After the public saw those pics of Selena Gomez and The Weeknd (real name: Abel Tesfaye) kissing outside a restaurant in Cali early this week (which we clearly did not see coming), new deets have emerged about their relationship.
A source revealed to E! Online that the two have been low-key seeing each other recently but then decided to not give effs about people finding out about it.
"At first, Selena and Abel wanted to keep their relationship a secret. But they've decided they really don't care if everyone knows about them."
Another source spoke about how Sel and Abel became and item:
"Selena was focusing on getting herself back together and Abel was just getting out of a relationship, plus putting out his new album. Abel and Bella also were on and off towards the end of their relationship, so getting into something brand new was not what Abel was looking for."
Abel, who broke up with Bella Hadid in November after more than a year of dating, apparently has been crushing on Selena for quite some time now:
"Abel though always had a thing for Selena. He thinks she is extremely talented and sexy. They recently started talking before the holidays but she has been on his radar before. They are on the same level with expectations and think the other is really fun. They are taking things slow and getting to know each other."
When exactly did the two started having a thing for each other? We can’t tell. But what we do know is that Sel was clearly a fan of his music as seen during the MTV VMAs in 2015 when she and bestie Taylor Swift were dancing to The Weeknd’s performance of "I Can’t Feel My Face."
And then a few months after, Selena and The Weeknd both performed during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show:
Do you think these instances could have been the start of ~*something new*~?
