Is The Weeknd moving on from his relationship with Selena Gomez with a former flame of Gomez's on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber?
On Friday night, just days after The Weeknd's split from Gomez was confirmed, the "Starboy" singer stepped out with model Yovanna Ventura, who was linked to Bieber years ago, in Los Angeles.
On Nov. 11, Radar Online shared images of The Weeknd with Ventura, revealing that the potential new couple was seen with a number of other people at celebrity hotspot Hyde nightclub. In the photos, The Weeknd sat beside Ventura in the back of an SUV as they made their way out of the venue's parking lot.
As the outlet revealed, Bieber and Ventura were linked back in 2014 and have reportedly remained close as friends ever since.
As for what Gomez reportedly thinks of the potential pairing, a source told Hollywood Life on Nov. 11 that she wasn't quite ready to see images of her ex-boyfriend with another women — even though she has reportedly reconcilied with Bieber.
“Selena is happy that her ex boyfriend Abel is moving on from their relationship but seeing or hearing about him with other women gets her emotional,” a source close to Gomez said.
Gomez and The Weeknd began dating in January of this year and appeared to be happy with one another up until mid-October, when they were seen spending time as a couple at Universal Studios theme park in Los Angeles. Then, just a short time after that, Bieber was caught making his way into Gomez's home.
“Selena had a strong bond with Abel and she feels very connected to him despite the fact that he is no longer her boyfriend,” the source continued to Hollywood Life. “Selena will never forget that it was Abel there for her, supporting her, with love through some scary, challenging health issues.”
“The Weeknd will always have a special place in Selena’s heart,” the insider added.
Gomez and Bieber have been enjoying one another's company for the past several weeks and at times, they have been seen together on back-to-back days.
Prior to her relationship with The Weeknd, Gomez dated Bieber for several years on and off before coming to blows with one another on Instagram over his past relationship with Sofia Richie.
As for The Weeknd, he once dated model Bella Hadid.
