Amid rumors on social media and DeuxMoi that Selena Gomez has been spotted out with 31-year-old Miami Heat NBA player Jimmy Butler, a source spoke to E! about Gomez’s actual relationship status—and confirmed that yes, she and Butler have gone out. They’ve actually had a “few” dates now.
The source explained that they aren’t exclusive at this point. Gomez, 28, is “keeping her options open but has been on a few dates with Jimmy and thinks he’s a great guy.”
“They hung out a few times while Selena was in New York City,” the source continued. “Jimmy asked her to go to dinner and they had a great time. It’s very casual and she’s open to seeing where things go, but isn’t settling down just yet.”
Generally, “[she] is currently single but has recently been more open to dating.”
Rumors about the two being seen together first surfaced on DeuxMoi in mid-November. Two tipster told the outlet, which runs unverified celebrity gossip and allows its readers to decide for themselves what’s true or not, that Gomez and Butler were spotted at the Lucien, a restaurant in New York City’s East Village. Another said they were also seen in Bronxville, New York, a town just north of the city.
Gomez has been in New York City the past couple weeks to film her upcoming Hulu comedy series Only Murders in the Building with Martin Short and Steve Martin. Short told The Daily Beast in August that the series was scheduled to start filming in October.
“It’s supposed to start filming in October, in New York,” he said. “It’s called Only Murders in the Building. And it’s about three people who live in one of those upscale apartment buildings in New York. They see each on the elevator, they kind of nod, but they never really speak. They don’t even know each other’s names. And then you find out that each one of them goes to their individual apartments and just turns on true crime and obsesses. And then one time they’re in the elevator with this fourth person. And they find out that fourth person is killed and they’re determined to solve it. But they make a pact: only murders in the building will they solve. Because they can’t be bothered to go outside.”
