Selena Gomez and The Weeknd have officially separated after almost a year of dating – ten months to be exact. A source close to Selena confirmed the news to Us Weekly.
The announcement comes after Gomez and Justin Bieber hung out several times in the last two weeks. According to reports, after Selena received her kidney transplant, Justin and his ex-girlfriend began to talk again.
At the time, sources close to Abel Tesfaye – The Weeknd – claimed that he didn’t care and didn’t think it was weird that they hung out.
Selena and The Weeknd started dating in January of this year, and they went on the red carpet for the first time at the Met Gala in the Big Apple in May.
Additionally, they traveled together for his tour, Starboy: Legend of the Fall. Just one month ago, sources close to the former couple claimed everything was going great.
An insider declared, “The Weeknd and Selena are getting into each other. They keep discovering common interests, and their chemistry is off the chart.”
Abel and Gomez were never shy about expressing their mutual admiration on social media either, with both parties taking to Instagram to post photos of one another.
During an interview with Miami’s Power 96.5 back in May of this year, Selena said she’s very passionate and “loves tremendously big.”
She claimed she would give her “heart and soul” to the person she loves because it’s “how (she) operates.” As you may already know, Abel formerly dated Bella Hadid and Gomez dated Justin from 2011 until 2014. However, Justin and Selena (Jelena) eventually grew apart after their explosive feud on social media where it ended with Justin deleting his account.
