Another day, another rumor. This time, someone decided to make a pretty random claim that Selena Gomez dated JFK’s grandson, John Kennedy Schlossberg, back in 2020—but the actress was quick to set the record straight.

The Only Murders in the Building star took to social media to respond to a fan account’s post about the rumor on April 12, 2024. In the post, the fan account, @feelingsforsel, alleged that several tabloids were claiming that she previously had an “affair” with the former president’s grandson.

“According to a few tabloids @SelenaGomez and John Kennedy Schlossberg had an affair from 2020 to 2021,” the fan account’s post read. “The grandson of the US President John Kennedy promised her the White House and she fell for it.” To be clear, while Schlossberg is JFK’s only grandson, he doesn’t work directly in politics and has no claim to the White House. Instead, he works as a lawyer in New York City.

It’s also worth noting that the fan account didn’t attribute the rumor to any direct sources, making the claim pretty flimsy in the first place. But in case there was any room for doubt, Gomez made it abundantly clear that these rumors are exactly that—just rumors. “Never met this human sorry,” the Wizards of Waverly Place alum, 31, commented on the post. The fan account replied to Gomez’s clarification, writing, “these rumors are CRAZY. well either way love you gurl,” and later shared the exchange on X.

After shutting down the rumors about the unfounded “affair,” Gomez shared a cute snap of her current boyfriend, Benny Blanco, on her Instagram Story. “I love you,” she captioned the snapshot of the music producer kissing her hand in a car. Gomez confirmed that she was in a relationship with Blanco in December 2023 after weeks of speculation. She made the admission by commenting on a post from PopFaction with a headline that read, “Selena Gomez Seemingly Confirms That She Is in a Relationship.” At the time, Gomez simply replied, “Facts.”

She went on to describe Blanco as her “absolute everything in my heart,” before revealing that the pair had been dating for about six months at that point. In response to fan criticism, she also commented, “then why has he been the best thing that’s ever happened to me. The end.”

Since then, the couple have been going strong even as Gomez spends time away from her beau while filming the next season of Only Murders in New York City. “They are so in love,” a source recently told People. “It’s a very serious relationship, and they’re making long distance work while she’s in New York for work commitments.”

The insider went on to add, “Benny makes her feel special and they try to see each other as much as possible. She really does feel like it’s the best she’s ever been treated by a guy, and she’s had a certain glow since they started dating.”
