Now that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are done and the wounds are beginning to heal, fans are wondering who their next suitors might be. Could it be a fellow singer for Bieber? A co-star for Gomez? While neither has opened up about what caused their break-up, they are beginning to be linked to other young Hollywood stars.

Days before news of Bieber and Gomez's split, Victoria's Secret model Barbara Palvin tweeted a photo of herself with him after the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, at which the Biebs performed.

"Okay sooo because u guys were askin for it! with @justinbieber ! you were great tonight!" Palvin, 19, tweeted.

After the show, 19-year-old Palvin and 18-year-old Bieber were spotted with a group of friends at the Broadway show "The Lion King." Bieber's fans began speculating on Twitter that Palvin may have had a hand in the Gomez break-up.

Palvin shot down the rumors, later tweeting, "Hey everyone. please calm down. he is all yours!! :) please :)."

Niall Horan

With those sexy English and Irish accents, any girl would be lucky to date one of the boys from One Direction. And at age 19, band member Niall Horan is the perfect age for Gomez, who has preferred younger men (Bieber is two years younger than she). Horan reportedly hit on Gomez at the 2012 Kids' Choice Awards in March, which Bieber also attended. But like many young Hollywood stars, Horan has been linked to a number of women, including Gomez's pal Demi Lovato. Horan confirmed last month that he is in fact still single.

Victoria Justice

Now that Bieber and Gomez have split, some eyes turn to Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice. She told Teen Vogue earlier this year that she likes guys who are "down-to earth, smart, into film and the arts, and who's going to bring out the best in me." Bieber could be a perfect fit for the "Victorious" star.

On the other hand, the 19-year-old Justice did tell Teen Vogue earlier this year she doesn't want any relationship of hers to play out in the tabloids, which Bieber and Gomez's often did.

"I don't want to be the type of person to have my relationships plastered in magazines. The times the paparazzi have gotten pictures of me in my personal life, I've been completely freaked out by it, like, 'How did they know I was here?'"

He may be 14 years her senior, but James Franco and Selena Gomez do have a history together. Sort of. The pair recently wrapped the film "Spring Breakers" and have been romantically linked before. Franco addressed the rumors last month in a piece for the Huffington Post.

"I also hear that I've been dating Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart and Ashley Benson. Hot damn, am I a lucky guy," Franco wrote. "As for Gomez and Benson, those are Bieber's girls and I wouldn't dare tangle with the Biebs. I heard he wants to kick my a**. Yikes!"

Now that the Biebs and Gomez are done, maybe Franco and Gomez can date without any fights.

Zac Efron

Zac Efron split from his "High School Musical" co-star, Vanessa Hudgens, in 2010. Both Efron and Gomez got their start on the Disney channel and the pair was often linked earlier on in their careers.

But Efron is single and dating, he told Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show last month.

"Dating is kind of hard," Efron said. "A forced awkward situation is very strange. Especially for me, for some reason. I like to go and do something adventurous. I like to go out and do some sort of crazy activity."

Maybe Gomez could make dating easier for the 24-year-old Efron.
