Selena Gomez and Zayn Malik reportedly dating after being seen ‘holding hands and kissing’
We didn’t have this one on our 2023 bingo card, but Selena Gomez and Zayn Malik are reportedly dating.
The singers, both 30, are said to have been spotted getting cosy on a date in New York.
Entertainment Tonight reported that they were seen “holding hands and were kissing,” adding that they “were comfortable together and it was clear that it was a date.”
Fanning the flames further was TikToker @klarissa.mpeg who said her friend, a hostess at a restaurant in Manhattan, had claimed they walked into her restaurant “hand in hand making out”.
Only Murders In The Building actress Gomez’s famous list of exes include Justin Bieber and The Weeknd. She has also been linked to Malik’s former One Direction bandmate Niall Horan and was most recently believed to have been seeing Andrew “Drew” Taggart from DJ group The Chainsmokers.

Just last week however she declared herself single on TikTok when she posted a video lip-syncing along to the trending sound: “I hate it when girls are like, ‘Oh my gosh, my crush doesn’t even know that I exist.’ Girl, my crush doesn’t even exist!”
Meanwhile, Dusk Til Dawn singer Malik has been single since his split from model Gigi Hadid in October 2021.
The former couple - who share two-year-old daughter Khai - first got together in 2015 and were on-again-off-again for almost their whole relationship.
Hadid is said to be aware of her ex’s reported new flame and has no issues.
“Gigi has no problem whatsoever with Zayn dating,” a source told Us Weekly. “As long as he is happy and stable and continues to be a good coparent to [their daughter] Khai, she’s fine with whoever he goes out with.”
The Standard has contacted a representative for Zayn Malik and Selena Gomez for comment.
