Her acceptance speech blew him away,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Her vulnerability and strength pretty much left him speechless. It was that night that he really fell hard for her and it was that night they exchanged phone numbers.” How romantic!
Long before the AMAs, the two had another encounter that left The Weeknd wanting more! “Selena and The Weeknd really hit it off at at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2015. That’s where they really got to know each other,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “There was chemistry between them back then, but The Weeknd was with Bella at the time. Had he been single he would have pursued Selena. He was really quite taken with her beauty and down to earth nature. Since then he’s always had a thing for her.” Who knew?!
One person who’s not too happy about this new romance is Bella Hadid, 20, and for good reason. It’s only been two months since she and The Weeknd split and Selena’s a friend…our was a friend. Ouch! “She just doesn’t understand why Selena is flaunting her relationship with The Weeknd,” another source explained. “The least she can do is be private about it,” an insider told us. “Bella never, ever saw this coming and thinks Selena should have called her first out of courtesy, instead of making out with him in public for the whole world to see.” She does have a point!
