How & when did it all start?

A famous singer The Weeknd and an actress and singer Selena Gomez had been dating for 10 months before calling it quits.

It all started in January 2017, when they were spotted by paparazzi in Santa Monica kissing and holding hands. These pictures immediately went viral.

According to the insiders, the singer always had a thing for Selena, explaining that she is very sexy and super talented.

Romantic couple

Despite all the rumors, speculations and pictures, neither of the celebrities confirmed their relationship. Yet, that same month they were seen enjoying the time at an Italian restaurant in LA. In addition, the two started following one another on social media which only heated up interest to their pair.

Being together

In January 2017 the artists went on a trip to Florence and Venice. A month later, they were seen relaxing on a luxurious yacht in California and in March the two lovebirds took a jet to Toronto for a romantic weekend.

Being official

Even though everybody knew they were a real deal, the singers made their first public appearance at the 2017 Met Gala in New York. In July 2017 they celebrated Gomez’s 25th birthday and according to the Daily Mail, the couple hung out in Soho till early morning. In September of the same year, Selena had a kidney transplant and her boyfriend was there for her, being her biggest supporter.

The end

In October 2017 it was announced that the two are no longer together, meaning that the union ended after just 10 months. The main reason for a split was a busy working schedule. In a month’s time, Selena confirmed this news, saying that they remained friends.
