Perhaps pulling from her own romantic history, Selena Gomez targeted emotionally underdeveloped adult men during her “Saturday Night Live” host over the weekend.
In a sketch of the long-running Japanese show “Old Enough!”, in which real-life children work for their parents, a frustrated Gomez has a mission for her boyfriend, played by Mickey Day. has gone.

Gomez previously dated both Nick Jonas and Justin Bieber after seven years of on-again, off-again romance. She was also linked to R&B superstar The Weeknd in 2017 before the two parted ways after 10 months of dating.
