Are Selena Gomez and The Weeknd an item?

Published: January 12, 2017

The heart wants what it wants. And according to, it wants hugs.

In a rather surprising turn of events, it looks like Selena Gomez and The Weeknd (real name: Abel Tasfaye) are spending lots of time together. The singers were spotted outside an Italian restaurant in Santa Monica on Tuesday night, with Gomez’s arms wrapped around Tasfaye. Photos of the couple locked in the embrace surfaced on TMZ soon after, with one even showing them kissing.

Naturally, the pictures have the gossip mills churning and according to a source, Gomez and Tasfaye are indeed, an item. The latter ended his year-and-a-half-long relationship with model Bella Hadid in November while Gomez is yet to publicly date anyone since her relationship with Justin Bieber ended. She is seemingly still on a personal break from music to treat her lupus, while Tesfaye is set to kick off his headlining world tour come February 17.
