After a few short months as a couple, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd decided to go their separate ways. A source reveals that things just didn’t work out between the two and making time for each other became difficult.

Due to The Weeknd touring around the world and Gomez’s filming schedule, the two just could not find time to spend with one another.

Just one day before the news of  Gomez and The Weeknd’s split came to light, she was spotted having breakfast with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber.

Many believe that Gomez spending time with Bieber could have played a factor in the breakup, but that has never been confirmed.

Since splitting, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd have not rekindled their short-lived relationship. The Weeknd has since gotten back together with Bella Hadid.

As for Selena Gomez, she has been surrounding herself with close friends and is currently taking the time to focus on herself.
