It’s official, folks.
Selena Gomez and The Weeknd are a thing.
They’re not hooking up; they’re not friends with benefits, they’re dating – and it’s a nightmare for people like us who feel compelled to come up with a catchy nickname for every celebrity couple. (Seleknd? Weelena?! Nothing works!)
Selena and The Weeknd (who we’re just gonna start calling by his real name, Abel Tesfaye, because we’re sick of seeing that squiggly red line all over our screen) were spotted on a group date last night, which is interesting for a couple of reasons.
First of all, group dates are a sure sign of relationships.
If you’re just casually gettin’ it in with someone you don’t introduce them to your friends, unless stringing people along and getting your entire social circle in on the act is, like, your thing.
Also interesting is the makeup of the crowd:
Yes, as you can see, Jaden Smith and French Montana were along for the star-studded Dave & Buster’s excursion.
The conversations between Selena, French, and Jaden must have been pretty interesting.
Selena: “My ex-boyfriend is banging Kourtney Kardashian.”
French: “Really? I used to go out with Khloe.”
Jaden: “Small world! I used to stalk Kylie like it was my job!”
*everyone takes one big step away from Jaden*
The group didn’t leave the arcade until 3 am, which is sure to bolster rumors about The Weeknd being a bad influence on Selena, but sources say they appeared to be sober and energetic as they strolled through the parking lot.
Which is really no surprise.
It’s Dave and Buster’s; have you ever had a cocktail there?
It’s like someone whispered “shot of vodka” over the rim of a pint glass full of fruit juice.
You’d go into diabetic shock before you ever worked up a buzz.
Anyway, what’s really important here is that these two are clearly an item.
Sources say Selena has fallen harder for Tesfaye than she ever did for Bieber, which is gotta be royally pissing the Biebs off.
Just one more reason to love this relationship!
Best of luck, you crazy kids!
