Selena Gomez and Soccer Superstar Neymar Jr. Spotted at Same Hotel -- What's Really Going On
By Antoinette Bueno
Selena Gomez and soccer pro Neymar Jr. would make for one glamorous pair in the Big Apple.
The 23-year-old singer and the 24-year-old FC Barcelona captain were spotted leaving Midtown NYC Hotel on Wednesday just five minutes apart -- a common trick for new couples trying to keep their budding romance on the down-low. Neymar Jr. came out first, accompanied by a bodyguard, casually dressed in a gray shirt and black pants.
Gomez followed shortly after and chose to use the side door rather than the front, wearing a blue floral dress and sunglasses.
But, sorry, fans wishing for a Gomez-Neymar Jr. relationship. Though the two would make a pretty cute couple, a source tells ET that they only met on Wednesday, and are definitely not hooking up.
But the two also hung out together at celeb hot spot Up & Down nightclub in New York City later that night, where Joe Jonas was also in attendance. The Brazilian soccer star snapped a selfie with the DNCE lead singer -- the band is Gomez's opening act on tour -- and posted it on Snapchat, though he was more low-key about spending time with Gomez.
The former Disney star is in NYC for the latest stop on her Revival tour, and played a show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Neymar Jr. is in town to promote his new Jordan collection with Nike. The Jordan Brand released a Neymar edition of the Jordan V Low sneaker, and he met basketball legend Michael Jordan himself on Wednesday to celebrate the launch.
Last month, the "Hands to Myself" singer said she's dating, but admitted she has some trust issues.
"I've been dating. I've been having the best time," Gomez told Marie Claire, also admitting she has a weakness for "bad boys." "But I don't trust anybody, so dating can only be fun if I know I'm going to have fun."
"[We're holding auditions] maybe not for the squad, necessarily, but boyfriend material is always good… none of them are single, just so you know," Selena told Capital FM's Roman Kemp. "Taylor is not single, Gigi [Hadid] is not single, neither is Kendall [Jenner]. I am the only single one!"
