And apparently, this was the same time frame that Selena and Zayn ‘hooked up’.
A source told the outlet: “They had a thing years ago, when Taylor and Harry were dating.
“It doesn’t surprise me at all that they’re potentially together [today].”
Selena split from her long-term ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber in 2012 amid rumours he had cheated on her, but they continued their on-off romance for a few more years in 2015 before splitting for good in 2018.
Meanwhile, Zayn was rumoured to have begun dating Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards at some point that same year, with the pair getting engaged in 2013, before calling it quits in 2015.
He later began dating Gigi Hadid, who he went on to welcome a daughter with - baby Khai - but after six years of being on and off, they ended their relationship for good in October 2021.
Selena is the first partner Zayn has been linked to following his split from Gigi.
