Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom are still just friends and NOT “hooking up,” despite a new report suggesting otherwise. Gossip Cop can set the record straight.

As Gossip Cop reported, Gomez celebrated the opening night of her “Revival Tour” in Las Vegas on Friday with an after-party at Light Nightclub. We noted that Orlando Bloom was among the pals who joined her. But now the generally-reliable TMZ is twisting the simple hangout into something more than it was.

The site claims Gomez and Bloom “found love in the club — for at least one night — when things got VERY physical.” Calling the night a “hookup,” the outlet notes how they were “all over each other.” But all the photos show, when looked at rationally, is the two longtime friends hugging and leaning in close to talk inside a noisy venue.

And this is no different from years past when previous photos of Gomez and Bloom together have wrongly sparked romance rumors. The continued sightings are not because of a blossoming relationship, but close friendship. And you know what? Friends hang out in public places.

Should Bloom and Gomez’s status actually change in the future, Gossip Cop will update. But from what we’ve gathered, they currently remain just friends.
