On Saturday, April 26, Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom attended the Chelsea Handler concert together. Sources say the two “friends” arrived at the concert in the same car, and they were later spotted getting cozy. After the concert was over, Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom left together, which has everybody wondering if they hooked up or if they are really just friends.
This is not the first time Gomez and Bloom have attended an event together. On March 26, they both appeared at the We Day California Conference. After giving an inspirational speech, Gomez, Bloom, and Seth Rogen talked backstage and posed for pictures. Seems innocent enough right – not so much. When Gomez’s on again off again boyfriend, Justin Bieber, saw the pictures on Instagram later that day, he went ballistic. To say the least, he did not like his girl being hugged up with Bloom.
Supposedly, Gomez and Bloom are nothing more than friends; however, some believe there could be more to it because they seem way too comfy and cozy with each other just to be friends. In fact, some people say that they appeared to be on a date when they went to the Chelsea Handler concert and, considering that they left the concert together, there was definitely an opportunity for them to have hooked up.
However, just because Gomez and Bloom had an opportunity to hook up does not mean they actually did anything and, even if they did, what difference does it make? They are both single and consenting. In the event they did hook up, maybe this was Gomez’s way of getting back at Bieber for getting a little too close for comfort with Bloom’s ex-wife Miranda Kerr in 2012 when he appeared at a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. At the time, Bieber and Kerr were photographed smiling and flirting and the rumor was that they actually hooked up after the show.
Gomez has been going through some changes lately and has been acting a little strange. Earlier this year, she spent two weeks in rehab at the Dawn at the Meadows treatment facility in Arizona, and since then, she has been weeding people out of her life. Not only did she and longtime pal Taylor Swift end their friendship, but Gomez has also pushed others that she refers to as being toxic out of her life. After being photographed with the Jenner sisters earlier this month at Coachella, where they were seen laughing and appeared to be having a good time together, Gomez abruptly cut ties with the sisters by unfollowing them on Instagram and deleted all their pictures. Sources say Gomez may have parted ways with the Jenner sisters because she believes Bieber has cheated on her with Kylie.
It seems as though there are many issues going on in Gomez’s life at the moment. While it is not certain if Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom hooked up over the weekend, one thing is for sure: it will be interesting to find out what Justin Bieber has to say when he finds out that Gomez has been spending time with Bloom. It is safe to say he will not be happy when he hears about it.
