Love was in the air at Coachella 2017 this past weekend!
And no one was having as much fun as Selena Gomez and her boyfriend The Weeknd, who were spotted packing on major PDA at the music festival. The brunette beauty finally posted her first selfie with the Grammy winner on Instagram, which quickly racked up over 6.5 million likes.
In the shot, Selena, 24, and The Weeknd — whose real name is Abel Tesfaye — are both wearing sunglasses, and the 27-year-old has his arm wrapped around her shoulder. Fans couldn’t help but gush over the duo’s intimate photo.
Coachella is the first big event that they’ve attended together, and sources told Hollywood Life that they’re being more open around their friends as well.
“Abel is making this grand gesture at Coachella and it’s basically a coming out party for them to be so public about their love,” an insider said. “It’s defining the next stage in their relationship and is showing Selena that the sky is the limit.”
The couple first sparked dating rumors back in January — just two months after The Weeknd’s split from his longtime girlfriend, Bella Hadid. Since then, their whirlwind romance has included dates around the world during his Starboy Legend of the Fall world tour.
But even though the couple seems happy, The Weeknd might not be the best influence on his girlfriend. Sources revealed to Life & Style that the former Disney Channel star’s mom, Mandy, “has heard the dirty and drug-related lyrics to Abel’s songs and she doesn’t approve of Selena hanging out and partying with him.” Given the actress’ stint in rehab last year, she thinks he’s “an inappropriate choice for Selena’s new healthy journey.”
But it doesn’t look like her mom can keep the two lovebirds apart, no matter how hard she tries! Scroll through the gallery below to see the best celebrity looks from Coachella.
