Selena Gomez & The Weeknd Split

Actress Selena Gomez and singer The Weeknd aka Abel Tesfaye have called it quits after nearly a year together!

A source told People, "She and Abel have been going back and forth for a few months about their relationship. It’s been hard with him being on tour and her shooting in New York. That wasn’t easy on them.”

“It’s over for now, but they’re still in touch,” the insider added. "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.”

Selena and The Weeknd sparked dating rumors in January and went public with their relationship at the Met Gala in May. At the time, she explained her decision to be open about the relationship, telling Ryan Seacrest, "It’s really hard when I would want to spend so much time hiding things. It’s too much pressure, and I think everyone gets over everything eventually… I just want to be happy. If that’s me just being myself, then I don’t really care.”

The breakup news came just a day after Gomez was spotted having breakfast with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber in photos obtained by TMZ, but they are not back together. A source told Us Weekly, "Justin and Selena came in by themselves around 9:30 this morning. They grabbed breakfast, blueberry smoothies with whipped cream, and were just talking — none of the staff really recognized them. Justin paid for both of them, they looked to be in a good mood, they just sat at a table and chatted for a while, no hand holding or anything, the conversation seemed lighthearted. They sat at a table inside where they had a little more privacy. They stayed for about 25 minutes before leaving together."

Justin and Selena, who dated on and off from 2011-2015, were also seen at church together in Los Angeles.
