Selena Gomez & Taylor Swift have more in common than you realized. Not only are the besties drop-dead gorgeous, rich AF and two of the biggest pop stars on the planet, but they also like to share boyfriends — with each other and with their other closest Hollywood pals.
The 24-year-old brunette may not have as many famous friends as the 27-year-old blonde, but she sure does follow in her footsteps when it comes to dating the same guys as her buddies. Here are nine of the “Hands to Myself” crooner’s friends who hooked up with the same guy(s) she did:
In spring 2009, Selena dated Taylor Lautner. At the time, they were both shooting movies in Vancouver (Selena was filming Ramona and Beezus; Taylor was working on The Twilight Saga: New Moon), so a romance blossomed from their close quarters. The relationship, however, fizzled come summertime.
Don't feel too bad for Taylor, though — a few months later, he started seeing Sel's best friend, Taylor Swift, whom he met on the set of Valentine's Day. Again, the relationship didn't last... but at least he got an awesome apology song out of it. ("Back to December," duh!)
Needless to say, the besties didn't let a guy get between 'em — they're still as close as ever.
Even though they're best friends, Lily really likes Selena's leftovers, as she got the "Bad Liar" singer's sloppy seconds a minimum of two times.
First, there's Nick Jonas. Nick & Selena were Disney royalty, dating on and off from February 2008 to March 2010. As for Nick & Lily, they dated for a hot second in early 2016.
Then, of course, there's Taylor Lautner, who, as previously mentioned, dated Selena in spring 2009. Post-split from Taylor Swift, he hooked up with Lily in November 2010 after meeting on the set of their flick, Abduction, but called it quits just a short while before the film premiered the following year.

Demi and Selena no longer seem to be BFFs, but they have a lifelong friendship in their history.
At some point during Selena's relationship with Nick Jonas, her pal started a relationship with another famous musician: Alex DeLeon from The Cab. Demi and Alex reportedly dated from September 2008 to January 2009.
Fast forward to summer 2015 — a whopping seven years after D.Lo was first linked to Alex — and Selena's spotted clutching the singer's arm in NYC, leading people to suspect that they had a romance of their own.
Kendall and/or Kylie Jenner
Coachella 2014 appeared to mark the rise of Selena's friendship with the Jenner sisters... but that didn't last long 'cause of two words: Justin Bieber.
A month after the trio became obsessed with each other, Selena proved she was done with the youngest members of the Kardashian clan by performing an act so sinister, there's no denying the haterade that filled her up: She unfollowed both of the sisters on Instagram. *gasp*
According to various reports, at least one of the Jenner sisters got with the Biebs soon after their love fest with the Wizards of Waverly Place alum, so she was like, "Bye, b*tches."

It was January 2016 when Katy Perry started a relationship with Orlando Bloom; a relationship that lasted until February 2017.
But, it wasn't always smooth sailing. Despite Katy's friendship with her, Selena was spotted getting extremely cozy with Orly in May 2016 at a Las Vegas nightclub — like, the pictures TMZ obtained suggest a full-on makeout session.
Nevertheless, Katy stuck by her man, tweeting about his greatness, and Selena praised Katy's tweets.

The supermodel, who's basically only friends with Selena because of their shared bestie, Taylor Swift, has been famously dating Zayn Malik since November 2015.
BUT, in the midst of Zigi's relationship, in August 2016, rumors started swirling that Zayn helped Selena cheat on Justin Bieber. And you know who started it all? Justin, himself... supposedly.
During an intense social media brawl on Instagram, Selena wrote, "Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive, no wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love."
Justin's alleged response: "I cheated...Oh and I forgot about you and Zayn?" There were screenshots at the time, but JB's camp never confirmed nor denied the commentary.
Wonder how Gigi felt about all of that.

Same as with Gigi, we're guessing that Selena's friendship with Bella blossomed because of their shared besties, but still...
While we're pretty certain that you know their shared bae, we'll fill you in — just in case:
From April 2015 to November 2016, the supermodel dated The Weeknd. It was originally said to be an amicable split... until another woman came along in the blink of an eye; that woman's Selena Gomez.
The "Starboy" crooner and the Disney Channel alum were spotted making out in January 2017, immediately sparking the attention of the media... and his ex-girlfriend.
In the months that followed, The Weeknd and Selena both unfollowed Bella on Instagram, and she unfollowed The Weeknd.
By now, you know all there is to know about Selena's past with Taylor Lautner. (If not, take a look back at the Taylor Swift & Lily Collins slides.) Yet, we bet you don't remember that the Pretty Little Liars star and the Twilight hunk had their own romance rumors.
Ashley, who's a close friend and former co-star of Selly's (via Spring Breakers), and Tay ignited dating rumors in September 2015 after the two posed for a picture with his arm around her neck during Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights... a week after she posted another Instagram with him and a male friend with the caption, "My boys @runroccorun and T," along with a heart emoji.
No matter what the occasion, SG and the Victoria's Secret supermodel have no problem showing their love for each other — even after their two shared ex-loves duked it out.
During the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2016 Resort Collection on May 6, 2015, the brunette beauties cuddled up for some pictures, despite the beef between Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom, whom they both were linked to in the past.
Remember, the famous men got into a fight in Ibiza in July 2014, after Orlando and Miranda got divorced, and Justin and Selena were a no-go.
