Selena Gomez spotted out holding hands with Drew Taggart in NYC

Selena Gomez and The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart are still bopping around NYC and now they’re holding hands for the paps. We just found out last week that they were dating and they went bowling and Selena is super into him and can’t keep her Hands to [Her]self. (All her song titles work so well with this developing relationship.) And now we got to see that in action. The pair went on a Saturday night dinner date in SoHo. Selena wore all black and Drew wore leather butterfly printed patches on the knees of his jeans.

Date night! Selena Gomez and Andrew “Drew” Taggart were spotted enjoying dinner in New York City on Saturday, January 21.

The pair stopped at Torrisi Bar & Restaurant in Soho. The new couple were spotted holding hands in photos obtained by Us Weekly.

The night on the town marks their second date in one week. The Rare Beauty singer, 30, and the Chainsmokers musician, 33, were seen enjoying a bowling date at The Gutter in New York City on Tuesday, January 17. Gomez and Taggart kept the outing casual, with Gomez rocking a black sweatsuit while the DJ donned a long-sleeve green shirt and dark pants.

Us exclusively confirmed their budding romance earlier this month. The two are “very casual and low-key,” a source told Us on January 16, explaining that the Only Murders in the Building star and her new beau “go bowling and to the movies” when spending time together. “They aren’t trying to hide their romance by sneaking around at members only clubs,” the insider explained.

“They are so affectionate and having a lot of fun together,” the source added. “Selena can hardly keep her hands off him.

Taggart’s new relationship with Gomez comes four months after Us exclusively confirmed that the EDM artist was dating Steve Jobs’ youngest daughter, Eve Jobs.

The model, 24, and Taggart’s romance was a “casual summer fling,” a source exclusively told Us in September 2022. Their spark fizzled out before the DJ began seeing the Wizards of Waverly Place alum. Taggart and Eve’s breakup was “totally amicable,” the source told Us, adding that the exes are “friends” who are both “very mature and cool about going [their] separate ways.”

Prior to his romances with Gomez and Eve, Taggart was linked to Meredith Mickelson and Haley Rowe. In March 2021, Us confirmed his split from DJ Chantel Jeffries after one year of dating.

I remain grossed out by this pairing because this dude gives me the ick. He just looks kind of ungroomed and unwashed. He and I are the same age and he just seems so much younger. Dude, that’s your date night outfit?! If someone showed up for a date wearing that, I would not go. But that’s me and I guess Selena likes it and they must have some stuff in common. They both have small, delicate faces. Anyway, between the bowling date and the Saturday night date night, Selena posted and deleted something saying she was single: “However, Gomez appeared to respond to the rumors that the two are linked by posting a black-and-white image on Thursday in a since-deleted Instagram Story (captured by Pop Base) with the caption, ‘I like being alone too much.’ She also added the hashtag “#iamsingle” at the bottom.” So are they just dating casually? Why post that and delete it? It seems rather childish and I kind of just think Selena has the worst taste in men. It just doesn’t align with the more mature, mental health-oriented image that she and her team have been building over the past few years. This is just all Selena, just like those ill-advised clapbacks that slip out on social media periodically. Maybe it was better when it was people that she dated that we didn’t know about.

    I might be totally biased but dude looks good! Selena you go ahead and enjoy him.

    • Eloise says:

      He has threesomes with his fans and band mates. He’s gross and probably riddled with stds. Know your worth, girl.

      • Ann says:

        I was sitting here enjoying the view of those volleyball pics thinking I know I shouldn’t think he’s hot but also yeah he kind of is…? Didn’t know about the threesomes. I do know I’ve seen The Chainsmokers live and they suck. Both of them seem like frat boy buttheads, but sometimes frat boys are hot. I can see where lol was coming from but yeah, he’s definitely icky.

      • Coco says:


        Yes I wonder if he is the reason behind post justifying her weight gain to the public .

      • luna says:

        Honestly, I’d never heard of him nor the band before those threesome stories came out and it frankly is what makes him hot to me? Is it sleazy? Yes, but they look like they’d be fun in bed I wouldn’t mind being stuck between them, after I’d hosed them down with antibiotics that is.

      • Coco says:

        @ luna

        I guy that might be riddled with STDs is a turn on for you ? Dose Usher who we know has STDs and infected multiple women turn you on as well.

    I’m with you, Peridot. If a dude turned up like this for our date I wouldn’t go. WTF are those pants? Not only are the butterflies ridiculous but the fit and length is awful. The rest isn’t any better and it looks like he has a giant grease stain on his sweatshirt.

  3. dina says:

    He gives me the ick too! Has a douchey face and says douchey things haha

  4. Case says:

    I would say she just has bad taste in men, but I really don’t care for her either, so I feel like she just picks like-people.

  5. Otaku fairy says:

    She could do better, but she could also do worse. So far threesomes and looking unwashed are the most scandalous things I’ve heard about him, which doesn’t sound drastically different from Pete Davidson. It’s probably not going to be a forever thing.

    • SomeChick says:

      now you’ve got me thinking about having a threesome with Pete, darn it! seriously, he looks fine. he’s some age appropriate dude, whatever. I hope he’s good for her.

  6. AmelieOriginal says:

    That top pic makes him seem like a frat boy at a college party. I looked him up and he is objectively cute. He is better looking clean shaven IMO (with no beard he looks a lot like that guy from the Kissing Booth movies Jacob Elordi). He has naturally curly hair it seems which is fine but do something to to define your curls and not just have it look like a mop on top of your head? I have wavy hair so I know the struggle. It seems most commenters are saying he’s douchey so hopefully it’s just a fling while Selena is in NYC filming the next season for Only Murders. She deserves to find a decent guy.
