Selena Gomez and Chris Evans’ fans are convinced they are now dating after they dropped some hints on social media.
Selena, 29, and Chris, 40, have a large number of followers who hail their supposed connection as a “power couple.” The two became a popular topic on Twitter as fans began accumulating proof that something was brewing between them.
It all began when Chris began following Selena on Instagram, despite having less than 200 followers on the social media platform. Though the two have never been publicly seen together, their online connection has garnered attention, especially given Chris’ history of interacting with fans and celebrities alike via social media.
He even stepped into Lizzo’s direct messages to join in on the joke that she’s pregnant with his child. Selena, on the other hand, has previously admitted to having a strong crush on the actor.
While invited as a guest on Watch What Happens Live in 2015, a viewer called in to inquire about Selena’s “number one celebrity crush.”
Her response was none other than Captain America himself, and she blushed for the first time since confessing the crush.
“Oh man, he’s either gonna hate me or love me,” she explained to host Andy Cohen after realizing she had exposed her feelings.
He instantly reassured the superstar that Chris would be flattering and would “love” her upon hearing about it. Selena and Chris dating rumors immediately gained traction on social media, with fans excitedly speculating on the romantic status of the two stars.
Selena dated Justin Bieber for years until he called it quits in early 2018, just before he reconnected with Hailey Baldwin and ultimately married her. Recently, she was linked to NBA player Jimmy Butler, with the two said to have gone on a few occasions before calling it quits last year.
Meanwhile, Chris was most recently involved in a relationship with his Gifted co-star, Jenny Slate. The two were together on and off for several years until calling it quits in 2018. He was later spotted getting intimate with Lily James in 2020. However, neither actor addressed reports of a romance at the time.
