The drama on this one keeps on escalating.
First, we had pics of Disney diva Selena Gomez hanging out with her ex-boyf Justin Bieber. Soon after the news came out that the exes were spending time together again, people turned to The Weekend, the singer whom Gomez has been dating for almost a year now.
Indeed, before further rumours could fly, The Weeknd and Gomez announced their official split at the end of October.
Next thing you know, people are highly suspicious that Gomez and Bieber’s relationship, that was on-and-off from 2011 to 2014, could be back on in full-swing again. The pair were photographed going to a sports game together, where Beiber lent his jersey to the 25-year-old in a classic move of “chivalry”.
They were snapped riding bicycles around town together, looking so gleeful chasing each other and throwing their heads back in laughter that you’d think it’s all a trailer for some terrible new film.
All this is going on and being reported on – much to the delight of all the Jelena lovers who were in sad denial the two ever stopped loving each other since they broke up – but not so much welcome news for The Weeknd, who hasn’t really said anything about the couple’s reunion.
He seemed to be brooding, with fans noticing the singer went and unfollowed a bunch of Gomez’s friends and family on Instagram.

But now? It looks like a burn has been served right back at Jelena, with it being reported that The Weeknd is now going out with one of Bieber’s exes.
On Friday, the Starboy singer was photographed out with Bieber’s ex-girlfriend, Yovanna Venture. The 21-year-old model with a superhero’s name briefly dated Bieber back in 2015, but now seems to have eyes on her ex’s ex’s ex. It’s confusing, I know.
Venture and The Weeknd were at a nightclub in LA, and according to Us Weekly, they were out together the night before as well at rapper French Montana’s birthday party. Apparently, they were inseparable at the bash, with a source telling the publication they were holding hands the whole time.
“They arrived together,” the source said. “They were holding hands. He was there for a solid two hours with her and everywhere they went they held hands.”
“He was parading her around. He was trying to make it obvious that he was with someone. They were pretty affectionate and were together the entire night.”

The Weeknd and Gomez reportedly split due to his jam-packed touring schedule, with People reporting that “It’s been hard with him being on tour and her shooting in New York. That wasn’t easy on them.”
Bieber and Gomez started hanging out while she and The Weeknd were still together, and it was initially reported that he was fine that the exes were still friends. They reconnected following Gomez’s kidney transplant in summer, but the amount of time they’ve been spending together has certainly increased.
Whether The Weeknd really was so cool with it all is questionable, especially given his attempts to subtly erase Gomez from his social media and the fact that he’s now going after her new beau’s ex. It all seems a little petty to me. Sorry, a LOT petty.
