Breaking news: Selena Gomez and The Weeknd were caught making out last night in Santa Monica, California. This is not a drill. I repeat: This is not a drill.
But what the hell does this mean? Is this a new couple alert? Or are they just friends who sometimes passionately kiss when they think no one is looking? (What? You don’t have friends like that?)
So, here’s what we do know: TMZ snapped the pictures of Gomez and The Weeknd playing tonsil hockey after the duo had dinner at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica. Was it a first date? OMG: Maybe it was, like, their seventeenth date, and they’ve just been secretive up until this point? Those little hit-making sneaks!
Jokes aside, we know very little at this point. We don’t know if Gomez and The Weeknd are an official item or how long they’ve been hanging out, though it’s worth noting that a source at People claims this is “new and nothing serious.” All we know for sure is that they shared some food and smooches last night. Nothing more. Nothing less. See the latter activity in this Instagram post from TMZ, below:
There’s also no word on how long the two have known each other. Us Weekly claims they’re working on new music together, and we know their friendship is at least longer than one year, because they both performed at the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. (The Weeknd also performed at the 2016 show and had an awkward run-in with his ex-girlfriend Bella Hadid.)
Is Gomez his new girlfriend, though? Like we said, it’s all a mystery at this point. However, there is no denying these crazy kids have some serious ~chemistry~. They look so cozy and comfortable in these pictures; it almost makes me forget that I am tragically, hopelessly alone with only a three-day-old pizza to keep me warm.
The second we know more about Selena Gomez and The Weeknd’s courtship, y’all will be the first to know.
