It's been months since Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have split. Now the singer reportedly has another guy she loves, someone who's close to her heart.

Selena Gomez is particularly close with her friend and fellow Disney star Cody Simpson. The latter recently celebrated his 18th birthday and Selena wanted the singer to know how much he means to her. The singer took to her Instagram account on Monday, Jan. 12, to send her greetings to Cody. She shared a photo of her and the Australian wearing matching hats. She captioned the image with a meaningful message, saying, "Happiest of birthdays to bubba and such an incredible person. Love you inside out @codysimpson -here's to more."

Back in July, the Australian once claimed he'd want to marry Selena. Cody was asked to participate in a parlor game called "Eff, Marry, Kill." According to Hollywood Life, he was asked to choose between Kendall Jenner, Jennifer Lawrence and Selena Gomez for either categories. In a video interview below with Blunt Talking, Simpson could be heard saying "I'm gonna kill Kendal, just because I don't wanna... the other things it's not gonna... I wouldn't get too far in the other categories with her." Then at the 1:15 time mark he says, "I'm gonna eff Jennifer Lawrence" and "marry Selena Gomez."

However, there's reportedly nothing romantic going on between the two. According to Mail Online, Simpson has been the long-time boyfriend of one of Selena's friends, Gigi Hadid. It's reportedly through the model that Selena got to know Cody. However, the couple has supposedly been having troubles in their relationship. It's believed they've been on-again-off-again for over a year.

Nevertheless, Gigi recently confirmed that the love is still there and that all is well with her and the Australian. She also took to her Instagram account on Monday to give her boyfriend a sweet message. Gigi shared a photo of her and Cody Simpson embracing on a beach. The sun going down behind them made for a romantic backdrop. The model captioned the photo, "'happy birthday to you my are an unmatched soul in this world and love in my heart x."
