You Already Know Selena Gomez’s New Bae… as Her Friend’s Ex-Boyfriend!
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?
Bella Hadid and The Weeknd’s breakup was definitely one of the most shocking celebrity splits that happened last year:
Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris
On June 1, People dropped the bomb that, after a year and 3 months of romance, Talvin called it quits.
It claimed, "There was no drama" surrounding the breakup; "things just don't work out sometimes. No one cheated."
The even bigger shock came 2 weeks later, on June 15... when she was spotted hooking up with Tom Hiddleston! Hiddleswift only lasted for 3 months, though, so the public wasn't as surprised.
