Glee's Mark Salling is poised to climb the music charts with the release of a hot debut single and it looks like he could be doing it with a new woman on his arm, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Friends of actress and singer-songwriter Selena Gomez tell us the couple "may be an item" after striking quite the rapport at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards.
EXCLUSIVE VIDEO INTERVIEW: Glee's Mark Salling Talks Music, Mohawks & Kissing Kristin Chenoweth
"They were texting during the awards," dishes one pal, "even though Selena was front row and Mark was backstage co-hosting.
"Every time Mark came up on stage, she was beaming ear to ear."
But don't jump to conclusions yet, folks.
We're told a very-single-looking Mark ditched the Teen Choice after party to hit up top restaurant Katsuya in Hollywood with Cory Monteith and Chord Overstreet, the newest cast member of Glee.
It's been a big few days for the Glee alum, 27, who announced plans to release first solo album, Pipe Dreams, this fall.
His first track, Higher Power, debuted to rave reviews on Ryan Seacrest's radio show this morning.
But rest assured: Salling isn't leaving Glee club altogether... the next series Of Glee premieres September 21, 2010 on FOX.
