Selena Gomez must be getting death threats: The Wizard of Waverly Place star has blasted rumors that she’s been doing some special hand-holding with the World’s Most Wanted Teen Justin Bieber.
The two were rumored to be dating after they were busted walking arm-in-arm after chowing down at Philadelphia’s International House of Pancakes last week. Life & Style Weekly’s Scene Queens even claimed the pair have been secretly dating for over a month.
“Selena’s been gushing about Justin more with friends,” an insider told the tab. “He’s had a crush on her forever. It’s definitely on! They ate dinner at PF Chang’s and then went to a movie on Nov. 1, they were super-cuddly.”
Hogwash, Selena, 18, told MTV News over the weekend.
“It was pancakes. Who doesn’t like pancakes? We were both performing in the same place so we went and had pancakes together. That’s all it is. All innocent.”
Glad that’s cleared up, but the most stressful news of the week for Beliebers is still to come: The Biebs is still rumored to be dating another Disney singer, Jasmine Villegas — at least that’s the word from Britain’s The Sun. Villegas, Justin’s love interest in the “Baby” video, has been a thorn in the side of Bieber fanatics ever since she was romantically-linked to the pint-sized hunk earlier this fall.
“Justin and Jasmine have been closer than they have let on for some time. He turned up on her video shoot and they were kissing and cuddling. She refers to him as her boyfriend. She also went to Atlanta to visit him.”
