Selena Gomez & The Weeknd were making out, ‘she seemed very into him’


Selena Gomez had a relatively quiet 2016. She sought treatment for her mental health issues and she’s reportedly struggled with lupus-related health issues as well. Of course, she wasn’t completely quiet – she notably got into an Instagram beef with her ex, Justin Bieber, last August, after which she tried to tone down her social media presence. It feels like she hasn’t been in the news in a few months, and many of us hoped that 2017 would bring less drama for Selena. Enter The Weeknd! Selena is back in the news this week because it seems like she has a new boyfriend, and whoa nelly is this going to bring some drama. Selena was seen making out with The Weeknd, also known as Abel Tesfaye. The Weeknd and Bella Hadid just broke up a few months ago. And now this:

According to TMZ, they were spotted together on Tuesday night outside of Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica. That’s not the most pap-friendly place, but it’s also not the most discreet place, you know? People Magazine’s sources say the relationship is “new and nothing serious” and one “onlooker” said that “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.” That seems… out of character for Abel, right? I never got the feeling that he was all that romantic with Bella.

Meanwhile, E! News made the romance sound a little bit different – like Selena was all over him and that they’re in the first flush of a full-blown romance. Of course, sources also told E! News:

“At first, Selena and Abel wanted to keep their relationship a secret. But they’ve decided they really don’t care if everyone knows about them. Selena was focusing on getting herself back together and Abel was just getting out of a relationship, plus putting out his new album. Abel and Bella also were on and off towards the end of their relationship, so getting into something brand new was not what Abel was looking for…. Abel though always had a thing for Selena. He thinks she is extremely talented and sexy. They recently started talking before the holidays but she has been on his radar before. They are on the same level with expectations and think the other is really fun. They are taking things slow and getting to know each other.”

[From E! News]

Sure. To me, these has a whiff of showmance even more than Jennifer Lopez and Drake, but whatever. It’s possible they’re both using each other for their careers AND the romance is legit. We’ll see. I do feel sorry for Bella a little bit too – it sucks that “sources” are claiming that The Weeknd had Selena on his “radar” for a while, presumably while he was with Bella. I think Selena thrives on drama, no matter what she claims to the contrary.

Oh, and Bella Hadid “quietly unfollowed” Selena on Instagram. See?

    I want to know how Justin Beiber will react to this? He did not take it well when Selena and Orlando Bloom were spending time together.

    • Pandy says:

      Right? Another Canadian pop star not fighting both dickhead and boy band biases …. I’m making popcorn even tho I’m way too old to pay attention to this nonsense lol.

  2. QQ says:

    Oh, Selena might as well prebook the trip to the retreat now, sis….. if we know NOTHING else about Abel Tesfaye we know this: THIS ONE WONT GIVE YOU the PDA AND GRAND GESTURES that Bieber used to pull on ya to ingratiate himself after a f*ck up, nay! In Fact THIS ONE? he’ll Probably lay Pipe like a certified plumber and probably move on to the next one

    • detritus says:

      This is the right read
      He’ll make your body feel good for a short time and your heart hurt for a long time.
      Run baby girl.

      Unless maybe she just wants a good lay and some quality weed(it won’t just be weed).

      • QQ says:

        Correct … down to the laced weed, though to be fair i don’t see how one dates Bieber abd is also then unfamiliar with Sizzurp cause his whole crew was just that ya know? , Lean Kids

    • Nicole says:

      That and she was rumored to have issues with substance abuse while with JB. So going out with a KNOWN DRUG USER is probably not the best plan.

      Of course she thrives on drama. Her bff is Taylor “the snake” Swift

      • Nancy says:

        Right. She is a little drama queen. She can go out with someone she’s crushing on, get hurt, get sad, go to rehab…………and then announce she is a brand new person. I’m not a fan of the Bieb, but I’m thinking he dodged an emotional rollercoaster bullet by ending the relationship with Selena. She is friends with Taylor for a reason, they both seem to have the same agenda. Look at me and then when we do, cry about it.

    • tegteg says:

      Yeah, this is how I’m seeing it. And in the pics she looks way into him and he’s like MEH. This boy is bad news bears.

    • I Choose Me says:

      I’m here like Gurrrrrl. I mean get it but don’t get too involved because this dude right here is not THE ONE.

    • Lemon says:


    • ash says:

      nothing but the facts….. i read somewhere (when bella and the weeknd became public) like yea he is exactly like the song he sings (early weeknd song are pantie melters) i was like TOUCHE dude TOUCHE in the love making dept….but as far as relationship in those exact SAME ASS songs….he is sort of a debauchery with women and the respect and all that…. so I second QQ.

      and by the way Bella gushed with him she genuinely loved him and him rocking her world like that prob didn’t help….. but HELLO Selena this is what you have to look forward to.

      • detritus says:

        It is the worst to see one of my girls get dickmatized by some smooth talking bag of useless.
        You cannot convince a girl who is getting it right, especially for the first time, that Os do not equal respect and don’t some of those jerks know it.

        You don’t f+ck with your friends exes though. Unless you have seriously unhealthy one upmanship problems, or possibly when you are one of those people who just manage detachment, but that is not Selena.

      • Vizia says:

        “dickmatized by some smooth talking bag of useless” wins the internet today!

    • Anilehcim says:

      “Oh, Selena might as well prebook the trip to the retreat now, sis”

      LMAO! Thank you for that laugh, QQ. No lies detected! Those pics are very telling… he did not look like he was that into her and she was all over him like she was madly in love.

      • Mary Mary says:

        I don’t find this amusing at all. Selena seems emotionally fragile and being with someone who is not into her, doesn’t help her self-esteem.

        She will need TS or girl squad on speed dial.

    • OriginallyBlue says:

      Good dick is a hella of drug.

  3. QueenB says:

    lets hope she is just hoping for publicity. she really shouldnt be with someone like him if she cares about her own health issues.

  4. JustME says:

    She was always looking at the camera so who knows.. mabye it’s just another PR relationship.

  5. Mrs.Curious says:

    Isn’t he famous for taking drugs etc?

  6. Anonymous says:

    The pictures looked so staged. I like Selena a lot but I think that this is a pr romance.

  7. huh says:

    Isn’t she friend’s with bella and besties with gigi? shit thing to do really. .

  8. Elle says:

    From one f*ckboy to another. Well, she is beyond repair…

  9. The New Classic says:

    Just from the pics it looks like she is WAAAAY more into him than he is into her. Reminds me of those pap pics when Scarlett Johansson was kissing Jared Leto, meanwhile he was focused on his phone. Girl you can do better.

  10. pretty says:

    i literally don’t get why she’s even popular. like… what does she even do? i was SHOCKED to learn that she is the NO.1 most followed Instagram user. what? how? She is literally plain-looking, not even a trend-setter like Kardashian-Jenner girls or Hadid sisters. I am so perplexed.

    • Sam says:

      I can’t believe I’m doing this but here it goes.
      Selena had a very successful career on the Disney channel in which she expanded to “singing.” I have no idea who told her she could sing but whoever it was, needs to get their ears checked. Unlike the Kardashians she actually has “some” talent in the acting department. Not anything great but better than some of the supposed movie stars who keep getting roles.

      As for the Instagram followers…what do you expect? This is the world we live in. The folks in Taylor Swift’s squad are all popular on Instagram….well the ones who have jobs outside of being Taylor Swift’s friend do.

    • Nicole says:

      She was big on Disney and actually broke out for music. Mix in a very famous bf and that’s Selena Gomes in a nutshell

    • Alleycat says:

      I cannot believe you called the Jenners trendsetters.

      • mp says:

        Well if you think about it they are….yeah I know, but there are many kids that follow and copy them…so….this is our world now.

    • Lemon says:

      I totally feel you. With the kardashian/Jenners it totally makes sense for them to be followed. They start the stupid trends that all the rest of the Instamodels and wannabe instamodels follow (chokers, nude body suits, etc). Selena I don’t get. She has had a famous relationship with JB and is the senior fairweather friend of Taylor swift. She can’t sing or act at ALL. And she doesn’t start any trends that I can see.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      She’s very pretty and know how to attach herself to the right people. That’s it. Being pretty, dating Bieber and being friends with Swift is enough to be this popular.

    • Naddie says:

      Same here. She is nothing special. Looks, voice, acting, personality, brains… I try to find but all I see is plainnes. Actually the only thing I found interesting about her is how deep her spoken voice is compared to her annoying singing voice.

    • Cassiopeia says:

      she had a hit show, makes movies, many hit songs etc.

  11. Sam says:

    This girl just got out of rehab for her supposed mental health (although others will tell you it was for drugs) and not even a few months later and she’s dating a guy who has a history of using AND is the ex of one of her friends. This is going to go fantatsic for both of them. No sarcasm or anything. I just wish someone would intervene for their sake.

    It doesn’t seem like Selena has the best taste in guys for whatever reasons.

    • kerfuffles says:

      Yeah. While I’m sure she’s dealing with some mental health issues, too, she supposedly has major issues with substance abuse. Dating a guy who loves drugs is….not going to end well. My first response when seeing those pics: “Selena, you in danger girl.”

  12. Joni says:

    This will not end well.

  13. Slowsnow says:

    Will Selena start spelling her name Selna?

  14. Squiggisbig says:

    Welp. I knew this was fake when sources said he thought she was “very talented.” Not even a huge weekend fan but she is less than half the singer he is.

    Probably for the best if it is fake because if there’s one thing he is straightforward about it is his love of drugs. And she has already had issues maintaining her sobriety.

    • OriginallyBlue says:

      Lmao same. Definitely thought it was fake, but calling her “extremely talented and sexy” sealed it.

  15. Karla says:


    She has such terrible taste.

  16. nicole says:

    Her type appears to be ‘canadian’.

  17. Lynnie says:

    Maybe she is trying to get some songs/rebrand her image as an edgier “it girl”? She’s not above pr relationships as the whole Zedd thing will show. I just hope it fizzles out quick I don’t need to see them and all their celeb friends/hanger-ons try to find squads and ways to promote this lol

    • Erica_V says:

      I was scrolling down to say this relationship has an Eau de Zedd wafting from it.

      And playing photo- assumption she is hanging on him and he is pulling away.

  18. Lucy says:

    Eh. Odd pairing to say the least. Hopefully he’ll treat her somewhat decently during their time together (I’m an Abel fan, but also heard of his ways).

  19. Racer says:

    Hopefully its a ploy for attention. Based on her history of drug use and emotional instability, this guy is not a good idea. If she just left rehab why is she dating someone who needs to be in rehab. He looks like an Ewok. Taylor, come get your girl!

  20. Sandra says:

    Hes fine AF but not sure Abel is the right guy for someone with alleged substance abuse problems.

  21. peanut says:

    Meh, I bet nothing comes from Bella’s side.

    I know someone that knows him very well and his opinion is that Abel/Bella were in an ‘open’ relationship for quite a while. She was around, and then she wasn’t, and then she was. Casual.

    • kerfuffles says:

      Well Bella unfollowed Selena on IG as soon as the pics came out, so there’s already something coming from Bella’s side.

      Even if the thing with Bella & Abel was casual, I can still understand why she’d be annoyed that a friend would hook up with him shortly after her.

      • peanut says:

        Oh for sure, I totally agree & I wouldn’t want to see any pictures, etc. either. I’m just saying that Bella will probably take the high road on this one, it won’t be a blowout. Bummer tho for all of us with the popcorn ready. LOL

  22. sage says:

    There is something suspicious about Selena Gomez…something about her I don’t trust.

    Like J-Lo and Drake, this looks like a PR relationship. It will be a lot more fun to watch J-Lo and Drakes relationship develop.

  23. nikkisixx says:

    Lol these pics remind me of the time when I was also dixmatized and very into a smooth talker and hanging off him like that when we went out. It didn’t end well.

  24. Livealot says:

    I hope her rabid fans attack her for moving on the way they attacked Bieber when he did.

  25. nikko says:

    She should be careful and not expect much because he’s player.

  26. mrspanda says:

    I don’t understand why this guy is such a player, he looks just like a small and regular kid? I must be getting old. She’s looking at the camera so it looks a bit staged to me.

  27. Roller74 says:

    Yaaaaaas! I can hardly wait to see what the back story is behind this hook up. Bella did Selena dirty in the past? Maybe vice versa? Oh lord, let’s sit back and watch it all fall apart lololol!

  28. KC says:

    But what are those pants/jeans she’s wearing? Do not like!😣
