Selena Gomez is still enjoying life in Italy, stepping out on Aug. 6 to go boating in Sorrento. Gomez dressed cozily for the occasion, pairing a cream knit button-down top with matching pants. She accessorized with white cat-eye sunglasses and wore her hair styled into a high bun. Notably joining her was Andrea Iervolino, the Italian-Canadian producer and friend that she had sparked romance rumors with earlier on the trip.
Gomez is officially single, with a source telling Entertainment Tonight on her 30th birthday that while she isn’t ruling out the idea of romance, she’s not actively pursuing it either. “Selena isn’t dating anyone specific at this time,” the source said. “She is more open to love, but she is also very much focused on herself and her work right now. She’s in a very healthy place. She is feeling fantastic and very mentally, physically and emotionally healthy.”
Regarding the kind of person she hopes to date, the source said, “When she is ready for a true partner, she wants someone who is trustworthy, respectful, honest—with themselves and to others, real, supportive, accepting, nice, thoughtful , funny and someone that’s not in it for the fame or attention.”
Gomez spoke with her friend Raquelle Stevens for the second season of Giving Back Generation about how she hopes to have a spouse and a family someday. “I hope to be married and to be a mom,” she said of her dreams for the future. “Eventually, I’m going to be tired of all this so I’m probably just going to devote most of my life to philanthropy before I peace out. Just keeping it real.”
