Pop singer Selena Gomez and soccer sensation Neymar Jr recently sparked romance rumours after they were reportedly spotted together at a New York hotel. During their night out in the city, the pair fuelled the speculations after they were seen leaving the same hotel minutes apart.
Later, 23-year-old Gomez was reported to have spent the night clubbing with the Brazilian football player at the popular nightclub Up and Down. Also joining the duo was singer Joe Jonas.
While it would definitely be interesting and refreshing for fans to see Gomez hanging out more with 24-year-old Neymar, the FC Barcelona player in the meanwhile seems to have struck up a friendship with Gomez's ex boyfriend Justin Bieber.
A source told Hollywood Life: "Neymar definitely thinks Selena is stunning, but he wouldn't break bro-code with Justin and try and date her."
Bieber, who has been bonding with Neymar of late, recently took to his Instagram account to post a video of him practicing some moves with the Brazil football captain. "He's really building up a great bond with Justin while he's staying in LA, and the pair has become really close. They respect each other's talents, and love hanging out and playing soccer or listening to music," the report further claimed.
Although it has been a long time since Gomez and Bieber split, the duo have always been in news, thanks to the Love Yourself singer's antics. In fact, fans almost thought there might be a sweet reconciliation around the corner between the former music couple when 22-year-old Bieber re-followed Gomez on Instagram.
Meanwhile, dismissing the possible relationship between Gomez and Neymar, the gossip magazine's report added: "Neymar would never betray Justin and pursue anything with Selena. He's just too good a friend."
