Selena Gomez may have tried to personally shut down rumors that the Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart is her new boyfriend last month, but sources spoke to Us Weekly and Entertainment Tonight about the two’s ongoing relationship.
A source still described their dynamic as romantic to Us Weekly. “Selena and Drew have an amazing connection,” the source said. “They’re so happy to have gone with their guts and jumped in to give this a try.” The source added that they’re “both very into each other.”
Entertainment Tonight‘s source kept it a little more ambiguous, saying, “Selena and Drew are having a lot of fun together. Drew is really happy around Selena, and Selena is into Drew too. They have connected over their love of music, being in the same industry, and their strong work ethic.”
“Drew appreciates that Selena understands his life,” the source continued. “Things are going well between them.”
On January 18, a source told Entertainment Tonight that Gomez and Taggart were “dating and things are still new. [They] met through mutual friends in a friendly, low-key way, but had an instant connection and liked each other as people.”
The source added that following that meeting, the two “have been talking ever since and they’re into each other. [They’re] having so much fun getting to know one another.”
Gomez and Taggart were photographed holding hands while leaving dinner on January 21. On January 19, Gomez posted and then immediately deleted an Instagram Story with “I like being alone too much,” written on it. She added in her own text box, “#iamsingle.” She has not made any comments on the Taggart dating reports since.
