The Weeknd and Selena Gomez End Their Rebound Relationship

One day after it was reported that The Weeknd was cool with Selena Gomez hanging out with Justin Bieber, The Weeknd and Selena Gomez have split.

But, like, he was still totally cool with Gomez hanging out with her ex. Just like Gomez was totally cool with The Weeknd getting jealous that Drake slept with his ex, Bella Hadid.

Note to people in relationships: don’t ever talk about your ex. This should be the first thing you learn in Relationship 101, but for some reason, everyone forgets this rule the moment they see their ex do something on social media. Creep all you want, but keep that s**t to yourself. If you don’t, you’re going to wind up like The Weeknd and Gomez. Single.

The two singers started dating ten months ago and it was a weird relationship from the start. Some accused Gomez of using him to further her music career while others accused Gomez of breaking girl code (Gomez and Gigi Hadid are friends through Taylor Swift. Bella is Gigi’s sister. Things get really complicated when you start playing six degrees of Taylor Swift). No one really accused The Weeknd of anything, unless you thought he was trying to start some Canadian singer drama by hooking up with Bieber’s ex.

No matter their reasons, it was still a weird relationship. Gomez went from Bieber to a straight and narrow guy with talent and The Weeknd went from Bella to a girl who just dated Justin Bieber.

According to sources, the two were having trouble for months as Gomez was filming stuff in New York and going on tour. The timing of Gomez re-connecting with Bieber and Weeknd wanting to re-connect with Bella is just pure coincidence, if you believe in that type of thing.

Let’s just call this what it was. A rebound for both parties. Gomez had been dating Bieber for like five years and The Weeknd had been dating Bella for almost two years. They’re both young, they were alone, and they found each other. Now, they’ve split. That’s it.

I look forward to Drake trying to hook up with Gomez by the end of November.
