'Good For You' singer Selena Gomez was spotted holding hands with rumoured beau Samuel Krost - here's all you need to know about him

After months of speculation, Selena Gomez is out in the open with a new romance – welcome, Samuel Krost!

On Monday evening, the pair were papped hand-in-hand coming out of Beverly Hills’ SLS Hotel, seemingly putting to bed any whispers about whether or not they’re more than friends.

The pair have been rumoured to be together since November 2015, when Selena was pictured happily sitting on his lap at dinner. Though Selena, 23, was also linked to 1D’s Niall Horan at the end of 2015, many believe that she is moving forward with Sam.

He’s quite a clever lad

Samuel graduated from NYU last summer with a Bachelor’s degree in Business. What’s more, according to his LinkedIn profile, he graduated cum laude, which is the American university term for ‘with distinction’. Excellent!

But judging by this sleepy snap posted on his Instagram page, captioned ‘NYU taught me…’, his time at uni was spent doing what students love most – napping.
