A look back at Gomez and The Weeknd’s dating history

Shortly after the “Can’t Feel My Face” crooner called it quits from longtime girlfriend, Bella Hadid, he and the actress began sparking romance rumors after being spotted packing on the PDA outside Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica.

The pair made their relationship Instagram official in April 2017 after attending Coachella Music Festival together.

The following month, Gomez and the Weeknd made their red carpet debut as a couple during that year’s Met Gala, where they didn’t even try to hide their affection for each other while posing for photos.
