Summer is in full swing and romance is in the air – for Selena Gomez and Ed Sheeran, at least. The two have reportedly began “hooking up”, according to a story by Us Magazine. It looks like Selena’s turbulent on-again-off-again relationship with Justin Bieber is now firmly in the past. According to the source for Us, Sheeran and Gomez got acquainted over Memorial Day weekend, via mutual pal Taylor Swift, with whom Sheeran is currently touring. Just a few days earlier, at the MuchMusic Awards on June 16th, Sheeran commented for Us Magazine that he was single, but he also mentioned that he “wouldn’t complain” if he was set up with the Spring Breakers star.


Then again, it might be good to take reports of the British singer's love life with a grain of salt. Sheeran has been linked to a number of young ladies in showbusiness recently, including gal pal Swift herself. He has subsequently denied all reports that the two were dating.

At this point Gomez is completely free to return the advances of the A Team singer, since her rocky relationship with Justin Bieber, with whom she broke up for the first time in December of last year, is now completely over. Many people seemed to misinterpret the scene when Gomez was caught giving her ex a peck on the cheek backstage at the Billboard Music Awards, including possibly Taylor Swift, who was caught sticking out her tongue at the sight. According to the magazine’s source however, that was only a friendly gesture and Gomez is currently single. Or maybe not so single anymore.
