Both Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston have been linked to multiple people after their very public split, but the latest rumors of Aniston dating Jake Gyllenhaal are clearly not true. According to Gossip Cop, the rumor that Aniston and Gyllenhaal were set up by Reese Witherspoon and that they're dating is totally false.

And there is no space for ambiguity in this report because it came directly from Gyllenhaal's spokesperson. 

As per Gossip Cop, "Gyllenhaal was in Los Angeles shooting his upcoming movie Velvet Buzzsaw at the time the date was said to have taken place." Moreover, this came straight from the actor's spokesperson, who confirmed the news that Gyllenhaal "wasn’t in New York in late April and never met Aniston for dinner.”

Theroux, who is the other party enveloped in dating rumors ever since he and Aniston announced their split earlier this year, is now reportedly romantically involved with his good friend and acquaintance, Selena Gomez. According to reports, the duo has "become closer than ever" in the past few weeks.

Reports from an insider at Life&Style Magazine suggest that the "Bad Liar" singer and the 46-year-old have been getting closer to each other, and are more than friends now, especially after the heartbreaks that they have recently gone through with respect to their respective love lives.

"Selena and Justin are falling for each other," an insider explained to the publication and added further that their shared experience of going through some very public splits has somehow brought them closer. 

Selena Gomez, whose relationship with on-and-off boyfriend Justin Bieber has been in the news for quite some time now, recently decided to end things once and for all with the "What Do You Mean" singer, and is reportedly doing pretty well after the split.

On the other hand, Theroux also underwent a very public split with his wife of two-years, and the news of their divorce has been making major waves in the gossip centers. It has even been reported that Theroux has already moved on from his heartbreak, and has been seen going out with a lot of women friends since the news of the divorce came out.

However, it looks like both Gomez and Theroux have been leaning on each other for support during these tumultuous times in their lives, and that has ended up in them getting romantically inclined towards each other. 

"Initially, they leaned on each other for emotional support after going through messy breakups," the sourced continued. "It's turned into something more than friendship." 

Gomez and Theroux have known each other for a long time, especially since both, the celebrities share the same manager between them. And clearly, their 21-year age gap does not seem to have fazed their romance in any way. 

However, a lot of people think that the relationship between the two celebrities is not exactly a good idea, and friends of the couple have also suggested that if it continues, the relationship will end badly for both of them, especially since his ex-wife has always seen Gomez as a mentee.

Although it is all just speculation at this moment, since both Gomez and Theroux have not given a confirmation on the matter, there have been reports doing the rounds that Theroux's ex is not happy with this new relationship.

“Jennifer is upset over the dating rumors swirling around her ex and Selena,” a source close to the actress shared with Hollywood Life. “It hurts Jen to think that Justin would move on already. To think of him with anyone else, especially someone so young and that Jen has a personal relationship with like Selena, is painful for her. Jen doesn’t want to think about it and definitely does not believe it.”
