Zayn Malik and Selena Gomez, are they dating?

Following reports that the two music artists, both 30 years old, went out to dine together in New York City, romance rumours have started to circulate.

When an anonymous user uploaded a text chat with a buddy who claimed to be the pair’s hostess at an undisclosed restaurant in the city, word of their adventure quickly spread on TikTok.

She provided a snapshot of their text exchange, in which the friend wrote: “Tell me how Selena Gomez and Zayn just walked into [restaurant] hand in hand making love and I seated them.” She then explained that she and her buddy work at celeb-favourite hot spots.

Reps from Selena and Zayn have recently confirmed that the two are indeed an item and are “very happy together.”
