If rumors are to be believed, Chris Evans is dating Selena Gomez. Over the past week or so, Captain America started following the 29-year-old singer and on Instagram.
The theory of Chris Evans dating Selena Gomez surfaced when some on Twitter claimed that the two were seen leaving the same studio and restaurant at different times in tweets posted on October 1.
However, the paparazzi photos of them in the alleged same locations are actually old shots of Gomez. One is of her leaving a studio in October 2019, and another is of her leaving pilates in November 2017. And as for Evans, one is of him from summer 2020 when he was with then-rumored flame Lily James in London, and another is of him from October 2013.
Although Evans did recently follow Gomez on Instagram, she has not followed him back as yet. The two have never been photographed together nor are they in any announced projects together currently.
While there is currently no evidence or confirmation that Evans and Gomez are dating, she did consider him her celebrity crush at one point.
“I kind of have a crush on Chris Evans,” Gomez said on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen in 2015. “Isn’t he cute? He’s very cute.”
Selena Gomez has been single lately.
She previously opened up about her single status earlier this year after rumors swirled that she was dating her Only Murders in the Building costar Aaron Dominguez.
“We had just started working together,” the Texas native told the Los Angeles Times in an interview published in March. “I honestly thought, ‘No wonder guys don’t want to date me!’ I think people only care because I’m young, and the older I get the less they’ll care. For now, it’s a part of the job that I don’t really like.”
“I’m actually grateful that I’m not involved with anyone right now,” she continued at the time.
In June, a source spoke to Entertainment Tonight about why Gomez wasn’t looking for a serious boyfriend at the time. “Selena is very traditional, she would love to find ‘her person’ and get married and have a family one day,” the source said. “[But] she is not looking for something serious now and is in no rush to settle down as her priority continues to be her health, career and philanthropy work. She has worked so hard on her physical and mental health over the past few years, and she knows she must be the healthiest version of herself if she’s going to share her life with someone else, so she will only get involved in a serious relationship when she feels ready.”
The MCU star, for his part, was linked to Jenny Slate after they met on the set of Gifted in 2016 before they eventually split in March 2018. Earlier this year, Evans made headlines after exchanging flirty social media messages with Lizzo.
