Selena Gomez's dating history is a colorful one, and prior to revealing her new relationship with Benny Blanco in December 2023, she had been happily single for quite some time.

In summer 2022, the singer-actress-producer threw herself a huge party for her 30th birthday, telling Rolling Stone, "I thought I would be married by now, so I threw myself a wedding." Atta girl!

In January 2020, Gomez revealed that she genuinely loved the single life. "I love going to my room at the end of the day. Just me and my dog. I got the full granny panties situation, stretched out in my bed," she told WSJ Magazine. "I've been single for over two years now ... I'm OK with that." Almost four years later—for a total of about six years—Gomez is in love again.

Let's take a look back at her love life up to this point: This is the full Selena Gomez boyfriends list and dating history (that we know of!)—basically, a list of truly lucky dudes.

Is Selena Gomez in a relationship?

As of this writing in December 2023, Selena Gomez is in a relationship with music producer Benny Blanco, with whom, she collaborated on the track "I Can't Get Enough" in 2019. In one of her seemingly relentless cycles of responding to fan comments and then leaving Instagram, she told one of her Selenators of Blanco, "He is my absolute everything in my heart." She also posted a selfie with him on her Instagram Story and said in another comment that they'd been secretly dating for about six months up to that point.

Prior to romancing Blanco, Gomez was simply busy loving herself. And good for her! That said, it's rumored among Selenators that she was dating Nicola Peltz Beckham's older brother Bradley Peltz—but other reports also had her linked to The Chainsmokers' Drew Taggart. Taggart was recently dating Steve Jobs' daughter, model Eve Jobs, but they reportedly had an amicable split ... and she deleted her entire Instagram account amid the rumors of his dating the former Wizards of Waverly Place star.

A source told Entertainment Tonight in December 2022, “Selena is feeling positive and optimistic. She is open to dating.”

Meanwhile, Gomez has been hanging out with Brooklyn Beckham and his heiress-actress wife so much that she joked they're a "throuple."

Is Selena Gomez with Benny Blanco?

She is! Gomez and Blanco have been together for about six months as of December 2023. The signs were there, too, as Blanco attended Gomez's Rare Impact Fund benefit in October 2023, but as the pair were prior collaborators, no one thought much of it at the time, especially since they didn't pose together for photos.

Gomez gushed that Blanco is "the best thing that's ever happened to [her]" and that he's "better than anyone [she's] ever been with." Blanco hasn't commented on their relationship.

Is Selena Gomez back with Justin Bieber?

Jelena is dead, kids. Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are not together and likely will never be together again—especially considering he's married to Hailey Bieber right now. In fact, Gomez and Hailey have a cordial relationship now themselves, so it's unlikely she'd engage in that mess ever again.

Who are Selena Gomez's ex-boyfriends?

Gomez has been linked to Taylor Lautner, Nick Jonas, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Zedd, Charlie Puth, Samuel Krost, Niall Horan and Orlando Bloom. That said, she has only ever confirmed four of those rumored relationships—keep reading to find out who was the real deal.

Who was Selena Gomez in a relationship with for 10 years?

Gomez's longest relationship was with Justin Bieber. The couple were on-again-off-again for a total of eight years. As far as the world knows, she hasn't been with anyone for a decade's time—yet!

Was Nick Jonas in a relationship with Selena Gomez?

Gomez met Nick Jonas when they were both Disney Channel stars, she on Wizards of Waverly Place and he on J.O.N.A.S., and they dated circa 2008. Jonas, who had previously made plenty of headlines during his relationship with Miley Cyrus, was very keen on keeping their brief romance under wraps. In a 2018 radio segment, Jonas and Gomez joked about a particularly awkward date they had back in the day. It began when Gomez called in and asked Jonas if he remembered her first trip to New York City's Central Park.

"This was at a time where my brothers and I were a boy band, and we were in Central Park, and we were very private about our relationship, and she was unhappy that her Central Park experience was ruined by the fact that I walked about 20 feet away from her," Jonas recalled in the clip. "Even though [the paparazzi] were taking pictures of us and obviously we were there together, I was like, 'It'd be better if we stood about 25 feet apart.' So it ruined her Central Park experience. So her and Taylor Swift—who was dating my brother Joe, but we never confirmed it—walked 25 feet behind us as we walked through the park by ourselves."

The romance was short-lived, but Gomez became BFFs with Swift thanks to their JoBros connection, so it's safe to say everything worked out for the best.

Did Selena Gomez and Taylor Lautner date?

In 2009, Gomez briefly dated Taylor Lautner. The pair met while Gomez was filming Ramona and Beezus and Lautner was shooting The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Unfortunately, the relationship didn't get too high off the ground when fan and media speculation led to its end. Gomez explained to Seventeen, "Kristen [Stewart] was staying in my hotel. [Lautner] would visit her, so we were constantly running into each other in the lobby—and we ended up meeting. We would go out to lunch and dinner, but I knew he had paparazzi following him and I had paparazzi following me. So we literally just wanted to hang out, go bowling and stuff, and it went a little too far, I think. People were getting a little crazy about us." She added, "But it was fun—I went to Vancouver thinking I was going to focus on my work, but instead I got to meet him, and it ended up being the best thing ever."

Lautner is one more thing Gomez has in common with bestie Swift: Swift met Lautner while co-starring in 2010 ensemble rom-com Valentine'sDay, in which she played his love interest. The pair dated offscreen for several months, and he's rumored to have inspired her hit "Back to December."

When did Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber date?

By far Gomez's most well-known, highly publicized and tumultuous relationship was with Justin Bieber. The pair formerly known as "Jelena" were first spotted together on a pancake date in December 2010 and went public at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in February 2011. They spent the next several years hitting up red carpets and making adorable appearances on one another's social media feeds, but split up and made up several times.

Their first publicized breakup was in November 2012, allegedly after Bieber was busted flirting with some of the Victoria's Secret Angels at and after that year's fashion show. By May 2013, they were friendly enough to kiss backstage at the Billboard Music Awards, much to Swift's chagrin:

In 2014, the couple were off and on between April and October, then were seemingly dunzo—but by October 2017, they were reunited once more. The exes were spotted going to church and breakfast together, going on bike rides and smooching at Biebs' hockey games. Gomez even accompanied Bieber to his father's wedding in Jamaica in February 2018, but by March 2018, Jelena were over for good (so far).

In 2019, Gomez released her hit "Lose You to Love Me" about giving up on Bieber (who quickly moved on with and married Hailey Baldwin). She told NPR of the track, "I'm very proud of it. It has a different meaning to me now from when I wrote it. I felt I didn't get a respectful closure, and I had accepted that, but I know I needed some way to just say a few things that I wish I had said. It's not a hateful song; it's a song that is saying—I had something beautiful and I would never deny that it wasn't that. It was very difficult and I'm happy it's over. And I felt like this was a great way to just say, you know, it's done, and I understand that, and I respect that, and now here I am stepping into a whole other chapter."

She added that she was a survivor of "a certain [emotional] abuse" in the relationship, explaining, "I had to find a way to understand it as an adult. And I had to understand the choices I was making. As much as I definitely don't want to spend the rest of my life talking about this, I am really proud that I can say I feel the strongest I've ever felt and I've found a way to just walk through it with as much grace as possible."

Did Zedd and Selena Gomez date?

Gomez and Zedd collaborated on his 2015 song "I Want You to Know"—and their relationship blurred the lines between professional and personal. They tried to keep their romance private, but to no avail. Zedd lamented to Billboard later, "Reporters were calling my parents. People were hacking my friends' phones. I was pissed. [Though] I kind of knew what I was getting myself into. She is one of the most talked about people in the world, but I had no idea how much that would change my life."

Did Selena Gomez and Niall Horan date?

Gomez and Niall Horan (formerly of One Direction) were rumored to have had a fling. Spies told E! News in 2015 that they were seen making out at a birthday party for Jenna Dewan, but the pair have always insisted they're just friends.

Were Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom dating?

Gomez and Orlando Bloom were first rumored to be a "thing" back in 2014 during one of her off-again periods with Justin Bieber—who himself was rumored to have hooked up with Bloom's ex Miranda Kerr. Bloom and Gomez were also linked in 2016. However, Gomez and Bloom's current fiancée Katy Perry each poo-pooed the talk on Twitter as a "conspiracy" and not anything to be taken seriously.

Are Selena Gomez and Charlie Puth dating?

Who knew? Apparently, Gomez briefly dated singer Charlie Puth, but no one really knew about it until he revealed that she broke his heart. The pair collaborated on the 2016 hit "We Don't Talk Anymore," and Gomez referred to him during a live performance as one of her "best friends."

Puth, who recorded the track with Gomez in 2015, told Billboard that the relationship was "very short-lived, very small, but very impactful ... It really messed me up." He added, "It wasn't like I was the only person on her mind. And I think I knew that going in—what I was getting myself into."

"It's about a particular moment in my life, when someone very close to me wanted the attention of somebody else," Puth continued. "When I found that out and we ended it, I might have done some shady things too, and she might have asked me, 'How long has this been going on? I don't kiss and tell, but the only way a song like that can come across as real is if there's something else going on behind the scenes."

That's a lot of detail for a guy who literally just said he doesn't kiss and tell!

Did Selena Gomez date Samuel Krost?

In late 2015 and early 2016, Gomez was spotted holding hands with fashion designer and Fyre Festival talent booker (and friend of one Gigi Hadid) Samuel Krost. Gomez insisted she was single during this period, but after they split, Krost confirmed that they had, in fact, been an item, writing on Instagram (then deleting) in August 2016, "Selena is a real girl with a real heart and real feelings. All you superficial who are just unhappy with your love lives, understand that love is real. Although we have ventured on separate paths, at least I know that love exists. I love you, Sel." You can see Krost with Gomez and pals below.

They made their red carpet debut at the Met Gala in May 2017.

By that October, however, they called it quits—right around the time Gomez was spotted with ex Bieber again. (Don't feel bad for The Weeknd—he also rebounded with an ex, Bella Hadid.)

Did Selena Gomez and Chris Evans ever date?

In 2015, Gomez confirmed she thought Captain America star Chris Evans was a hunk (because, well, who doesn't?).

“I kind of have a crush on Chris Evans. Isn’t he cute?” she said on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. “He’s very cute … maybe it’s meant to be! Oh man, he’s either going to hate me or love me."

In October 2021, the Internet went nuts when Evans was reportedly spotted at the same restaurant as Gomez. However, the pics of Evans and Gomez on an alleged date turned out to be from different places and even different years. Translation: It didn't happen!

That said, when the rumor mill began to buzz more loudly, Evans followed Gomez on Instagram (she didn’t follow him back, but has also said for years that her team handles her social media). Later that month, fans speculated that a brunette who in a reflection during a video of Evans at the piano in an Instagram story might have been Gomez. (Of course, it could literally be any other brunette on the planet, too.) Later, Gomez was spotted in a cream-colored cable-knit sweater similar to Evans' famous one from Knives Out in an Instagram video with her BFF Taylor Swift. Some swore it was a coded message that they were dating, but more likely than not, Gomez just wanted to rock a cozy top. It ain't that deep, kids!

Did Selena Gomez and Tyga date?

Gomez was linked to Kylie Jenner's ex, rapper Tyga, in summer 2022. The reason? Someone spotted Tyga and Gomez leaving a restaurant through different exits at the same time. However, sources made it clear that there was nothing romantic happening between them, noting that they just happened to be at the Nice Guy—a famous hotspot for celebrities—at the same time to hang out with different people, though their respective groups did briefly mingle throughout the evening.
