The news broke on Monday morning by People magazine that claimed the two had been having trouble for ‘months’ because of their difficult schedules – while he has been on tour, she was filming a Woody Allen movie A Rainy Day In New York in NYC.
Selena Gomez has split from boyfriend of 10 months, The Weeknd.
The timing is interesting as in the past week the Fetish singer, 25, has been spotted with her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber three times. On Sunday they were seen getting a vegan breakfast together in LA.

‘She and Abel have been going back and forth for a few months about their relationship,’ an insider told People. ‘It’s been hard with him being on tour and her shooting in New York. That wasn’t easy on them.’
It was added that while the pinup made an effort to see the Starboy singer while he as touring, it was not enough. ‘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.’
It may have been hard for him to see Gomez kissing her co-star Timothée Chalamet several times as she filmed A Rainy Day In New York.
The couple went public in January when they were spotted being affectionate outside of Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, California.
Since then they have been seen together at the Met Gala in May and the Harper’s Bazaar Icons event, both in NYC. She was last seen with him at his September 16 concert in Philadelphia.

While they were not seen being affectionate with each other, they did seem to be close as they faced each other.
It’s the third sighting of the exes hanging out in recent weeks, as Justin was also seen visiting Selena at her home last Sunday, staying until around midnight.

Though it is not known she is no longer dating The Weeknd – whose real name is Abel Tesfaye – as recently as Sunday evening it was claimed that the singer ‘doesn’t care’ that the former flames are hanging out.
One source told TMZ that 27-year-old ‘is well aware Selena and Justin are talking,’ while another said that the Toronto native ‘doesn’t think Selena talking to Justin again is weird at all’ and ‘doesn’t care.’
A third insider said that The Weekend ‘has been on tour and she’s been traveling back and forth to LA, but they are 100 percent still on.’
That doesn’t seem to be the case now.
The timing appears to be perfect for Selena and Justin to get back together.

And Bieber is no doubt relishing Gomez’s single status as he has for two years been trying to get back together with Selena.
He also has made fun of Weeknd, putting down his music in videos shared by TMZ. It was clear the former YouTube star was not happy the artist was dating his teen love.
Justin and Selena have been on better terms after Selena underwent a kidney transplant this past summer, getting a kidney from her close friend, TV actress Francia Raisa.
On Monday she talked to the Today show about her ordeal.

‘Selena is simply trying to make peace with Justin after her illness,’ a source told US Weekly on Wednesday. ‘He has been great to her since her surgery and they are on good terms right now.’
The duo famously dated between the years of 2011 and 2014, and a bit of tension revealed itself in the summer of 2016 when they bickered on Instagram, ultimately leading Justin to deactivate his account for six months.
But things have softened since then, as the insider told the publication that the former Disney diva and Canadian pop sensation ‘got back in touch recently through their friends and have seen each other at church.’
Another insider said that ‘Justin and Selena recently started speaking,’ noting that the ‘church they go to’ – the celebrity-laden Hillsong Church – was the common bond that reunited the former lovers.

‘The community there is pretty tight knit and Justin and Selena have a lot of mutual friends who brought them back together,’ the insider said of the church.
Other members are Kourtney Kardashian, Hailey Baldwin and Hailee Steinfeld.
Bieber has reportedly dated both Kourtney and Hailey.
Justin and Selena, according to the source, have ‘realized it was time to grow past their history and move on,’ and have ‘grown up a lot in the past couple of years and are mature about the situation.’
Also on Monday, a family source told TMZ that they are not happy Selena is talking to Justin again.
One family member is quoted as telling the site: ‘Justin is a vile human and will never be accepted by us. As long as she is even speaking to him in any way, it is not only disrespectful to everyone around her, it is disrespectful to herself.’
