It all started with an Instagram follow earlier this month, with insiders saying Zac Efron and Selena Gomez have “been hanging out and talking,” growing close. And while fans have made it very clear they are totally on board with the idea of Zelena, the former Disney Channel star’s friends are opposed to the duo dating.
“A lot of people think their chemistry is a recipe for disaster,” a source told Radar Online. “Both of them tend to go off the rails when they’re not living a fully focused, hyper-regimented lifestyle with a team of helpers keeping them on track.”
Despite their inner circle’s concerns, Zac Efron and Selena Gomez, who got along well on the set of Neighbors 2, “have downplayed any fear” and are “enjoying the fact that they’ve reconnected,” the source added.
Efron, 31, and Gomez, 26, both have a history of soughing treatment to deal with their respective issues.
The actor has been to rehab twice for abusing alcohol and drugs. He even avoided the after parties at the 2014 Oscars and attended the event with a sober coach. As for Selena, the songstress has had trouble with anxiety and depression, resulting in multiple rehab stints, most recently in October.
So, sorry, Zac. But, despite Selena’s advice, it’ll probably be best if you don’t come an get it.
