Is Chris Evans Dating Selena Gomez?
Meanwhile, Chris Evans and Selena Gomez are plagued with dating rumors lately after they were, reportedly, seen together recently. The speculations started after the Avengers star followed the Disney alum on Instagram.
Though avid followers of the two Hollywood stars said that they are following each other, eagle-eyed fans noticed that the former girlfriend of Justin Bieber does not follow Chris on the said social media platform. A number of Selena's fans also shared snaps of them, claiming that they were seen at the same locations at the same time.
One netizen, as per Daily Mail, posted snaps of Selena Gomez and Chris Evans with the caption:
"EXCLUSIVE: Chris Evans and Selena Gomez was spotted leaving the same restaurant, the two superstars started following each other recently on IG too. Rumours been saying that they're dating!"
However, it was learned that the photos were actually taken at different times and locations. Another fan account of Selena shared separate photos of the Monte Carlo star and Chris Evans with the caption:
"EXCLUSIVE: Chris Evans and Selena Gomez seen leaving the same studio in LA (Oct.1st). Rumours are that the two superstars are working together in an upcoming film after they started following each other on Instagram."
It was later revealed that Selena Gomez was, actually, spotted leaving a recording studio on Oct. 1, 2019, while Chris Evans was snapped in London sometime in July 2020. Most, if not all, fans can recall that the "Who Says" singer named Chris as her number one Hollywood crush during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen in 2015.
Selena Gomez and Chris Evans have yet to comment on these dating reports. However, since the romance speculations were purely based on edited photos and there are no enough pieces of evidence to prove that these hearsays are true, fans should take these unverified reports lightly until everything is proven true and correct.
