Is Jelena still in love? While Selena Gomez had feelings for Justin Bieber in the past, she now realizes that she is better off without him. In fact, she's been spending plenty of time with the Weeknd. They just had a steamy date at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica.
Gomez and The Weeknd reportedly spent three hours at the restaurant on Tuesday night. They sat in the back with their own server before engaging in some major PDA outside the establishment.
"They were hugging and kissing," a source told E! News. "His driver waited for them and her driver pulled up shortly after. They were super affectionate. Selena was all over him. Hugging him, kissing. She looked amazing so incredibly happy and in love." An insider added to People that the couple is "new and nothing serious.”
And Gomez's mom, Mandy, is likely happy about her daughter's new beau. That's because she wants Gomez to move on from Justin Bieber. The mom even reportedly told Bieber not to call or text her daughter after she left rehab.
"[Selena’s] family feels that no one has ever gotten under her skin like Justin and, ultimately, he affected her in a deeply negative way," a source said. "[She] really believes that Selena will be able to heal faster without him."
Supposed insiders previously told the same tabloid that Gomez's family actually blames Bieber for her recent rehab stay. Sources claimed that Gomez "became a different person around him" and started to party and do drugs because she "felt like she had to keep up with him to keep him."
That also has not been confirmed. But Gomez knows that Bieber wasn't the best influence on her. And even if her parents aren't telling Bieber to stay away from her, Gomez is doing her part to distance herself from her ex. She reportedly refused to give him her new phone number. In fact, she has cut many negative people out of her life.
"I recently took 90 days off," she recently told Thrive Global. "During that time I did not have my cell phone. It was the most refreshing, calming, rejuvenating feeling. Now I rarely pick up my phone, and only limited people have access to me."
Justin Bieber, for his part, also has no immediate desire to reconcile with Selena Gomez. He was recently spotted hanging out with ex Hailey Baldwin again. He also boarded his private jet with a mystery woman. He is enjoying playing the field and doesn't want to settle down with anyone right now.
