One of Selena Gomez's former co-stars says Nick Jonas was a better boyfriend for her than Justin Bieber ever was. "From a little brother’s perspective, I’d be like, 'Date him!' They were really good! Very out there as a couple," now-24-year-old Jake T. Austin, who co-starred on Wizards of Waverly Place, tells Us Weekly about Gomez's teenage relationship with Jonas. "They made sure they were always introducing each other as a couple to people they didn’t know. Very friendly overall." As for Gomez's infamous love affair with Justin Bieber, Austin adds, "He was really nice and friendly. It seemed like they really enjoyed each other’s company…I don’t know all of the specifics of their relationships, but from what I could see she seems to have been genuinely in love with these people."
