Just two months after Justin Theroux’s split from Jennifer Aniston, the actor and film producer is rumored to be exchanging flirty texts with Selena Gomez!
Despite the fact that Selena Gomez and Jennifer Aniston are good friends, Theroux is rumored to have romantic feelings for the Wolves singer, who herself is going through a tumultuous break/breakup.
A source told RadarOnline, “It was kind of an open secret that Justin was sweet on Selena when he and Jen hung out with her, (and) to be fair they did get on well but he’s asking for major trouble by trying to hang out with her so soon after his and Jen’s split.”
The source went on to say that Selena is not the type to ignore or ‘blow off’ someone whom she ‘genuinely likes’, so she has been entertaining his texts. The source added that Jennifer Aniston would probably not be pleased with the exchange of texts, since she considers Selena her friend rather than Justin’s.
Just over a month ago, Justin made a shout out to Selena on his Instagram account while visiting an animal shelter in her hometown of Austin, Texas. He added #selenegomez and then a second hashtag in reference to Selena, which read, “Yeah that’s right Selena I did it to you again but if you saw these guys you’d do whatever you could too also I know you’re chill like that.”
We all know Selena loves adopting dogs, since she has done it so many times in the past. Hence, the shout out did not seem very odd. But it did get people talking.
Selena has previously mentioned that she looks up to Jennifer Aniston for motherly advice. She has also expressed that she considers herself a lifelong fan of the Friends star, so it seems unclear as to why the actress would be fooling around with Justin.
Paparazzi have also been actively questioning Selena about Justin Bieber, and she seems to not want to talk about him at all. A recent video shows Selena extremely upset at the mention of him, asking paparazzi to leave her alone for the day.
The verdict is unclear as to whether or not Selena Gomez and Justin Theroux are really into each other. Let’s see if it turns into anything more than harmless flirty texts!
