Selena Gomez and Zayn Malik were recently seen out on a date night in New York City, sparking rumors that the two may be romantically involved. Reports suggest that the singers were spotted at a high-profile Manhattan eatery, engaging in a public display of affection.
Klarissa Garcia, a hostess at the restaurant, took to TikTok to share her account of the evening, claiming that she witnessed the couple’s romantic rendezvous during peak dinner hours. According to Garcia, the restaurant is located in the trendy Soho district, and the encounter went largely unnoticed by other patrons.
However, Garcia was not the only one to spot the couple that evening. A screenshot of a conversation between Garcia and a friend, who also works as a hostess at the restaurant, was posted on TikTok, with the friend alleging that she “seated” the couple and witnessed them holding hands and making out. In her message, the hostess remarked that “Everyone’s out here feeling bad for Selena. MEANWHILE, she with Gigi Hadid’s BABY ZADDDYYY.”
If the rumors are to be believed, this would mark the first time that Gomez and Malik have been romantically linked. Malik, who has a 2-year-old daughter with ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid, has kept a low profile since their split in October of last year. The former One Direction member has also faced accusations of striking Hadid’s mother, Yolanda Hadid, which he has denied.
Meanwhile, Gomez has been involved with several high-profile men in the past, including Justin Bieber, whom she dated on and off for eight years before their final breakup in 2018. Most recently, she was rumored to be seeing Drew Taggart, a member of the electronic dance music duo, The Chainsmokers. However, Gomez took to social media to confirm her single status, dispelling the rumors.
