Selena Gomez: Charlie Puth Is “MY FRIEND Only” (PHOTO)
Selena Gomez wants everyone to know that boys and girls can just be friends, and no, she is not dating Charlie Puth.
Well-aware of the how the gossip industry works, Gomez wisely attempted to shut down rumors when she posted a Twitter photo on Monday with a guy pal. In the shot, Gomez is sitting under a blanket with her hand over her mouth. Her male friend is on a couch next to her, with a bag placed over his head (see below).
So, who’s the mystery man? It’s Puth, the up-and-coming singer best known for “See You Again” with Wiz Khalifa and “Marvin Gaye” with Meghan Trainor. Unsurprisingly, the rumor mill started churning after Puth posted a selfie with Gomez on his Instagram.
A flood of comments led him to delete it, and now Gomez is setting the record straight. “Before it begins, he is a good one. He is MY FRIEND only lol,” she tweeted with her photo. For his part, Puth tweeted, “she’s just my friend guys lol relax.”
Gomez is all-too-familiar with how the littlest gestures can spark tabloid stories, much like Gossip Cop debunked Nick Jonas reunion rumors after they were spotted having dinner together this summer. It’s actually kind of sad that Gomez has to purposefully try to squash something like this, rather than being free to go about her everyday life without speculation.
