Jimmy Butler was allegedly seen hanging out recently with singer-actress Selena Gomez, sparking speculation about a romance between them.
Jimmy Butler, spotted with Iggy Azalea in the past, has a one-year-old daughter with model Kaitlin Nowak. It remains is unknown whether the pair are still together, given that he didn’t invite her to Disney World in the NBA bubble.
Butler was also linked to Pretty Little Liars actress Shay Mitchell, but neither party confirmed it at the time.
Where did this rumor originate from? Where exactly were Butler and Selena Gomez spotted together?
Twitter users speculate whether Jimmy Butler is dating Selena Gomez
A Twitter, Chris Piro, claiming to be an NBA and NFL insider, broke the news and named himself as his own source to the story.

The absence of images from these claims means the speculation could, in all likelihood, just be for the sake of attention and clickbait. A Twitter user noted the same.
However, there’s no smoke without fire and any confirmation of a relationship between the two could really send NBA fans in a frenzy. Jimmy Butler’s personal life has always been a little under the radar, but dating a high-profile singer could change that for the Heat superstar.

Gomez has been in a relationship with the likes of Justin Bieber and The Weeknd in the past. She was also rumored to have dated other notable celebrities in Charlie Puth, Nick Jonas, Orlando Bloom, and Niall Horan, among others.
It remains to be seen whether Butler and Gomez will come out to confirm or deny these rumors. But they’re out and about now.
