Selena Gomez has tried to keep her relationships more secretive since her public relationship with Justin Bieber, but fans still caught on when she was spotted holding hands and getting cuddly with NYU student and Gigi Hadid's close friend, Samuel Krost. Well, he just confirmed that they dated the previous winter and that he still loves her!
He took to Instagram in order to defend her against the haters, writing, "Selena is a real girl with a real heart and real feelings. All you superficial who are just unhappy with your love lives, understand that love is real. Although we have ventured on separate paths, at least I know that love exists. I love you, Sel."
After posting this message, he tagged her in the comments section, presumably so she would see it.
This is major! Although he deleted the post, fans were quick to catch on. Still, he's not the only one of Sel's exes to try to get her attention on Instagram. Remember when JB shared a throwback photo of them kissing? Despite all her old love interests shamelessly vying for her attention, she's just doing her thing.
