According to E! News, the duo—who started dating in January—have decided to go their separate ways, and it was a decision that was a long time coming. In fact, a source disclosed that they’ve been discussing the fate of their relationship since the summer.
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. They have been open and honest about it and where they were going. Distance definitely played a factor.
The news comes as no major surprise, considering Gomez’s recent hang outs with her ex, Justin Bieber. However, a close source confided that Bieber “did not play a factor” in Gomez’s relationship with The Weeknd coming to an end.
Over the past two weekends, Gomez and Bieber were spotted hanging out at Gomez’s home, grabbing breakfast and attending church together in Westlake Village, Calif.
It was reliably gathered that Gomez and The Weeknd split before she met up with Bieber on Sunday and there’s “nothing romantic” going on between them. Still, another source noted that The Weeknd was “upset” to see them hanging out “twice in the same week.”
