BREAKING: Selena Gomez & The Weeknd Break Up After Bieber Reunion

By  | 

Okay, what year is it? We’re seriously asking because, one minute, Selena Gomez is reuniting with her on-again, off-again best friend, Demi Lovato, as well as her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Justin Bieber, signifying that it’s 2011 all over again, and the next she’s breaking up with The Weeknd, further solidifying that it’s, indeed, 2011 because she’s only got feels for one man and that man is the Biebs. Are we going too fast? Sorry, so many emotions rn.

ANYWAY, yes, you read that right, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd (a.k.a. Abel Tesfaye) called it quits after 10 months of dating. According to People, “She and Abel have been going back and forth for a few months about their relationship. It’s been hard with him being on tour and her shooting in New York. That wasn’t easy on them.”

The 25-year-old “WOLVES” singer reportedly “always made an effort” to attend the 27-year-old “Starboy” crooner’s shows when she could, but it wasn’t always possible, so “that played a part in them getting distant. It’s over for now, but they’re still in touch.”

“It’s been hard for them to come to the realization that this is the direction things were heading,” the report continued, “but it’s been hard for months.”

Word first got out about the musicians’ relationship in January of this year, after pictures surfaced of the two of them making out outside Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica, California. They made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Met Gala in New York City in May.

Recently, Selena’s been spotted hanging out with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, but The Weeknd supposedly had no problems with it. “The Weeknd doesn’t think Selena talking to Justin again is weird at all,” Us Weekly reported. “He doesn’t care.”

For the record, reports are saying that Selena has NOT rekindled her romance with the Biebs… BUT, then again, reports also said that The Weeknd didn’t care about her relationship with JB, then five seconds later, Selena & The Weeknd called it quits, so…

Guess we can add yet another duo to our list of celebrity couples that started & ended in 2017, huh?
