It seems Selena Gomez, 24, has a thing for Canadian pop stars.
After a much needed break from the spotlight, Selena Gomez’s triumphant return has come with a new relationship with the recently single (and shorn) Abel Tesfaye… also known as The Weeknd, 26.
The reported couple was seen getting cozy Tuesday night outside Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, with TMZ suggesting the pair are “definitely” an item based on the PDA-filled photos.
The Weeknd and Gomez being seen together is nothing new, they were both performers at the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but as we know, haters gonna hate, wasting no time making awkward connections to the pair’s former flames.
As much as some ‘Jelena’ fans might be upset over this new pairing, some are saying Gomez might be putting her friendship with Gigi Hadid at risk as Gigi’s sister Bella recently broke up with The Weeknd after dating for 18 months. Bella has since unfollowed Gomez on Instagram.
Based on her Instagram from the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, where Hadid calls Abel “the best, most incredible performer on the planet” we have a feeling these two might be more amicable than other people think.
