Selena Gomez and The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) have split up after dating for 10 months.
The shocking news comes shortly after Gomez was seen having a friendly meal with her ex Justin Bieber the JOi Cafe in Westlake Village in California. The former flames were even spotted attending a church service in Los Angeles together.
So is Bieber to be blamed for Gomez and The Weeknd’s break up? According to E! News, the blonde singer “did not play a factor”. Word on the street has it that Gomez and The Weeknd have been discussing the fate of their relationship for quite some time.
“It’s been hard for them to come to the realisation that this is the direction things were heading, but it’s been hard for months. They have been open and honest about it and where they were going. Distance definitely played a factor,” an insider was quoted as saying.
The Weeknd is currently in the midst of his European “Starboy: Legend of the Fall” tour while Gomez has began filming in New York. “They are still talking and will remain friends. They have been very grown-up about it,” the source added.
Gomez and The Weeknd first sparked dating rumours in January when they were caught cuddling and making out outside a Giorgio Baldi restaurant, in Santa Monica, California.
Selenators, are y’all sad that it’s over for them?
