Selena Gomez and The Weeknd have split after almost 10 months of dating.
“She and Abel have been going back and forth for a few months about their relationship,” says an insider. “It’s been hard with him being on tour and her shooting in New York. That wasn’t easy on them.”
While Gomez “always made an effort” to attend his shows when she could, “that played a part in them getting distant,” adds the insider. “It’s over for now, but they’re still in touch.”
The “Bad Liar” singer and Bella Hadid‘s ex began dating in January and made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Met Gala in NYC in May. They also traveled the world together as she joined him on his Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour.
The breakup also hasn’t been easy on the couple. “It’s been hard for them to come to the realization that this is the direction things were heading, but it’s been hard for months,” says the sources, who adds that Gomez is not back together with her ex Justin Bieber.
Meanwhile, an insider exclusively told Us that Bieber really wants to rekindle his relationship with Gomez.
“Justin really wants to get back with Selena,” an insider exclusively told Us. “He has been texting her nonstop and hangs out with her whenever he can. Selena insisted that they were just friends and that The Weeknd had nothing to worry about, but she can’t deny that she still loves Justin. He had such a big piece of her heart and was such a huge part of her life for so long. She can’t just let him go.”
