Disney star Selena Gomez is adamant she’s a single lady – but credits rumoured boyfriend Taylor Lautner with making her “so happy”. The pair found themselves at the centre of tabloid speculation earlier this year (Apr09) after Gomez was spotted enjoying a romantic dinner with the “Twilight” hunk in Vancouver, Canada, where they were both shooting new movies.

Gomez, 16, laughed off the reports, insisting she is not interested in dating any famous men after she was briefly linked to Nick Jonas in 2008. In a new interview with America’s Seventeen magazine, the Wizards of Waverly Place star claims she is definitely not in a relationship – but reveals that meeting Lautner was “the best thing ever.”

She says, “Taylor has made me so happy. I didn’t know I could be that happy. He’s a great guy. But I’m 100 per cent single, and I’m going keep it that way for a while. I went to Vancouver thinking I was going to focus on my work, but instead I got to meet him, and it ended up being the best thing ever.”
