“Selena is focusing on her mental health and has been reading, exercising, eating well and spending time with her close friends and family,” a source told the outlet. “She isn’t necessarily looking to date right now.”
Gomez wants time to herself, the source added. “[She’s] paying most of her attention to her own well-being and doesn’t want that infringed upon. She’s great and in a really good place.”
Gomez just returned to Orange County, where she lives in California, after going on her friend Courtney Barry’s bachelorette trip to Cabo. She was photographed yesterday going to a studio there, dressed in a tan coat and black turtleneck. A source told E! earlier this week that the vacation was really great for her. “It was an enjoyable few days for Selena and she seemed to really love being in the sun and just having girl time with her closest friends,” the source said.
Gomez last publicly dated Justin Bieber from October 2017 to the end of February 2018. They spent Valentine’s Day 2018 together. Gomez had been at the Coach show in New York City the day before and flew back to Los Angeles just to be with him for the holiday. The two went to church that night and had a PDA-filled dinner at the Beverly Hills Montage Hotel.
The last update about Gomez’s love life came in August last year—before she took time away in October and November to focus on her mental health. Entertainment Tonight reported then that her friends were trying to set her up. “Selena is such a catch, and her friends want her to be with someone who’s worthy of her,” a source said then. “They really didn’t like Justin and her together. He didn’t appreciate what he had in her.”
But even then, Gomez wasn’t interested in jumping into anything. “She still doesn’t feel ready,” the source said. “She’s been in a relationship for so much of her life, she really is happy embracing the single life and focusing 100 percent on herself.”
