Selena Gomez has confirmed her relationship with The Weeknd by following him on Instagram.
The ‘Hands To Myself’ hitmaker has been reportedly romancing the ‘Starboy’ rapper – real name Abel Tesfaye – since the pair were spotted locking lips earlier this month, and she has proved things are heating up between them by clicking the follow button on his profile on the photo-sharing app, as she only follows 256 people.
It was recently claimed the pair talk “every day” and have a “sexy and flirty relationship”. A source said: “He really likes her. They text every day. They have a really sexy and flirty relationship. They laugh and like each other’s personalities.”
And whilst it seems things are progressing fast, sources insist they are “just having fun” for the time being and aren’t getting too serious. An insider previously said: “As of now, they are just having fun and enjoying each other.” However, one person who is not so convinced by their relationship is the 26-year-old singer’s ex-girlfriend Bella Hadid.
The 20-year-old model thinks Selena, 24, is just using The Weeknd. The brunette beauty has reportedly warned Abel about Selena’s real intentions but he isn’t listening. A source said: “Bella has reached out to Abel a few times and told him Selena is using him. He thinks she’s just jealous and isn’t listening to her.”
Selena and Abel’s relationship is said to have come about after the pair started “working on very sexy music” together. An insider said: “They started hanging as friends and it became romantic. They’re working on very sexy music, so it spilled over.” However, one person who won’t be listening to their music anytime soon is Selena’s ex Justin Bieber. The ‘Cold Water’ hitmaker was recently asked if he can listen to The Weeknd’s tunes, and said: “Hell no I can’t listen to a Weeknd song! That s***’s wack.”
