Selena Gomez and The Weeknd are beginning 2017 in a very unexpected way: kissing! The two musicians were spotted on a romantic dinner date at L.A. hotspot Giorgio Baldi Tuesday, and a source tells E! News that these two were very into each other.
And it appears The Weeknd has had a crush on Selena for quite some time.
"Abel though always had a thing for Selena," the source said. "He thinks she is extremely talented and sexy. They recently started talking before the holidays (in December 2016) 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."
"They were there for three hours! Just the two of them," another insider tells us. "They came out and were so happy."
Selena and The Weeknd had their own personal server while they sat in the back room away from everyone else. Afterwards the twosome packed on the PDA outside while they waited for their cars. As the pictures show, these two had no problem kissing and holding onto each other in public.
"They were hugging and kissing," the source adds. "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."Clearly, Selena really couldn't keep her hands to herself! Even though they spent hours at the restaurant, their night didn't end at dinner. The insider tells us that they arrived separately but at the end of the night they left together in his car as Selena's driver followed behind.
A separate source tells E! News that Selena and The Weeknd together is "something new" and that "it's nothing serious right now."
The "Starboy" crooner was linked most recently to model Bella Hadid, but the former couple split in November. Selena, on the other hand, took a 90-day hiatus in the fall before resurfacing at the 2016 American Music Awards. She later called the break "refreshing" and said she since has made a lot of adjustments in her life.
