A couple of days after rumors began to spread that Selena Gomez was dating Chainsmokers musician Drew Taggart, she took to Instagram to address the claims.

“I LIKE BEING ALONE TOO MUCH #iamsingle.” she wrote on Thursday.

The 30-year-old actress wrote the message over a black and white nature landscape. However, she quickly deleted the post after uploading it.

It remains unclear why Gomez deleted her post, but it seems to be a change in attitude towards dating since her Saturday Night Live hosting debut last spring, where she said that she was using the job to find love.

“One reason I’m really excited to host SNL is because I’m single,” Gomez announced in her opening monologue. “And I’ve heard that SNL is a great place to find romance.” 

The speculation arose after the pair was seen bowling together at New York City’s The Gutter last weekend. Photos of the occasion were published in a tabloid.

Gomez has started working on season three of Only Murders in the Building. She also confirmed that a new album would be coming out soon.
