You Already Know Selena Gomez’s New Bae… as Her Friend’s Ex-Boyfriend!

By  | 

We didn’t see this one coming… at all. Just about two months after The Weeknd and his longtime girlfriend Bella Hadid called it quits, the singer found himself a new bae — Selena Gomez!

Abel Tesfaye (the “Starboy” crooner’s real name) and the former Disney Channel star were photographed cuddling making out outside Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica, California, last night, sparking rumors that they’re more than just friends.

While we’re not saying the 24-year-old is best friends with the supermodel or anything, but she and Bella have definitely hung out in the past (probably thanks to their mutual pal Taylor Swift) and it’s pretty safe to say that they can be considered friends. The 20-year-old did call her 26-year-old ex her “best friend” shortly after they split, so perhaps there’s no bad blood between the beautiful brunettes.

So, either Selena and The Weeknd are in a full-blown relationship, or they’re simply ~having fun~ (read: hooking up)…which do you think it is?
