd. Abel sang on his track with Nav called 'Some Way': “I think your girl, think your girl, fell in love with me."

At the start of 2023 Selena was rumoured to be dating the Chainsmokers star Drew Taggart, with reports claiming they had a low-key, casual relationship in the New Year. They were spotted making out on a bowling date in January, according to Deux Moi, and weeks later were pictured having dinner together.

A source told Us Weekly at the time: "They aren’t trying to hide their romance by sneaking around at members-only clubs,” adding they'd gone on public dates like “bowling and to the movies.”

Their insider added Gomez was happy to engage in PDA with Taggart: "[She is] so affectionate [with him]. Selena can hardly keep her hands off him. [They’re] having a lot of fun together.”

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber

Perhaps Selena's most high-profile relationship thus far was her long-term romance with Justin Bieber.

The stars first sparked dating rumours in 2010 and confirmed their relationship in 2011, when Selena was 18 and Justin was 16.

The pair quickly became the most talked-about couple in Hollywood before the 'Baby' hitmaker was hit with rumours that he had cheated on Selena in 2012, which led to their first breakup.

They rekindled their romance in 2015 and dated for a few years on and off but split for good in May 2018 when Selena was 26 and Justin was 24.

The reason behind their split was never publicised but many reports following claimed that the relationship had been 'unhealthy' for a while, with both singers going on to pen emotional songs about their heartache following their split.

Justin went on to marry Hailey Baldwin two months later, and Selena and Hailey have since been forced to publicly address that they're on good terms a handful of times after fandoms theorised a feud between them.
