A celebrity gossip website has come up with explosive claims that Selena Gomez and Brad Pitt's bond is more than friendship. The duo also allegedly call each other regularly without The Weeknd's knowledge.

A source told Radar Online: "Brad's a huge fan of Selena. They've stayed in touch ever since the Golden Globes last year."

"Of course, it was the worst possible time for him to start a new romance, but the spark was definitely there and she was hugely attracted to him as well," the insider added.

"Brad really admires how courageous Selena's been throughout her health crisis, and she's equally proud of him for getting sober," the source shared.

In 2016, many reports were circulating stating that Pitt cheated on Angelina Jolie with the former Disney star. The infidelity allegations started after the Come and Get It singer appeared in his film, The Big Short.

To add more fuel to the fire, she posted a photo of them together on Instagram after the Golden Globe awards 2016. She captioned the image: "Just discussing #TheBigShort."

However, Gomez and The Weeknd's love life has been going strong despite these rumours. The two, who have been dating since January, made their red carpet debut at the 2017 Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The 27-year-old singer kissed the 24-year-old singer on her cheeks while on the red carpet, confirming their relationship.

Gomez had opened up about her romance with The Weeknd during a radio interview. She told Miami's Power 96.5 FM: "I'm the kind of girl that loves tremendously big. I just have always been that girl. I will give my heart and my soul to the person that I love. It's just how I operate. With that comes a lot, you know?"

Meanwhile, Pitt has been leading a solo life after the 41-year-old actress filed for divorce from the actor in September 2016.

Previously, during a recent interview with GQ, Pitt revealed his priority right now are the couple's children. He said: "Family first. People on their deathbeds don't talk about what they obtained or were awarded."

"They talk about their loved ones or their regrets—that seems to be the menu. I say that as someone who's let the work take me away. Kids are so delicate. They absorb everything. They need to have their hand held and things explained. They need to be listened to. When I get in that busy work mode, I'm not hearing. I want to be better at that," Pitt added.
