Jimmy Butler's baby mama might not be happy with his alleged romance

At this point, there isn't much hard evidence about Jimmy Butler and Selena Gomez's relationship, especially since they have yet to be photographed together. However, per the Daily Mail, some eagle-eyed fans noticed that the professional basketball player's baby mama, Kaitlin Nowak, unfollowed Gomez on Instagram. Just one month before Butler was linked to the songstress, he celebrated his NBA championship win with the mother of his daughter, according to the outlet.

As for Gomez, she has been in high-profile relationships with both The Weeknd and Justin Bieber. Although things haven't worked out for her in the past, she hinted that she's open to love, but not with an entertainer this time around. "Everyone dates everyone. It always seems to be within a little bubble and it's because it's safe, right? ... But the problem with that is that you end up — whether you admit it or not — you're having your relationship for people and not even for yourself," Gomez said in an interview with Apple Music's Zane Lowe in January 2020. "

She continued, "There's almost this point where it's like, 'Oh, we're making it known that we're together' or whatever,'" adding that it gets to a point where you "just need to decide within [your] world if it's for you or is it for show." Whether Butler and Gomez are in love, lust, or nothing at all, it seems like Gomez knows exactly what she wants, or, at the very least, what she doesn't.
