Selena Gomez is NOT having a “revenge romance” with Orlando Bloom, despite a new tabloid version of an old, discredited story claiming the two stars are having a fling in the wake of Gomez’s breakup with Justin Bieber and Bloom’s split from Miranda Kerr. The newest iteration of this false story is being spread by In Touch, an outlet which wrongly claimed just two weeks ago that Gomez had given Bieber a “marriage ultimatum.”

According to a so-called “insider” for the magazine, “Selena and Orlando have been texting for weeks — ever since she and Justin broke up.” When she and Bloom attended the We Day event in Vancouver last week, says the In Touch source, “She made sure to get all dolled up at the salon right before heading on this trip so she could impress him.”

Oh, she got “dolled up” for Bloom? Would she have shown up at the event in a garbage bag and sweat pants if he weren’t there?

“Their timing has never been right, but now that Orlando is single and Selena has split with Justin, it seems like it could be the right time,” explains the In Touch insider. “She’s always talking about how she needs an older, more mature man.” Yeah, and tabloids are still spreading these old stories about Bloom and Gomez.

Bloom himself has shot down the rumored romance. Asked about it as he returned from We Day, the actor flatly denied the regurgitated story, which seems to pop up anytime he and Gomez are in the same time zone. In Touch adds no new evidence and nothing interesting to the narrative. This rumor continues to be 100 percent false.
