This is unexpected
OK, so this has very much come as a celebrity couple curveball but it seems that Selena Gomez, 24, and The Weeknd (26-year-old Abel Tesfaye) are dating, after images of the pair canoodling have surfaced.
Dating at any time, no matter who you are is complicated to say the least. There’s so much uncertainty and second-guessing and all the initial excitement is met with equal nervousness. Now, add to that being under a global magnifying glass and having very public famous exes and it would seem basically impossible.
But, the pair went out to restaurant Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, last night and there was lots of PDA – but then again, it seems as if romance isn’t the only reason for PDA these days – so of course now there’s a lot of speculation.
According to PEOPLE: ‘It was a romantic dinner date in the rain. They acted like a couple. They ordered pasta and shared the food. She seemed very into him – she was smiling a lot. They left holding hands.’
The pair have known each other since at least the 2015 Victoria’s Secret show when they both performed [pictured] but it’s unknown how long they’ve been seeing each other.
But yes, The Weeknd only broke up with Bella Hadid last November, and the estranged couple were last seen together at the Victoria’s Secret show in Paris at the end of that month after Bella was spotted scrolling through couple photos on the plane over.
However, it might be slightly awkward considering that Selena Gomez runs in the same circles as Bella’s older sister Gigi Hadid. Proving that she is all of us post-break-up, Bella Hadid unfollowed Selena Gomez on Instagram on Wednesday afternoon.
Still, we’re pleased that Selena Gomez seems to be happy after she recently announced her career hiatus due to mental and physical health issues. Remember Selena Gomez’s triumphant AMA acceptance speech?
