Jelena shippers are celebrating the reunion of Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber — even if they are just friends. Not surprisingly, it turns out The Weeknd, was never a fan of the reconciliation. Originally, the “I Feel It Coming” singer didn’t care about the renewed friendship following Selena’s kidney transplant, but that quickly changed.
“He trusted Selena, but he really didn’t trust Justin,” a source told Us Weekly. Shortly after Selena, 25, and Justin, 23, were seen grabbing breakfast together, it was revealed that Selena had split from The Weeknd (real name: Abel Tesfaye) after 10 months of dating. That’s one reason to go running back to your ex…
And the feeling is mutual. After the pop princess was spotted kissing The Weeknd earlier this year, the Biebs dissed the R&B crooner multiple times. “Hell no I can’t listen to a Weeknd song,” he told TMZ when asked if he listens to his music, before adding, “That s–t’s whack.” Prior to that, he name-dropped The Weeknd during an Instagram Live Q&A with his fans — and not in a positive way.
As Life & Style previously reported, Justin was contacted by Selena’s mom Mandy following her stint in rehab, and she asked him not to call, text, email, or see her daughter. “[Selena’s] family feels that no one has ever gotten under her skin like Justin and, ultimately, he affected her in a deeply negative way,” a source told Life & Style. “Mandy really believes that Selena will be able to heal faster without him.” It was revealed late last year that the Wizards of Waverly Place star’s obsession with her former boyfriend contributed to her downward spiral.
“Her addiction to Justin is what everyone is afraid is going to take the ultimate toll,” a different insider shared. “Justin takes her to a dark place mentally, and she really can’t let go… She was stalking Justin on social media.” Added the source, “She became a different person around him. She was extremely jealous and possessive and felt like she had to keep up with him to keep him. So she would drink and smoke, and then she got into weed and partying.” Hopefully, the Justin and Selena are in a better place today.
