A moment of silence for
their our lost love.
Singer and actress Selena Gomez broke up with her boyfriend, Abel Makkonen (The Weeknd) after dating for 10 months, according to the mainstream media.
“She and Abel have been going back and forth for a few months about their relationship,” an insider told People magazine. “It’s been hard with him being on tour and her shooting in New York. That wasn’t easy on them.”
The distance was bigger than the couple’s love, who just month ago shared a passionate kiss on the red carpet at a Harper’s Bazaar event in New York. “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,” the source added.
The insider confirms that Selena and Abel “remain friends” despite their breakup and that “they have been very grown-up about it.” However, shortly before the news on their split broke, The Weeknd unfollowed Selena’s close family and friends from Instagram, including her mother, her assistant Theresa Mingus, and her best friend and kidney transplant donor Francia Raisa.
Gomez and Makkonnen’s breakup comes only days after Selena and her ex Justin Bieber were seen together on three different occasions during the same week. Despite the reconciliation rumors, the insider denied that the split had anything to do with Jelena.
The former Disney girl and The Weeknd began dating back in January, but they went Instagram official until April at Coachella. Since then, the couple never hid their love from the cameras, although they publicly spoke very little about their romance.
Although, today, there’s not much to say anymore.
