All right, fam, confession time: I was never a fan of Selena Gomez and The Weeknd. Not as artists—I mean, like, as a couple. That’s right, because I still to this day have not gotten over Bella Hadid and The Weeknd’s breakup. They were kind of perfect together, if you ask me. Both dark and brooding, both kinda ugly ducklings respective to other people in their fields… I shipped them hard. Even after they broke up (says the girl who’s still rooting for Nick and Mariah to work out their differences). But all this is a moo point, because Selena Gomez and The Weeknd broke up officially.
Multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE on Monday that the couple called it quits after 10 months of dating. Wow, is that all it’s been? I’ve had cups in my room for longer than that. But okay, sure. 10 months. “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.” Like, sure, that’s got to be tough. But they’ve been going back and forth about their relationship for a few months?? Their relationship has only existed for a few months to begin with. That’s dramatic.
The source also said, “It’s over for now, but they’re still in touch.” And, once again for the record, you can all miss me with that “for now” and “they still keep in touch” shit. Stop perpetuating the narrative that exes need to hang out!! Let me tell you, if you’re not actively boning or co-parenting a child, there are zero valid reasons to be hanging out with your ex. Do you hear me? I said zero. None. Nada. Zip.
And while we’re on the subject of hanging out with your ex, guess who’s hanging out with her ex? Selena Gomez. Yeah. With Justin Bieber. Selena and Justin were spotted getting breakfast together over the weekend, and if that’s not a clear-cut indicator that they’re already back on the bang wagon, IDK what is. (No, sorry, you’re right, “bang wagon” is not, nor will it ever be, a real thing.) The same insider claims that they’re not back together, but I’m buying that like I’m buying Taylor Swift’s new album, aka I’m not.
What’s more, TMZ reported that last week, Justin stopped by Selena’s house and stayed until midnight, so like, come the fuck on. He’s staying till midnight? They’re getting breakfast together, in public? Do I really need to spell this out for you? No, because I already did. See above.
So did Selena Gomez dump The Weeknd for Justin Bieber? My vote is obviously yes, but only time (and Instagram Stories) will tell. Stay vigilant. Stay woke.
