"The two of you look great as a couple. Hey Ryan, hint hint," wrote one, while another added: "I think you 2 look good together!"

Many of Ryan's social media followers mirrored the statement and several even thought it was a relationship announcement.

Ironically Selena opened up to Ryan back in 2019 about her publicised breakup from Justin Bieber, but fans didn't realise they were pals.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like a romance is on the cards for the pair, however, as Ryan is reportedly still dating Instagram model, Aubrey Paige.

Remember when Selena dated Justin Bieber?

Selena is single but spoke to Apple Music's Beats 1 about dating within the celebrity world. 

"If I can be honest, it is just so cliché. Everyone dates everyone," she explained "It always seems to be within a little bubble and it’s because it’s safe, right? You know, you’re wanting someone to understand what you’re going through.

"You’re almost wanting a counterpart of creativity as well and it’s, you know, interesting and fun."
