If you’ve been paying attention to celebrity news and gossip lately, you’d know that Selena Gomez and The Weeknd broke up. While no one knows the true story behind their breakup, many think it has to do with her recent reunion with her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber. Of course, we’ll never know the truth behind their split, but, reps from both parties have said that the two were just on “opposite schedules” and touring in different locations. We all know that long distance relationships are hard for the average person, I’m sure it’s no different for a celebrity. People thought that the breakup was just “gossip” for a while – until Gomez was caught kissing Bieber in public.
It’s pretty hard to be in a relationship with someone while you’re kissing someone else – so I’m going to say it’s definitely over between Gomez and The Weeknd (for now at least). But, more than just the kissing in public with her ex, Biebs, Gomez took one further step to prove to people she’s not interested in The Weeknd any longer. According to Elle, she officially unfollowed The Weeknd on Instagram.
Now, it may seem like a small observation, but let’s be real: if you’re cutting someone out of your life for good, you don’t want to see them on your feed ever again. It’s like cutting the final chord between you and another person. I know when I broke up with my ex, I unfollowed him on social media (including Snapchat) because – what’s the point of staying in touch with his life if I’m no longer going to be in it? I’m sure Gomez feels the same.
Fans may be a bit confused because Gomez doesn’t follow Bieber at all on Instagram, even though she’s kissing him and hanging out with him rather often. Maybe she doesn’t want to make things serious? Fans have been speculating that the Gomez/Bieber relationship was strictly for PR, as the two have music coming out and are performing at some awards shows coming up.
@selenagomez upcoming projects, upcoming album, upcoming interviews, magazines covers, upcoming awards. Selena PR team needed @justinbieber to help her career because her songs are trash and ugly like her personality her songs flop and her personality and lies make her ugly. pic.twitter.com/3r13VDIhnI— BTS (@baldwinstruth) November 11, 2017
I think it is Fake News that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are back together.— Nicholas Wowk (@NickWowk) November 4, 2017
Even if they are faking it for publicity, one thing is for sure – it’s cost her the relationship she had with The Weeknd entirely. But, hey, maybe Abel wasn’t giving her enough press (we know how crazy Jelena shippers can be). Sucks to suck.
