Selena Gomez has opened up about her relationship status for the first time in years in a hilarious new approach to her fans. The ex-Disney star recently took to TikTok on Thursday, March 31, to upload a video of her lip-synching to a viral video clip from King Nas.
The video included a man listing compliments to a woman who wasn’t interested in him. Selena captioned the post “Maybe this is why I’m single”. “Don’t believe a damn word,” she added.
A little bit on her past relationships
Selena Gomez has always been the one to keep her personal life lowkey. And this is no exception when it comes to her love life or relationship status. The star’s last high-profile relationship was with 32-year-old musician The Weeknd whom she started dating around January 2017. They made their debut on the red carpet four months later at the Met Gala, but broke up by November of the same year.
Selena Gomez also settled her issues with her on-again and off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber briefly after breaking up with the Starboy singer. The duo started dating in 2011 and had a tumultuous relationship before breaking up in 2018. Justin Bieber then went on to marry supermodel Hailey Baldwin.
Earlier this month she was spotted chilling at a Dua Lipa concert in New York with businessman Zen Matoshi. However, according to E! News, the two were just platonic. “He works in the tech space and has been helping advise Selena,” the insider said. “Selena is happily single right now.”
Selena Gomez values herself over anyone else
She also opened up about the highs and lows that come with relationships. “I think most of my experiences in relationships have been cursed,” she said to Teen Vogue in 2021. “I’ve been way too young to be exposed to certain things when I was in relationships. I guess I needed to find what was that word for me, because I felt so less than in past relationships, and never really felt equal,” she added.
Gomez also opened up about setting off on a healing journey after everything she’s been through. “I’m just really happy with who I am. I’m grateful that as I step into 29 – even just two years ago – I was different,” she said. “It’s only gotten better, and that’s kind of what people say, you know, when you get older, you feel a bit more confident with who you are. I don’t know if that’s gonna be every year for me. Maybe it is. But I just feel like I’m constantly growing in the right direction,” she added.
