The Real Reason The Weeknd And Selena Gomez Split

Celebrity - News


The Weeknd and Selena Gomez seemed like the perfect couple when they started dating in January 2017. But according to a source cited by Page Six, The Weeknd just wasn't in the right place for a relationship, with the insider saying "Everyone wants love, but his focus is the business."

When People first reported that Gomez and The Weeknd had called it quits, an insider claimed that distance and differing work schedules played a huge part. "It's been hard with him being on tour and her shooting in New York. That wasn't easy on them," the source said.

Although the couple broke up to focus on their careers, Gomez swears that the two remained close. In November 2017, she told Billboard, "Something that I'm really proud of is that there's such a true friendship [between me and The Weeknd]. I truly have never experienced anything like that in my life."

She added, "We ended it as best friends, and it was genuinely about encouraging and caring [for each other], and that was pretty remarkable for me." Clearly, Gomez and The Weeknd moved on from their romance on positive terms.
