Selena Gomez and Justin Theroux rumoured to be more than ‘just friends’

Cape Town - Things between Selena Gomez (25) and Justin Theroux (46) seem to have “turned into something more than a friendship”.

This is according to an article that appeared in Life & Style magazine.

A source told the magazine the two have known each other for years through their manager.

"Initially, they leant on each other for emotional support after going through messy breakups.

"It's turned into something more than friendship. Selena and Justin are falling for each other," the source said.

But it was all speculation at the time, with no confirmation coming from Selena and Justin or their representatives.

While there’s a 20-year age gap between The Leftovers actor and the singer, they have both gone through very public breakups.

Justin split from former Friends actress Jennifer Anniston (49) in February this year, after two years of marriage and almost seven years as a couple.

Selena broke up from on-off boyfriend Justin Bieber (24) in March after a few months of loved-up displays.

Life & Style's source added fuel to the fire by suggesting that Jennifer was "not happy" about the rumoured love connection between her ex and Selena.

According to Daily Mail, the source said Jennifer would be “horrified” if she knew the extent of the relationship.

“She'd think of it as a complete betrayal on both their parts.”

Selena was first friends with Jennifer, who she met in 2009. She even went as far as calling herself “obsessed” with the star.

The insider disclosed to Life & Style that "sparks fly" when Selena and Justin are together.

"They FaceTime and text late at night and have intimate conversations about where they're going in life and their career goals.

"They're extremely honest and open with each other."
