L&S: Justin Theroux & Selena Gomez might be happening now, very quietly


Hey, remember how Justin Theroux dumped his wife on her birthday and suddenly couldn’t shut up about how edgy he is? Whatever happened to that?!? It feels like no one is really talking about Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston and their divorce drama now. Is there even divorce drama? Meaning, were those two even legally married, and if they weren’t, is that why there’s been no actual legal drama? I have no idea, but I do have to wonder why People Magazine and TMZ aren’t on the case. Meanwhile, Edgy Justin has some edginess with various women. There was Petra Collins, who is or was one of Selena Gomez’s best friends. Selena, Justin and Jennifer Aniston also share a manager. And Selena and Jennifer are quite friendly too. So… would Selena actually carry on some kind of relationship with Justin??

They started out as friends. Now, Life & Style has exclusively learned, Justin and Selena’s relationship has taken an unexpected turn into something more serious.

“They’ve known each other for years through their manager,” a source explains to Life & Style. “Initially, they leaned on each other for emotional support after going through messy breakups.”

Justin announced his split from wife Jennifer Aniston in February while Selena parted ways — again — with pop star Justin Bieber in March. In recent weeks, though, “they’ve become closer than ever,” says the source. “It’s turned into something more than friendship.” Despite a 21-year age difference (he’s 46, she’s 25!), says an insider, “Selena and Justin are falling for each other.”

Friends think that’s a mistake — and warn that if Justin and Selena become a full-fledged couple, it will end badly. Selena, Justin and Jen all share the same manager, Aleen Keshishian — and Jen, who views Selena as a friend is already aware that her ex and the pop star-actress have been hanging out. “Jen,” the source tells Life & Style, “is not happy about it.” After all, Jen wasn’t just a friend to Selena, “she was a mentor” the source says.

[From Life & Style]

Point: Selena does seem to have a genuine warmth towards Jennifer Aniston. Counterpoint: I think Selena is messy enough to throw aside girl code for a man. Point: Justin is Mr. Edgy and Selena really isn’t. Counterpoint: she’s 25, and maybe that “edgy” enough for Mr. Mid-Life Crisis. Point: Would Selena be *that* messy? Counterpoint: Yes.

    Ew. Ew. All the ew. Did I say ew? Because…ew!

    Poor Selena, she seems to have extremely questionable taste in men and Justin just skeeves me out.

    • Josie says:

      My thoughts exactly, the age difference is just off, plus Selena looks younger.When I was 26, a guy over 35 was decrepit – maybe after the whole Bieber saga she wants someone more mature 😉

      • DearWhitePeople says:

        She may be easy to MANipulate, but I don’t see HER attraction to edgy- then again he has those spindly legs a la the Beb, hmmm.

    • Sherry says:

      You took the Ew right out of my mouth! Ewwwwww!

    • MamaHoneyBadger says:

      Came here to say “Ew.” Leaving satisfied.

    • Chaine says:

      Not sure about men as a whole but she definitely has questionable taste in Justins.

  2. Alexandria says:

    Wow she has erhm a weird picker.

  3. David says:

    21 year age gap….. Yikes

    • Isabelle says:

      The Hipster in Justin will win out over his ewwwww…..you know he will get dragged in those “cool” hispter circles for dating someone that young. He is so thirsty.

    • aang says:

      It’s not the age gap per se but the fact that she looks much younger than her true age, and he looks a bit older than he really is. It looks gross.

      • Brian says:

        This has always bothered me about her (and I know she can’t help it): her child-face. It’s…sooo distracting. No matter the makeup she looks 12 in the face and 25 in the body. I can’t.

  4. Dorothy#1 says:

    Through no fault of her own she looks underage. And he’s just so gross. I hope this isnt true.

    • L84Tea says:

      This! She looks about 15 years old to me. There is so much ICK to this that I can’t even handle it.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      My first reaction was:
      -her perspective: he’s old and wrinkly ( and has saggy, um, you knows) ** disclaimer-Mr. & I are in our 50s**
      -his perspective: how can you boink someone who is 20+ years younger AND has a permanent toddler face??????????????????

      I think it is b.s.

  5. smee says:

    ewwww – he looks like a lizard, an OLD lizard, in the top photo. The age difference is huge – he’s just on the hunt for young thangs. She has criminally bad taste in men. Hope this is just a ploy to sell mags…..

    • Maum says:

      I read that as young thighs…. 🙂

    • Brian says:

      I actually think Justin is quite attractive (have since Mulholland Drive), but his style is too much for me. and the TRY. THE TRY.

    • Kosmos says:

      UGH I didn’t even find Justin interesting when he first met Jennifer!! I thought, Oh, she can do much better than this guy…who is he, anyway? But all that is now history and we know who he is, and yes, it was a mistake for her to take up with him. He needs to stay the he** away from L.A. and stick to his edgy NYC. And NO, if I were Selena, I wouldn’t take him seriously at all, nor date him. Maybe she has a low sense of self-esteem and needs the approval of men? I hope not, and I hope not him, and I say the same thing for Emma Stone, who is supposedly connecting with him….I just think he’s a commitment phobe and decides to leave after he’s had the best of the woman. He did that to Heidi, and then to Jennifer, so he can still have a new woman to romance for a few years until that becomes familiar and he can move on again. RUN women…..

  6. Darla says:

    Wow. I have a large and long time circle of girlfriends, and we call women who do this “garbagepickers”. Because they pick through their friends’ garbage. It’s a big no-no in my circle. But…whatever I guess.

    • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

      Are Jennifer and Selena friends though? I think it was a few years ago? Maybe during Jennifer’s Oscar attempt that she and Selena hugged at a few awards shows. I don’t even think they have ever worked together before.

      She’s 25 and has been on/off with Bieber of all people, so her picker isn’t amazing.

      • K-Peace says:

        Yes, they are friends. I’ve read articles talking about their friendship–about how Selena goes over to Jen’s house to hang out & how Jen gives her “maternal” advice. They seem to care for each other quite a bit. (or at least they did in the recent past.) I remember thinking that their friendship seemed to be a very positive thing for Selena.–Because Jennifer has always seemed to at least be a very stable individual, and I think Selena could use some stability in her life.

    • monette says:

      I love this! I shall use it…with your permission.

  7. Veronica S. says:

    Should she? No. Would she? Probably. I like Selena, but that woman has terrible taste in men.

  8. Jenns says:

    I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I bet Mr. Edgy loves the tabloid attention. He used Jennifer for a career boost, so I’m sure he’s looking for the next woman to up his public profile.

  9. VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

    This story is happening probably because he’s shared IG posts supporting fostering dogs–I think the animal shelter, etc is in her hometown (in Texas) and one that she also supports. Call me when there’s something concrete.

    • Sullivan says:

      Yeah, I agree. Nothing to see here.

    • mia girl says:

      I’m with you. I’m more a doubter than a believer at this point.

    • lucy2 says:

      Is that all it is?
      Good grief.

      • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

        As far as I know. I haven’t seen any pics of them actually hanging out recently. I think there might have been one a ways back, at an afterparty or awards show…..but mainly that’s it. Justin has shared her favorite animal shelter to her IG followers a few times.

        I’m wondering if this is cropping up because she’s “off” with Bieber again. I saw that story a few weeks ago.

      • NoShame says:

        They were photographed hanging out a week ago.

    • Jussie says:

      Yep, and he always tags her (and has done for ages) because she’s so huge on Insta that it’s a massive signal boost.

      The tabloids have been trying to spin a story around that for like 3 years.

  10. C-Shell says:

    Well, it *is* Life & Style. Not that it isn’t true, but I think I’ll wait.

    • minx says:

      Just what I was going to say. They had Aniston pregnant every six months.

    • Marie says:

      Yes to this. I’ll withhold my judgment until People makes an announcement. Or until they go “social media official”.

  11. Honest B says:

    This sounds like a made up story to me.

  12. Carol Hill says:

    Why are we talking about Selena being messy? Justin is the one with the guilty conscience. He was married to Jen, not Selena. Why aren’t we saying that Justin is being messy?

    • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

      Especially since he is very clearly/publicly separated from Jennifer………..and Selena is not one of Jennifer’s friends. IF this was happening. I doubt it is. I said on the upthread, the only connection between them I’ve seen is that Justin has shared pics of dogs/pit bulls and various shelters…one of which is in the hometown of Selena Gomez (and tagged her in it)……telling people to adopt dogs and donate to no kill shelters. I’m not with him on gung ho adopting pit bulls….but this is like the one thing I can’t criticize this douchenozzle for.

    • otaku fairy says:

      Agreed. Even if Selena and this Justin were an item- he and Jen are broken up. Neither ex has a say in who can or can’t bang the other person anymore. It would be cringe if Selena and Jen were relatives. But they’re friends who met through work. I don’t think she’s with him though.

  13. Mishka says:

    They are banging. So gross but I hope so. More fun to think about. Hahahaha.

  14. Snowflake says:

    Nooooooo, Selena! Run the other direction. Some women just love the bad boys, smh.

  15. Nicole says:

    I hope this is fake but I wouldn’t be surprised. Another old white hollywood dude trying to recapture his youth by dating someone half their age. So edgy. Its gross when Leo does it. when Chris Martin does it. So yea this is gross if true.
    Selena does have a terrible picker and we ALL KNOW she likes drama. So this seems up her alley.

  16. Josephine says:

    so what number is this now? every week he’s shipped with someone new and every week everyone clutches their pearls. very amusing.

  17. NoShame says:

    Theroux AND Gomez knew that romance rumors would start as a result of these hangouts and they knew this would come at Jen’s expense. Emma Stone knows this too. These people have been in the business long enough to know how the tabloids operate.

    Jen should have fired CAA and her management company ages ago. She should definitely fire them now to send them all a message. I find it hard to believe that Justin just happened to hang out with two other people repped by the same management team and that photogs just happened to be there to take photos. The paps don’t hang out in front of plays starring Billy Crudup.

    • tracking says:

      Maybe Jen A really doesn’t care what he does now. Especially since he’s the one that looks bad, not her.

      • NoShame says:

        Yeah, maybe. You don’t hear too much about her other than that she’s just living her life. She isn’t doing any pap strolls and doesn’t seem thirsty for attention in a way that Theroux does.

        My point was that it seems like the same agency and management company that Aniston has earned millions of dollars for shouldn’t be propping up Theroux like this.

        He and his hipster pals gaslit Aniston right out of the gate in what appeared to be a highly organized way and continue to do this through the tabs. Like something management and PR teams handle. There does seem to be a giant conflict of interest here if you’re helping in gaslighting someone who is also one of your clients.

        I doubt Aniston cares about what Theroux is up to, but if I were her I would care about what CAA and Lighthouse is up to.

  18. Melodie says:

    Well, if this is true, she traded bratty Justin for Edgy Justin. Her mum must be thrilled !

  19. Azul says:

    So she prefers the exboyfriends of her friends…

  20. Maya says:

    Haha what goes around comes around Jennifer.

    She did the same thing when she dated Chris Gartin while he was separating from his wife who was a close friend of Jennifer’s.

    • Darla says:

      I don’t think they ever dated, they were friends.

      • Sullivan says:

        Being friendly with someone and being an actual friend are two different things. Not everyone is Jennifer Aniston’s friend.

  21. Reef says:

    Maybe because she looks like a preteen, but Justin reminds me of that gif from 30 Rock with Steve Buscemi where he says “How do you, fellow kids?”

  22. perplexed says:

    I thought her mind was still on Bieber. I can’t keep up.

  23. Really says:

    Nahhh. Can’t see it.

  24. Pandy says:

    Oh I hope they are coupled up! Break out the popcorn, it will get messy!

  25. Penelope says:

    I’ve never found him attractive in the least–he looks so waxy and fake–and he also gives off huge douche vibes.

  26. AMOUREUX says:

    Besides the fact that it’s a L&S story and thus to be taken with a grain of salt, what I actually find mildly disturbing is the last picture. It might just be me but Paul Rudd seems oddly close to Selena…? Justin actually seems to be the one at a more “normal” friendly distance. Wtf Rudd

  27. Sandy says:

    They have been showing him with a lot of diffrent females lately.

  28. serena says:

    Meh, I don’t think so.. I mean, she goes for guys around her age and as much as Justin tries to be edgy he’s too old (and gross) for her. At least I hope I’m wrong.

  29. tearose11 says:

    Wha…?????? No way…except that I can’t put it past Selena, she has THE worst taste in men and doesn’t seem to mind taking over friend’s exes.

    But I’d need a lot more proof than just a silly article from L&S.

  30. jferber says:

    Yuck, he seems to like them really young. Unless he’s marrying up for exposure/fame. Aniston is well rid of him. Maybe Selena asked Jen if she could, and Jen was like, “Whatever.”

  31. Sunnyjyl says:

    I’m late to the party; but, GROSS!!!!!!!

  32. Kristen says:

    Explains her terrible Met Gala fake tan

  33. Ash says:

    There’s a recent pap pic with Selena, Petra, Justin, Paul Rudd and Rudd’s wife. What does it all mean?!?!
