Selena Gomez and Zayn Malik "kissed" over dinner, sparking relationship rumors 2023 2

Selena Gomez and Zayn Malik were observed sharing a meal.

TikTok user @klarissa.mpeg published screenshots of a text discussion with a friend in a now-viral video, with the friend claiming that she was the pair’s hostess at an undisclosed restaurant in the city. This sparked conjecture about the two. She also said that she witnessed Zayn Malik and Selena Gomez holding hands at their supper.

Now, according to Entertainment Tonight, Selena was seen on a dinner date with the former One Direction member in New York City on Thursday night. According to an eyewitness who contacted the news source, “Last night, about 10:30 p.m., Selena and Zayn were seen in SoHo, New York City.

They entered the room holding hands and kissed. The majority of restaurant personnel and patrons did not notice them. It appeared like they were at ease with one another, and it was evident that they were on a date.”

Selena just became the first woman to exceed 400 million Instagram followers, overtaking Kylie Jenner (382 million followers) to become the most-followed woman on the social media network. “I wish I could embrace all 400 million of you,” she posted on Instagram to commemorate her achievement.

This occurred before the present ‘eyebrow’ issue between Selena and Justin Bieber’s wife, Hailey Bieber. Selena broke her silence over the rumors and denounced the murder threats made towards Hailey. Selena and Hailey are now each other’s Instagram followers.

Moreover, Hailey issued a comment on her Instagram Stories “Things may always be taken out of context or interpreted contrary to their original meaning. Everyone, including myself, has to be more cautious about what they publish and say.”

Neither Selena nor Zayn have acknowledged their connection as of yet. Khai is the daughter of Zayn Malik and his ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid. In October of last year, Zayn and Gigi split up following a fight between Zayn and Gigi’s mother Yolanda Hadid.

Selena, who was recently connected to The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart, updated her relationship status on TikTok last week to indicate that she is single. She lip-synced to an audio that stated, “I detest it when ladies are like, ‘Oh my god, my crush has no idea who I am.'” “The object of my affection doesn’t even exist!” She said in the caption, “Still out there looking for him haha”
