Jelena shippers have been going strong on the internet for years...
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez shippers should look away now. Because we appear to have a new celebrity couple in town, and it’s not them.
Yup. If you’ve looked at the internet since last night, you’re bound to have come face-to-face with photographs of Selena and The Weeknd kissing.
And if that’s not proof that two people are in the dating phase, we don’t really know what is.
Leaving celebrity hang-out Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica together, the pair put on a pretty cute display, with Selena wrapping her arms around the Starboy singer’s shoulders before they leaned in for a public smooch. Aw.
The pictures, captured by TMZ, imply that the famous pair are happy to take things public.
But, due to the fact that they’re both pretty famous, they also each have some pretty famous baggage. Well, everyone has an ex, right?
The Weeknd only split from his ex girlfriend Bella Hadid in November, so it’s understandable that she appears to have reacted to the news, having unfollowed Selena Gomez on Instagram.
BUT “WHAT ABOUT JUSTIN BIEBER?”, fans are crying.
Selena and Justin have on/off dated for what feels like forever. Together they’ve been #CoupleGoals, broken up (and broken the hearts of millions of fans at the same time) and had the (very public) social media fight to end ALL social media fights, resulting in the Biebs deleting his Insta’ account.

Since their split, JB has posted numerous throwback pictures from when they dated, leaving Jelena shippers holding out for a possible reunion.
But last night, the photos of Selena and The Weeknd emerged on the internet. And many flocked to Justin’s social media accounts to see how he might have reacted.
Fan comments have included: ‘I can’t see her with someone else except Justin Bieber 🙁 It’s not that I don’t like The Weeknd but still :/’, ‘So Selena Gomez and The Weeknd are dating. Bella Hadid unfollowed Selena, but what’s Justin Bieber gonna do?’ and ‘Jelena 5 ever
But, so far, the What Do You Mean singer hasn’t commented on the news. The last tweet to go out from his official Twitter account was about his Netflix movie, Never Say Never, which went out on January 7th.
The pair haven’t actually been together for quite a long time, and nobody really knows what goes down in a relationship except for the two people in it.
Selena should be able to move on, without judgement. And after her stint in rehab last year, we’re just pleased to see her smiling.
