The Weeknd and Selena Gomez spotted kissing in Santa Monica

Move over Drake and Jennifer Lopez, there is a new hot rumoured couple on the scene. It seems Selena Gomez can't keep her hands to herself when it comes to being around Toronto's own The Weeknd. The singer was spotted locking lips with the GRAMMY-winning artist on Tuesday evening in Santa Monica.

In pictures published by TMZ, the musical duo was photographed kissing outside of Il Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi, where they enjoyed a romantic dinner for two.

An insider told E! News, "They were there for three hours! Just the two of them. They came out and were so happy." Selena, 24, draped her arms around the 26-year-old as they waited for their cars, before engaging in some serious sidewalk PDA.


Selena and The Weeknd might be music's hottest new couple.

News of the pair’s romantic date night comes two months after The Weekend split from model Bella Hadid— who is the younger sister of fellow Taylor Swiftsquad member, Gigi Hadid.

The Earned It singer and brunette beauty called it quits in November after almost two years of dating. Shortly after their breakup, the exes reunited on the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion in Paris.

After the show, Bella shared a photo of herself walking the runway alongside her former love on Instagram. Attached to the photo she wrote “I can't believe it! I was smiling SO HUGE on the inside I promise!!!! The most fun and nerve racking experience of my life but I wish I could do it over and over and over again!!!!! Thank you @theweeknd for being the best and most incredible performer on the planet. You KILLED it, as always," before adding a heart emoji.

Bella walked in her first Victoria's Secret show last year.

Ironically enough, Selena and the Starboy crooner both headlined the lingerie brand's annual show in New York back in 2015, where the Weeknd was snapped bowing down to the songstress. Earlier this month, the Disney alum, who famously dated another Canadian boy, Justin Bieber, reflected on her love life on Instagram's new live video feature.

During the broadcast the starlet admitted that she was wants to focus on meaningful relationships. “I would say the biggest lesson that I’ve been learning since 2016 would definitely be awareness," Selena said. “I think it’s really important to be aware of like, the people that you’re surrounding yourself with, the people that are purposefully the ones you are spending time with."
