Selena with Weeknd to boost sales, says Bieber

Strate­gic ca­reer move, her ex cyn­i­cally claims

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS - BANG ME­DIA

JUSTIN Bieber thinks Selena Gomez’s ro­mance with The Weeknd is a cyn­i­cal plot de­signed to boost record sales.

The Sorry hit-maker dated Gomez on and off from 2010, and is re­fus­ing to be­lieve his former love in­ter­est is re­ally dat­ing The Weeknd, who has been work­ing on new mu­sic with the 24-year-old beauty.

Bieber, 22, thinks the sup­posed re­la­tion­ship is a strate­gic move on the part of Gomez, who has pre­vi­ously dated Nick Jonas, Zedd and him­self in the weeks be­fore re­leas­ing new ma­te­rial, claims TMZ.

Mean­while, Gomez is re­port­edly un­con­cerned about up­set­ting Bella Ha­did with her re­la­tion­ship with The Weeknd.

The Heart Wants What It Wants singer was seen kiss­ing the Can’t Feel My Face singer/ song­writer/pro­ducer ear­lier this month, prompt­ing ex-girl­friend Ha­did to un­fol­low her on In­sta­gram.

One source said: “Selena was al­ways the girl who stayed away from a lot of the Tay­lor Swift crew, ex­cept for Tay­lor. She pre­ferred to be one-on-one with Tay­lor and didn’t like be­ing a part of the whole squad thing.”

An­other in­sider stressed that since Gomez is not es­pe­cially close to Ha­did or her sis­ter Gigi, her new re­la­tion­ship is not a big is­sue.

The source said: “Selena is not good friends with ei­ther Gigi or Bella. She knows them through other peo­ple, but they are just ac­quain­tances.

“She is friendly with them, but not friends… Selena and Gigi were never fond of each other, so Selena def­i­nitely doesn’t have any stip­u­la­tions about hook­ing up with or dat­ing Bella’s ex.”

Ha­did and The Weeknd split two months ago, but the 20-year-old model re­port­edly still has feel­ings for him.

A source said: “She is ac­tu­ally not over The Weeknd. She still loves him. They are on fine terms, but she is bit­ter about the ro­mance with Selena.

“She was not happy when all that gos­sip went ev­ery­where be­tween The Weeknd and Selena. It re­ally hurt her see­ing Selena be all up on her man. She still feels like they have a con­nec­tion.”
