• Selena Gomez and Miami Heat basketball player Jimmy Butler have been hanging out recently.
  • Rumor has it that Sel thinks Jimmy is great but they’re keeping it casual rn!

    Selena Gomez has been a busy bee this year—not only did she release an album (Rare was/is/will continue to be a complete masterpiece, TYVM), but she also launched an entire beauty line and an HBO cooking show! But despite juggling multiple projects, Selena’s still making time to date and was recently spotted getting close with Miami Heat basketball player Jimmy Butler.

    According to E! News, Selena is “keeping her options open but has been on a few dates with Jimmy and thinks he’s a great guy.” Now before you get all excited and jump to dating conclusion, imma stop you right there. The source was clear that “they hung out a few times while Selena was in New York City. Jimmy asked her to go to dinner and they had a great time,” but at the moment “it’s very casual and she’s open to seeing where things go, but isn’t settling down just yet.”

    Just so you have a visual, here’s what Jimmyboy looks like:

    The source also clarified Selena’s dating status for anyone still confused—she’s “currently single but has recently been more open to dating.” FWIW though, “her friends want to set her up all the time but she has loved being single.”

    As fun as Selena and Jimmy’s dates probably are, there are other things Selena’s been understandably more focused on, including her own wellbeing. She to keep a close eye on her health in this pandemic due to her compromised immune system (see: her kidney transplant and lupus diagnosis).

    “Selena has been very careful with her health this year and has barely left her quarantine bubble,” E!’s source shared, adding, “She’s been extremely busy working from home on her new beauty line and is very proud to have launched that during a pandemic. She’s been enjoying cooking at home and only seeing a select few friends and family members regularly.”

    Selena herself said as much during a Rare Beauty Instagram chat with Dr. Vivek Murthy: “In the beginning, I couldn’t deal with it that well. I kind of went into a bit of a depression. And then I started going into a place where I was really writing and being active. I guess it just forced me to have that time.”
