The Weeknd ‘hold­ing back’ on Gomez in spite of steamy pic­ture

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

THE WEEKND is re­port­edly “hold­ing back” from ru­moured girl­friend Selena Gomez af­ter they were spot­ted kiss­ing.

The 26-year-old singer – real name Abel Tes­faye – was pic­tured kiss­ing the Hands To My­self hit­maker out­side a restau­rant in Santa Mon­ica, Cal­i­for­nia, on Wed­nes­day, but de­spite the re­ports of a bud­ding ro­mance be­tween the pair, it seems that Tes­faye isn’t quite ready to give the brunette beauty his all.

The Mi­ami, Florida-born body lan­guage ex­pert Dr Lil­lian Glass said of the pic­tures: “His body lan­guage says he is hold­ing back.

“When she’s kiss­ing him, his ex­pres­sion says it’s too much. He’s also look­ing in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion.

“When cou­ples are look­ing in dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions like this, it sig­nals that they are not like­minded.”

Mean­while, sources say the 24-year-old pop megas­tar is “happy” with the Can’t Feel My Face singer – who re­cently called time on his ro­mance with model Bella Ha­did – as he “makes her feel se­cure”.

An in­sider told Hol­ly­woodLife. com: “She is happy and doesn’t mind shar­ing that with the world.

“Abel makes her feel se­cure and Selena has noth­ing to hide.

“Selena gets pas­sion­ate about things real fast and that is ex­actly what she is do­ing with The Weeknd.

“She finds him charm­ing and is en­am­oured by the per­son he is and the way he presents him­self to her.”

The news comes af­ter it was re­ported the cou­ple “re­ally don’t care” if their re­la­tion­ship goes pub­lic.

One source said: “At first, Selena and Abel wanted to keep their re­la­tion­ship a se­cret. But they’ve de­cided they re­ally don’t care if every­one knows about them.”

It was also claimed the Same Old Love singer was a dream come true for the Star­boy mu­si­cian, as he’s “al­ways had a thing” for her.

A source said: “Abel, though, al­ways had a thing for Selena. He thinks she is ex­tremely tal­ented and sexy.

“They re­cently started talk­ing be­fore the hol­i­days but she has been on his radar be­fore.

“They are on the same level with ex­pec­ta­tions and think the other is re­ally fun.

“They are tak­ing things slow and get­ting to know each other.” – Bang Me­dia
