Selena and Drew enjoyed a romantic dinner at Torrisi Bar & Restaurant in Soho before they left with their fingers interlaced, according to Us Weekly.

It was their second date in one week as the pair reportedly knocked down some pins at a bowling alley a few days before, leading Gomez to declare ‘#iamsingle’ in a since-deleted Instagram post.

Rampant speculation had been swirling around the pair, causing Gomez to confront the rumors head-on earlier by sharing an image of a cloudy sky, which showed the face of an unidentified man standing in front of a tall hill, looking down.

‘I like being alone too much,’ Gomez wrote over the scenic snap, adding ‘#iamsingle’ to drive home her point and shut down the rumors.

Her post came after Us Weekly reported that she and the Closer crooner weren’t ‘trying to hide their romance by sneaking around at members-only clubs.’

The couple’s romance was described as ‘very casual and low-key,’ with a source claiming that their dates consisted of ‘bowling and [going] to the movies.

A source further revealed: ‘Selena and Drew have an amazing connection. They’re so happy to have gone with their guts and jumped in to give this a try.’

The insider continued by saying that they are ‘both very into each other,’ adding that Selena thinks Drew is ‘such a nice guy,’ and she ‘loves that’ about him.

The Only Murders in the Building Actress and the Something Just Like This singer reportedly keep their dates very mellow, with the insider adding that the ‘couple is having a lot of fun’ together.

Before dating the Wizards of Waverly Place alum, Drew was reportedly dating Eve Jobs, the youngest daughter of Steve Jobs.

The relationship began as a ‘casual summer fling’ but fizzled out after a few months before he pursued Selena, leading Eve to mysteriously deactivate her Instagram.

The My Mind & Me hitmaker famously dated Justin Bieber on and off from 2011 to 2018 and had short-lived relationships with Niall Horan, Charlie Puth, and The Weeknd.

Selena’s new makeup-free selfies come after her social media followers pointed out that her hands were ‘shaking’ in a recent makeup tutorial, forcing Gomez to reiterate that she has lupus.

The My Mind & Me star shared a clip to TikTok last month where she showed off her makeup and skincare routine, but at one point in the video her hands appeared to be unsteady.

Gomez later clarified that the shakeness was indeed a side effect brought on by her lupus medication, commenting: ‘Lol I shake because of my medication for lupus. Also read my disclaimer. I ain’t no pro [laughing face emoji].’

The Calm Down singer was diagnosed with lupus back in 2014 and was forced to undergo a kidney transplant in 2017 because of the disease.

In an interview with Jay Shetty, Selena opened up about loving others and loving herself, saying: ‘Being in moments in my life, whether it was my health or personal life, friendships, relationships, I feel like giving myself completely to something is just the best way I can love.

She added: ‘But I never wanted the pain that I endured to put some sort of guard on myself and armour, if you will. And I never, I never let that happen because I still believe, and I still hope, I hope for love, and I hope for healing, and I hope for change.’

Gomez went on to declare that she ‘would rather continue to get my heart broken than to not feel at all,’ and described how a ‘super public’ breakup helped her to gain confidence.

The Love You Like a Love Song singer said: ‘I would probably say I started beginning to gain that confidence when I went through a breakup, and that’s something that was super public…’

Selena described how she wanted to ‘debunk’ why she was feeling ‘so bad’ about herself, and said that ‘the greatest gift’ from that process was ‘actually being honest with people.’

She said: ‘I wanted to take control over that narrative because I did feel that way. But the greatest gift I got from all of that was me actually being honest with people. sharing my story, and gaining the confidence to know I am enough…’

Selena went on to say that she works ‘really hard at being a good person,’ and discussed turning pain, loss, and hardship into positive learning experiences.

‘I always say that there’s blessing in the breaking and every moment that you encounter in your life,’ she said. There is no perfect way to heal. There is no perfect way of dealing with something.’
