Selena Gomez and Austin Mahone: Are They Dating?

Sorry, Justin Bieber. You had your chance.

While that artist is galavanting around Panama with model Chantel Jeffries, sources tell Us Weekly that ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez is not sitting at home and lamenting her loss.

Quite the opposite, in fact: According to Us Weekly insiders, Gomez is seeing Austin Mahone, Yes, in the romantic sense!

These sources allege that Taylor Swift actually set Selena up with the Texas native, while onlookers witnessed Gomez and Malone "[sneaking] out separately" from a Beats Music concert on January 24 before getting into "the same car."

So there you have it, right?

Not exactly. Gossip Cop quotes someone in the know who says Gomez and Mahone are "not dating," leaving us to wonder which report to believe.

We can say for certain, however, that Selena is seeking a strong man who can deal with her independence.

"I actually talked to Katy Perry about guys who are intimidated by strong girls," she told Seventeen this month. "I haven't found someone yet who could understand my lifestyle, support it, love me through it, and not be threatened by it.

"It's hard. I do think I might scare some guys, because I'm like, 'I want to change the world! I have dreams! What do you want to do?' But I only know how to be me."
