4. An Insider Tells Hollywood Life That the Two Are Just Friends
Though we believe these two have romance on their minds, a source tells Hollywood Life that Gomez is “just friends” with Krost. The source stated:
The pictures of [Selena Gomez] and Samuel may have looked more romantic than they really were, those two are well and truly in the friend zone. After being introduced to Samuel by their mutual pal Gigi Hadid last year, [Selena Gomez] maintained a friendship with him because she thinks he’s so entertaining and funny. But she isn’t attracted to him in anyway, she just loves his company.
Maybe the couple started off as just friends, but all the hand-holding and hanging out leads us to believe there’s much more to their friendship these days.
