Selena Gomez has apparently been working for The Weeknd.
By which we mean the following:
The singer has been working her tongue in and around the mouth of fellow singer The Weeknd, as evidenced by new photos that make it clear these stars are a lot more than friends.
Oh, yes, folks: these two are hooking up!
They are knocking boots! They are talking long walks along the beach at sunset! They are doing all kinds of romantic stuff!
We presume, at least, based on pictures shared on Us Weekly, E! News and other reliable outlets.
The musicians were spotted on a romantic dinner date at Los Angeles hotspot Giorgio Baldi last night, with an insider telling E! News that Gomez and The Weeknd were very clearly into each other.
"They were there for three hours! Just the two of them," the source tells E! of Selena and The Weeknd's evening out. "They came out and were so happy."
According to this same witness, Gomez and The Weeknd sat in the back room of the establishment and had their own personal server.
Afterwards, they engaged in some major public displays of affection, obviously proud of their romance and unafraid of anyone just walking by and seeing them swap spit.
To back up E!'s description of the night, a source relayed similar information to Us Weekly.
“They came out and they were so happy,” this tabloid writes, adding of the artists:
“They were hugging and kissing. … Selena was all over him, hugging, kissing [him]. She looked amazing and so incredibly happy and in love.”
The singers allegedly headed to Gomez’s house after their date.
We wonder what they did there...
The Weeknd most recently dated Bella Hadid, splitting from the model in November.
Gomez, of course, is best known in the relationship department for having been off and on (and then off... and on... and then off again...) with Justin Bieber for years.
But a turning point appears to have taken place over the summer after Selena inserted herself in Bieber's then-relationship with Sofia Richie.
She commented on an Instagram post in which Bieber asked fans to stop harassing Richie, leading to Justin deleting his account and turning his back on his ex.
Largely in response, Gomez eventually checked into a rehab facility and took a break from the spotlight to focus on her mental health.
But she's doing a lot better now!
"I recently took 90 days off. During that time I did not have my cellphone," she explained in Thrive Global's questionnaire, adding late last year:
"It was the most refreshing, calming, rejuvenating feeling. Now I rarely pick up my phone, and only limited people have access to me."
But The Weeknd is clearly one of the people on that list. And maybe the most important one at the moment.
As for where this romance is going? It's hard to say at the moment.
A separate source tells E! News that Selena and The Weeknd together is "something new" and that "it's nothing serious right now."
