The twosome’s on and off relationship hit a breaking point in 2015. After they split, Justin and Hailey’s friendship turned romantic. The “Sorry” crooner and the model were spotted making out on New Year’s Eve in December 2015.

That summer, The Weeknd continued touring while Gomez underwent a kidney transplant. Despite having to travel around the world for his performances, the musician reportedly planned his commitments around Gomez’s surgery and recovery so that he could be by her side as much as possible. The musician even seemingly offered to donate one of his own kidneys to Gomez, referencing the situation in his song “Call Out My Name” with the lyrics “I almost cut a piece of myself for your life.” In early 2015, Gomez began working on new music with producer Zedd (born Anton Zaslavski) — and dating rumors soon followed.

In a truly WTF move, The Weeknd registers a new song called “Like Selena,” due to come out in only a matter of days. Selena talks about the split publicly in an interview with Billboard, saying that even though it ended with The Weeknd, things are good between them. Selena and Abel travel to Italy together, first visiting Florence, where they rent out an entire restaurant for a private dinner, then Venice, where they enjoy a boat ride.


From Justin Bieber to The Weeknd to Chainsmokers member Drew Taggart, Selena is no stranger to public relationships, but that doesn’t make them any easier. Gomez was linked to Kylie Jenner’s ex, rapper Tyga, in summer 2022. Someone spotted Tyga and Gomez leaving a restaurant through different exits at the same time. Photos surfaced of Selena Gomez and Andrea Iervolino in late summer 2022 getting cozy on an Italian vacation. However, sources close to Gomez denied anything romantic was going on and said that she was enjoying the single life and not dating anyone specifically at that time. Apparently, Gomez briefly dated singer Charlie Puth, but no one really knew about it until he revealed that she broke his heart.

Most recently, fans speculated in fall 2021 that Gomez and actor Chris Evans could be dating after picking up on various clues via social media. However, the rumored relationship was never confirmed by either party. News reported in early February that Khadra was seen having dinner in Los Angeles with the famed Blinding Lights singer, but a source told the site “The Weeknd and Simi are not dating,” adding, “They’ve been friends for years.” According to those same sources, The Weeknd has had his eye on Selena Gomez for quite a long time. We have to wonder if that means that he had a total crush on her even when he was dating Bella Hadid? Things are getting more and more dramatic and we’re sure that this is not the end of the story.

A few months later, it’s reported that Gomez cut her Revival Tour short to seek treatment at a facility in Tennessee. I started to have panic attacks right before getting onstage, or right after leaving the stage. Basically I felt I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t capable,” she later told Vogue.

Gomez and Bieber headed to St. Lucia to ring in 2011, with photos surfacing of the pair kissing on a yacht. By February, the couple had made their red carpet debut at the Vanity Fair Oscars cancel account party. After fending off romance rumors for years, Bieber was spotted kissing Baldwin while on a New Year’s vacation in St. Barts — and even shared a snap of the sultry smooch himself.

Gomez shared another memento of her then-boyfriend with the world. The duo caught a good deal of attention when they hit up Coachella, where Gomez posted her first couples picture on her own Instagram account. Tesfaye finally made things Instagram-official by posting a photo of Gomez kissing him to his profile. The Weeknd posted an Instagram of himself staring at the jellyfish in Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada. Hadid unfollowed the “Bad Liar” singer on Instagram, further fueling the rumors of Gomez and Tesfaye’s budding relationship. Unfortunately, things imploded between them and she ended up releasing a couple of heartbreaking songs about him while he quickly got married to young model, Hailey Baldwin.

The couple also rented out a movie theatre for a private screening of Get Out. The musicians reportedly first met at the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, where they both performed. The occasion marked the first time they were photographed together.

“And I felt like this was a great way to just say, you know, it’s done, and I understand that, and I respect that, and now here I am stepping into a whole other chapter.” One month after Baldwin confirmed that the pair had “moved past” a stretch of not speaking and the “weirdness that went on” between them, they were spotted together at church and later at a nightclub in Miami. “They weren’t getting along and decided to take a break,” a Bieber source told PEOPLE. “It doesn’t seem like a big deal and they will probably be fine soon again.” The former flames continued to fuel rumors that they had reunited after Gomez’s split from The Weeknd was officially confirmed. The duo were seen riding bikes together and Gomez was spotted wearing Bieber’s hockey jersey while cheering him on at a game.

The musicians channeled Old Hollywood glamour at the 2011 AMAs, where Bieber performed and Gomez presented. They packed on the PDA on the red carpet, with Bieber adorably carrying his girlfriend’s train at one point. The news of his rumored relationship comes only months after The Weeknd was believed to be dating actress Angelina Jolie. The Weeknd and Khadra were seen at his 32nd birthday party on February 19 in Las Vegas after a video surfaced of the pair kissing.

“I adore Zedd a lot and I definitely had a thing with him, which was nice,” Gomez admitted on New Zealand’s The Edge Afternoons in June 2015. ” she said on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. In 2015, Gomez confirmed she thought Captain America star Chris Evans was a hunk (because, well, who doesn’t?). Gomez and Orlando Bloom were first rumored to be a “thing” back in 2014 during one of her off-again periods with Justin Bieber—who himself was rumored to have hooked up with Bloom’s ex Miranda Kerr. However, Gomez and Bloom’s current fiancée Katy Perry each poo-pooed the talk on Twitter as a “conspiracy” and not anything to be taken seriously.

“It’s such a public thing. It’s just hard for the both of us. But you know, she’s a great woman. I love her [to] this day.” Their relationship didn’t last much longer though, with a source telling PEOPLE in March that “they were an item, but they are no longer together.” Despite their split, the duo remained friends and were spotted hanging out in 2015. When Gomez was asked about their previous relationship shortly after, she called it “puppy love.” Selena Gomez and The Weeknd dated for 10 months before they decided to head their separate ways.
