Selena Gomez and The Weeknd are taking their relationship to the next level.
The “Starboy” singer (real name: Abel Tesfaye) has met her mom, Mandy — but sources reveal exclusively to Life & Style that Selena’s mother is not impressed.
“Mandy has met Abel and thinks he is respectful in person, but she doesn’t think he’s a good influence on Selena,” a source says, before adding that she doesn’t approve of his “dirty and drug-related lyrics.”
Additionally, Mandy, 40, is not the only person seeing red flags when it comes to the romance between Selena, 24, and The Weeknd, 27.
“A lot of Selena’s friends and family fear that she’ll go down the wrong path again,” the source adds. “They feel she needs to be surrounded by healthy people.”
The former Disney Channel star recently spent 90 days in a rehab facility for what she claimed was lupus-related panic attacks and anxiety, but that may not be the case.
Sources told Life & Style last year that her ex Justin Bieber was partly to blame for her breakdown.
“Justin is such poison to Selena,” an insider said. “Even when he isn’t around, she is still self-destructing because of him.”
The source continued, “Her addiction to Justin is what everyone is afraid is going to take the ultimate toll. Justin takes her to a dark place mentally, and she really can’t let go.”
Selena’s mom also secretly reached out to Justin, 23, and asked him to stay away from her daughter post-rehab.
“Her 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.”
The heart wants what it wants, mom!
